This restaurant, located in San Francisco's gay area is named after the famous activist Harvey Milk (Sean Penn in Milk's movie). The atmosphere is nice, waiters are friendly and food is good. A nice option if you want to visit the area.

Had the daily drink, beers and small plate of gyros. The place has a good location in Castro and the menu should please any taste. Good atmosphere. The gyro was good, not gastronomic, but good. Service was great.

The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San
Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart,
the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As
one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in
the United States and currently its largest, it
remains one of the epicenters of activism in the
nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete
with bars and fashionable eateries for attention,
