I absolutely love this place!!! The entrance to the place is quite beautiful and the ambience is amazing. I like the water fountain in the front and lights up as it gets dark. I live in Princeton but never had dinner here until my date suggested the place for 6pm. We ended up eating outside and it was so romantic.... More

The atmosphere was very nice. Our waiter was excellent and service on all levels was superb- very attentive to every detail. We had the grilled octopus and falafel for apps and they were both delicious. The highlight was the Paella - one of the best I ever had. Looking forward to coming back..

We specifically felt like dining outside, so we lookup up local restaurants that provided the option and found Mediterra on the list. We had 8:30 reservations, arrived at 8:20 and sat at the bar, until we were called for our table at 8:50. While seated we had a wine and mixed drink both enjoyable with a pleasant bartender. We were... More

Service was very good at all levels. Ambience was very nice. Tagine was excellent. Tuna ceviche, mixed hummus and pesto fusilli were good. The only negative was the bass which was a bit plain.

The Mediterranean atmosphere, superb staff, mind blowing food and unique cocktails will keep you coming back! I had the roasted duck which was prepared perfectly. The roasted peach was a nice touch. My girlfriend had the sea bass with seafood paella. Hands down the best meal we've had in a very long time. Don't forget to order the sampler desert!!

Mediterra offers an interesting menu with many uniquely prepared dishes. The snapper special was especially well prepared along with the muscle appetizer. Arriving before the dinner menu begins, provides much lower prices and many extra options. The brunch menu offers tasty buttermilk pancakes. The lamb burger on the lunch menu is a bit over-powering. The service was extremely attentive. Desserts... More

Business dinner for 4 people (mostly hungry!). The mezze sampler was very tasty and provided with pieces of pitta and bread. I had a gazpacho that was like in Spain: ice cold and fantastic flavor of veggies and herbs. My choice for main course was mixed grill and here I am a little ..."mixed", the meat was good but the...

We ate here as a large group (about 20 people) and it was very good. The service was great and the food was good. I ordered a pasta dish that was decent but many people in our party ordered the paella and said it was great. The calamari was not great, but they brought a lot of bread which was... More

We had lunch again this week at Mediterra. I always look forward to the experience and this week was no disappointment. The creativity of the menu, the exceptional quality of the ingredients, the artful and beautiful presentation are all attributes not to be found very often. Take a peak through the round windows in the kitchen doors and be prepared... More
