Tried and true for over 20 years

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... 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

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

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 atmosphere, large selection of Mediterranean fare and overall ease of dining.... 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
