Dinner on the outside patio was a great place to enjoy dinner while people watching. Service was good and prices very reasonable. The falafel platter came with two packed to overflowing pita sandwiches, which my husband declared very good. And my rice/lentil platter topped with grilled chicken was very good as well. We didn't eat inside, but did walk through.... More

The air is clean. The atmosphere is charming. The tapas are delicious. The graffiti on their outside wall has not been cleaned in years. This is disturbing when all other businesses in this charming area of Newport including the shopping center accross the street quickly remove or paint over any graffiti.

Great hookah lounge. Bellydancers on select nights. Couches could be a little more comfortable. BYOB . Attentive and informative staff. 20% Gratuity added to bill.

Fantastic! The menu was great, the staff was so friendly and nice, the service was some of the best I've ever had, and the atmosphere was relaxing. I spent about 3 hours there with my boyfriend. Everything was perfect. I'd go there weekly if I lived nearby!

Management response:

Hello and we are terribly sorry you had such an unpleasant experience. Unfortunately machines break down, including soda machines and your table was the first table to experience the soda issue. The soda was not "watered down" as you claim, but in fact not well carbonated. To insinuate that we would water down soda that costs us roughly 11 cents... More
