My girlfriend and I stayed in Olu Deniz recently and can confirm it is a beautiful part of the world, take a trip to the famous Blue Lagoon and you will experience near paradise.
We came across the Magic Garden on day one of our holiday. As we walked in the blistering heat a man greeted us from the street. This is not uncommon in Turkey, however the man seemed friendly, he was dressed in jeans and trainers and he really seemed confident in both 'himself' and his food. We were promised the best meal in Turkey should we return. Having searched on tripadvisor for good places to eat in Olu Deniz I had recognised the name. As we were also on a tight budget and had also been promised a discount we thought we would give it a go. We were to eat there twice and in hindsight the food is very average in comparison to English restaurants. I asked for medium steak it came well done but did not complain, my partner had chicken as usual and seemed to enjoy it. House wine was very nice and seemed priced reasonably Overall we got the impression they were doing well in spite of the recession hitting other business' hard. On a positive note the atmosphere is electric and you can expect a complimentary drink in the connecting bar after your meal. Just a little bit of sour taste left when I asked why we were not given a concession as promised on the second visit. The restaurant manager scoffed and said he did not care about amounts totalling our bill but only significantly higher spends. Not good and I shall certainly not return!

Whilst we found the food and the setting OK, our meal would have been better if we had not had to stare at an enormous TV screen (with sound switched off) and too loud music.

I've recently come back from a fortnights holiday in Olu Deniz with my parents. The Magic Garden has great food and a wonderful atmosphere. We ate there on our first night, and we ended up going back to eat there 6 or 7 more times, the food is all freshly cooked and of a very high standard. The kitchen is open to the restaurant so you can see your meal being cooked and the bread being baked, which i think is a very nice touch. I would recommend trying The Magic Garden Chicken. The people are fantastic, they really made the holiday, Ricky and Zola were great fun, dancing in the adjoining cocktail bar, and Byron the owner is a really decent geniune guy. See you next year.
