Best Mediterannean Food I Have Ever Eaten

"It was lunch time, and I was looking for a place to eat. I parked in a strip mall off El Toro Blvd., and parked my car adjacent to 3 restaurants. I decided to check them out. The first one I visited was Cafe Matinee Lebanese Cuisine, as this is my favorite type of food. I felt comfortabe there from the minute I walked in.

The AC was at a comfortble level, the place was nicely decorated, and I was greeted by a gracious hostess who went out of her way to please me from the moment I arrived, without being pushy. I did not expect much in the way of food, as most Mediterranean Restaurants have "just OK food", except for some top rated restaurants in NYC. I ordered Hummus, Babbaganoj, chicken kabobs and a salad with feta cheese. The only word to describe each dish is "FANTASTIC".

I loved is so much that I went back the same day to have dinner with some friends, and intend to put this restuarant on my favorite places to dine list. Great food, priced right, and top notch service. I recommend this place to anyone who likes good food."

Best hidden Mediterranean Gem in the OC

"The most lovely husband and wife owners have created a lil escape in the heart of a strip mall that you would swear borders the shores of the Mediterranean. The menu features hands down some of the freshest and flavorful cuisine I've ever had - from the chicken, filet skewers and delicious kafta to the Hummus that is HANDS DOWN the best Hummus I've ever had, Anywhere! It's a don't miss for any foodie and is THE BEST value for quality of food you will find anywhere in the state."


Great Kabobs and Hummus

"Its a small restaurant in a strip mall off of El Toro Rd in the rear....The Kabobs are done the way you ask...Lamb Filet or Chicken.... The Hummus is rather authentic middle eastern.. and good. The place is not too pricey and the Kabobs and rice fill you up.
...The service is good and the people are rather friendly... They have special discount coupons often that are really nice so look for them. Plenty of parking ."



"This place was a great recommendation from a friend. They make the best home made grape leaves and humus we have ever had. It was affordable and casual. Give them a try."
