As soon as you are seated the waiter will presented you with a complementary plate of pita, hummus, feta cheese, and shirazi salad. It is truly delicious! We have eaten at this restaurant several time. The service and food are has alway been excellent.

Mediterranean Café is a great little gem of a restaurant in the heart of Charles Town. If you're looking for something a bit more adventurous than your usual pub fare which you'd get in Charles Town (not that there is anything wrong with that...but just saying!) this is the BEST place to go to. The restaurant has a wide and... More

While everyone has their own likes and dislikes about food, I'm glad we gave this Cafe a try. We enjoyed everything about our food and experience. Waitress was attentive, but not obtrusive. Owner came by and asked if we had any questions before ordering. We had french onion soup (look for cheese on the bottom) and seafood soup (excellent flavor... More

Not great. Not sure why people fuss about it. Dish was way better. Dry, over cooked meat and rice. And it was expensive. Terrible service. Bland hummus. Skimpy portions.

We were staying nearby to visit historical landmarks. We found this restaurant via TripAdvisor and decided to give it a try. My son and I don't get too adventurous with food, but what we had was delicious. His gyro was about the best we've had and my kabobs were tender & juicy. The pita's tasted like they were just made.... More

This little cafe, conveniently located in the middle of Charlestown, with easy and ample parking, was a delightful experience, as far as the food was concerned. The menu had a distinct Mediterranean theme with a great selection of foods from France, Greece and Turkey. Presentation was excellent, portions generous and prices moderate. We ordered the lamb kabob )succulent and tender)... More
