Nice, breeze, nice table clothes, nice furniture pool, terrace, service etc and beautiful people.
The food, because it is alos about food is finely tuned to the Mediterranean spices, not too much, just the perfect hint of the flavor. Menu is generous and long enough to provide every one something to pick up.
on te improvement side, service is diligent, though a bit slow in bringing the dishes, now that was a greater opportunity to enjoy the place

The pita bread and the hummus did the trick for me. Simply perfect.
The food is decent though. But the service can be tweaked a bit. People seemed latargic and slightly obligated to serve. The warmth was lacking.

Kefi brought back strong memories of my younger days travelling around the Greek islands, or kicking back in the south of Spain. The rooftop location and setting was very reminiscent of restaurant spaces in the Med, and if it wan't close to the ocean at least you had the rooftop pool nearby.

But while the memory evoked a time and place, the food almost transcended my Mediterranean experiences. The entree of spanokapita was exceptional - light and full of flavour - perfect. A hard act to follow, but the lamb tagine was up to it. Rounding out a fullsome and moresome meal were the house bread, palate cleanser and berry mocktail.

Were there mosquitos? Yes, but no worse than many of the Meditarrean restaurants where I have eaten over the years. Possibly the best Med restaurant this side of the Med.

Mediterranean (or almost) kind of food ... good when you need to make a pasue of Indian food.
Located on the roof of the hotel.
Prices, including all hidden taxes, are high.

A pleasant change to Indian food with good taste and good ingredients. Beware of the very angry mosquitoes if eating outside
