This restaurant has a lot of choices on the menu. The food is excellent. Had the tzatziki, Tempura shrimps, pull lamb taco and seared haloumi. Everything was very tasty. Whether you go 2 people or 4 or 6 , you will not be disappointed . Service is excellent. You must try this place. VERY GOOD !!!

Second time at this small, innovative eating spot. All meals are shared, so flow of plates is key. As is the service: description of what you are having, commentary, clean plates, ... My dining experience last night fell short of my expectations; not because the food was any less than exceptional! But the service was rushed, overly casual, and not... More

We celebrated my daughter's 23rd birthday at this restaurant. The food was excellent! We had the scallops, the lamb tacos, lamb sausage, dolmades, chicken - all were good. Service was attentive. Reception could have been friendlier. Don't be in a hurry- sharing plates come one at time with some lengthy intervals in between, giving you lots of time to talk... More

Great food and service. Best is with a group for plate sharing and variety. Atmosphere was great in old home with pleasant decor. Plates came a little too fast towards the end and could have had better spacing but all in all it was great!

Really yum, you HAVE TO EAT THE FLAMING CHEESE THING. So good! Our waitress was really nice. It's a pretty expensive place and the only downside i found was our bills were very confusing. Two seperate bills for food and drink and our server had written under the bills a few different totals, everything should just be one. Other than... More

Great place for small plates in Ottawa! Came here on a business trip as a solo diner - but I can imagine this being a great place for groups to share a meal!

This restaurant is hidden away on the far side of the business area in Ottawa, but well worth the visit. The quality of all the food is excellent and portions generous for a meze style eatery. Lovely warm pita, olives, feta, and garlic dip. Excellent pulled lamb tacos, tender calamari, exquisite gnocci. I doubt there is a bad dish on... More

We attended dinner at this restaurant where it was closed for our private event. It is a snug little place as it is actually one of the old houses of Centretown. The menu had already been chosen for the group, after consultation with the restaurant. First of all, the service was very good. Secondly, the food, more or less Greek,... More

After the disaster of our Ottawa Tasting Tour the night before, we approached this restaurant with some trepidation, heightened by the neighbourhood surroundings. However, this was a fantastic foodie experience. The waiter was attentive and helpful, the menu was exciting and different, and the food was excellent. We devoured the small tasting potions with relish, and ended up ordering extra... More
