Cafe Mediterranean - Hyde Park Ratings and Reviews
So welcoming, so delicious, so fun!
Dined on a Tuesday evening with 4 friends, wow! The owner, Fahri, was amazing. He was very attentive and very helpful. His cuisine was the real deal! Authentic housmade Mediterranean that was not only delicious but very healthy. Will definitely return with husband and friends.
Service was "spot on"!! Unique Mediterranean Cold appetizer sampler, octopus & zucchini pancakes were great for sharing in our group. Nice patio, chicken kebabs were tender & nicely spiced, lamb perfectly rare & even veggies were scrumptious. Nice wine & beer selection, a little on the pricey side for a family... Worth the splurge.
Our first time there. Was recommended and all my expectations were met! Everything was excellent...from the time we arrived, the menu was wonderful. Love Mediterranean food and it was healthy! We enjoyed good wine with our meals. Very quaint place. We will return with our friends! Worth the trip from Florence, KY!
Can't get enough. Everything I have had on the menu is so delicious. I have ordered across the board and the flavor combinations never disappoint. I now over order every time because I can't make up my mind. This is absolutely one of my favorite restaurants in the city and I would highly recommend to anyone looking for a fresh and flavorful meal.
Meal out with son visiting from out of town. Enjoyed food, atmosphere, service. I thought value was quite good - though neither of us had an "adult beverage" - so that kept the tab down, for sure. Sunday evening crowd wasn't overwhelming - great night to patronize the place. Just love the fact that at a Turkish restaurant, the charming owner(s) were quite likely Turkish. So food was very likely authentic - though, sadly, I would not know the difference. Makes me happy that diversity of ethnic food is increasing in our fair city! I had the lamb kebob - really great. My son had the chicken kebob - we each tasted the other and gave thumbs up. Portions are generous. Lamb and fresh veggies. Hummus and bread at the beginning are to die for. Will return, for sure. Oh, very much enjoyed the Turkish hot tea - a black tea, freshly brewed. Dessert looked great, but my small appetite could not manage it. 😕
We have never had a bad experience here. The owner takes great pride in his establishment and that is reflected in the whole experience at Cafe Mediterranean...the service is impeccable, food absolutely delicious. We started with hummus, the best around. I had the lamb shish, which was total perfection! My husband had the doner kabob, his favorite! Kavaklidere red wine is so good with both dishes. Finished with baklava and Turkish tea. We left with very happy stomachs!
The service and food always spectacular here. The wait staff are very friendly and attentive without leaving you feeling rushed, and my water glass was never empty. The food is excellent as well. We have tried the hummus, baba ganoush, falafel, zucchini cakes, and a few different kebab platters in our last couple times here, and all of them were delicious. Portions were generous without being over-full. I would definitely recommend a visit, and we will definitely be coming back!
First time at the Café.....not sure why we hadn't been here before but loved it. Food was excellent, service and host were excellent, and they were extremely helpful with ordering since it was our first time there. The food was excellent, especially the apps. Beer and wine list were good, and the complimentary tea at the end of our meal was a nice touch. Host and server made us feel like family, we'll be back a lot to Café Mediterranean.
Outstanding Mediterranean cuisine in an upscale yet comfortable environment. This was one of the best Mediterranean meals I've ever had. We tried the octopus tonight which is excellent! Wow! I highly recommend Cafe Mediterranean for all dining occasions. Enjoy!!
So glad we chose Cafe Mediterranean for our family dinner! The food was delicious. Every course that we had was spectacular. We even tried octopus. It had a wonderful smoky flavor and a nice texture. The steak kebab was on par if not better than any steak that I have had at Jeff Ruby's. Our waiter had helpful suggestions for appetizers. He was friendly and appropriately attentive. The owner stopped by several times to chat. The experience had a friendly, intimate feel and the food was some of the best that I've had.
We had a very enjoyable meal. The staff went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. The ambience was set for quiet conversation but some of us were having a difficult time seeing the menu. The server / owner raised the lights to enable us to read the menu.
The food is good - Mediterranean but different from other similar restaurants. My friends both commented on both the flavor and quality of the chicken and lamb.
Always a pleasant, relaxing dinner with great personal service. Wonderful flavors, with lots of menu options and very good wines. Very reasonable pricing for the excellent service and food quality. The owner and his staff make you feel 'at home'. Last time we dined there it was for a family birthday with ages 3 to 70 and everyone enjoyed it. Mostly we go as adults for a date night! Truly a neighborhood gem!
We went with 4 other friends for New Year's Eve dinner. We had never been there. Wow, we were missing a great place to eat. The food was very good, the belly dancer happened to be there that night which was a plus. Fun, good food, great service. We will definitely be going back and can't wait until Spring/Summer when the outside seating opens up. We would definitely recommend this.
We chose to dine at Cafe Mediterranean for dinner on New Year's Eve. Their special menu included a choice of appetizer, entree and dessert, with a complementary glass of champagne. And, for a special NYE's treat, live entertainment--a belly dancer! It was a fun and entertaining experience with delicious food and at fair prices.
Our dinner was excellent at Cafe Mediterranean. Our party had the salmon, lamb kabobs, moussaka , humus, and wonderful deserts. The baklava was excellent. Restaurant was quiet, and the pace of ordering, service, desert, and after dinner conversation was very enjoyable. Highly recommended.
