Somewhat out on its own but worth making the effort to get to. The food is good and there's a nice range of beer, cider and wine. The staff are very friendly and they're working hard to try different things. Currently have live music on Sunday afternoons. They're open Xmas Day too!

We used to go here a few years ago but got fed up with the old owner. Friends invited us along and we thought we'd give it another go, not knowing it had changed hands. What a difference! The food is good, it always did good 'skewers' which are still good but my wife had prawns and friend had the... More

I went to the Mediterranean with couple of friends for quick dinner but we were blown away by the fresh flavors and friendly service for a local restaurant. It was recommended to us by our friends who are regulars at this place and now I know why. The food is better than some of the very famous eateries in the... More

Delicious meal at the Mediterranean to celebrate a birthday Difficult master 10 got exactly what he ordered and loved it.. Two teenage boys managed to finish their pizzas as well as a dessert pizza. Their pizzas were tasty, enough topping and they loved them. Their dessert pizzas were scrumptious. Thought they would never eat all but they sure did.. Tasted... More

We got the last table available as the rest were booked for that Friday night. Kids opted for pizza rather than the kids menu options. Both pizzas we ordered were good, and our Chianti. My order of the chicken breast was nice but maybe a little on the salty side. Staff were very attentive. Not a bad place to take... More

Was local to Highbury and decided to try this place with my nieces. Absolutely loved the food. Tried the pasta, duck pizza and buffalo wings. Also had chocolate brownie, apple crumble and cheesecake and was divine. These guys really look after you. Pricing is slightly upmarket but great experience overall
