This is a great place to eat. The food is great and so is the service. If the weather is nice, sitting outside is pretty amazing. The menu is very extensive and pretty diverse (from Greek/Mediterranean to Sushi) but all the dishes were excellent.

The sea food at this restaurant was not fresh, the shrimp and salmon bad, the chicken and steak was ok, the servers were lack luster. I would return, but would never get any seafood again.

Great spot to #chillaxin with tapas and cocktails in between shopping. My most favourite cocktail at this restaurant is the sparkling sake.
