Good Mediterranean Food

Who would expect good Mediterranean food in Maumee, Ohio ( just outside of Toledo).? But that's what we found. Staying the night on our way back home we found this small, quiet restaurant less than a mile from our motel. Service was excellent, very friendly and accommodating. We had hummus and... read more

A fabulous little place--excellent Mediteranean fare--every bit as good as the other more famous bigger Med/Restaurants around here....and in my opinion. better. Large portions for take home....and rarely crowded....So once you discover it---don't tell a soul....or we'll end up waiting in line...!

Whenever I know I'll be spending more than just a few days in one location, I try to find a local restaurant that I can call "home." As anyone who spends a great amount of time "on the road" for business will tell you, the the anonymity of daily life away from one's family and friends can be extremely dispiriting.... More

We have eaten a lot of Middle Eastern food, but this was some of the best ever. Staff was extremely friendly and hospitable. We had a great time, and loved our meals!

Well I had high hopes for this after visiting Zingo's but they were quickly squashed as there is really no comparison between the two as far as mediterranean cuisine is concerned. The greek salad was lackluster; I've had far better at the Meijer Deli. The gyro was HUGE....large portions here and that was only a half! I wonder what the... More

Dinner with friends at a restaurant we had never been before. Good atmosphere, very friendly waitresses. My favorites were the fried kibbie and the kafta. All the sauces (garlic!!) were awesome and so was the hummus. Yummie. My chicken and beef on the kabob were a little overcooked and dry. Baklava was amazing. Overall, very good food and a nice...

Love this restaurant! We eat here whenever we are in Maumee and have never been disappointed. The Shish Kabobs are excellent whether it is the chicken, beef or kafta. The meat is very tasty and so tender you only need a butter knife to cut it! Plenty of food to fill you up with a Greek, fatoush or regular salad... More

The last review should be taken with a grain of salt. This place has The best mediterranean around, especially for the price. Try the value tray, you won't regret it.

My husband and I were in Maumee for the day, and passed this restaurant. We decided that Mediterranean food sounded just right. This restaurant is small, but with a nice atmosphere. We shared a sample platter which featured hummus, a salad, gyros meat, grape leaves, some sort of beef sausage, falafal and rice. The waitress was very efficient - attentive... More
