“Tapas make a meal”
Reviewed May 27, 2012

Try the tapas, not only a nice variety but very tasty choices. Much better than just an entree and left room for baklava ,and peach cobbler, both very sweet!

“What a change - a positive change!”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

A friendly greeter who was busy but would later seat us!
Food Service was very good since our first visit when it opened!
The food was tasty and hot!
The restaurant filled up by 5:15pm and it was not a weekend just a Monday to Thursday.

“Good food and varied menu”
Reviewed May 17, 2012

We have eaten here several times and enjoy the food, atmosphere and great service. Chef Wil tries to mix it up and keep the menu interesting and he's always experimenting with flavours which we enjoy. Some of the dishes run on the sweeter side if apricots are used for example but generally the med dishes are really tasty. Highly recommend this place but you should reserve a table as its small and busy.
