“Great surprise”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

Our segway tour guide recommended this place to us after our tour and we were very happy! The hummus is amazing and all of our food was delicious. It's in an area of Galveston that is less touristy so we never would have found it on our own. We definitely recommend you give it a shot!

“Healthy Food on the Strand”
Reviewed June 6, 2014

So much of the food in Galveston is fried, so this is a nice healthy option. Went for lunch on my own, sat at the long bar that runs nearly the length of the place, and had a small Greek salad with an order of spanikopita. Would have liked for the spinach pie to be a little bigger and less soggy, but I'm a sucker for Greek food and was glad to find the place. There were lots of options -wish I'd gotten the hummus topped with gyro meat. Owner was quite friendly -- maybe a bit too friendly with me. I am always a little freaked out when a male employee puts his hands on me. Maybe not exactly kosher. But maybe he's just old school and I'm of the opinion that strangers shouldn't touch other strangers. Perhaps if you're female, go with a friend or date!

“Very Good Mediterranean, great service”
Reviewed May 13, 2014

Walked in to the Med Chef starving from walking the Strand (which is mostly a bar scene) and old Galveston area. The atmosphere is more of an off-the-street café than a full blown Med restaurant. We had three starters for our meals, the Hummus Supreme, Greek Pizza and the Spanakopita. It was all very good and you could tell the proprietors took pride in their food and their restaurant. The service was excellent and friendly. I've read some of the bad reviews and I'm not sure what other reviewers were expecting. If they are looking for dancing girls, beaded curtains and the heavy smell of garlic this isn't your place. But if your looking for very good food and service this is the place to go.

“Lackluster Food was Just ok”
Reviewed March 21, 2014

The restaurant has a nice decor, but playing Jimi Hendrix as background music takes the atmosphere down. The hummus appetizer was ok, but bland. The Greek salad could have been better. Gyros entree was dominated by doughy pita bread. Service was ok. The first clue that we should have walked past this restaurant was that it was almost empty on Friday night.
