We used to go to the Mediterranean Cruise while our daughter attended the Art Institute in Minneapolis and loved it from the start. Our first visit to the era since then and we are so glad we could reconnect. Love the food. Love the family that all work there. Haven't found an equal in Texas yet.

Service was only so-so. Lobster bisque was inedible for the 2 who ordered it. Falafel sandwich was very flavorful and filling. Lentil soup above average.

I had the Jerusalem for take out. It was average. I wasn't going to get the baklava, but I am glad I did. That was excellent!

Try the lamb burger, it was excellent, as was the feta cheese. Staff were friendly and it has a good size outdoor seating space available.

This place was a walk from my hotel. It got a good standing on Trip Advisor so I decided to give it a try. Staff was friendly, atmosphere was much more bar, the bar was open to the restaurant and the noise level was higher than I would have liked. I got a Greek salad which was seriously over dressed,...

This place has one of the best hookahs in town. The service here is also great. I really enjoyed their Gyros but I am sure you can find something you would like. They also have belly dancers for some nights. Its always my go to spot in Eagan.
