They are not consistent with their hours. If they are a little slow they will close before their posted hours and you will be out of luck. They do not care and will basically tell you that your out of luck! The food is excellent

The food is excellent, infused with Mediterranean flavors. The atmosphere is intimate, but the acoustic is terrible when the restaurant is full. On a Saturday night I could barely have a conversation with yah person across the table.
