An eclectic menu with a variety of entree types for dinner, simply called the main course. A long list of appetizers but one soup, organic chicken soup with Israeli Couscous and numerous pasta dishes. The day we went it was quite windy and at times drizzling. Beautiful veranda (actually front of the restaurant facing Northern Blvd.) Service was attentive &... More

Ordered the grilled shrimp over orzo. Nice sized portion and cooked well. Appetizer of chips and guacamole delicious! The waiter was extremely attentive and polite. Would have eaten outside but the weather was way too hot! My husband had the lambchops and loved them. He said they didn't smell and were not too gamey. My girlfriend's husband ordered the red...

They never disappoint.The food is excellent, and the service was almost as good. They have an extensive brunch menu and their portions are healthy sized. There is a definite continental flair to...

The salads are delicious, the hamburger is great and the service is excellent. Dining outdoors in good weather is a bonus.

I was not impressed when I ate there about a year ago but my friend loves the place so I gave it another shot. I had the salmon, which was delicious and swapped the couscous for fries. ( Not the HEALTHY choice, but they were great!). My friend ordered her "regular", mushroom ravioli, and was a little disappointed that the... More

Food is upscale and the outdoor dining is lovely making this an excellent choice for a lunch. I've been told it's a great place to hold a special gathering indoor or out as well. Food presentation and service top notch.

My husband and I have eaten here many times, had dinner parties and dined with friends. You are always greeted with a smile, prompt service and the food is great. The fried zucchini chips for appetizer are delicious as is the grilled octopus. Fresh fish is always on the menu. In the summer it's so delightful to enjoy alfresco dining... More
