Best of Boston

2005 Best Al Fresco Restaurant


Oleana’s candelit garden feels a world away from the bustle of Cambridge. Tucked at a table under the vine-laden trellis, you could easily be in the Greek isles, Turkey, or Morocco. Ana Sortun’s eclectic Mediterranean food—don’t miss the fried haloumi and the flambéed asparagus—won’t necessarily help you pin down a particular region. But wherever the experience takes you, we’re sure you won’t want to leave.
