Would go back. Nice change

Sadly, no longer a bakery. We went for dinner. Mediterranean food is a family favorite and most of the other places in SPI all offer the same type of fare. Great service. Food was very fresh. Lamb kabob isn't very large meat portion, chicken was much bigger...both were delicious. The kids all LOVED... read more

We stopped in for a light dinner and ordered Mediterranean Salads with chicken. The salads were delicious...the chicken was cooked perfectly and the light lemony dressing was superb! Better than the food was the service we received! We were taking our order "to-go" and during our wait, we were treated to hummus and pita chips to tide us over while... More

Ms. Melhem-Kuri was gracious enough to ask the assistant cook to turn on the stove again and we were quick to make our menu selections.

We loved the difference inside this great place. Staff were almost family like and the food was first class and carefully explained when we didn't understand what the dishes were - we were given little samples - awesome food - and very friendly service

Very very good. I have a hard time finding healthy food in a tourist area, but they have freshly made, healthy food. Uniquely made Mediterranean food. Homemade salad dressing, homemade hummus, homemade etc. Very tasty. I will go back.

We went with friends, two of which are vegetarian. The owner was there which was nice. We all enjoyed ourselves and everyone's said their food was excellent.

We wanted something other than fried beach food. I ordered the Greek salad with shrimp and my honey ate the Shwarma beef sandwich. We also had some amazing dolmas. Service was nice, small place but we will definitely go back.

The food was quite good and a welcome surprise for us on the Island. The service was kind and relaxed. Don't be in a hurry. Wish they had more of a selection of baked goods, since it is supposed to be a bakery, too.

Complementary hummus to begin the meal was very nice. Outstanding bread. A little pricy but overall not too shabby.
