    This restaurant has a beautiful setting but the food is only average. We have been twice and have had the same experience. But it is new, so maybe they will improve. The location is wonderful and sitting outside is great. Their is a troubadour walking around which is pleasant.

    I definitely would return to try more dishes. Everything looked delicious and everyone enjoyed his or her food. The clams and spaghetti (whether it was red or white) got the biggest raves. I wasn't to crazy about the snapper but the other person loved it. Everyone enjoyed the mussels and calamari. Service was good and she was friendly.

    Our experience the other night was very good. We were seated at a table outside, with a great view of the ocean. Our server came over almost immediately and greeted us. He was very friendly and knowledgeable about the menu. After a few suggestions we finally settled on having the meatball as our appetizer. We were told it was big, but were definitely surprised when it arrived! The server said it was about the size of a softball, and he was NOT kidding. It was very good. For dinner we had the chicken marsala and a mahi mahi that was on special that night. The fish was highly recommended by our waiter, and did not disappoint! It was delicious, as was the chicken. All in all, it was a great time, and we will definitely be back!

    The portions are generous and prices are reasonable. The bread, though warm, was a disappointment. Instead of a nice crusty bread, it was more like a sliced hot dog bun. They served complimentary dips with it, an olive tapenade, a red pepper dip, and olive oil with parsley I think it was. The pasta in the Pasta & Bean soup was mushy instead of al dente. Too much shaved Parmesan in the Caesar salad. The lasagna and the eggplant parm were good. The marinara sauce on both dishes were nice and thick and flavorful. A good family restaurant right near the beach for casual dining.

    We had our Valentine's Day dinner at Cafe Med, and were highly impressed. We had eaten there for brunch before, but never for dinner. The food was excellent, perfectly seasoned, and delicious! The restaurant looks so beautiful now, after their renovations. (It was already beautiful before, but now even more so) The new windows are floor to ceiling, overlooking the beach. Wonderful view! Great service! Friendly and helpful staff!

    Chef Tulio made this a night to remember. The food was absolutely spectacular and prepared to perfection. We enjoyed the grass fed beef, ravioli with mushroom sauce, a special seasoned bread and a fantastic salad. Tulio is a warm and special man, who enjoys what he does and thrives on pleasing his customers. We enjoyed a wonderful breeze from the ocean and were entertained by the amazing musical act (Ghaleb and Pablo). This place is a 10! We can't wait to return!

    We have dined here several times and we've always been satisfied. The quality of the food has gone down. The veal (if it was veal at all) was tough and practically inedible. They comped us a dessert - creme brulee - and that wasn't good either. Too bad because it is a beautiful spot but we won't go back.

    With five guests for dinner, and an automatic 20 per cent added on, my second try at this place,it will not make our rotation. They were not very busy for a saturday night, our wine bottle and drink glasses were empty most of the night. The food was cold and tasteless.while our waaitress was very personable, she could back it up with service.

    Service is spotty. Sometimes, staff walks around and does not acknowledge your arrival. But once they do notice and acknowledge, they are fine. Great food - delicious. Cappucinno was good the first day and terrible the next day. Not sure why. It's a good restaurant with good quality food but I believe they just need to get more organized.

    Dined on 2/2/2013
    This was our third time at this restaurant. It was a Saturday night, but fairly empty. It took 45 minutes, before I flagged down the manager, to complain that it does not take 45 minutes for a Pizza. He did apoligize and paid for our drinks. Stuff Happens, but this shows a lack of care on the part of the waitress. We will be back again, because the food is great and they are usually much better at serving their customers. There was no valet parking either. The band Rocked!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008VIP
    Dined on 1/6/2013
    We were excited to try Club Med due to the oceanfront location. We live in South Florida and are always looking for good restaurants on the beach. Unfortunately, Club Med was a big waste of money. We went to dinner on Sunday at 5pm. The restaurant was very slow...as was the service. There was mass confusion over who our waiter was and then when it was finally worked out, the service continued to be sluggish. Our food took forever to arrive. The Ceasar Salad was watered-down with dressing and the Eggplant Parm had a layer of cheese that was rubbery. We asked for the manager, sent it back, and even got a slight attitude from him. I rarely write these reviews, but I urge you to pass on Club Med based on this experience.

    Read mixed reviews but friends wanted to try this place. Eggplant appetizer is really a ton of cheese covering a slice or two of eggplant, which itself was tasteless. Requested salmon entree be cooked medium rare, but it arrived at table so rare it almost quivered. Finally, the bread -- you'd think perhaps usual airy crispy crust mediterranean style? -- think heavy, dense, flavorless. A great location next to the beach, with a friendly attentive staff, but a serious culinary disappointment.

    Great Foccacia bread served. Snapper entree didn't taste fresh, but the specially made roast potatoes were delicious. Sea Bass entree tasted better, but artichokes in sauce tasted canned. Pricey meals at $28 per for only one side in entree. Beautiful view and breezes from Deerfield Beach thru the open windows. Service was competent.Didn't try the bar.

    Made a reservation through Open Table. The restaurant confirmed. We had a coupon for lobster that they seemed confused about. It stated it came with 2 sides and yet the waiter said one, needless to say we had to ask for the manager. When we got home we found an email from the restaurant stating they had cancelled our reservation. Our reservation was for 6:30 and we arrived at 6:15. Have no idea what that was about ahd to notify Open Table so that we would not lose our points. They really need to get their act together!

    The food was good, our service was excellent, I must say that, I can't remember our waiters name, it was a foreign type name but he was very attentive and caring. The place is way too noisy and not what I would call fine dining. Needs tablecloths for starters, may absorb some of the noise. Noise was most annoying.
