Delicious quality fresh food, large portions, price very reasonable . Order at the counter, waiters bring it to you at table. Dinners seem to be more formal, different menu, probably need reservations. I haven’t dined there yet.

Cafe Mangal offers excellent and authentic Mediterranean cuisine. Everything is super tasty and the service is warm and friendly. One member of our party thought the halibut was the best he has had in the Boston area. Bring your own wine and enjoy a relaxed...More
