If you are ever in Minneapolis this Mediterranean restaurant is a must visit. The bread you start off with is absolutely delicious. The food is fresh and very flavorful. Service is on fleek. Definitely a must try!

Our outdoor table for 10 was beautiful and was set up and ready when we arrived (we had called ahead). Our server was very helpful, professional, etc. The bathroom was amazing. The food was delicious. A memorable evening. Would definitely return.
