The food here was full of flavor. I had the Medaterra platter which had a sampling of four different foods and each was delicious and different from each other. Environment was OK but nothing exciting. Service was good. I've had better but they took care of us. I would definitely return for the food.

as well as delicious lamb (any style) in the dinner and lunch menus. Dinner is a better time to go, they have several appetizer platters and it turns out to be really cheap for a lot of food.

The appetizers were great authentic mediterranean food. Waitress had a problem with splitting our bill which should not have been. Main course was pretty good and the drink specials were great for that part of town. If your looking for a cheap quick place to eat I would recommend.

This Egyptian inspired Mediterranean restaurant has an extensive menu and a fun outdoor seating area near the Woodley Park Metro stop. Typical of restaurants in the area, there are lots of specials and fun drink machines. We ate here last year and needed to come back!

Atmosphere was fine,but the tables had banquet chairs, if that sort of thing bothers you. The waitress was timid to say the least, but the service was OK. The water in the sink of the ladies room got boiling scalding hot within a couple seconds. Watch out. The prices were good. All of this matters less to me than the... More

Medaterra was in a good spot, but the food wasn't really up to par. I ordered 2 different dishes and was then told they were out. Food is over priced for what you get.

Didn't eat there so can't rate the food. We stayed at the Omni Shoreham hotel that's 2 blocks away and went there for drinks. They have these $3 frozen margaritas and $3 sangria that is great and at that price, can't be beat. The waitresses are very nice. The inside looks tacky and has an awful and strange smell (like...

After tiring of the restaurants in our hotel, we decided to branch off and try this restaurant since we had already done sushi and Italian during the week. I love Greek food but have not eaten at a mediterranean restaurant before. We had two appetizers- of marinated olives and baba ganoush, and I had the veggie risotto. Everything was delicious...
