John greeted us both time as if we were old friends. We were seated immediately and he was very attentive and helpful. Food is not good...it is excellent! And the service... More

We stumbled across this quaint restaurant on a recent trip to Wilmington and stopped in for lunch. Love the atmosphere, service was great and food was very tasty. Would/ will return and would recommend.

Not only is the atmosphere inviting and unique, but the food is incredible!! I've never ordered anything that was less than an exceptional savory experience. The calamari is hands down the best I've ever had. Our standards for ingredient quality are pretty steep and the dishes here have never disappointed. Seafood and meats are always fresh and seasoned/sauced perfectly without... More

My boyfriend and I drove 30 minutes to eat here. We were ten minutes late to an 8:30 reservation and got turned away because "no one called" and they had "already turned the grill off." Safe to say we will not be going back!

Wonderful location to grab food while exploring the city. The dishes were delicious amd absolutely filling! The Turkish coffee was addictive. And the house salad is a must have. I'll absolutely have to go back again and again to try all the dishes!

Loved our meal last night! Husband and wife team...she cooks, he serves...what could be better! Reminds me of small, family run restaurants in UK and Europe. Appetizer sampler keeps you from having to make a choice and we added a plate of anchovies which, for the anchovy fans in the group, was a big hit. The lamb was perfectly cooked... More

Nice atmosphere in a smaller, but cozy setting. Friendly and professional service. My husband and I split the appetizer sampler, Black Sea combination, and baklava. Everything was delicious! Tender and flavorful meat, perfectly prepared steamed vegetables, fresh dips, and flaky baklava made for an excellent night out. The only reason I gave it four stars rather than five is because...
