Sunday brunch buffet

Excellent food. My wife and I weren't sure what to expect as this was our first time there, but the selection was very good, and the food was great. Mostly Mediterranean staples like pita, gyro, tabouli and hummus. The gyro stir fry was very good too. We'd definitely go again.

We love the food and atmosphere at Mediterrain Cafe! They have a huge buffet on Sunday which sounds great, but we have a favorite menu item that we usually order. It is called Gyros and Pasta-Hot or Mild.

Mediterranean Cruise Cafe is located in burnsville so it's a pretty far drive if you're coming from downtown Minneapolis/St. Paul. They have free parking in front of their establishment so no need to worry about that. They serve mainly Mediterranean food ( of course ) which isn't bad at all. I do find it fairly pricy for their meals. The... More

The food is delicious, the hummus the best I've had. The patio is a great place to have hookah after dinner.

Went last night to a business meeting and had a superb buffet. Choices started with a Greek salad, regular salad, lamb, chicken kabob, shrimp on a stick, vegetables, fruit and desert of balaclava. A very enjoyable time. Best lamb that I have had in years. Large bar with a wide range of selections. Outside dining also available.Prompt service.

I have been to the Mediterranean Cruise Cafe several times and have always enjoyed myself- this time it was not as good. I ordered the flat bread, which wasn't that good, it also came out later than everyone else's food, the waiter appeared to forget about it and eventually I asked another server to check on it. Then I couldn't... More

Healthy and delicious middle eastern delicacies at reasonable prices found at Burnsville's grand and spacious downtown restaurant. Fabulous midday buffets are no secret -- they will keep you coming back again and again.

My wife and I like to try all the restaurants around our neighborhood. This past weekend it was the Mediterranean Cafe. I would say it is a bit pricey. We had two platter dishes and the bill came out to $40. We didn't know how much food we would be getting, but needless to say it wasn't $40 worth. I... More

We love the fresh and healthy food served at the Cruise. Today we enjoyed the wonderful buffet. There was a greek salad and a Caesar salad, fresh and attractive. Entrees included chicken kabobs, gyro meat, chicken stew, fish, grilled vegetables (to die for), pizza, bruschetta, rice, pita bread and hummus, and various Mediiteranean garnishes and sauces. Everything was prepared beautifully... More

Out of 5 stars this place deserves only half. I have been here twice, once with my husband and once as a family. Both times I was disappointed. On Valentine's Day we went and I ordered the lamb and asked for it to be well done because I was pregnant and didn't want to risk eating red meat. They had... More
