We ordered from the brunch menu: Harbor omelette and lamb chop Plate. The omelette great portion size and tasty. The chops smaller than expected not tender enough and we sent it back. Then ordered moussaka plate with drinks Mamosa and cappuccino. Ms Iryna was our Waitress; she was pleasant and helpful. We would come back and recommend to our friends.

Thank Roland W T

Arrived for happy hour and were seated outside by the dock great atmosphere and well made martinis and house wine. Apps of calamari and hummus were tasty. We had the gumbo and snapper which were well prepared and the service was excellent. Excellent meal for a tourist haven.

Friday night, 6:30pm, six friends meet at the front door for a birthday dinner and cocktails before touring some of Galveston’s history. We were seated immediately, which instantly set a great mood for our gathering. Adrienne wasted no time introducing herself and promptly began working on a round of Chocolate Martinis to get the party started. Being happy hour, the drink prices were quite watered down while the cocktails remained very much full strength!

It is at this juncture that I must inform you that I am very much allergic to avocado. That being said, I would like to convey the opinions of my dinner friends that the Avocado Hummus Dip served with little triangles of pita bread is apparently to die for. Everyone at the table that tried it raved about it. As a matter of fact, I recall Adrienne nearly losing a hand when she prematurely attempted to remove the dish from the table before someone actually licked the plate clean.

Moving into the dinner course (now several chocolate martinis in) my salmon was delectable. The texture was good and it was juicy, not dry. I ordered it straight up, with no additional toppings as this was my first time having it here and I wanted a good baseline for trying the extras next time.

In summary, a great time was had by all and we are looking forward to returning to try more of the delicious menu selections, while of course enjoying those decadent chocolate martinis!
