The food was wonderful
HELLO, Thanks for the kind words! We're so glad you had a great time in with us and enjoyed your food and drinks. I hope you come back again soon. Have a great day GOKHAN CAKI / GM
Most amazing experience ever. They just got a new chef and he put out such a delicious menu. We literally wanted one of everything. The kanafeh dessert was so beautiful. The chef was so friendly and personable. Made a lasting impression and I cannot recommend enough.
Amazing food! Great service excellent location. You will not be disappointed!
The menu is very limited but everything on it is tasty and we'll prepared. My mom ordered the sea bass but got trout instead. Waiter was not very good. The mussels were plentiful and delicious. I hope they expand the menu a bit because it's pretty boring.
Food was very good. Service attentive and friendly. Liked the Mediterranean music- still ambiance seemed ordinary. Maybe staff seemed rushed. But minor criticism. I will go back.
Very fresh delicious Mediterranean food: dolma exceptional, hummus and Babba ganush yummy, the octopus to die for
SUSY, thanks for the kind words! We're so glad you had a great time in with us and enjoyed your food and drinks. I hope you come back again soon
Skip the calamari, everywhere else on the peninsula does a better job. Noisy and cold outside seating. Overpriced.
And don't bother registering it here as they give you Zero Open Table points.
Anniversary but not acknowledged by restaurant
We had the lamb patties for an appetizer, which came with roasted potatoes and could have been a meal in itself. I had the salmon, which came with rice and garbanzo beans with a small greek salad. The salmon was perfectly cooked.
We were outside, because of Covid. They put us by a heater and it was pleasant.
Everything was great, but we didn’t get a table by a heater so we were cold!
Super friendly staff and great food in this lovely place.. they went out of their way to make our anniversary special!
Food was excellent and service was very good. The only challenge is due to the Covid restrictions eating outside on the sidewalk on a cold windy evening was less than ideal.
Food was very good, service a little slow, very expensive for Mediterranean food, but then they’re in downtown Carmel, Ca. Chef and owner was a joy to talk to! They need to change the name of the restaurant to a name that denotes Mediterranean food, I think. Music was lovely when turned on. Very nice late afternoon out.
Ilyas was a wonderful attentive host and made sure that we had everything we needed. We will be sure to come back here on our next visit to Carmel!
Met friends who came to town
Food was great. We had the Mezze platter to start and potatoes which were both delicious. The entrees were cooked perfectly. And the server was super nice. It's good to support small businesses that are doing their best to stay alive during this pandemic and this one is easy to given the excellent food and service!
Food was fantastic!
Every menu recommendation made by Ileas, our waiter/chef was spot on!!!
Was lucky to score a private table tucked away in the corner by the restaurant window. The sampler platter with a side of fries was plenty to split between the two of us.
The service was great and the food very good. A little pricey compared to similar restaurants. We were charged $2.00 for extra pita bread when we ordered hummus with maybe one pita cut in eight wedges. We had a little of everything: vegetarian, lamb and chicken and all were great. We were also seated promptly for our reservation on a busy night.
Amazing Foood the Wait Staff was really nice. It was a cold night would have been nice to have a heater.
This was our fist time eating here and we enjoyed it.
Great kebabs!! Also the Meza appetizer plate was fantastic. The team is doing a great job serving outside keeping us warm and very kind - we loved our sever Ilyas! I
Amazing service, food and attention to detail
Manager/Chef very accommodating to our unique requests
Made reservation on line-went to restaurant-it was closed and no one present-update your site!!!
Overall great experience. In these times of uncertainty I was glad to help a local business. Unfortunately some ingredients weren't available but it is not their fault as we are all going though some struggle. Great restaurant and great people!
The food was excellent. Took awhile to get greeted for seating upon arrival and took awhile to get the check at the end. I was not in a rush, so no biggie. The staff were friendly and courteous.
This was a wonderful and fun outdoor dining experience. The waiter was extremely nice and attentive. Apparently they just took ownership 3 weeks ago and are very detail oriented. I highly recommend the appetizer platter that features all the dips and appetizers. I think it is Meze Platter. All the food was excellent. It was a little pricey, but that may be the norm for Carmel. I am from the Midwest. Go and I think you will enjoy it!
The food was absolutely wonderful and the wait staff was amazing. Although everyone was so nice, there was one BIG issue. The hostess clearly had chest congestion and wheezing when she was talking to us and then we heard her coughing loudly with a terrible wet cough just a few feet from our table. That was very disturbing and unacceptable during this global pandemic.
Great service and food
Fantastic experience! The food was delicious. Some of the best Greek/Turkish food I’ve eaten in a very long time. The staff were very attentive. Had blankets for us which was a bonus. I forgot my desert on the table and they called me back. Would dine here again !
Great place ... Great food ... Excellent service ... Staff was most accommodating ... Highly recommended
Great service, wonderful food.
the food was great if you like mid-eastern food which i like. great waiter but we had to sit outside which is normal but the attempt to provide that was very bad. i feel sorry for these people because they just opened in july amidst the virus.
We ate here last Friday night (the night of unfortunate rain), but the restaurant did all that they could to make our outdoor dining experience a pleasant one. They were able to cover our table with umbrellas, and put 2 heat lamps near our table to keep us as comfortable as they could. The service was impeccable, and the chef even came out to see how we enjoyed our meal. We had a wonderful range of dishes between the 4 of us. We had the beet salad, mixed greens salad, Haloumi cheese appetizer, whole fish, pawn pasta, grilled salmon, and lamb meatballs. Every single dish was cooked to perfection, with a good array of spices and seasonings that were unique to the style of dish. We ended the meal with the dessert was delicious and filled with honey and cheeses (served warm). Overall: I would love to return and be able to eat inside one day, or possibly with the weather is better.
Great food, great service. Had a very nice evening here.
Food and service was excellent. There are heaters near every table. We were fairly warm while dining outdoors during chili weather.
Food was very fresh and wonderfully prepared. Service was excellent and the staff could not have been friendlier. Small, well-chosen wine list. Will definitely return.
Good food; fun eating on the sidewalk. Appreciated the heat lamp nearby. Service was good but not great; never got our water glasses refilled. Dessert, which should have been refrigerated, came out warm instead and wasn’t as enjoyable because of that. Overall, though, we enjoyed our dinner.
The food was great and very fresh! I had chicken skewers which were tender and very tasty. My husband had lamb chops he said were excellent. Overall--experience was great. They were pretty busy and seemed to only have one waiter though....
