“Still got it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2014

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 become so successful. They are currently #1 on TripAdvisor and it is deserved! We are thrilled for Alfredo and this awesome gem of a restaurant.

“Simply fabulous”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2014

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 would be. What a gem. I don't think I will ever dine at the casino again knowing that The Med Café is right around the corner.

“Food was great, lose the singer”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2014

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 musician they had there. A young man playing a guitar and singing 60's and country songs. It was too loud and the wrong type of music for the environment. I would have loved to hear some Mediterranean music of some sort, but Johnny Cash and Paul McCartney were totally out of place.

“Excellent and friendly”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 9, 2014

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 lunch on Monday! That says it all! Prices very reasonable. Family owned and operated. Highly recommended.

“Delicious food, slow service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 7, 2014 via mobile

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.
