We are told that the name has been changed to Cafe Med. Enjoyed our dinner here, outside; well prepared, carefully and attentively offered and presented. Only negative is that we would have preferred more of a selection than only 2 wines.

Franco and his wife always do such an incredible job. This is the pulpo griego on a bed of scallops. The best prepared purpose ever.

We had the "seafood for two" which includes grilled clams, two lobster, prawns, and some of the most delicious octopus I have had. We also had the rice with gandules and a Greek salad. Every course was delicious, presented... More
