EAT IN THE COURTYARD (RESERVE A BUNGALOW IF POSSIBLE)
Get it--the food is solidly good, with moments of actual excellence, so don't worry about whether you'll enjoy the meal. The appetizers are varied, the entrees varied and delicious. I don't even remember whether it was "Mediterranean leaning" or not, because what I wanted was always on the menu, no matter what mood I was in! The back patio is definitely the spot to ask for, and if you can, reserve a bungalow, or you'll be looking at the empty bunglaows thinking "it'd be so cool to have been seated over there!" Even though the crowd is a little after or before clubbing, the atmosphere is very welcoming and accessible. It became one of my favorites after th second visit. Enjoy, no question a great choice on a whim, or on short notice. For TRULY upscale, try hitting The Little Door.
