Nice place but the menu is overwhelming with too many things to think about. The food is not bad but could be better/

After a long day at work and several client visits later, I stumble into a restaurant for a quick bite with my colleague. The January sun was particularly unforgiving on this day, and we asked for some drinks; The waiter did not dilly dally as he saw the exhaustion on our faces. As we relaxed, he offered some suggestions on... More

Had lunch. Terrible service. Had the meals changed. One of the person in the party was served Beef lasagne without beef. The other one served with cold fish. Smokers sat next to our table and the staff would not ask them to put off the cigar and pipe.

I have been to Mediterraneo recently and, in spite of working right across it, I had never been before. The Mediterraneo offers a good menu, with pizza, meat, pasta - the usual typical Italian menu. The service was a bit slow and we had to keep on calling the waiters from our table. I had a homemade ravioli with butter... More

It is some time since, we have eaten at Mediterraneo and I really wonder why as it is still such a good place to spend a Friday evening enjoying well cooked classic Italian dishes. My partner chose a vegetarian pasta with pesto and I had one of my favorites, tagliata beef. Both were excellent and reminded us why we enjoy... More

Tried the lamb kebabs which were great. My wife had the chicken which was also very good. Wednesday evening saxophonist made the evening even better. Still the best restaurant around with amazing wines.
