Great Place!

My husband and I popped in here for lunch. We did not have a reservation and it was Saturday lunchtime. They told us it would be about 25-30 minutes, but if anything opened up at the bar we were welcome to eat there. A few minutes later two seats did open up so we went in and sat down.

We've been here several times and the service is quite inconsistent. Food is decent and the specials can be good but after leaving, sometimes I question the overall value of what we received. I had the gyros plate on this last visit and it seemed to me they skimped on the meat. The bread basket we received also was very... More

The outdoor seating is so nice. The food is good although more on the healthy side. They were understaffed went I went last, so service was a bit slow. I thought the food was overpriced but I'm not a vegan or vegetarian.

My wife and I had a date night and thought the atmosphere and food here was great! They had several vegetarian options which was very important to us. We didn't have a reservation but were still able to get a table. Consider calling ahead because this little place stays busy!

We were advised by locals that this was the best place in the area to get a takeout lunch. Service over the phone was polite. I had issues with the quality of the food provided. The person who took our order recommended the salad with steak. The greens were wilty, not fresh or crisp. Some pieces of lettuce were inedibly... More

Had the shrimp Arazu appetizer, perfect, shrimp were still firm, crispy batter and perfect sweet and spicy sauce. Sheesh-leek marinated roast lamb for an entree with excellent grilled veggies and rice with cranberries...and tzatziki. Baklava drizzled with honey for dessert. My guess is you need reservations even mid-week. Can't imagine anyone being disappointed they stopped here.

The menu has many options to choose from, giving you many mouth-watering Mediterranean dishes to think about, while you sip the finest wines and devour your Basil Tomato soup. I would recommend anyone to try this place at least once, even if you think you don't like the food of the Mediterranean

Every time we dine at Arazu, we are treated with wonderful service and delicious food. I never hesitate to suggest to visitors of our town, they have to make a stop for lunch or dinner at Cafe Arazu. Ben & Penny have done an amazing job of creating a fantastic atmosphere for either a quick lunch or a special dinner... More

Quiet place to go with a few friends and have a great meal. Bring a jacket in the winter, a little drafty in the front room.
