Lovely quiet restaurant down a side road. Never knew it existed until recommended by a friend and feel I should share the knowledge. All tables had fans overhead so nice and cool, great relaxing music and friendly staff. Food was delicious and Top Banana cocktails went down well. After dinner be prepared for a baby bunny or tortoise to be... More

We dined here 3 times - it was my personal favourite. It is literally a secret garden with trees, flowers, wall gardens and . . . . tortoises and rabbits!!! The food is second to none and service to match. The owner is very friendly and welcoming and not at all pushy - he doesn't need to be. Off the... More

Visited Secret Garden yesterday after checking on board outside for price of beer. Large beer was advertised as 12 lira but on getting bill was charged 14 lira! Told 12lira was for a different large beer and not Efes beer. Surely large beer is large beer! A real con and won't be going back! Nasty staff!!

My husband and I looked up The Secret Garden on TA due to its high ratings and also the possibility of handling baby rabbits! On arrival fairly in the evening we had the restaurant in the garden area mainly to ourselves. It was quiet, with individual fans placed above each table which was handy! We were greeted by the owner/Manager... More

This place was recommended to us and I can say I wasn't impressed with the food. For somewhere that is supposed to be so nice, I've only ever seen a couple of people, if any eating in there. Completely empty when we walked passed last night.

Lovely evening and lovely setting. Love it when he brings out the tortoises to say hello. Food cannot be faulted but doesn't have the traditional Turkish feel if that's what you are looking for. Would definitely recommend a visit.

We visited this restaurant at the recommendation of a family member and it's safe to say we weren't disappointed. We were greeted by Memeht upon arrival who took us down to a quaint little area surrounded by greenery and we were given our menus. The variety was crazy yet everything was reasonably priced. Our food game and the portions were... More
