“Killer views with average food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2012 via mobile

This place is right on the beach with amazing views. We went with some friends of ours and kids from both families. It was great because kids can just step down and play on the beach while the parents enjoy a drink. You can easily keep an eye on them from your table granted our kids are old enough to do so. We ordered prawn cocktail as starter. Didn't realize that it's prepared differently than the American shrimp cocktail. It's a more mayo-y sauce served over salad. It was still good but different than the American cocktail sauce. Kids all had pizza which was fine. I had seafood pasta in foil pouch. It was too salty! The food was overall average but the view and ambience was fantastic. We must have stayed there like 4 hours with the kids happily entertained and and the adults clearing many glasses of wine. :)

“Beautiful Setting”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2012 via mobile

The view and the layout is really very interesting. But then the whole evening should be fab too, esp if u hv driven out for like an hr or more.
Post the terrible traffic, and the bad road what follows; - worst service, chewy steak and bad seafood considering they are by the ocean is unacceptable. service lol forget it!!!
Margerita pizza is the only thing to go for if u are there coz of the once a month music night.
The owner should change the whole kitchen and restaurant management and do justice to the whole setup.

“Good food, music and dancing, excellent night out”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2012

Every third Saturday of the month Mediterraneo hold a dinner and nightclub night which I would highly recommend. The food was very good with no complaints from any of the 4 of us, superb steaks with mozarella and ham. Music went on till at least 4 am and the venue right on the beach was well attended without being too crowded. Very popular with the well heeled locals and most of the western residents and tourists seemed to be there.
Will be making this a regular event while I am here.

“One of the better places”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Mediterraneo is a little hard to find but worth the search.
Food is good and the beach is nice (although not too clean)...
Prices are OK and it is nice for a drink, a lunch or a big dinner.
Spend some pleasant hours there.
But don't ask for a normal coffee... That seems to be impossible

“Fantastic Location, BuT Poor Poor Service!!”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 20, 2012

Well, we live like ten minutes from this place...but always go here for Sunday morning brunch.. sea facing laid back setting...therapeutic breeze and ohhh wow the view of the ocean is something else...walks on the beach are seriously addictive and something we do every other Sunday...cannot get away from this, but sadly the waiting service lives ALOT to be desired...we order a coffee...a water...a juice.... all these orders follow one after the other because the previous ones have not been honored!!! upon asking...(every weekend...answer is..'we are short staffed...') HELLO OOO?? we actually ordered sodas eventually which took another good 12 minutes... we figured its the breeze that takes us there so lets leave it that way...we have had food here before, severally actually...took a year to come but food is delicious and tasty...just takes a long long time to get to your table...otherwise a beautiful setting and location...despite the disappointments of poor service, we always go back as the view and breeze eradicate all the frustration you get in terms of service...OWNERS please DO SOMETHING about this??
