The menu is a reflection of the owners good knowledge of this kind of cuisine...they are true... More

My favorite restaurant in Ridgewood. Quiet and very romantic. Great very consistent service. Their grilled octopus is the best I've ever tried.

We had dinner at this lovely place this week. It's a very cozy and romantic place and their food is delicious. We had garlic shrimp and lamb kabobs and they were very good. Also their grilled octopus is to die for. Very tender and well seasoned. The server was very sweet , accommodating and knowledgeable about their menu. As an... More

We had reservations for 6. We were the last couple to arrive. There were no other people in the restaurant except our party. I had to squeeze into my seat between the bench seat to the rear of me and the table right behind me. That was not a good way to start the evening. Our reservations were for 6:00... More

I didn't know how much noise it would take to stop going to a restaurant. Good food should mean enough however, this restaurant is sooooo noisy you can't hear conversation across the table. The owner is lovely. She moved us to a quiet tabl to get us away from a drunken hyena. If you want to risk it, go. I'm... More

I really wanted to like this place more than I did. Although we had a very sweet and accommodating server, my husband and I just couldn't believe the size of the entrees. They were sized more like tapas. The lamb stuffed cabbage was very tasty (all three little rolls), but the paella was barely average and about one-third the size... More

I booked this charming venue for my husband's surprise birthday party. I knew the food would be good - I had read about it. I just didn't think that everything would be so perfect! The appies and entrees were fresh, cooked to perfection, and they arrived at the perfect temperature. Each of the 50 guests commented on the quality of... More
