My big fat Greek family came for wine and appetizers. We had the platter and every single item was wonderful. They serve Retsina, offer great service and it's a quiet and quaint location. We will certainly go again.

Excellent selection of Mediterranean food in a quaint setting. We had reservations and were promptly seated at the best table in the restaurant. The entire experience was memorable and we will return.

Greek and Italian food of high quality. A friendly and competent waiter, and a music and dance show that made our evening. Don't miss this place when in Carmel.

Food is ok, but it is noisy! They are a themed restaurant. They sing and play guitar which overwhelms any conversation or visit you may have with others. I guess folks that are on vacation like that type of atmosphere. For locals, ....not so much.

We stopped in here for lunch on a beautiful weekend. Our "20" minute wait time ended up being 45 but in the end it was worth it. Typical mideastern fare, well done with generous portions. That goes for the wine as well.
