No 1 on TripAdvisor for a reason. We dined with 2 small kids which sometimes is challenging but not this time. This time it was pure delight. The staff is very kind, helpful and our waiter was exceptionally good with kids. The food is far...More

We went there based on the rating on TripAdvisor and we were not disappointed. Each plate was above our expectations. If you go there, you have to try either the octopus or the calamari as starters, and then definitely go for a piece of lamb...More

Well decorated, nice and tasty dishes, we had a very good dinner with a shrimp entree, which was great, and an indescribable special duck! Certainly we will return. Highly recommended.

Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but
can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s

narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of
historic and contemporary architecture, including the
iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours,
