In a nice location, but on a Friday night we literally were the only customers there, except for one table which was leaving when we arrived. The food was ok, nothing exceptional . The waitresses were nice, but the ambiance was a zero .

The food was mediocre, at best. The service was awful. They brought our appetizers after our entrees had come. I do not recommend.

We dined here on the late side following a concert on a night the restaurant had been busy. We were initially told the restaurant was out of house wine by the glass, and another label offered on the menu. We had some trouble communicating to our server that a substitute should be offered, and getting the first glass delivered to the table for the two wine drinkers took a long time, while another companion got a mixed drink long before us. No water was ever served or offered. The main course came too quickly after the Greek salads, and there wasn't room on the table.
That said, the food was delicious, and once the manager or bartender "found" some bottles of the house wine after all, we enjoyed our meal. Greek salad uses good quality feta cheese and Greek olives, and the vegetable kabob served with rice and side veggies is generous enough for leftovers.

We always love to eat at local restaurants and saw this place from Open Table. I made reservations for 9. When we arrived, they were not expecting us and did not have a table ready. I noticed that they pushed a table top next to a booth. I kindly informed them that we had 9 and the space was for 7. She looked at me like I was an idiot......so we left and I spent $500 on dinner at Bonefish and we all lived happily ever after! 🇺🇸

Interior needs maintenance and renovation. Ok for fishermen coming in off boats but does not really compete with most restaurants on the island. Food listings were great but the taste was not that interesting - could have been much better.

We went in for dinner, not realizing they had a fantastic happy hour menu. So, we sat in the bar area (which was a bit dark) and ordered off the happy hour menu so we could try more items. What a deal! All of the food the we tried was fantastic, between appetizers, salads, drinks and entrees. Our server was also wonderful recommending drinks and continuing to check on us throughout the evening. We would really recommend this restaurant if you want delicious mediterranean food.

Nice place in shelter cove. It’s off season on the island so pretty quiet there. Server was very pleasant and attentive. Food came quickly and everything was good. We had the chicken and lamb kabobs.

Our extended family ate here for our annual celebrate everything dinner. My family lives in the Middle East and my SIL’s family used to, so we’ve had lots of Lebanese food. This place is very authentic and tasty. Especially the fattoush salad, hummus, lamb kebabs, flounder, ahi tuna, and garlic sauce. It was a great meal and we will be back.

We know authentic Mediterranean food. I order the Kafta Kabobs, had a weird taste. Husband ordered the chicken shawarma, wasn’t impressed. Sister ordered lamb kabobs, hated it. Brother ordered beef shawarma, thank God he’s a Marine lol. We all had a side of green beans and carrots with one little broccoli. Serving size was a bit on the small end for the price. No complementary hummus appetizer. They forgot husbands beer twice. The best part about the restaurant was the ambiance. My husband and brother said the best part was leaving. Hahaha!

We were glad to get a table on short notice but we now know why. This was a mistake. From the waitress taking 25 minutes to even put in our order after arriving 15 minutes before next table, she chose to put in all tables orders together then swamping the kitchen. It’s a disaster in there. The humus was good. Aside from that salads were sad. My skewer sampler was gross and flavorless. The rice was microwaved. It was just terrible.

Our visit was a bit odd since the restaurant was almost empty with only one other table occupied. It was a Sunday evening around 5:30 and that may have been why there were so few customers. Perhaps they get busy later in the evening. We were a party of 4 and I would say one person loved their meal and the other three felt it was average. Two of us had the lamb kabobs and were surprised at the small amount of meat provided for the cost - $24. There were 8 quarter-sized pieces of meat. I've had Mediterranean food before and the portions have never been so small. The rice and vegetables were tasty but didn't make up for the lack of meat. Another member of our group had beef kabobs ($20) and it came with the same small portion. The member of our group who loved her dinner had the grape leaves appetizer ($8), the couscous salad ($9) and falafel encrusted cod ($18) and loved everything. Dessert was tasty. Service was pleasant.

Great little restaurant with wonderful flavors of the Mediterranean. Booths have miserably hard benches so lingering is painful. Outdoor seats are very uncomfortable as well so perhaps take along your own seat cushion. Friendly staff and yummy food.

Over priced for sub average food. Service is ok but too many people handling each table leads to each one thinking that the other is handling some thing when in fact no one is.

$65 for total bill. My meal, my wives meal was an app, one kids meal and a side order of rice. No drinks.

Over all, I wouldn't return.
