What People Say

  • This place is flowing with warm hospitality and good food. We found it to be a brilliant place for a family group get together. Yummy pizza, and my 3 year old enjoyed her beef ravioli in a tomato sauce. Apologies to the other customers for our two 3 year olds who were having far too much fun, sprinting from our large indoor table to the alfresco seating outside. That outdoor table would be awesome in the height of a summer evening. Very mediterranean... Oh, and the tiramisu... NOW I realise why people go on about it. I don't think I'd ever had a proper one till now. Beautiful, decadent, rich, melt-in-your-mouth. As I said, great food. :)

    Food Voyeur,

  • Went of with a few friends for diner last night. Very friendly and attentive staff. Great atmosphere inside and outside. Really loved the belly dance by Candice, she was absolutely stunning and awesome. Food! very delicious from entree to desert. Had spicy prawns for entrée and for mains I had the Tarakihi fish, both very well balanced with Moroccan flavours overflowing!. Skewers is another must try dish. Food arrived in a very timely manner without any delays considering its was a Saturday night and last weekend before Xmas. We also got to mingle with the owner of restaurant as we were the last ones to leave the place, he was very friendly as well. Overall a must try for all Mediterranean food lovers.. definitely giving a 5 star rating for food and service.

    AL Kumar,

  • This is only the second time I have been to this restaurant, as it is a bit far from where I live, but wow! The portions are HUGE, and the food delicious. Best hummus I have ever had - just divine. And the dessert platter was mind blowing. Great place all around - the staff are super-friendly, as is the person I assume is the owner. The only quibble would be that some of the dishes are pricey, but then again there are plenty of lower-cost items and you can always have a few mezze items and make a meal out of those. Love this place!


  • What you want in a restaurant is great food, The Mediterranean fails with this, it has AMAZING food. (both fish and meat were incredible) The cherry on the top is great, polite, knowledgable service (approach you when you want assistance), spacious layout (you have enough room to both talk and move) and great character (feel like you have stepped away from Auckland and into somewhere exotic). Would be perfect for both a group or a couple. I never go to the same restaurant twice but this place may change my mind.

    Ayden Barnett,

  • Incredible food. Incredible service. The kebabs are just great, and that hummus is brilliant. However when I had that seafood fettucine... phwoar. I don't think I've ever had such a good fettucine anywhere else thus far, and it's not the meant to be the 'star' of their entire menu. I highly recommend this place. It's a staple for myself and family/friends. They look after you exceptionally well and the ambiance is just the icing on the cake.

    Asad Naseem,

  • Came here with a breakfast voucher the other day and really enjoyed it. Waitress was really lovely, and eggs Benedict was good and filling. Only down side - coffee was average and we were sat near the bar so felt awkward being able to over hear all the employees conversations.

    Katie Heron,
