“Disappointed”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 12, 2014

Considering the great reviews on Trip Advisor, I found Mediterraneo to be the most disappointing restaurant we visited on a recent stay in Nuevo Vallarta. The Lebanese food is somewhat similar to food in many Greek restaurants, but I have enjoyed most of those places much more. We started with hummus, which was quite good. My wife and I then had one of the combination platters for two in order to sample several different items. Again, most things were good, but not outstanding. Our son had the shrimp and squid from the Italian side of the menu. It was good, but somewhat unexciting. The staff were wonderful and very friendly. Mediterraneo is quite different from any other restaurant that we have visited in the Puerto Vallarta area, but it certainly does not rate as one of our favorites. I would not tell anyone not to go there, but I doubt if we would return on future visits to the area.

“Fantastic Mediterranean Treat In Nuevo Vallarta...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

Outstanding experience...Atmosphere and cuisine was first rate! With a group of nine, we likely sampled everything on the menu...every item was delicious, and prepared to perfection! Owner and Chef, Mario and his staff were stellar! Not only did he prepare a wonderful meal for all of us, but he was also gracious, extremely personable, fun, and clearly takes great pride in taking care of his guests! During our vacation, this meal and experience was a genuine treat, worthy of our evening, Mediterraneo is officially on our list of favorite restaurants in PV! See you next trip Mario!

“Wonderful food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

Delicious food, superior service and highly talented chef Mario. We were a large group, sampled a large part of the menu and all loved our meals. The lamb, beef, hummus, falafel, baklava, salads and the bread were all delicious.

“Spectacular, Authentic Lebanese Meal”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

I can't begin to give enough praise for this Lebanese Restaurant in Nuevo Vallarta, Mexico. The service was superior, friendly and gracious. The food was authentic and very tasty. The Chef was born in Lebanon and certainly is very capable and the food was delicious. Tabbouleh was good, along with the lamb that was served with lemon diced potatoes. We had Baba ghannouj with pita as an appetizer.
Lebanese people are VERY hospitable. This is the treatment you received when visiting the restaurant. The waiters were attentive and a photo was taken with the Chef.
It was my birthday celebration and they took EXTRA effort and ordered a cake for our family to share. I had a memorable birthday this year, thanks to Mediterraneo.
