This is one of my favorite restaurants when I visit NSB. Everything is so delicious. I try something new every time and I’ve never been disappointed. Eat outside in the back. It’s beautiful.

The food here is exceptionally good. Eating outside in their sheltered garden is wonderful. I had a very tasty frittata with fresh fruit and avocado.

Great service in a tropical rainforest atmosphere. A quick storm blew through and we didn’t even get wet at the bar. The food and drinks are not only delicious but beautiful!

No, I do not believe so. We tried to go on a Sunday and the wait was 30 minutes so we opted to go Monday and walked right it.

Just ate there yesterday during happy hour (3-5p). They offered a tapas menu with multiple pizza options but not by the slice. Drinks: 50% off wine, 25% off draft beer and cocktails. Enjoy!
