Excellent Mediterranean food fusion menu with healthy portion servings and great side sauces. Dine either indoors or out on the patio.

This place has excellent food, efficient and friendly service. I had the large Greek salad with a chicken kebab.The salad was fresh and delicious, and the chicken was succulent and tender. Looking forward to a return trip here.

We like this place and sat in traffic for over 45 minutes to make the trip 1 1/2 hours to get there. Got to remember Santa Cruz does not have lots of good choices. Traffic on Hwy southbound 1 is terrible in the late afternoon. The Falafel place on Mission in Santa Cruz has better falafel but this place has... More

Delicious food, many choices to please our whole extended family. We especially like their healthy salads and not-so healthy desserts ;)

If you are looking for good middle eastern food, Zameens is the place. It's a fusion of many different styles (Persian, Israeli, Lebanon, etc). I recommend the mezze sampler platter, but have it as a shared meal.

Zameen serves very tasty Mediterranean food in a cozy atmosphere. The soups, salads and kebabs are light and healthy variations on traditional Lebanese, Turkish and Greek dishes. Excellent service in a pleasant location.

This casual dining spot is one of my favorites for a quick dinner or lunch. The meat gyro is absolutely delicious. Moroccan madness soup is yummy. Shrimp kebabs are luscious. The salads are crisp, fresh and flavorful. The service is friendly and the prices are reasonable. We also use their take-out service.

We eat here all of the time. Sometimes once or twice a week. The food is always great and the service is always fast and with a smile. I almost always get the same thing: Grilled Chicken Kebab on a Greek Salad. They have lovely sauces and condiments (spicy and sweet) and the bread is to die for.

Nice seating area outside all food brought to your table. Good selection of wraps (gyro, chicken, shrimp, beef), pizza, hummus, dinner plates, etc. Open brick grill. They give you a lot of food and most of the time I take half home. They do have music some times for dinner service. Can be crowded at times especially dinner.

Mediterranean (eastern & North Africa)Nice selection of Grilled meat in wraps or as meals. Moroccan soup was very good. Grill is open for all to see. Lunch service is seat yourself and order at the counter, but bought to your table. Nice sitting out in the sun on the patio, but of course on this coast this means Spring or... More
