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.

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.

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.

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+

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 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 .

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.

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!
