Super fresh ingredients and friendly service. This was just what we needed in order to refuel after a hard day of skiing. I got the cilantro lime chicken over linguini and my wife got the chicken souvlaki wrap and both dishes were fantastic.

Excellent food, not the cheapest by any means. Good service. They have a wide choice of dishes of different ethnic persuasions. They have daily specials.

I ordered takeout from the restaurant but upon going into the restaurant, wished I had eaten there. The restaurant itself was lively, but not too crowded. Everyone at the bar - including the waitstaff - seemed very happy and were pleasant to talk to. Food was incredible - fresh, flavorful, filling. The lentil soup was one of the best soups... More

Everyone in our party of 7 enjoyed their lunch. The Gyro was fresh and lamb was perfect (almost didn't order because of older review). The included side salads were very good as well. Steak & mushrooms panini was tender and tasty. My nephew enjoyed the coconut shrimp. Food was very responsible for the quality

I had the beef chimichanga with rice, it was very good my girlfriend had the chicken Slovakia over noodles, she enjoyed it. The other people had thick and juicy lamb chops, ahi tuna, and the house salad with salmon. Everyone enjoyed their meal. The service was good.

This place is easy to miss in Olean if you're not looking for it. But the food is so good it's definitely worth seeking out. The coconut crusted grouper is unbelievable. Service is always good, but because good food takes longer to prepare, I wouldn't go there if I was in a hurry. Also the place can be a little... More

I ate here with my son and his college friends and their families. It was a large group for a small restaurant but the staff was very accommodating. The food was delicious yet very reasonably priced and the service was quick and friendly. Definitely will stop here again!
