Looking for a place for a romantic date, I found this restaurant online. I called first, to inquire about reservations and the belly dance presentation. We got there by 9 pm on a Friday and not only enjoyed a delicious meal, but also a very artistic belly dance presentation. This restaurant is a bit pricey, but it is worth the... More

Really nice place. Great view of San Jose lights at night. Waiter was incompetent and indifferent. Asked for Drambue. He said they didn't have. Went to bar and bartender had it. Ordered seabass waiter came back and said they were out. Offered tuna or mahi mahi. Then came back and said no mahi mahi. Sucked on ice in empty glass... More

LOVED the view. Food was delicious (medium rare steak was perfect). Prices are high, but the view is priceless. Entertainment included too (belly dancer) which was fun. Waiter was indifferent.

First time visit to this restuarant, whose location and panoramic view of the central valley is spectacular. Sharing with a group of friends we taste dishes of delicious Middle Eastern food and its international gastronomy. This restaurant has the advantage of offering spaces also as party room. Recommended to share with friends, in groups, and families. The staff is very... More
