    Kabobs are perfectly cooked and tender. Excellent service from the owner, who greets every guest.

    This is an amazing restaurant. One of the best Mediterranean I've ever had. I arrived and was greeted with a friendly welcome by Ben. The food tasted great! I would go back every time I'm in Carmel.

    The Mishmash chicken is divine. We especially enjoyed the warm hospitality of Ben and his family.

    Wanna splurge a bit? Get their Gorgonzola filet mignon and have a nice glass of wine to go with it.

    Service was great until the owner shook my hand, asked, "So, do you Yelp?" without letting go of it, and in reply to my "No, not really," said, "Your kind words would be greatly appreciated." Um, I I.
