The Cleopatra plate has lamb, chicken, rice, Greek salad, your choice of hummus or baba ganoush (excellent), and pita bread. You will leave full and satisfied if you order it. I have never ordered anything else there because it is such a satisfying meal, but I am willing to bet that everything on the menu, including the lemon soup is... More

Found this place while on a break from the court house. They have a large and varied menu, yet can put out a lovely plate of food in only a few minutes. I had the 'KING TUT,' a variety plate of pita, hummus, falafel, dolmas, baba ganoush and a small greek salad. Everything was good. The hummus was especially good.... More

Nice change from the standard sw food here in town. Good size proportions but over priced. Located in the strium of the Design Center which lacks in ambience

This may be the best Greek/Mediterranean in Santa Fe. Located next to Regal cinema which is perfect for before or after movie. I ordered gyro and salad plate, loved every bite. Lots of menu choices, can't wait to go back and try more but I'll probably get the same thing since I loved it so much. The sliced gyros had... More

Unlike those I've had during several visits to Greece, Cleopatra's the bechamel white sauce covering this moussaka was not browned and came with potatoes, so sort of more like the Balkan variety. The Greek salad was mostly lettuce, so cued to American tastes vice cucumbers, tomatoes, feta, etc. The Gyro sandwich was reasonably tasty but made with the pulverized and... More

Order at the window and have Mediterranean/Greek style food served at your table - couscous, falafel, olives, etc. Food is good and fresh. The dining area is very large with hard tables, chairs and floor and, therefore a bit noisy if there are more than 5 tables being used. Close to theaters and serves beer and wine - not great...

We go to Cleopatras quite often and it's very consistent. I had lunch there recently and the Mina plate was yummy as always. It's gyro meat on a pita topped with tzatziki sauce, chopped lettuce and tomato and a greek salad.

so. so. It was good and that is about all you say about it. We both lamb gyros. They were very good but the service just mediocre.

If you are looking for Middle Eastern food while in Santa Fe, this is where you want to go. It is not downtown or in any tourist area. It is located across from a Regal Cinema. The food is tasty. The TVs have music videos with Arabic scrolling on the screen. This is casual dining on wooden tables. You place... More

The Greek Salad and the Nile Plate are just SO good, and SO reasonable...This is a great take out place, though I am less wild about sitting inside, as the acoustics are not good, and neither is my hearing! Go here twice a month, anyway....
