We stopped here for a sheesha and some tea/cocktails. Great location, just off the main street. Good fast service. We didnt try the food but the service was very good as were the drinks. We would go back!

The drinks were very bad and the hookah too. The seating was uncomfortable, and the place is overpriced. Definitely wouldn't recommend it to anyone

A nice place with a good atmosphere. I go for the music and find lots of inspiration to write. It is calming and relaxing. I encourage at least a stop once. Coupon on restaurant.com

We come here before or after dinners so we don't really have anything to say about... More

I love this place, so chill, so casual...Have a coffee or hookah or delicious Meditterean food like Chicken Kabob or Hummus with grilled pita bread. Hang out with your friends or chill out with your computer all day long...I love this place!
