Family run with a mix of Italian and Turkish - makes for a good menu. Portion sizes are big and offer great value for money. Service is quick. It's a good restaurant for a quick bite, not comfy enough to want to linger for the night. They serve beer and wine or you can take your own.

Everything about this little find was excellent!!! Mediterranean style, Italian and Turkish, great combo!!The service was exquisite, we chose to sit at a little table on the sidewalk, very attentive service. However, also Inside was very intimate and romantic seating! Ordered by far the best lasagna!! Ate every bite and it was a big serving. Garlic bread-also yummy and perfect!!... More

What a lovely little gem this place is..... Good advice from lady waitress on what to order to try different Turkish dishes, very authentic and delicious food with exceptional service. It's a must to try this Mediterranean Restaurant when dining out in Surfers Paradise :)

Normally I am not a big eater, but I was able to eat a whole pizza. One of the best restaurants ever with the best pizza I have ever tasted. I recommend this not only for the food but also the service. A perfect mix between traditional and modern.

Discovered this small restaurant after walking the streets of surfers paradise and it is truly a gem. Serving sizes are generous and the food is rich and delicious. Staff are friendly and kind, and prompt service as well. Highly recommended!
