We visited Mystic Seaport and decided since this place was so highly rated on Trip Advisor, we wanted to check it out. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. As another person mentioned, along with the menu, a small cup of "chips" was brought to the table. There was no dip to enjoy them with, and they were dry, although... More

There is no way they should be the #1 restaurant in Mystic. The food is okay at best. Anyone who thinks this is excellent hasn't had Mediterranean food at a really good restaurant, nor been to Turkey or Greece. Most everything was too dry from appetizers to dessert. There were no nuts, or any noticeable honey, in the Baklava, for... More

My husband and I (and our rat terrier, Jack) stopped for the night in Mystic on our way to Cape Cod the beginning of September. and felt so lucky to find this place. It was Labor Day night, so not busy. We ate outside with our pup, with very attentive and friendly service from Liz. We shared the Fiery Falafel... More

The food was delicious!!! The waitress was great with getting our food quick since we had a 15 month old. Would definitely recommend to anyone who loves Mediterranean food!!! Get there early because it seemed to get busy around 6:30pm on a Saturday.

Vegetarian food can be hard to come by in a town famed for seafood, so this was a gem of a find. More than half of the mezze menu is vegetarian as is a good portion of the mains. Make sure to leave room for dessert - so so good.

There is a reason this place is #1. Excellent food entirely made from scratch. We had the chicken marinated for 24 hours and slow roasted- mouth watering! Service was a little slow because it was a Saturday and the place was packed, but everyone was very friendly. I would absolutely go back if I ever return to Mystic.

My husband and I went tonight for dinner. I am originally from Detroit Mi, which is known for fantastic Lebanese food. The Pita Spot exceeded my expectations! The tabouli, baba, falafel, and entrees were truly phenomenal. Will go again while on our trip. So yummy!!!
