I went last night. The menu I was presented with did not match the online menus. Now, maybe some of the things in the online menus are lunch only. But, if so, that should be noted online. Food was OK. Service was spotty. I have...More

We had an excellent dinner at the loading dock last Friday night. The lamb burger, falafel plate, and american burger were all great. The dinner room was not crowded but the atmosphere was very pleasant and relaxed.

This small food joint offers excellent cooked Mediterranean food, refreshments, coffee, cakes and selected groceries. They do have an eating place like a cafeteria. It is worth a visit if one is living in that area or passing through.
