Excellent service and delicious food, near the intercontinental. Seafood and appetizers were great. Loved the wafer-thin breaded and fried zucchini and eggplant chips with tzatziki.

I had high hopes coming here, but the experience was highly over priced & not at all comfortable. Don't love sitting so close to other diners that I know all about them, & don't want to. Pick your table wisely. Service & food were average,...More
