“Delightful find for Mediterranean & Italian”
Reviewed April 10, 2012

Intimate, small lunch & dinner spot in a strip mall - family run, wonderful hummous and Med. dishes like Shish Touk and Chicken Shwarma. There's also lasagna, pasta & Italian cuisine. We are regulars here and love the food and service - they treat you like family. Give it a try!

“Excellent Food - hidden gem”
Reviewed September 19, 2011

This tiny restaurant in a strip mall in the Suntree area is a hidden gem. They serve excellent, made to order food influenced by cuisines from across the Mediterranean. My husband like their Shawarma and I enjoy their vegetarian combo (your choice of three of their vegetarian dishes - Eggplant Alexandra is my favorite) . Chicken Abramo (chicken stuffed with rice, cheese, pine nuts with a mustard cream sauce) is wonderful. Service is pleasant and helpful without being overly friendly. They have daily specials which I recommend trying.

“Food was OK, service was horrible”
Reviewed February 14, 2011

My wife is originally from the middle east and I grew up there. We are both used to middle eastern food. We had the shish kabab and egg plant dishes. It was good, but the portions were rather small.

The waitress we had was by far the worst we have had at ANY restaurant anywhere in the world! And that is saying something as we have both eaten in restaurants on nearly every continent. Rather than understanding our point of view, the manager told us we probably didn't want to come back.

If you are looking for excellent middle eastern food in Melbourne, there are many to chose from:
Middle Eastern Aromas,
Petras,
Skewers
to name a few.

“Tasty, Vegetarian Friendly”
Reviewed July 19, 2010

Clean, nicely decorated, and vegetarian friendly, the Alexandria Mediterranean Grill was a pleasant surprise. The dinner entrees are around $13-$22, lunch entrees are around $8. We started off with the non-vegetarian lentil soup, which was tasty, although not filled with lentils as we expected. We also tried the Veggie Combo which came with all kinds of middle eastern vegetarian dishes including a wonderful (although overly salted) Baba Ghanoush and some of the best stuffed grape leaves I've ever had. The leaves didn't have the common acidic vinegar taste. We also tried the Shawarma Chicken (marinated chicken sauteed with tomatoes and onions, served over a bed of rice). Although the chicken was a little dry, the sauce was good. The mint tea and the sage tea were both very tasty and come in a large carafes to keep them warm. The service was good, but not excellent.
