Waitress was excellent but food was not. Much better in the past. Instant mashed potatoes and baked potatoes not even a choice. Canned mixed veggies. Everything very salty and tasted processed. Soup tasteless. Very disappointing. Gravy with chicken dinner was beef gravy. Loved our last meal but this one was very different and won't return. Roast beef rubbery. Changed chefs or suppliers.

As our server said, I tried the calamari once but found them rubbery. A correct statement.

However the chicken stuffed with spinach and feta was good. It had pilaf rice, potatoes and veggies.

The place was packed for a Monday night, probably due to the aftermath of Storm Arthur, and the kitchen found it hard to keep up. However the servers told us it would be slow and were very friendly.

Stopped here for lunch. Food was delicious & fresh. Service was very good. Restaurant was clean and ambiance was great! The kids menu was great, love it when restaurants offer choices that are healthy and not deep fried! There were many different choices for kids including souvlaki which made my kids happy!
Would definitely recommend and go back.

My wife and I love Greek cooking so when our B&B hostess (Fundy Heights B&B) suggested Mediterranean Restaurant we gladly accepted her offer to make a reservation for us for dinner. It was our first visit to this restaurant and it certainly will be the first of many. Our only regret is that we do not live in the Saint John area so we will have to reserve our next truly great Greek meal until a future visit. On this night, with our waitress (Lisa) providing guidance, we had an exceptional Greek meal. The Triopita that we ordered for an appetizer (home made by the current owners’ (John and Chris) mother; the restaurant has been in the family since 1971) far surpassed any that we had before. The meal that we split (Mixed Grill Platter for two) had all of our Greek favorites (sausage, lamb, pork, chicken, more Triopita, and other Greek favorites). We ate our fill and still had enough to take home for our lunch on the Ferry ride that we would be taking from Saint John (NB) to Digby (NS) the following afternoon. Our visit was on a Wednesday evening (6:00 PM) and the restaurant was full of very happy customers; an indication of the fine food that is served and the wonderful service that is provided. If you like Greek food and find yourself in Saint John by all means stop by. You won’t be disappointed.
