We had the lunch buffet - there were 8 of us celebrating my daughters birthday. The buffet was plentiful and delicious. Everything from greek salad to soup and more. Loved the gyros and spicy chicken wings. I was greeted by an older gentleman who asked if the birthday present I was carrying was for him! He came to the table... More

I've dined here many times with friends and family alike, for the buffet, and for meals from the menu. There's never been a disappointing meal of any kind. This is a family-friendly place with many meal options for children. This is also a good choice for large groups. It's completely handicapped accessible. The staff are all welcoming and friendly, and... More

Along with great food, it really can be an authentic Greek experience. When there are a lot of people and dancers and fun noise, all I can say is it's a blast. Lunches are quieter, and although it's a tad more expensive than a typical lunch, it is not hard to fill up on delicious food (and pretty healthy, too).

I have lived in Burnsville 5 weeks and have been here twice. I am sure that will continue to be my pattern. The first visit was a pre-show dinner with friends. The cruise special plate was perfect. The second visit was Saturday night. The lamb was excellent. The floor show is very entertaining. However the 9 piece Samba band with... More

The food is to die for. They have a couple's special for a reasonable price and you get lots of food. Great times on Saturdays with salsa dancing.

I had ordered take-out from the old location many times and loved the food. This was my first visit to the new restaurant. My friend and I were seeing an evening show at the Ames Center so figured it was a good time to try the new place. Perfect and convenient! Made a reservation, easy free parking in empty ramp,...

The food is OK - but hang on tight when you get the bill. We got carryout for 4 people and when we went to pay I was shocked by the price - be careful what you order. On the plus side quantities are very generous.

Yes, they have belly dancers (Friday's and weekends). Yes, they rock with after hours dancing on the weekends. Yes, you can stuff yourself with gyros and baklava, but the best reason to come to Mediterranean Cruise is for their comprehensive buffet. From homemade soups (at lunch), a plethora of salads - from Greek to tabouli and several in between, to... More
