They say no.....but I am telling you there is a new chef and the food is terrible...I had the usual seafood pot...which is great, in a tomato, garlic and butter reduction with a touch of safran...forget it...some miserably cooked seafood in a thick sticky repulsive white vinagrette...I sent it back to the kitchen so the chef could taste it and was told '"the chef thinks it's perfect"...there is NO WAY IN HELL the old chef would feed this to anyone...ditto for the mediocre mezzes (that used to be addictive)...oh well, what a shame the setting is so idyllic......

Awesome food. too expensive and the service is a bit "over" and too much. still, it's a very good restaurant.

Yum! Right on the beach. The mezza are fantastic and the main courses are quite good. Save the money from Mul Yam and stick with Manta Ray!

Nice location, directly on the beach. Menu is rich, the mezze are great, the seafood great. Bonus treat: If you sit outside the local itsy bitsy scrounging cats committee is on mooching mission. You can feel annoyed by it, I just loved it and took several pictures for lolcats...
