First of all, they only had one white and red wine available, so not much of a choice there. It started with the waiter corking the wine but no new wine was offered. The starter was OK, we had shrimps in garlic and it was...More

And the seafood was good but not great. The wait staff was very attentive and on top of everything. All in all it was a good experience and the night was very enjoyable.

Came for dinner expecting to get a decent seafood dinner. The run down appearance of the place was a give away. Also, there was only one other table. Ordered the grilled Calamari to start with hummus. The Calamari was cut very thick and very chewy....More

We were given a really warm and charming welcome by the staff and had a delicious supper. The entire evening was a delight and I wish we had time to go back again.

Service was great, salad was good view was nice... but it was way to expensive. The fish was not bad but also not very special. So it was not worth the money.

Jean Daou Our menu uses the freshest fish and seafood that is often landed right here on our doorstep by local fishermen...
