We visited Oleander in 2008 and loved it. It's still good and probably the most romantic restaurant in Cirali with a nice garden lit by lanterns. Food was excellent, great sea bream. Superb house red wine. It was very quiet as its tucked away off the Main Street just before you veto the beach.

For our last night we needed something a bit different and Oleander provided it. An elegant garden setting with a selection of dishes that did actually deviate from all the usual delicious but rather similar Turkish menus everywhere else (we did nearly go to Sigme which also looks a bit different but decided it was a bit expensive). We tried... More

I loved it as much as first time (four years ago). Really nice food and a very beautiful restaurant. It's especially enchanted at night with all the lights and trees. Beer was served like how it's supposed to, nice and cool with the glass frosted. Guy knows his stuff.

Offering a range of good value mezze and meals, Oleander is a tranquil place to relax and enjoy the great food and service. Set back off a quiet back road to the beach, Oleander is a very relaxing and beautiful place to enjoy either lunch or dinner. The chef and waiter are very friendly and happy to show and talk...

The setting and layout of the Oleander is really pretty. We had high expectations this was going to be a good experience. But oh dear me, we quickly realized that the numerous staff were more interested in tending the brazier than cooking our dinner or providing any service. There was only one other couple in the restaurant, but for some... More

We especially went to this restaurant because they had some good steak prices.. However they didn't have any steaks?? So I had to order something else I didn't really want as my wife really fancied something else on their menu... Anyway the chicken Curry was passable but when I ordered a Tuborg beer and they brought out an open Tiny... More

Having had pretty much average food in a number of Cirali restaurants we found this restaurant ,just off the beaten track and behind the beach .Hopes were higher because at least it had a proper wooden floor. We chose two mezze but fried courgette was cold and limp served by a pretty miserable waiter. The flat bread was excellent but... More

We went to this restaurant a couple of times whilst staying in Cirali. Both meals were excellent and the staff are really helpful and friendly. Would recommend the calamari mezze starter and the lamb chops which were cooked beautifully. The restaurant itself is in a beautiful setting wit tables under a big tree hung with lanterns. More for couples looking... More
