We visited this restaurant quite often and went for dinner again last Sunday. The squid ink tagliatelle was excellent. It was quite spicy but great combination of the explicitly tasting tagliatelle, the sweet red pepper and seafood. Try it if you like spicy seafood dish. We had a great dinner again here but there was a little disappointment. The fountain... More

Stopped in here around happy hour during a recent business trip to Princeton. I have eaten lunch here before and it was quite tasty. I sat at the bar and was excited to see that from 4:30 - 6:30 they have $2 Tapas specials. Normally these run $5-7 so the discount is terrific. I figured that the discount would mean... More

Not only was the meal wonderful, as expected, the service was impeccable! Every part of the dinner from the appetizer to the dessert was terrific and the wine pairings were perfect!

Have eaten at least 10 times at Mediterra, usually with a group organized by the university which often uses this restaurant when university catering is fully booked. The food is quite good -- Italian is the specialty but one can also get a decent salad, and their NY sirloin is one of the best I have had anywhere. Good wine... More

I cannot say great things about this restaurant, also no real negative things. It's not a bad restaurant, the food is good but not great, the portions are not that big and the price is rather high. I prefer to go to some place else but that's my personal opinion offcourse.

My last minute reservation was well managed. Service is quite responsive and the menu represents a medium variety of mediterranean food. Oysters were fresh & excellent. Some Italian specialities are missing, e.g. Carpaccio, Osso Buco, Prociutto e Melone, Vitello Tonato.

Mediterra located in the center of downtown of Princeton, it's a bit fancy with a beautiful view on the Palmer Square, especially in the spring-summer time, when the outside seating is available. The food is prepared from the local organic product and it's always fresh and tasty. I like to dine in Mediterra with the friends , pleasant atmosphere, good... More

Celebrated my husbands Birthday at Mediterra, the food and service were good but not exceptional. We both felt it was a little over priced.

Mediterra is at the heart of picturesque Palmer Square on the storied campus of Princeton University. I have dined here several times and each visit has been memorable for the charm of the restaurant and its setting, the exceptional cuisine, the fine wine list, and gracious service. My recent visit followed a long day of meetings. We started with the... More

Menu selections are eclectic, so check the menu before you go, but all the food is fresh and well-prepared. The ambience inside is cozy and nice.
