Had a delightful meal at oleana. The service is excellent and very friendly. We ate family style eating tapas sized plates. Highlights include the spinach falafel, soft shell crab special, the pea shoot salad, the moussaka.

I come here every year for my birthday. My favorite spot in boston by far, delicious tapas, quaint little garden patio with bonsai trees and Turkish evil eye ordainments. The cuisine may not be for everyone's taste buds (like my boyfriends :() but it's so...More
