Had been once for dinner but would likely recommend the lunch buffet. Quality food and the ability to try things you wouldn’t normally get to try. Would arrive before noon if possible. Always a wait for lunch!

This place is our favorite when we are in the mood for Mediterranean food. Amazing buffet. So many sishes this place does great. Always consistent. Also, try the sea bass and the lamb chops. Absolutely, to die for!! Go once and you will be hooked.
