Wonderful staff and greeted by two welcoming young ladies. Warm Bread was excellent so was the humus. The shrimp and crab ravioli was delicious. We also loved the entertainment. Our waiter played the tambourine and the cook sang in a beautiful tenor voice. The tables are close but still not taking away from the great food. Don't overdress; it gets... More

Fun night almost felt like being on the Costa del Sol!. Nice dinner choices; lively; and, wonderful wine selections. The surprise was an awesome guitar and dancing! Everyone on their feet having a great time. Looking forward to returning to enjoy the beautiful lamb chops that another diner seemed to truly enjoy. Thank you Michelle for your superb service.

For a french who have been in Turkey, Greece and Italy, the meal was truthfully like good places in the country instead of most of european restaurants in USA. The waiter was great, funny, pro and smiling. They took us to dance between the tables on a typical guitar song ! From the beginning to the end, just amazing !!

The clam chowder was the tastiest of the many servings we had during our drive up the coast. A member of the kitchen staff sang a pleasant unaccompanied solo to a couple celebrating their anniversary.

First, my reservation was the next day, but they were kind enough to accommodate the mistake and seated us in the best spot in the restaurant which is the window! Second, this is truly a gem in Carmel!! This is not to be missed! We ate the Greek Chicken, The Great Greek, Gyro plate, Bruschetta, and not to be missed... More

We went for lunch and it was absolutely yummy, we ordered the chicken shawarma sandwich and the greek combo plate. The sandwich was delightful, every bite was delicious and the gyro meat on the combo plate just melted in your mouth! Good wine pours and we got complimentary baklava for desert which was very tasty. Still thinking about their yummy... More

A group of five visited on a Monday evening. We were seated quickly (we had reservations), and were warmly met. The waiter was very charming and polite, I had the gyros plate ... it was amazing. Others at the table had a variety of seafood and steaks. The food was all outstanding. The owner personally visited our table, and was... More

The service is very friendly. In the middle of dinner the staff (kitchen and wait) all came out and began singing traditional music. Customers began clapping and dancing spontaneously. Quite a moving experience. Food was great as well.

We enjoyed our food here, good portions & friendly staff. As we have found everything expensive in America it's difficult to comment on pricing.

We visited after our trip to the Spa next block down. The spa recommended this spot and they were right! Service, food and wine were for the foodies in us.
