Delicious food, so-so ambiance

If you want some delicious Mediterraian food, this place has it. Our group of three got lamb kebabs, mushroom quiche, and a vegetarian plate. All the entrees were sufficiently large, and came with a choice of potato salad, green salad, or small bowl of soup. Everyone really liked their choice... read more

We were visiting San Francisco and took a side trip to Oakland to visit a friend. Our friend drove us around town and took us to this restaurant at Berkeley for lunch. It is located in an area that is walkable and streets lined with shops and restaurants near UC Berkeley. We took a table outside and ordered a hummus... More

One of our favorite “go-to” places. Certain dishes we’ve never seen anywhere else. You know the times when you are stressed out, or are expecting to get stressed out? Or maybe you’re just tired and need a lift. We have a few restaurants we go to when we’re like that. La Mediterranee is one of our favorites. Has been for... More

This restaurant is in my neighborhood and we visit a lot. If you like middle eastern style food, this is your place. My favorite thing to order is the Middle Eastern plate, with a selection of different delicacies - the hummus is very good and my kids love the flaky fillo dough rolls. They also do party trays there, something... More

Its the kind of place that locals go to over and over and over. It is consistently delicious, fresh and never fussy. The flavors are savory. The portions are generous and the food is authentic. On occasion the service is not up to speed, which is my only complaint. Usually though, you can plan to dine and make it to... 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
