“Funky relaxed atmosphere and great food”
Reviewed December 6, 2011

The restaurant is located in Los Rios Historic District which contains three adobe homes built in 1794. The restaurant itself is in the Combs House which was built around 1865 and moved to this site in 1878. That accounts for the funkiness.

There is a great outside patio where you can relax, watch the hummingbirds and feel that you are miles away from anything.

The menu consists of appetizers, wraps, sandwiches, and salads with a heavy Greek influence. They also put together a special tasting plate for us. If you don’t see it on the menu, ask for it. They were very friendly and accommodating. That accounts for the great food.

A nice review with pictures from a local paper can be found at http://foodfrenzy.ocregister.com/2011/03/30/dining-in-o-c-%E2%80%99s-oldest-neighborhood/36659/
