Yummy Mediterranean buffet on Monday nights!

Once an easy five, this place has lost it's luster for me; it is a family owned restaurant that has stood the test of time and survived a change of location. I am half Lebanese and a tough customer to please when it comes to Mediterranean and Lebanese cuisine but their food rarely disappoints. Their falafel is excellent. So is... More

horrible if you have kids with you, avoid weekends, overcharged, you pay for the decor not for the quality of food, taste like its out of a can, but to each his own, will try again and update the post.

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.
