Visited this cafe for lunch, chicken not available, lamb cutlets only partially cooked, other food was average at best. State of the washrooms was very poor, in hindsight wished we had gone somewhere else

Nice place for a tasty lunch on hot day. You can sit outside with shade. We rode bikes there from Santa Monica along the beach and locked them up outside the restaurant. The server was really friendly. It is Eastern Mediterranean food and there doesn't...More

We picked this place for dinner because they advertised gluten free options (I have celiac disease). Their menu lists GF wraps for an extra charge but when I went to order one I was told they don't have those, and haven't for months. Disappointing. I...More

The title says it all. It was a relaxed atmosphere that promoted talking and enjoying food. We ordered to 4 for $40 and it was amazing. Price seemed reasonable. I would eat there again, often if it was possible.

Authentic tasty mediterranean food. The best falafel we have ever had. The food is perfect, staff is friendly. The complaint I have is about having to eat such a delicious meal with plastic cutlery.

This WAS one of our favorite restaurants. They have a new chef and changed their menu. All of the fantastic appetizers are gone. No lamb. No beets. Just ordinary med food now.

If you are in the mood for Mediterranean food, this restaurant is fairly good. The service was a little on the slow side. A mistake was made on my order, but they corrected it. The portion size was fairly large. The falafel was pretty good,...More

Falafel pita and meze street-side make for a fine way to spend a Sunday brunch at the Med. People-watching matches the food, which is just nothing short of fresh and interesting. There is some tension between staff, but the dishes do not disappoint. Two thumbs...More

Venice has always danced to its own beat as the
epicenter of bohemian culture in Los Angeles. Along
the boardwalk there are street performers and local
craftsmen selling their wares. Original paintings,
souvenirs, and jewelry are on display. Crowds of
visitors marvel at the sites while weightlifting
enthusiasts pump iron in plain view, and skateboarders
do their tricks around the skate park. All of it
