Secret Garden Restaurant Büyükada - One visit


Upon arriving in Adalar on our ferry, we needed a great place for a lazy lunch. After a quick google, reviewing the positive feedback, we were in a secret garden restaurant enjoying excellent Turkish food.

It indeed was an escape as it is tucked away in the most magical garden setting. We would have loved to have experienced it during the evening; you can imagine the beautiful lights surrounding you.

The setting is very calming and genuinely a hidden garden. You are enveloped in bright flowers and plants, along with enlightening quotes and decorations.

The service was excellent, Engin was very friendly and welcoming, and a pleasant surprise to receive a picture of us in a frame.

The food was excellent, primarily seafood (obviously being on an island). We started with the delicious fish bites followed by meat dishes, and they were delightful, especially the lamb.

Our lazy lunch was a lovely afternoon and a perfect welcome to our one night away on this fabulous island.
