Solid in almost every way. Only complaint is that the red wines are kept, and served, at room temp--a bit too warm to enjoy a nice red. But the food was awesome. Two of us had the lamb shank and it was cooked very, very nicely, accompanied by well-prepared veggies and very tasty roasted potatoes. Two of us shared a... More

There were 16 of us (a wedding party), including 2 small children. I have rarely felt so welcomed and so at home in a restaurant. The owner assured that he would do "anything you want" to make us happy, and this was not just lip service. He had the little ones served first so that they would not get antsy.... More

A solid meal with wonderful service in a family owned setting. The menu is extensive Mediterranean fare and generally everything is served fast and fresh. My only complaint is really the price. Dinner for two was $95 with 2 glasses of wine and no tip. Better choices in Leesburg for that price point.

I would like to echo the other negative reviews of this restaurant. Very unprofessional staff. Mediocre food at best. Don't waste your time at this place. There are plenty of other (and much better) options in Leesburg, VA.

Did the owner write all of these raves? When my boyfriend and I went for dinner on a recent trip to Leesburg, we were terribly disappointed. We were the only people there at 7pm on a holiday night -- guess that should've been a tip-off. The waiter, who was friendly but unprofessional, sat at a nearby table and played on... More

Over a month before Thanksgiving we had made reservations via telephone for our party. We had people coming from out-of-town, and we wanted to ensure that they enjoyed their visit. The restaurant accepted and verified our reservation and the time (3:00pm). We left our contact information. On Thanksgiving we arrived at the restaurant and found it was closed. Obviously we...

Great food, great service, friendly folks. Have now had lunch, dinner, brunch here and all were fabulous. Have loved both the experience and everything that we ate here. Almost hate to let the word get out.

From the service to the food to the atmosphere, this place does it very well. Stopped for lunch on a Sunday. Had no problem getting seated. The restaurant is located in a historic section of town in a small spot. Don't miss it. Based on the menu selections, we were having a hard time deciding what to order. We decided... More

My wife and I had a great experience for dinner. The food was very, very good (I would say a 4.5), and the service was excellent. Very hospitable family, and we had a great conversation. Would definitely recommend.

I'm no world traveller but in my 40+ years of dining out I'd easilly rate this place among the top 5 restaurants I've been to. I had lunch during a slow day and the chef Jimenez waited on me. Each dish was hand crafted with fresh ingredients. All was beautifully done without presumption. There is a spirit in the place... More
