Poor Service at what is rated # 1 for Mystic

We were hoping to find on our visit last night that the service had improved. Unfortunately that was not the case. This is now our 3rd visit to what is a highly rated place by TripAdvisor. This may have been our last time. For an eatery that is rated #1 in Mystic, we expect much more. It is a... read more

This place was excellent. I was in town for work and had no interest in fast food or the hotel restaurant so I took a spin down the road form my hotel and ended up here. The place is tiny but quaint. The staff was excellent. My waitress recommended a most delicious bottle of wine and the owner (?) was... More

Who would have thought we would find an authentic, awesome Middle eastern place in Mystic CT? Here on a mini vacation with my family, we found this place and were SO happy. Owner is very friendly and gives background on all dishes in person. Portions were good, food was fresh and DELICIOUS, and wine recommendations were on point. Our ages... More

This is a family run operation and each of the three brothers and sisters bring fine food to the table. They are friendly and would be welcome at my table anytime.warm... More

I have been going to The Pita Spot for quite a few years and I am always consistently impressed with the quality of the food and the staff. I very much enjoy the Lala chicken and the pepper soup as well as all the salads.

Wanted a real meal after a long day of rainy, holiday traffic (VA to Cape Cod). Found Pita Stop thru trip advisor. 2 easy miles off 95 @ Mystic. Food was great - lala chicken, hummus, pomegranate juice & more. The food was so good that we took our leftovers even though we were traveling. Our son is a finicky... More

My wife and I stopped in during the week-end for a late lunch. We had read reviews here on Tripadvisor and were anxious to see what we had been missing. We found the restaurant had been decorated in a Lebanese style and we were quickly seated by a very attractive waitress who we found to be very knowledgeable about the... More

We had an excellent meal and very well prepared. We have been to the Med a few times and the food at the Pita Spot is comparable to some of the best we had in the med.

While The Pita Spot may be a small sized restaurant it is "big" with respect to its menu selections and quality of their authentic Mediterranean foods. My husband and I were very pleased with the service as well. Not only did our waitress give a thorough description of many of their food selections, she was also quite attentive to all... More
