“Don't Miss This One”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Fresh food. Attentive staff. Tightly run ship. These guys are very well organized. They have to be because the word is out the food is perfect. They don't take lunch reservations. Put your name in and give them your cell phone number. Stroll through surrounding shops or go for a coffee until they call. The menu is short a sweet. Everything coming out of the kitchen looked great. My husband had gyro sandwich and I had falafel wrap. No appetizer or dessert and water to drink. $26 before the tip. Delicious food at a reasonable price. Just do it. Don't be put off by the crowds.

“Great Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

This was recommended to us by the BW where we stayed in Carmel. The food was excellent, the owners were personal and the staff all helped out with everyone. I think this makes such a difference where everyone takes care of everyone. From the fresh bread with Balsamic and Olive oil, to the complementary piece of Baklava, everything tasted great and enjoyed the lunch so much. This place was busy every time I walked by. Wish more restaurants were unique and friendly like this restaurant.

“Great Food and Fun at Demetra!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 3, 2014

Although the hubby is not a great fan of mediterranean cuisine, I was able to talk him into giving Demetra a try after reading all of the great TripAdvisor reviews. They place is very small and hopping at all times, so I strongly recommend reservations. We shared the tzaziki with pita appetizer. The pita is obviously made in-house and is soft, warm, and quite yummy with dip. After seeing the huge portions being served around us, we decided to share a gyro, chicken, and grilled shrimp skewer entree. Everything was well seasoned and cooked well, and we truly enjoyed our dinner (yes, even the hubby). As other reviewers have mentioned, there is floor show as well ... singing, dancing, and guitar playing where patrons are encouraged to participate. It makes for a very fun atmosphere. Overall, a really good experience that I would recommend to all. Large portions, fun atmosphere, and good food ... what's not to like? We had mentioned when making the reservation that we were celebrating our anniversary that week. The owner gifted us with a dessert and a bottle of wine to enjoy later at home. Nice touch!

Outstanding service and food, great atmosphere, fun! Like being on the Mediterranean coast. The cook came out to sing with the servers, everyone joins in and has a great time! Don't miss it!

“Top Notch”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 1, 2014 via mobile

We started with the appetizer sampler platter which had the best stuffed grape leaves I have ever had along with spanakopita, hummus, tziazik and baba ghanoug. All were remarkable. After all that we shared the Greek combination platter of chicken kabob and gyro. Such wonderfully seasoned meet that melted in your mouth. Some of the best Mediterranean food!
