“Tasty food for good price”
Review of Secret Garden

I checked all the eating possibilities on the island and I have to say that Secret Garden
is the best offer you can get here. For good price I ate tasty (also european) food, like schnitzel. It is not open on some days (as far as I remember its closed mondays).

We were given the heads up about this little gem by a local and they were not wrong! Hidden in the center of the Salt Raker Inn, this lovely restaurant/bar has it all. It is a covered patio surrounded by trees that keep it cool and quiet. We stopped first for drinks one evening and found a friendly bartender seemingly waiting just for us. The rum punch was perfection in a glass. The service was fabulous and she even entertained the baby. We went back a few days later for breakfast and we weren't disappointed at all. As a matter of fact it was so good we went back for dinner! I had the Chicken Schnitzel (the owner is from Germany) and it was perfect! The peas and rice (a staple side dish in Turks and Caicos) and cole slaw were flavorful and plentiful. If you are looking for a quiet peaceful place for a delicious satisfying dinner, this is your place. Thank you to Ruby for the excellent service and to Erika for the escort out in the rain under your gigantic umbrella! We will be back again some day!

The Secret Garden is hidden behind the Salt Raker Inn....it is literally a lush, secluded eating and drinking spot that is it's own little world. That's where the nice part of the secret ends. The food is ok. The service....even by 'island time' standards, is horrible.

We ate there 2 separate times. The first time, the wait was normal island time. Willing to accept as normal, we went back a second time. First and only diners in the Secret Garden for about 30 minutes, it took a full 75 minutes for a Chicken Schnitzel (very good, by the way) and a chef salad to be delivered to our table. Nope....way beyond acceptable. Won't be back.

This restaurant is in a secluded back yard, perfect for breakfast or dinner. We had breakfast here one morning while we stayed at the Manta House next door.

I have to agree with poharris below. Many of the so-called places listed are not operating for different reasons, and lack of choice is a very real fact, This gives a very good opening for Secret Garden as one of the few options but they do not step up. Food, prices and setting are not terrible (a big differentiator there) but the service was so bad we didn't return despite lack of options. Server was abrupt, but when we told the apparent manager on a not-busy night that we had been waiting 50 minutes for our simple order we were scolded that we just had to wait our turn; the back of a line with no line.

Just uncaring service, spoiling what could have been a return visit.
