Mediterranean Meal

La Mediterranee is an old establishment among locals of Berkeley with good food that is reasonably priced. Without a reservation, we were seated immediately (albeit in the back next to the kitchen) and the staff was friendly but seemed overwhelmed. What I liked about this place was the informal... read more

Went after a Berkeley graduation with a party of 20. We were so crowded in, I could not use a fork and knife, my elbows would have hit the people on either side of me. Fortunately, my daughter was on my right. So, the use of my fork was okay. The food was dry and tasteless. They put a lot... More

Chicken in salad dry and tasteless. Vegetarian not sure how that was. Chicken kebab dry Chicken legs cooked in sauce good. Prices not cheap. Never go there again

We have been going to this restaurant for years. Always excellent. Last night, Jonah, our server, was good but the food was not. I ordered a Mythos beer - they didn't have any. This is Friday night and a Greek restaurant without Greek beer? Honestly, we should've left. Now to the food. We usually get some pita when we sit... More

nice to find somewhere informal with simple good tasty food Upon arrival you simply grab a menu and find a table and staff leave yoi to your own devices until you need them Portions are quite large but wasn't very hungry due to jet lag Recommended

We stooped here for lunch. My brother-in-law liked the Filet shishkabob. I liked the cheese filled phyllo, but not the one with chicken filling had raisins and cinnamon--tasted weird. The lemon soup was good

Stopped by after meandering on College Ave. in Berkeley. Food smelled amazing, lemon chicken soup sounded perfect on a rainy afternoon and the menu/specials were mouthwatering! We ordered two lunch specials of lamb kabobs and the chicken sampler plate. The hummus was spectacular, the Turkish coffee was wonderful and the lamb was savory. Server was super kind and helpful and... More

The food was excellent. The server was lacking. My group thought they were more into texting their friends than offering service. They have covered outdoor dining which is nice. I would go back and hope I get another group servers.
