“Great food great value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 18, 2012

I love their lentil soup and their kebabs. The chicken kebab is particularly awesome and a triple kebab plate is big enough to share. Even if you don't want to share Petra is affordable and awesome.

“You must try this place.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 24, 2012

It may be hard to find, but this restaurant has excellent food and Rachel was a wonderful hostess and she served us up a heart Royal Feast. It is a mixture of just about everything, I especially like the rice. We would definitely go again.

“Mediterranean Flavors a Real Find”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 1, 2012

We didn't expect to find Mediterranean food in the this seafood-centric area, but we were pleasantly surprised. Informal but delicious - and great value. My husband and I shared some dishes that showed off the variety of the menu. The service was casual, but we were in no hurry and enjoyed the comfortable laid-back atmosphere. We will go back next time we're in the area.

“Best gyro sandwich we've had”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 27, 2012

Had a gyro sandwich and LOVED it!!! Everything was fresh and very tasty. We are always searching out a Greek restaurant in our travels and this place is our favorite. The service was friendly and timely. We really enjoyed the fireplace and will be going back on our visits to Monterey and if we don't eat in we will be getting take-out for their great sandwich. Also had a soup that was wonderful and tasted like it had just been made.

“Excellent value, excellent food!!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 17, 2012 via mobile

We were looking for a Greek eatery in Pacific Grove & found Petra advertised online.
Sat down around 4 pm for a late lunch
The chef showed us to our table, gave us menus, got our drink order, cooked our fantastic lunch & served it to us and pampered us throughout the meal.
Guess the wait staff was between shifts,
but it didn't matter he was a class act
We both ordered the gyros platter, meat was excellent, great Greek salad lots of feta, great dressing & pita
You will not be disappointed if you choose to visit Petra
