Great

This is a great place to relax and have a great meal with several drinks, atmosphere is quite nice, service was great and the food fantastic. Their Chicken with green olives is worth the trip to have for a meal.

We love Mediterranean food so maybe we're biased, but Olivia had it all. Cheerful service, atmosphere and great food at a reasonable price. My wife had the chicken in olives and I the Shishlik and both were delicious.

The schwarma plate is to die for (ask for this instead of as a wrap- it's not on menu). Great service and so friendly. Make a reservation!

Not that what's left won't be good. The menu here changes all the time, so I can't really offer recommendations. The garden is delightful to sit... More

Loved the food, wine & atmosphere. My salad was delicious. My husband's chicken was fall off the bone tender & amazing. I order a house red wine. It was French & really good for a house wine. I will definitely go back.

The service was very efficient and professional and the atmosphere was charming. Greek and Mediterranean food like the Moussaka and the meatballs in red sauce with parm bread were seasoned perfectly.

The restaurant is located in the best area to hang out at night at Isla... They have a beautiful yard out back which is a great place to sit for a romantic dinner and enjoy a glass of wine! On the menu - authentic and diverse food from a wide range of Mediterranean and Mid-Eastern origins. Service was great and... More

Nicely done Israeli/Greek/Lebanese food in a comfortable interior patio. The atmosphere is very nice. You will probably need a reservation.
