“My new favorite restaurant”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

My husband and I ate at this restaurant for lunch for the first time on Saturday, May 27, 2012. It was AMAZING. Definitely my new favorite restaurant. Even though they were very busy, the food and service was amazing. John and I had the BEST soup we have ever had. It was a creamy asparagus and spicy chorizo soup and it was to die for. I also had the BEST ahi tuna sandwich I have ever had (and I love seafood and have tried tuna steak many places). I have even had fresh tuna steaks that I caught myself while deep sea fishing. I liked their food so much that I am ordering some appetizers from Rabab's for our deck party next Saturday so I can share the amazing food with friends. They have some very unique things on their menu for the area too--such as some unique burgers and gyros and wraps and even some things to make the vegetarians enjoy their meal (like hummus). The atmosphere is wonderful too.
