Delicious and super fresh food. It's like a healthy home cooked lunch.. get there early as every time I've been they always run out of most dishes, pity they don't make more. Although maybe that's the beauty of this place. Staff are friendly 😊

Just love the Mediterranean food and spices. The Thursday night falafel buffet is really good and not to be missed.

Absolutely love this stunning gem situated at 231 Bree Street, Cape Town. Awesome vibe, world-class friendly service, smiles galore from all who work there, brilliantly operated by Nirit Saban and very importantly, the most sublime, delicious healthy Mediterranean food imaginable! Highly recommended for coffees, sit-in or take-away's! BRILLIANT!!!

This feels like a catering kitchen that has prepared foods on a big table out front -- really *good* ones. If you're hungry and you want a stack of healthy salads on your plate immediately, stop in. They have meat dishes, too, as well as several preparations of beans (and chakalaka, when I was there).

Really claustrophobic restaurant that serves cold food. Was very disappointed as I had heard great reviews about this Mediterranean restaurant.

Food was droopy and Luke warm. Stands around a lot without covers in open dishes. Disappointingly greasy, sweet and a bit of a waste of eating time.

Anyone wanting to open an eatery should come here to see how it should be done. Wonderful staff, fast service, and the food! So much attention, thought and care in the gorgeous dishes. My favourite food in Cape Town.
