“Give yourself a reward for shopping or daytime errands and have lunch at Mediterraneo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 10, 2012

There are plenty of reviews of dinner at Mediterraneo and I agree. I've had the tuna sashimi, the eggplant parmesan, the manicotti, the pasta with salmon, we even stop for a glass of wine and a caprese salad.

Recently we have been having lunch at Mediterraneo, because of the wonderful chapatas sandwiches. These are good sized sandwiches served on a wonderful floury rectangular artesanal roll. My favorite is a creamy eggplant parmesan filling, My husband loves the arrachera with mushrooms, green peppers and onions. I’ve also enjoyed the salmon sandwich several times. The sandwich comes on a plate with a small side salad, which comes complete with a flourish of pepper. If that is not enough my husband’s Negra Modelo dark beer and my lemonades are two for one. As described above, with a good tip you are looking at around $240.00 pesos for two. All served professionally and efficiently and even entertainingly if the owner Julian is available.

The new location is wonderful: graceful arches open along in the front for a cafe style lunch with expansive garden seating in the back, best thought of as available during the dry season Nov - June. Mediterraneo is now located on Calle Cinco De Mayo best known for the long artisans market and the church, which is just next door to Mediterraneo.

“A must in Zihuatanejo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2012

Loved the food; excellent variety and quality. Friendly atmosphere and good service. Best of all, it was reasonably priced. Ask for the specials. Thank you to our host Julian for a lovely gourmet evening. We shall be back and tell our friends about our new favorite place in town.

I can't brag about the food nor the price. However, our waiter - Tomas was exceptionally courteous.
