If you like Mediterranean, you'll like La Marsa

We have dined at La Marsa a few times in the past couple months. We enjoy Mediterranean cuisine and we have found La Marsa's food to be consistently excellent. The place is large so if you're having trouble finding an open table in Ann Arbor, you're likely to find availability here. The service has... read more

We had dinner at the restaurant on 18th Oct 2014. The choice was of vegetarian and Chicken dishes. The food was of very poor quality and the service was also average.

stopped in for lunch while showing family around Ann Arbor. The food was very good, we split a shawarma plate and some hummus between two and it was more than enough. Lovely atmosphere and we were pleased with what we got. The only down side is it is considerably ore expensive than one might have expected, and service was a... More

Ended up at La Marsa in a whirlwind.The grilled quails were savor-less, just as the rice side or the salad. A one time stop here.

Don't get me wrong, the food was good. In fact, I'm eating the leftovers for lunch as I'm writing this. I just don't see the value in paying $20 for a plate of cheap chicken, mashed up chick peas and rice with a few almonds sprinkled on it. Atmosphere was nice, location is great. I just don't see the value.... More

Located right in the heart of the U of M's "Campus Town," this place appears quite popular with students. We ate dinner here for thefirst time with my brother and his wife - none of us particularly familiar with Mediterranean food. Our waiter was very helpful in understanding the menu and making appropriate selections. I selected Koshary, billed as an... More

My wife and I were trying to decide where to eat and went into La Marsa to look at the menu. We were not sure we wanted Mediterranean food and began to leave, but a customer there told us we were making a big mistake and commented how wonderful the food was. So, we stayed. Are we glad we did!... More

The food is good but you can get the same thing for less at several other places in town. Skip this one.

Thoroughly enjoyed the tasty kebabs, super-fresh bread, and garlic sauce. The Detroit area is such a global hotspot for Middle Eastern cuisine. This place can't compete with the very best of its peers, and it doesn't pretend to. What it really has going is LOCATION plus great-enough food that would be pulling 5 stars in most any other town.
