Mediterranean
An Epicurean cuisine reminiscent of the silk road served to you with warm Mediterranean hospitality.

Spend some time in our cozy-chic bistro dining room with exposed brick and intimate seating, trying our all-diet accommodating appetizers and flavourful mains from our authentic charcoal grill. From the Middle East to the isle of Santorini, we offer spreads and plates to feed one twice over. Topped with the romantic taste of the right wine pairing. After a candle-lit dinner with us, you might just feel Aegean waves carrying you home. By the time we get to our after-dinner Turkish coffee and baklava, it is our hope and sincere promise that you will leave us warmly, satisfied, and looking forward to your next visit.

As frequent guests a this restaurant we were disappointed in our experience this time. We were there for a birthday celebration and the usual upbeat excellent service was lacking. The apps came out on top of the bread and the meals before the apps were finished. We had a ordered a bottle of wine and were expecting a nice relaxing evening (the restaurant was not busy). The waitstaff spent more time talking to the guys cooking than engaging with the customers. This was very different than our usual expected experience. This birthday dinner turned this from one of our favorite places to go to one where I would hesitate to go for a special occasion. I do believe it was because the owner was not present and his staff took advantage of it.

What an amazing experience. I went there last night for my birthday along with my husband and my mom. The food was absolutely delicious. The owner was super nice and came to our table to make sure we had everything we needed. The service was fast and efficient. I also got a few pieces of complimentary delicious Turkish baklava for my birthday which was the cherry on top of the cake. I recommend people who are looking for an amazing experience and trying delicious Mediterranean food to give this place a try. I will definitely be back!

We chose to celebrate New Years dining at Smyrna as it was our favourite take out meal (twice) over the last year. The dine in experience was perfect and the food, as always, great. All the staff took time to visit our table, ask how our experience was and ensure we were welcomed and appreciated as guests. Plenty of food with the servings, great flavours, great value. Smyrna is where we will take our friends to dine.

Restaurant located on a quiet street close to Spring Garden Road. Very quiet when we were there….only 2 other diners present. Wine very reasonably priced for a Halifax restaurant. My companion ordered the daily special….a lamb shank and I ordered a Greek salad. After a nice appetizer our meal arrived. The lamb shank dinner was not served hot and therefore disappointing. My Greek salad was a huge portion but served with large chunks of peppers and cheese. Did not enjoy. Overall the server and wine were great but did not make up for less than satisfactory meals.

Delicious food in a pleasant small dining room. We were provided with tasty bread and olives at the start. Wine list was short but adequate. Meals seemed to be authentic Mediterranean.
