This place looks a bit down at heel (speaking of the exterior of the building and the seating area) and it's a shame as it's right on the beach and the food seems ok. My tuna melt was tasty - I chose it because it came with lettuce rather than fries. It tasted good although the bread was oily, so... More

Ok, our waitress was a bit flaky, but friendly and the food was quite good. Everything was fresh and reasonably priced, especially given the location right on the beach. Gyros and hummus were most popular.

We ate here twice during our visit to Capitola and both times the food and service were outstanding. We ordered the falafel salads, falafel wraps and the lamb skewers and all of it was excellent. Their homemade tahini was soooo good as well. We ate outside and it was very nice. Give this place a try for sure if you... More

My sister and I ordered the falafel wraps and they were pretty good. Service was excellent since there was hardly anyone there but we ate after the lunch hour. The seating on the outside walkway gave us a view of the beach. Don't be confused that the large deck is theirs, its the restaurant's next door.

A little bit into our visit, we wanted to get something to eat and I tell you, the staff were wonderful. We ordered our food not realizing that they were in the midst of closing, we were their last customer and they sat us after they closed, which we thought was so thoughtful of them. I was wondering why nobody... More

We recently ate here while on a short visit to Capitola. We were honestly concerned about eating here as there was NO ONE else there! We decided to just do it - and glad we did! We had several questions about menu items, and the hostess/server was not only very helpful in explaining things, but . . so very pleasant... More

We ordered lunch from the take out window and decided to come back for dinner. For lunch we ordered chicken skewers and lentil soup. The lentil soup is food processed so there are no whole lentils. It was really good. The portions are average size. At dinner we ordered from their special - 2 rack of lamb plates and 2... More

This place offers take out and even has a cute to-go window to order from outside the building. My husband, baby, and I wanted to enjoy our last night in Capitola on the beach, so we ordered our food to go. I ordered a shrimp kebab plate with rice and veggies. I thought I was going to get two skewers,... More

We could not it in the dinning room because we had a small dog with us. Therefore we placed a takeout order of one chicken kebab with vegetables, 2 chicken kebab raps and and order of French fries. The food was not appetizing. We did not like the sauces used for the raps. The entire food was greasy. The French... More

We think this is one of the best seaside places in Capitola. They cook their own fries from fresh potatoes, which is almost miraculous, and they taste great. The falafels are also wonderful. The view is marred by Zeldas outdoor dining area, but all in all, the staff were great, the prices were good, and the food was better than... More
