Try it out.

We wanted something other than fried beach food. I ordered the Greek salad with shrimp and my honey ate the Shwarma beef sandwich. We also had some amazing dolmas. Service was nice, small place but we will definitely go back.

We loved the difference inside this great place. Staff were almost family like and the food was first class and carefully explained when we didn't understand what the dishes were - we were given little samples - awesome food - and very friendly service

Very very good. I have a hard time finding healthy food in a tourist area, but they have freshly made, healthy food. Uniquely made Mediterranean food. Homemade salad dressing, homemade hummus, homemade etc. Very tasty. I will go back.

We went with friends, two of which are vegetarian. The owner was there which was nice. We all enjoyed ourselves and everyone's said their food was excellent.

The food was quite good and a welcome surprise for us on the Island. The service was kind and relaxed. Don't be in a hurry. Wish they had more of a selection of baked goods, since it is supposed to be a bakery, too.

Complementary hummus to begin the meal was very nice. Outstanding bread. A little pricy but overall not too shabby.

The food is very good and the service is fair. Very expensive for the portions. Too expensive for a local resident such as myself.

This restaurant was a wonderful surprise. We had dinner for two with an appetizer for just under $50 including the tip. We thought this was very reasonable given the high quality of the food. I had the lamb kebabs. They were outstanding.....very tender and flavorful. The tabbouleh was delicious and very fresh. Our waiter, Benny, was terrific. We love the... More

We have eaten here three times and the food is really good, great quality. My only complaint is it's not consistent. Each time, my gyro or falafel was on different bread and different sides given. Putting falafel into a thin pita is a mess, but one time, it was on a thicker bread which was so much more enjoyable. Once... More
