Everyone in our large group absolutely loved their meal. The fish I ordered was outstanding. Everything cooked to perfection! I believe it was the sea bream or sea bass. ( the first on list and what the server recommended). The servers were so helpful with the wine list as well. Loved their whites. Such a great place with a warm... More

Outstanding food. Portions were sizable and very very tasty. Staff was helpful and polite. We ran into friends there who are now local to the area and they said that this was their favorite restaurant...I can see why!

Got in late and wanted dinner near the hotel. While fish and chicken dishes were fine, nothing inspired or unique. Maybe should have stretched ourselves and gone a little further. Still Kosher if you want that and a nice wine with dinner. Not a bad place to have a meal

Specifically, the grilled eggplant with tahini and the tabouli salad. Don't miss on these great flavored. The ambience is wonderful and the location is accessible within walking distance from all major hotel. This is NOT a falafel... More

We ordered the upper floor for a bunch of friends. It was a great and quite place for us to enjoy the company & eat well. The starters were very good but in small plates / portions. The main dish was good and humbled. If you are hungry- it might not be enough. For desert we got tea and sweets.... More

A nice restaurant with good food, especially the mango chicken was very good. There should be more staff, since they were very busy all the time, and the table next to ours stood uncleared for a long time after the guests left. The interior is a bit dull, but since the restaurant is usually quite lively and full of guests... More
