This restaurant was recommended to us, we tried it for the first time last night and now we can't wait to go back. It's a nice, relaxed atmosphere, friendly people, good value and delicious food. We had the lamb kabob and the chicken Marsala. The complimentary appetizer was very good as well.

The food was great. The restaurant itself is very relaxed. My husband, in his sport coat and I in my dress, were way overdressed! Most people in shorts or jeans. Service was also "relaxed" (sluggish) but cheerful, so who can get annoyed once you have a delicious plateful of hummus and bottle of wine! The setting: we drove passed it... More

My husband and I were given the recommendation of this restaurant by the Innkeepers of the B&B we stayed at. Neither of us are very adventurous when it comes to food, so we were a little leery that we would enjoy this type of cuisine, but we gave it a shot. BOY were we glad we did! The complimentary plate... More

This charming little place has excellent food! The chicken marsala was delicious, and the tiramisu is not to be missed. They brought a starter plate of pita triangles on a plate with housemade hummus and a tomato cucumber salad with balsamic vinegar that was fantastic. The service was friendly, prompt and attentive. It was a Friday and they had a... More

Mediterranean Cafe was our first dining stop upon arriving back in Charles Town for a weekend away. The food and service were just as delicious before and the owner recognized us from our visit a year ago! The one difference was how packed the restaurant was this time around - I'm so glad to see this place has grown and... More

I was in town with a friend - stopped in mid afternoon - simple and understated from the road. Quaint and cozy inside. Service was above average but the food was to die for. We both had Kubideh Kabob and rice. The sides were also excellent. I would have paid twice the price had I known how excellent the meal... More

We were looking for a local restaurant in the Harpers Ferry area and came upon Alfredo's Mediterranean Cafe. The food was fabulous. We both chose kabobs with rice. The lamb was superb and the chicken was tender and very flavorful. The service was excellent and very attentive (but not overbearing) We would have given it five stars but for the... More

I ate lunch at Alfredo's Mediterranean Café on a Monday. I was a little concerned because when I was there a couple of years ago, service was slow. Not this time. The restaurant is nicely decorated in mid eastern style, the food was delicious and the service was just fine. Fresh food in a relaxed atmosphere. It was crowded at... More

Food was delicious, very friendly host. A couple of small hiccups - waiter was slow to return for dessert order after we finished our entree, and then slow to bring the bill at the end. Also, my desert had a sheet of aluminum foil stuck to the bottom. But the food really hit the spot.
