Ate here this evening with a party of 12, after a long, tiring day's work. Excellent first impression walking in, with the huge soaring ceilings, and wood trim, with a belly dancer fresco, and the huge crystal "genie bottle" gave a lovely whimsical touch. Our group had a range of drinks, including craft beer, good wine, and a superb "dirty"... More

Dined here with friends last Saturday night. I love middle eastern food, the humus, taboli, and shawrima (lamb) are always so good here. I'd say out of all the middle-eastern places in the Minneapolis area, this is the best. The very tastefully decorated high-ceiling room, full bar, and solid menu make it so. However, one of the best things about... More

This restaurant is excellent. I was glad we had a reservation! Please! Call ahead the place fills up fast. Their food is great, even my kids like the pita bread and kids pizzas. I enjoy watching the belly dancer, as do my kids. We love this restaurant. We have had a small family dinner there. I've also had a business... More

We decided to try Mediterranean Cruise because we've not been here since the location changed so off we go to celebrate my birthday! Super excited! We arrive and the place is almost empty. We wait for a bit and are told we are going to be seated. A gal says to follow us so we do. She drops the menus... More

I have been here several times and enjoyed both the buffet and entrees of the menu. The food is tasty. Gyros stir fry over saffron rice? I will dream of this until I return.

This is a great place to try out different foods from different cultures! We chose the four course Mediterranean for two for $45, and it allowed us to explore different foods by each ordering something different for a soup/salad, appetizer, main meal, and dessert. I can't honestly critique the food as I have not had Mediterranean that much so am... More

I love Middle Eastern cuisine and this place has some of the best. The lunch buffet is great as it gives you the opportunity to try many different things. Food has always been fresh and plentiful. Service is prompt and courteous. Can't wait to go back!

My husband and I enjoy Middle Eastern cuisine served up at the Mediterranean Cruise Café. They have a good selection of dishes and combinations to choose from and the food is delicious! The staff is always friendly and willing to explain any unfamiliar dishes. The only reason I did not give the restaurant a rating of 5 is that the... More

Mediterranean Cruise Cafe is my top favorite restaurants in the Twin Cities. My family, and friends just loved every dish. The dishes were very scrumptious while the portions very excellent. The wine was a bit expensive. Planning on another visit to dine, but the actual purpose will be to thank the staff.

My husband and I have had the lunch buffet at this restaurant many times and enjoyed it. We returned today but something seemed a bit off. The first thing I noticed while walking to our table was the floor was sticky...not a good sign. We arrived a little after 1:00 PM and decided once again on the lunch buffet. Several... More
