This is a "OK" place to eat, not great. The sauce overpowered the beef so we had very little idea how the beef was. The pastry was a bit to "puffy", not "layered and flakey". Still, OK for a quick bite.

This was the second time we've eaten here since moving to the Lewes area a little over a year ago. The food is Excellent, the owners and staff are great, the value is great. We will eat there many more times in the future and bring friends with us that are down visiting. We highly recommend trying Semra's if you haven't already.

Get the Choban salad! It was amazingly delicious and I almost went back for lunch the next day for a second helping. The kebob and rice pudding were also delicious.

Loved this restaurant's menu. The homemade Borek (flaky dough stuffed with feta) were light and perfectly cooked. Excellent appetizers. Falafel on the pita bread was so savory and tasty. And the deserts were exquisitely fresh. Would go there once a week if I lived at the beach.

If you like Greek/ Mediterranean cuisine. This place has some of the best. Hidden little Gem on the main drag in Rehoboth. A few doors away from the Boardwalk. Grab a quick Gyro out front and take out. Or relax in the Full Dining room in back. Great appetizers. Authentic Greek entrees. Great dining for Vegetarians. Awesome desserts.

If you want Greek food stick to their Greek Salad and Lamb Gyros sold over the counter on Rehoboth Ave and eat them on a bench outside. That's my plan for next time. The dinner portions are small and overpriced. I had what was a deconstructed gyro at twice the price! They were out of Greek wine (really), and the glass of house white for $9 (+ tip) was quite mediocre at best.

We loved the food - everything was excellent! The dishes seemed to be authentic and the baclava was the best I've ever had. The service was just right. The prices were a bit high but it is, after all, less than one block from the Boardwalk.

Very mediocre. Gyro was horrible. Meat was dry and not as good as a mall kiosk. Lamb kabobs OK. Appetizers average. In general- not worth the visit with so many better options

Sometimes, good things come in different packaging. We ate at Semra’s on a Saturday in the off-season. It is on the main drag of Rehoboth Avenue, very near to pizza parlors, French fry shops, ice cream stands, etc., so it’s easy to miss. But there is some quality Mediterranean food behind the modest storefront. There is casual table service in the back. We had hummus and pita and stuffed grape leaves for appetizers, both quite good. We then had felafel sandwiches, chicken gyro sandwiches and a chicken over salad entree that all satisfied. Baklava and rice pudding put a nice cap on the meal. Service was good, prices reasonable. Really a pleasant surprise. Recommended.

The food was good, not great. We've had lots of Mediterranean food at different places before that was better. Disappointed in the hummus. There was absolutely zero atmosphere. But, for a lunch right off the boardwalk with healthier and good food, I would recommend it.

Not very busy in the dining room when we came so we were slightly concerned, it was not an issue, food was great. Service also a plus we were a large party with two severe food allergies and one vegetarian, no problem at all! Parking is tricky but that's true for all the places near the boardwalk. Not a fancy meal and ambiance could use some improvement but food and s Brice made it work .

Get take out and avoid the dining room. The food is very good but the ambiance and service in the dining room might ruin your evening. Stay away from the wine; it's Overpriced and terrible.

This was my first visit to Semra's. The location is very close to the boardwalk so it's very convenient to have dinner, then stroll to the beach or boardwalk. The front of the restaurant is like take out while the back is more casual. The staff was friendly and accommodating. In fact, I think we ended up with 3 sets of silverware for the two of us. I don't eat this style of food often so hard to compare to others, by my girlfriend has. The food was good, not over the top amazing, but I'd eat there again. I'd recommend if you are in that area and looking for this style of food.
