I'm not sure why people are nuts over this place. It's pricy and not super authentic. We ordered baba ganoush and it was strange. It's supposed to be a silky creamy colored dip and theirs was brown and chunky. Very strange flavors. Then I ordered the eggplant stew and I was so disappointed when it arrived. While I was eating...

My boyfriend and I have had two meals at the Mediterranean Cafe, and both times have been great! The food is fantastic, and the atmosphere is welcoming. The complimentary appetizer was a great surprise on our first visit, and eagerly anticipated on our second visit. ....delicious! We will be back!

What a find! Who knew there'd be such great Mediterranean food in WV?! I've been all over the world for work. This is the closest I've found to the wonderful hummus, kabobs, and falafel I've had during my travels. Great atmosphere and service! A tremendous dining experience without the stuffy, pretentious atmosphere. Well done! We'll be back!

We went 2 nights in a row it was so great! Quiet and relaxing, and the food was very delicious. I will never find a better place. I wish we lived closer!

This is a great place in Charles Town to get a consistently good Mediterranean meal. We've had both lunch and dinner there and have enjoyed everything. The complimentary starter is a nice touch. So, don't let the decor fool you. It's nice place to stop if you're in the Charles Town area

Lived in the area for about 5 yrs and just never made the time to stop. MISTAKE! My wife and I are sold on this place and don't the decor influence you, you made a good decision, you will be pleasantly surprised!

We were so surprised to see the variety on the menu and the many different cuisines offered in such a small establishment. The décor is rather bohemian - which we loved - and the folks running the place are the best. We were given a free appetizer just because we mentioned it was our first time there! I've been recommended... More

The Kabobs are a specialty of the house. The atmosphere is warm and inviting. You cannot go wrong with the Mediterranean Café. We favor the chicken Kabobs but the lamb are also delightful. The owner Alfredo, makes every person dining there know that he cares about their experience in his restaurant. A+++

While the options are limited in Charles Town, this restaurant is a solid high quality choice for a variety of mediterranean fare. They provide pita and hummus immediately upon sitting down and the service is thorough and attentive. We ordered the lamb kabob and veggie kabob, as well as baba ganoush. The lamb was perfectly cooked and came with a... More
