Petra Cafe Greek & Mediterranean


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

May 18, 2018 we relocated from a shopping center to a stand along building on Hwy 49 directly across from Forrest General Hospital. The new building provides more seating and parking. Our menu is centered around recipes from Jordanian and Greek relatives. Everything is made is fresh with organic ingredients.

I have been to all the Mediterranean places in the area and this is the only authentic one. Everything here is good and if you really want a treat, ask for the Petra Mezza which is like a Mediterranean sampler platter for two!

We love Petra! The gyro plate is a family favorite. Pro tip - sub tabbouleh for the salad that comes with the gyro plate. You will not regret a visit to this gem!

When you go in it transports you and allows you to take a break from reality, like a mini vacation. The staff was friendly, excellent atmosphere, and outstanding food. The falafel and hummus had wonderful flavor.

My first visit to the new location on Hwy 49. The restaurant is very clean! Low key...not loud and obnoxious. Great spot to take business partners/customers. Actually, great spot to take anyone. Food was delicious! Fresh and mouth-watering flavor!
