I love this restaurant. The food is consistently excellent. Great selection of tapas. Never disappointed. I use any excuse to go - anniversaries, birthdays, out of town guest. Can be a little noisy but tolerable. One of my favourite restaurants.

We shared three mezes--roasted red peppers with feta, zucchini and cheese fritters and meatballs. All delicious. The fresh bread is outstanding. We ended with very satisfying lukamadies with honey.

I love to experience different foods and have a fondness for Lebanese and Greek food being a sydneysider. This restaurant provided an excellent interpretation of this cuisine. Would recommend the wine list as the beers available were a little limited. The Chefs tasting menu is...More
