Off the main "strip", a great bar and restaurant. Set among trees with nice background music, good food and servce. A personal touch, and a very romantic setting. Went three times, need I say more?

Situated on side street away from the hustle and bustle of the beach front this is a great find. There is a café on street level and the main restaurant bit is in the garden below. There are only about 20 tables or so. Service was prompt but not over the top. Good choice of food. Would recommend the meze platter to share. Priced well and food tasted fantastic

Really lovely garden restaurant. Very romantic for couples. We had the lamb casserole for two which had been cooked for hours and was beautiful. Highly recommend.

We had visited Secret Garden in the past and returned with our daughter and her husband expecting as good a meal as we had previously. Service was so-so, food was ok, nothing to rave about. The thing that really annoyed us was the fact that a Malibu and Coke was ordered. The drink that was delivered to the table was not Malibu. When we bought this to their attention a huge Malibu bottle was bought over to prove it was the real deal. However, Malibu tastes and smells of coconut and the cheaper local drink did not. When we received the bill we had only been charged for a local drink, not an imported one. Anybody can fill a Malibu bottle with a local drink and pass it off as the real thing, but unless you are really oiled you would notice straight away. It spoilt the evening as the attitude of the staff when this matter was raised left a lot to be desired. If we want special service and 'real' drinks there are plenty of other places in Olu Deniz to choose from. Its a shame as our previous visits had been good, but we certainly wont be visiting again. Go by all means, just beware if you like particular drinks

this was such a lovely restaurant that we actually went twice whist we were staying in Olu Deniz and we will be returning there next summer.
The ambiance was perfect, it was quiet as away from the strip, the staff were professional and friendly and the food was delicious and well presented.
Whilst holidaying in Olu Deniz we did not have a bad meal but this was by far the best- it was of a totally different level!
I would truly recommend this to anyone staying in this area of Turkey. We are having a get together of all our wedding guests the night before the wedding. We can not wait to taste this brilliant food, roll on summer 2014!
