Mediterranean Restaurant - Carmel
Great restaurant; lots of energy, an enjoyable environment and great food! The lamb shank was delicious!
This place was dirty.... We noticed the floor was flirty like it hadn’t been mopped the night before after dinner service. We we’re seated and despite seeing we had a 4 year old we were not offered a kids menu, which led me to believe they did have one. Only after placing our order and heading to the restroom did my husband see children eating mini pizzas. By this time it was too late for my child to order because our food had just came to the table. Her side of rice was disgusting, my husband’s kabobs were dry, my moussaka was just ok.
The restroom were also dirty. We could only image the condition of the kitchen. There were insects flying around. We should have just left instead of having the experience we had.
This was very disappointing since my husband and I have been wanting to dine at the original restaurant for over a year.
Amazing experience. Consistent quality of food and service year after year! Thank you!!!!
Great staff, quick and delicious food, fun and inviting atmosphere
Great quality food and terrific service. Never disappoints.
Great selections on the menu. Combo appetizer plate is fantastic.
We had booked on open table. When we got there they quickly laid out another table for us. Service was very good. We ordered a Greek platter which was good. I just thought that the portions were a bit less than what I see. Pizza was average. Overall a good experience except bathrooms were really dirty.
Unbelievable!!! This restaurant is the "most alive" restaurant I have ever been to. Food was outstanding and the service was excellent. The management does everything to please its customers.
got a great table next to the window, we got there right before the rush and the service/food was amazing, my favorite place for mediterranean food
Great food, great service. My husband loves the clam chowder served at their sister restaurant so our waiter ran to other restaurant to get it. Called going above and beyond.
Amazing food and wonderful wine selection!! We loved our waiters and it was so nice to meet the owner too!
The staff were amazing. It does get loud in there, but a good time was had.
Everything was amazing. We were running late so i called and they said take your time which put my nind at ease. The intricate colored glass lamps were from somewhere in the mediterranean. The table linens were unique as well. Balouf our waiter was incredible kind, friendly yet professional.
The sauces were delicate and the dolmas were to die for.
very much looking forward to returning. Yes a A+
I had higher expectations. The menu was limited, although the food was good. Nothing special.
lamb had soft texture
Tiene una excelente atención por parte de su dueño . La comida deliciosa
Good food and good ambiance
Faisal has done it again
We were sat right near the front door and every time someone entered or left the restaurant the door would stay open (I think its a swinging door) , it was quite cold and I had to continuously get up to close the door. The staff was great though, very attentive. Food was meh... nothing extraordinary.
I will drive from San Jose most weekends JUST to eat at this charming, warm and amazing restaurant. I have been coming here for the past six months and have eaten here every time I make a trip to Carmel or Pacific Grove. The owner personally walks around and introduces himself to you at the table. I had brought my son (17 years old) and after we had eaten lunch and were leaving, he commented that he had never once been to a place that every person we encountered on our way out had thanked him for coming and wished him a great day. I was very impressed that he made note of that. I will be a patron for life! Thank you for holding onto the culture and having the food express the passion you have for the Mediterranean.
We had a fabulous time! Wonderful meal. Service was outstanding from start to finish.
I felt this place had slipped little since last time we were here. Maybe he's spreading himself a little thin.
Wonderful experience. Food was delicious, ambiance was beautiful, and the wait staff was the best. Even had a little serenade music. Definitely go back.
Great service and food. Generous portion sizes for wine and food.
Great food and great service, we highly recommended this restaurant
a bit expensive, but the food was good and the wine was plentiful.
A wonderful all around experience
The Jerusalem kabob was outstanding and large enough to share. The humus appetizer was excellent too.
We had a wonderful time at Mediterranean restaurant. The food was delicious and came out hot. The service was exceptional and very friendly and warm waiters . The owner came to our table to welcome us. There was also some live middle eastern music which was played by the owner and some of his staff. We finished off our meal with Arabic coffee and baklava. It was a delightful evening .
Fabulous dinner in the heart of Carmel! Delicious food, fantastic service, and beautiful setting! Thank you so much!
Food and service were good. The water served was tap water which was undrinkable.
Great food even better people.
Food okay. Nothing special. Very noisy. Interior design very dated. Salad skimpy. Lasagna tasty. Big open room. No privacy. Not good for intimate conversation or date. Would not rush back.
We were visiting from out of town - the staff is enthusiastic and attentive but it really can’t rescue the mediocre and dated food.
Christmas Eve and partial family reunion. Everything was outstanding!
My dad was visiting for 1 day so we took him to Carmel. It was a very nice place in terms of the vibe, food and service. They have live music, 2 managers stopped by to see if we having a good night and we got a complimentary dessert on the House. Highly recommend!
Good food, good value, great service and fun entertainment.
Such a great place to enjoy an exceptional meal, excellent service by all the staff, and the sounds of the culture. A memorable experience we will definitely enjoy when in Carmel.
Average food, expect more given the competition in Carmel.
Beautiful place and great food! Sister restaurant down street. Delicious aromas with Mediterranean any Greek accents!
