I tried this place and it was just so fabulous I booked again 3 days later. Everything was fabulous and the food, OMG. Found out the next day that I use to work for the owner in a previous employment. Can't wait to go again.

A restaurant featuring food from countries in and around the Mediterranean. Plenty of choices and our meals were excellent. Good coffee, too.
