Oh the Greek world of dining, how you have changed from a place to just offering Gyros to a place that have an wide selection of food. This place does seem kinda fancy and will this ferret need bust out the bow tie and top hat, we will see.
They have nice thick menus not too many items, easy to choose from.
Dining area is very nice, spacious and fancy looking. There is an outdoor dining area which is suppose to be very nice but it winter, and we didn’t get a chance to see it.
Pita bread for the table was off the standard fare.
Cucumber Mojito was good, it wasn’t too strong and wasn’t too sweet. The cucumber taste mellowed out the sweetness of the citrus.
Chickpea crusted calamari was very tender meat and semi crispy crust on the outside. The portion they gave you is a decent for a group of 4 people.
Greek Dips, standard dips you might get from a normal Greek restaurant. They came out fancy looking in a nice presentation.
Salmon was cooked very well and the portion that they give for this dish is very large. The flavors that comes with this is great!
Ribeye Steak special was good, the meat was on point with the doneness and cut / tenderness was good.
Feta Ravioli was tasty, it may seem like not a lot of food, but it is rich and heavy. Some people with big appetites might require an extra side.
They had a special for a deconstructed lobster. They basically de-shelled a lobster for you for a mess free meal. It was excellent with many wonderful seafood flavors.
Decent pull of espresso, lack of bitterness and good heat on the Latte.
Chocolate bomb was very rich in chocolate.
Banana tart has a really strong fresh tasting banana flavor to it. The crust had also a warm flakiness to it.
Creme brulee was normal scorched sugar top with an interior of custardly goodness.
Cavo is a beautiful restaurant with good food. The only downfall to this place is that the price of food here is high for decent food. Also it seems to bring in extra cash, the restaurant turns into a lounge with loud music at around 10-11pm which can annoy diners finishing up their meals. The service is good, but not extremely fast.
