Simple tasty Mediterranean food

Went after 8pm got a table straight away, served quickly and waiter friendly and efficient without going OTT. Lots of choice on menu and waiter recommended kebabs after we probed a little as we thought it funny they were called Kebob. Not sure if that's how you say it in LA Food was well priced... read more

We stopped here twice whilst we were staying in Beverly Hills. The food was fantastic and the service was great also. The chicken Kebab was beautiful the meat was so tender and cooked to perfection. The dips were yummy and tasted fresh. A great little find in Beverly Hills, and not over priced I would absolutely recommend Panini Cafe.

Really good chicken kebabs for lunch at reasonable prices. Also had a salmon salad - the salmon was dry,and they gladly replaced the salmon with a fresh piece, which then made the salad great. Would be 5 stars if this hadn't happened. Would definitely look for this place if in Beverly Hills

Great food and service. We sat outside watching the world go by. My son had Chicken Pesto and I had Turkey club which were both excellent. Limited beers to chose from but that's fine. One of the staff struggled with our NZ accent but he was well looked after and translations offered by the other staff. The service was excellent.

i frequent the Panini Cafe as often as possible. I love the prices, the food quality, the service (usually at the counter) It's always consistent The romaine avocado salad and lime dressing is my favorite. I come here for personal meals and sometimes bring a client for a casual atmosphere Great place. And many locations

One of the worst experience during my trip in California. Had lunch in this cool spot in Beverly Hills but was really terrible. The first funny thing was that were served customers arrived after us, probably just because the were locals I guess. Do my money worth less than those of the locals? On top of that we have been...

Staying in Beverly Hills

Neighborhood Profile
Beverly Hills
Beverly Hills began as a modest village years ago and today you can still feel its small town origins, even though it has become a major tourist attraction and business center for the entertainment industry. This town lives up to its reputation as an area full of designer retail stores and residential streets lined with mansions and palm trees. Inside the commercial center of Beverly Hills, along Rodeo Drive, droves of tourists peak into ultra-luxurious boutiques hoping to catch a glimpse of someone famous. Off of Rodeo Drive however is where some of the most affluent Angelenos occupying the streets of Beverly Hills come for leisurely meals, power lunches and beauty treatments.
