Nice atmosphere, good food. A nice place for lunch. They serve every day a lunchmenu. You can eat a la carte, they serve different plates, e.g. North African dishes.

It was a bit hard to locate, and the parking spot is right on the curb, not very convenient. Nevertheless, I had heard a lot about this place, so we walked in... More

We were a party of six staying nearby at the Radisson. We had a variety of dishes and glasses of wine. We enjoyed the food and the service by the owner and her assistant waiter. Some of the dishes were different from Mediterrean dishes we have had in the US but they were tasty in their own way. We felt... More

If you like nice food, don't go to this place. The waiters are unbearable, the food is tasteless and tiny. I won't come back
