I am a big fan of Ezme for special quiet evenings so when I passed by and saw it was closed for remodeling I was concerned to loose this gem. Turns out that it is coming back to life as Letiz under the same family...More

If you like mediterranean food, and a reasonably priced menu - this is the place! The seats look like they are in need of reupholstery, but the ingedients are fresh. Service very friendly. Quiet enough to have a conversation.

We eat here each time we stay at the Hotel Palomar. It was enjoyable again. The menu is varied and we all enjoyed our selections. I loved the baked hummus and the grilled lamb (kuzu pirzola).
