We went as a party of 4 and sat at the front window. The restaurant is small but quite comfortable. Appetizer of chicken wings is OUTSTANDING! Really delish. Each of us had a different main course. The lamb parpadelle was delicious as was the cod tenderloin. The Statler Chicken and the assorted meat plate were also delicious. Service was excellent.... More

The sitting in this restaurant is limited inside. Food is good but a bit overprice, in my opinion. Service was good.

Three of us arrived for lunch on a beautiful sunny day. We got a seat outside under umbrellas which was quite nice. Service was great. Food was very good- we had the chicken curry sliders and the chicken tacos. And we shared a terra cotta dessert which was delicious. We would definitely return !

Stopped here on the advice of a friend while visiting Andover. There is a nice area to sit outside but it looked like it might rain. It was 2pm and the place was empty but very nice inside and we sat by the window. Orders the iced tea which was refreshing but too much ice!! I ordered the fish tacos... More

I so want to give this restaurant a higher review, but it just doesn't live up to Mediterranean food. The shared Meze is really nice, but the main course choice is limited. We had a dish that included eggplant dip, but it was so smokey that it overwhelmed everything else. The setting is nice though, with a choice of eating... More

My family had a dinner to celebrate a birthday there, and it was a very enjoyable experience. Not only was the food well prepared & presented, but the service excellent. The outside patio was very nice in the summer, too.

An intimate and lovely place with excellent dishes. The mezzanine platter, an appetizer for 2 or 4 is a must: Minted Lamb Meatballs, Grape Leaves, Spring Rolls, Minted Crushed Potato, Falafel, Babaganouj & Pita Chips. Open for lunch and dinner. Wise to make a reservation for the latter. Service is as fine as the food.

This is a friendly, small restaurant that attracts regular diners. The seafood was good and service was very good.

Four of us had an OK dinner. We started with the meza platter, nothing special. Bland veg grape leaves, OK falafel, the baba was good, smoky. I chose a greek salad and the grilled octopus and was very disappointed. The grilled octopus was extremely chewy / rubbery, it really seemed more boiled than grilled and not tenderized at all. Yes...
