We had great service. We were there for an anniversary dinner. Shrimp skewers were delicious. The lamb shank was chewy and green beans tough. The owner listened to our complaint and might have made an adjustment if we hadn’t paid already.

We had the lamb kabobs with basmati rice and Greek salad which is always amazing. They bring complimentary homemade humus and pita to your table which is a nice touch and very tasty. The owner is very friendly and accommodating. Two of the employees sang and serenaded the tables which was fun and nice surprise. Always visit this restaurant when visiting Carmel.

Excellent Greek and Mediterranean food. Nice ambience yet casual atmosphere. Service was extraordinarily friendly. Prices decent for Carmel. Good for a date but we also saw families with young kids enjoying themselves.

Food was excellent , as usual. The staff performed a song shortly after we arrived. It was so loud it made conversation impossible. I actually covered my ears because it was painful. Thankfully it was only one song. If they had continued we would have left and dined elsewhere.

This was our first time here, and we LOVED it! The food was incredible, Mediterranean food is my favorite, and this is the best I’ve had in a very long time! The hummus starter was creamy and delicious, great balance of garlic and lemon. I had the sand dabs, and they were perfectly done. My husband had the chicken kebabs, and he said they were moist and delicious as well. They gave us a free piece of baklava at the end, and it was fabulous! I have a new favorite restaurant in Carmel!

This may have been one of our best dining experiences. We were celebrating my wife’s birthday. They serenaded her in fact the entire restaurant started dancing. It was a magical evening. Thank you for making it such a wonderful experience.

Good atmosphere but a bit disappointed with the food. It was not bad, but I was expecting better. Overall would recommend this restaurant for a dinner or lunch in Carmel.

Our third or fourth time at this restaurant. Every time the service has been excellent. Friendly, accommodating, rapid, attentive. I had lamb shish kebab and it was done medium (as requested). Rice, lamb...all was excellent.
Order a wine I was not familiar with from the list. Turned out it was not to my taste. The restaurant took it back graciously and didn't charge. That's as it should be but I was delighted by how graciously they accepted my error. Really very nice. The musical interlude at about 9:00 is always fun.

We enjoyed a great dinner at Mediterranean Restaurant in Carmel last week. My wife, son and I were in Carmel for Thanksgiving week and wanted a place where we had many options including vegetarian. Mediterranean was the right choice. Food was great tasting and plenty of choices. We ate well and enjoyed the live music as birthdays were being celebrated. Service was very good and staff warm and friendly. We'd go back when in Carmel.

Good food and service. Parent restaurant, Demetra, is just a few doors down. Both restaurants have people waiting outside for dinner. Recommend reservations. I can't go to a Mediterranean/Greek restaurant without having the flaming Saganaki. "Opa!"
I've been to restaurants that use a softer cheese. Mediterranean uses feta cheese, which is fine, but doesn't have the smooth texture to smear on pita bread. My husband had the combination plate which was very good. I had the vegetarian plate--also very good. Generous pours of wine. They gave a nice complimentary dessert of baklava. Overall a nice dining experience.

Excellent Mediterranean food choices. Very tasty and nice sized portions for the appetizer (Mezze Platter for two) and the entrée (the Gyro plate was great). The place gets packed, so reservations are a must. Beware - the wine list on their website is not at all accurate.

We eat here often as the food and service are consistently some of the best in Carmel. Small selection of wines by the glass, but they have what we wanted and we enjoyed them. House-made humus very creamy, not real garlicky. Wife had the Dametra pasta - chicken was very tender and the pasta al dente - great flavor, not real creamy. I had the lamb shank - smaller than most I have had, but was plenty of food - very tasty wine reduction sauce. Service is excellent - we probably had every server visit our table in some capacity, as well as the two owners - great attention to detail. Always a good time - always a good meal!!
