“Good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 5, 2013

The service here is good. Reservations are well done. Having a corporate lunch here is pure delight. The wine collection is awesome and the ambience and surrounding is calming enough to make one enjoy the well done fish, chicken or lamb specialities. I loved the salads too. They use great cheese.

“Excellent Italian Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

Risottos and meat dishes are delicious. The restaurant is located in a nice garden setting with very good service. It is just opposite the UN and ICRAF which makes it a great stop after work.

“Family Lunch for Christmas”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 25, 2012

Great lunch spent with family, good food - starter of bell peppers excellent, pizza good, ravioli good, dessert was excellent, chocolate mousse and sizzling brownie yum. We had cocktails which were also very good, I loved the Pimms and my husband liked his Bloody Mary.
Service was very good, James was very accommodating.
Only odd thing was we asked for a table outside close to the garden as my one and half year old niece with us and on arrival we see a sign board saying do not walk or play on the grass. Of course Children are going to go straight for the garden so no logic and there were not enough high chairs for the kids. My niece and a friend's daughter had to be put in their push chairs.
All in all a good lunch, definitely go again.

The Pizza at Mediterraneo is just the best. The cocktails were more than refreshing. The ambiance creates a cool and relaxed atmosphere.
