Great atmosphere, owners, and food! We went there last night for my birthday dinner. The owners made us feel welcome and comfortable. The meal started with a tapenade that was outstanding, served with flatbread. I was too embarrassed to ask for more, but would have been content to make a meal out of it. Next, for appetizers we ordered the... More

I believe from reading other reviews this tiny family run spot could provide many different experiences. We happened to be there on a very busy night in Leesburg. A car show was happening in the street and a live band in the Tally Ho. We were able to sit outside on a beautiful evening. Inside I think the music from... More

We came in for an early dinner (5pm). We were the only diners and there was only one man working in the restaurant. He greeted us graciously, then cooked and served our meals to perfection. We had paella and bouillabaisse -- both delicious. Highly recommended.

Chef make fabulous dishes. There are tried and true menu items for the creatures of habits out there and and a frequently updated specials menu to die for. It's also a cozy and intimate environment and you're likely to get a visit to your table from the chef. Highly recommend.

Neighbors introduced us to this great little French Mediterranean ... I'm not sure...It's just really great food prepared just for you...Mohammed is always there to greet you with his wife. The Tagine is my husband's favorite. I keep trying to find a favorite. I try something new from the chalkboard menu he brings to the table each time we visit.... More
