Cozy, warm and romantic room. Very friendly and helpful waitstaff. Excellent meal choices and very fair pricing. Everything was high quality. The selection of three spreads with warm pita was amazing and enough for the three of us. My whole branzino was very good, as...More

interesting food with nice service. They take care in what they make, and they make you feel at home. You will probably want to come back after your first visit to try some more of their interesting and fairly authentic dishes.

This authentic Mediterranean restaurant has wonderful plates to share as well as delightful dinners. The Branzino is as good as any I had in Italy. Not to be missed.

An important element about this restaurant was when on the day of our appointment, management reach out to us to inquire if we would still be joining them at their restaurant. It was a nice, classy touch and very thoughtful act. Come get your loving...More

Soft shell crab season. Best I ever have. Great service, excellent food. BYO makes it so much more attractive. If weather is cooperating, have your lunch or dinner outside! I would go back as often as I can!

Mediterraneo was created out of a desire to explore and share the unique, seasonal, healthy opportunities of the Mediterranean Cuisine, from the shores of Southern Europe to the coast of North Africa. At Mediterraneo, we carefully and without compromise choose each ingredient for its authenticity, quality, and freshness. We invite you to join us and discover for yourself why in 201 Magazine, Best of Bergen, Mediterraneo has been voted the "Best Mediterranean Restaurant in Bergen County" several years in a row. Whether it's a business lunch, a friends get together, a romantic dinner for two, or a private party, we will make sure to offer you a wonderful dining experience. We recommend the delicious, authentic Spanish tapas, the tender Moroccan lamb tagine with dried fruits and our fresh fish, daily imported from the Mediterranean area.
