Scottish/Italian Fusion

Small unobtrusive restaurant offering interesting twists of Scottish produce with Italian flavours. Good pasta with chicken and mushrooms, mussels and scallops also great. Worth a visit.

This was a nice change, we sometimes like a change of cuisine on holiday, passed this a few times during the day but eventually at evening meal time. We wanted pizza or pasta or similar and as no pizza it was a lovely couple of pasta dishes, garlic bread to start of course- I had a chicken mushroom dish, the... More

Two of us visited here on a work trip. Fish stew was very good and meaty, pasta dishes also sizeable. Excellent service and nice atmosphere. Down point is the price of the meals, bit more than we wanted to pay. Overall a good restaurant

A Sunday night on Mull and very pleasant meal was had. The restaurant is small but nicely decorated with a casual but friendly atmosphere. Starters were mussels and bruschetta with meatballs. Both were generous portions which could probably be smaller. Main courses were carbonara, fishstew and pasta with chicken and mushroom. All were well cooked and nice. Unfortunately no room... More

To be fair there are only a couple of places to eat in Salem, Isle of Mull here and the Salem Hotel which I did not enjoy. The Mediterranea is an excellent small restaurant with a really nice menu option, helpful happy staff and a great atmosphere went twice while on a weeks holiday and would recommend it highly, it...

Food was of a very good standard. Staff were friendly and efficient if a little over stretched when the place filled up, which it does very quickly. Booking advised. Will definitely return.

Attentive but not overbearing staff. Excellent food from a great Menu - well presented and served. A little gem in the centre of Salen.

We had two wonderful evenings at the Mediterranea restaurant. On both occasions the place was full, so booking is essential! The staff were somewhat stretched as they were looking for staff but, we were well looked after and the food was without fault.

Restaurant was virtually deserted when we entered, so little ambience. Waitress very helpful, friendly and efficient. Menu sounded good, but not cheap.However, the food itself was disappointing. Meatballs not to be recommended. The arrabietta sauce was bland. Another member of our group said his steak was tough. Paid a lot of money for very little.

A busy place where booking is a very good idea. The food is terrific and good value. The staff are friendly if somewhat overworked. A good atmosphere of informality. The local food is prepared well and presented well. We enjoyed the seafood and the pasta.
