Being new to Palo Alto, I am trying out the local eateries, and this is a Greek style Mediterranean restaurant. Very inexpensive with typical Greek food, so it was exactly as expected. A bit rough and ready but inexpensive and wholesome food.

We stopoed by because we wanted to try the lentils soup. Once we were inside we decided to also try the lamb kebab dish and closed with a Turkish coffee and a nutella crépe. The service is great, the dishes great, and the location too!
