A nice relaxed lunch today with an old friend from law school. The Fatosh salads with a nice serving of salmon were excellent. Service was timely and we were not pushed to turn our table. Thank you.

We visited this Cafe last night. Pepe was our waiter and he was perfect! He was just the right amount of attentive, without being the kind overbearing, "My name is... and I'll be your server," type of waiter, where they keep interrupting discussions.

The food? To die for! And the atmosphere was calm, pleasant, just the right ambiance. This is not one of those quicky blue and white Greek restaurants. It has it all! From Persian, to Greek and nearly every well-known Mediterranean dish you can think of.

My husband had the Chicken Marsala and it had my mouth watering, it looked so delicious. He said from the time they set the plate down and he smelled it, it was incredible. He ate every bite and couldn't comment enough, except to say he was full.

I had the Vegetarian Combination Plate. And everything on that plate was amazing. I had never had vegetarian dolmas, but these were superb. The Athenes Fries and cucumber dipping sauce, fantastic. The Falafel and dipping sauce, oh mannnnnn! The Bab Ganosh was incredible too. EVERYTHING was fabulous.

There was only one problem! You actually GET what you pay for! The portions were so generous that we left full, and I had to ask for a box, because I refused to leave one delicious thing behind, when I could have it today for lunch and be in hog heaven again.

I can't WAIT to go back and try something else!

This is our all time favorite when it comes to Mediterranean food. The hummus is lovely. I've never had a bad meal there but the kicker? Their iced tea is the best in town, hands down. Great service and a fantastic menu.

My wife and I have lived all over Las Vegas and we have been driving across town for years to eat the best Gyros and hummus ever. We love this place. The service is fast and friendly and the food is the best mediteranian food around. Can't wait to come back!

I have visited the restaurant on two occasions and thoroughly enjoyed the food and the service. I was a bit disappointed because their menu does not include my favorite dish, lamb chops. Every Mediterranean restaurant should include lamb chops. They do carry lamb kabobs which are very tasty though. The tabouli, hummus and the gyros are really good too. The drinks are excellent. The service is attentive even when the restaurant is busy on a Friday night! The restaurant is conveniently located right on Sahara and easy to find with a giant sign in front of their ample parking lot. I will definitely visit the restaurant again (always looking for lamb chops on the menu)!
