Had a great dinner. Loved the staff singing -so much fun! My husband said it was the best cioppino he has ever eaten! More food then we could eat, generous pour for the wine. Can't wait to return here and to Carmel.

The food here is fab. There is an awesome number of traditional Greek specialties like spanakopita as well as soups and salads. Our waiter brought us complimentary baklava as well! Yum.

Had a late lunch here today with my wife. We were greeted by one of the owners, Faisel, a charming and very personable man, who offered us a glass of wine while we waited for the table to be set up. The pour was more than generous, the wine fabulous and his personal company outstanding. The service was first class,... More

I was craving Greek food so we stopped here for lunch. The warm and pretty interior lured us in and we were seated by the window by the friendly waiter. Later the owners stopped by to chat, adding a personable touch. I ordered the Greek combo platter with Gyros, a tender chicken kabob, hummus, tazliki sauce, pita, salad, and rice.... More

We had a great meal here, with some (for us) exotic entrees and appetizers. The food was excellent as was the service. Part way through the meal, one of the staff (a cook I think) came out and serenaded us with a Spanish love song. It was great fun, and very well done. We loved the atmosphere and highly recommend...
