We ate here on January, the 1st; had not booked, were accorded a table outside, but under a heating lamp. The atmosphere was good, mostly attended by locals, we started with pancakes, then we had chicken curry and shakshuka, all very good. Almost all personnel was very polite (perfection is not of this world...)

The rather basic interior is set aside by the superb food ( vegan friendly aswell) and accommodating staff .We went there on several occasions and the changing suggestions menu offers you always a new delightfull surprise . But the Black Beans soup makes you always will come back to this place.

The food was delicious- we tried couscous with veg, carrot soup and the sweet potato pancakes. The wine recommendation from the waiter was spot on, Tulip Cab Sauvignon reserve 2010. Efficient friendly service. If you mind cigarette smoke try to get a table inside rather than on the back terrace. Decor a bit ascetic, but the place has a nice buzz, and seems to be always packed, best to reserve esp in the evenings.

Went to dine with my girlfriend with a reservation. The hostess galia received us without a smile and asked for the reservation name. Yes, we were late 20 minutes because of the parking problem around this area and she looked at us strangely and told us "ohh I didn't saved a table for you but follow me anyway". Worth mentioning that the restaurant had some tables available. So she didn't had to say what she said. Also they had our mobile phone number and they didn't called us to ask if we are late or coming at all. On the other side, our waiter eial was great and recommended great dishes.

It was the closest restaurant to our hotel and we tried it almost by accident. Very good luck for us! It's quite simple place, not much design, run by very friendly people. We were late every day and they accepted us without problem.

As for food - is simply great! It was our first encounter with local cuisine and it was very positive surprise. Mediterranean ingredients but done and combined in a different way. Not very wide choice, but we loved every dish we tried. Prices correct, wine good and a nice service. Highly recommended!
