Stumbled upon this delightful Mediterranean restaurant / deli after viewing the ocean from the bluffs in Corona del Mar. I often eat alone, and they seated me in the middle of the restaurant with everyone else, even though they were busy, and gave me great service (usually you get stuck in the corner and ignored). I had a longing for Greek or Middle Eastern food, and they did not let me down. Their domas (stuffed grape leaves) were excellent, as was the hummus and baklava. They served great bread and wine. I look forward to sampling their kabobs, falafel, and kibi. Nicely decorated with wood floors. They need Sunday late hours (close at 3).\r
After dinner, continue the directions to the ocean views given to me [ from Irvine, Jamboree Rd to its end, turn left on Ocean Blvd (PCH #1) ...] : From the restaurant, continue down Ocean Blvd about 10 blocks to Marguerite. Turn right on Marguerite and drive through the neighborhood about 3 blocks to a view above the ocean.
Pros: Ambiance, friendly fast service, good food, social, window seating available
Cons: no parking, but you can find street parking in the neighborhoods behind PCH
