“Excellent - Family/Neighborhood Restaurant on Steroids”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

My wife, daughter, and I just dined at this fine establishment for the second time (for me) and for the second time, I walked out extremely happy we chose to eat there. This is a family / neighborhood restaurant, without the "hole in the wall" feel of that label. It is nicely decorated, the owner/chef is out there talking to his patrons that he seems to know very well, and the food is outstanding. If that is not enough, the prices are extremely reasonable for the quality and quantity served. I highly recommend it

“Second visit to Mandaloun: 5 star food/ 5 star service!”
Reviewed December 5, 2013

I visited Mandaloun with a friend for dinner about 2 months ago and then again with my husband. Both times it was not crowded and food was delicious. Both times the owner surprised us with a dessert on the house and came out to say hello. Also the waiter ran to get espresso coffee next door just for us, so that we can enjoy our desserts. How kind and accommodating!

“Way too much money for the quality”
Reviewed November 29, 2013

We just spent $69 for 4 for lunch! Not any alcohol and one child's meal. This is our third visit and each time, it seems it is way, way too much money for the value. The child had a kid's meal hamburger, we ordered two appetizers, and two entrees, all vegetarian. Yikes! The prices are way, way too much for the money. The food is OK. Probably the best is the Pita with the Olive Oil that is complimentary.

“Hidden Gem”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

This is a family owned and run restaurant 2nd to none. The food and service were outstanding with a positive attitude from start to finish. The owner/chef came to table offering advice and information in a warm and friendly way. He returned often to make sure our needs were met, but not in a obtrusive way. The wait staff was also attentive and excellent. The food was excellent and well priced offering a wide selection of Mediterranean dishes. My wife and I had one of our best meals in Jacksonville and will be returning. Note that the restaurant is located deep inside a plaza and can be easily missed.

“All Around Winner”
Reviewed November 17, 2013 via mobile

Great chow and fast service. Definitely will return. Chef/owner came out to check on us. Don't let the strip mall location throw you off, this place is a gem. Even had a web coupon!
