Little bit of every nation and very good!

Been here about 5 times, whenever I get to this area, I always have lunch or dinner. Food is from many nations, so the whole family will be happy.

Took my son for dinner. We each had something different and both agreed the food was very good. They have many choices - it was difficult to choose! Good place to take the family.

One of the few restaurants we found in the neighborhood who had the space to really handle a group for dinner. The international variety is also great for groups - American, Italian, Greek, Lebanese, etc. Mediterranean focus, lots of seafood, veggie options, and they did a gluten-free pizza for one of us with medical issues. Good food, friendly service.

An extensive menu with lots of local seafood. We ate there twice during our stay in Pacific Grove and enjoyed both times. Very friendly waitstaff.

The clam chowder has won awards. It was de-li-cious! I had a cup and my husband had a bowl - it was huge!! He was stuffed when he finished. And it was much cheaper than other places we had chowder at later in our trip!

While on vacation in the Monterey Bay area, we found this place on a Monday night and were absolutely delighted by the people and food. While this restaurant carries al sorts of food, incluing American, their specialty is Mediterranean cuisine (the owner is Jordanian). So, we selected items from the Mediterranean portion of the menu, such as the Greek Feast,... More

We chose this restaurant for dinner on a Friday night. The place was full of locals. Always a very good sign! We split a Gluten-free pizza and a Mediterranean appetizer plate. Our server was Jason. The food and atmosphere was so good, we went back again two nights later and experienced the same quality as before. Went we return to... More

We stay in a cottage up the road from this place and it was our first stop for our 3 day eating marathon. I have to eat gluten free and the clam chowder is to die for. They have other choices as well but I haven't tried them.

Just happened onto this restaurant. Food was awesome! I had the Napoli personal pizza w/ artichokes and my husband had the gyro sandwich. Both were fantastic! We definitely recommend this place!

Walked here from the Inn we were staying at. It was a Monday night and restaurant was pretty full which is a good sign. Seafood combination plate for the hubby and seafood Ravioli for me. We shared Italian garlic cheese bread. We enjoyed our meal. Service was great. Only negative was my mango margarita. I've had much better.
