We went to Mediterraneo a year ago not long after it opened and loved it. This year we went twice and still loved, but it was not as :perfect" as last year. The food is authentic Middle Eastern as the owner/chef is from Lebanon. We liked everything we have eaten here but the lamb with the mushrooms in cream sauce is particularly memorable. And the rose petal ice cream to finish off the meal is wonderful. But prices have been raised substantially since we first visited, making it less of a bargain (but still well-worth the price). And on belly-dancing nights, the service is slow and confused, but still friendly and we had a great time. So try Mediterraneo when you are visiting Nuevo Vallarta and want a break from seafood and Mexican cuisine.

We were a group of 8 with a reservation but had to wait for a table. They actually brought in tables and set them up in a corner. Drinks were served promptly along with pesto bread and tabouli. After that we waited an hour for the meal. It was busy and the service was interrupted by a thunderstorm that caused the clients outside to be moved under the roof. That being said the lamb skewers were excellent. One of our group had the calamari said to be worth dying for. The owner came over and apologized for the delay, said some friends had come in earlier without reservations and he didnot want to insult them by not seating them. Kudos for the apology. followed up by complimentary rose petal ice cream

Had a great time eating grape leaves, kibbe and rose petal ice cream! Everything is made on the premises. The owner, chef Mario showed us the jocoque being made in the kitchen. Wonderful flavours and authentic cuisine, we will definitely be back. Great service too! Thanks Daniel

Exceptional food and a very nice atmosphere. Sea food is very well prepared and fresh. Good selection of meat dishes. Wine selection is a little bit pricey but a good choice is never a mater for crying.

We enjoyed our dinner at Mediterraneo.The attention, food and service was excellent and a good value. We were greeted by the owner/chef and treated to an enjoyable rose pedal ice cream to complete a very nice meal.
