“Excellent!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013 via mobile

Delicious food! Lovely atmosphere! Wonderful service! I had the Dametra Salad with mixed local greens, toasted walnuts, red apple slices, Gorgonzola cheese crumbled on top with a fig vinaigrette and incredibly delicious hot green tea with fresh mint and honey. A tasty, delicious, satisfying and memorable meal! You won't be disappointed!

“the best for 2013”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

yes,, this is a great place to dine, very small, and hard to get in, so make reservations, but everything on the menu is good, and you get entertainment to go along with your meal

“Still Impressed”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2013

We came here based on the tripadvisor review, and it didn't let us down. Food was probably the best and most authentic mediterranean food and experience we've had in the US since our trip to Greece a few years ago. AWESOME!

“Yum”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This place is super. Food and service are outstanding. If you only stay one night - be sure to make a reservation as soon as you get in.. the place is well worth it. It's small and the owners are very very friendly... where else do you get a free glass of wine if you have to wait on your table?

“Waited two days for the meal and it was worth it”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

We had to make reservations two days out because they are so popular. And it was worth the wait. The restaurant is very small with only 12-15 tables in all. But they do an excellent job of keeping everything moving. And the food is great. We started with the tzaziki with pita and finished with the lamb kebabs. They had one of our favorites wines (a malbec by Diseno). Before we were seated, one of the kitchen crew came out and sang a song to a table while the owner played a mandolin. It felt very authentic.
