“Romantic meets authentic”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 July 2014

This romantic, charming outdoor atmosphere is perfect for a night out in turkey. This family owned restautant has seating outside right next to the fountains and ruins. The owner, Jeff, greeted us very warmly, offered us tea on the house, and sat with us a bit to describe the history of the city and how his restaurant came about. The food was authentic, very delicious, and resonably priced. Vegetarians- go for the eggplant! Definitely highly recommend it!!

“Lovely location & Tasty Food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 July 2014

This restaurant offered a lovely terrace with a great view of Roman Aquaducts. The food was just as lovely with a fix of traditional Turkish mezes and so out of the box mains at very reasonable prices. The service was exceptional, don't hesitate, you will not regret it. Bon apétit!

“Atmospheric Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 July 2014

Wallabies Heavenly Garden is the perfect spot for a nice meal after exploring the various archaeological sites of Selçuk. Jeff is a very welcoming host, and as a solo female traveler, I felt relaxed and at ease. The delicious food, wine, and atmosphere compliment each other beautifully.

“Exceptional food & location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

Had lunch and dinner here several times during our extended stay in a Selcuk; very clean and a unique Lentil soup followed by traditional Turkish food, very fresh and with a slightly different twist.
Also they accommodate non smokers easily as there is a large inside area; the angora wine is quite good. Also have crepes and other menu choices and consistently excellent service!

“Favorite spot in Selcuk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 June 2014

We stayed in Selcuk for 5 nights - and ate at Wallabies on 4 of those evenings. As many other reviewers note, Jeff, the proprietor, is a great host. He'd see us walking down the street and be greeting us before we got to his place. He is very attentive to and personable with his guests. The food was delicious. Between my husband and I, we tried 7 different dishes - all well prepared and nicely presented. - five lamb dishes including the "surprise" dish, the chicken stuffed with spinach, and beef salad.We enjoyed each one, but agreed that the beef salad was a favorite. The location of Jeff's Heavenly Garden is heavenly - the ancient aqueduct on one side, where you can watch the storks tending to their babies in their nests perched on top, and on another side, a pool edged with pots of flowers and the umbrellas of nearby cafes. We enjoyed a bottle of wine each night, at a reasonable price, and had our first taste of Raki here. It's also a great place to stop for a beer in the afternoon after hiking around Ephesus and other sites.
