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."

"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
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."
