We went to celebrate the birthday of my niece, on a cold and windy Friday night. The place is warm, welcoming and cosy with superb service and exquisite Mediterranean food. The wait staff (Nigel) was very informative and friendly. We felt so comfortable and enjoyed a delicious meal. We were delighted with the Birthday celebration and had a wonderful night. The owner Eduard personally congratulated my niece for her birthday which was very nice of him.
Loved the place, food and staff. Many thanks for all and we definitely highly recommend this restaurant for family occasions and celebrations!!

In review I am fussy….believe me !!
From start to finish the service was exceptional, attentive and real …the food was fresh, well cooked and well presented. We all ate light meals that were tasty and well received, although the steaks and other larger meals that we saw delivered to other tables were enormous.
The added attraction of a belly dancer made for a few raised eyebrows, however the talented performer knew the difference between entertaining and just performing and actually added to the ambiance… All round a great show.
On the night in question the extractor in the kitchen was struggling, however the matter was fixed by opening windows and offering a free wine…
This is a restaurant that delivers good food and good old fashioned service. It has all the elements, long may it last.
Its always fun to visit at the weekend when the belly dancer appears mid-meal, very entertaining! I’ll definitely be back again and again
I recommend this restaurant to everyone who likes or would like to try Mediterranean food.
Thanks again to the staff for a wonderful meal.
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.
Have been there a few times for dinner, drinks and nibbles. Every time we have been super impressed with the service, smiles, delicious food, and an all-round amazing experience.
There’s an extensive selection of wines to choose from and the menu has a vast range of dishes, it’s always hard to choose. There are vegetarian options available and the eye fillet is delicious! The pizzas are the best I’ve ever had, as well as the melt in your mouth Tiramisu.
The staff are always efficient and on form. They are well trained which is a nice change from other restaurants in Auckland, and are well supervised by the maitre d’ who is incredibly professional and on to it.
The setting is stunning with palm trees and decor. We have celebrated birthdays and anniversaries here as it’s always ideal. There’s convenient parking right at the door.
We love the friendly staff in particular the maitre d’. Always a fabulously enjoyable and entertaining evening, very warm, and welcoming. Can’t wait to return!
After relaxing in the outdoor area with a bottle or 2 of fabulous wine, we then had more drinks with the owner and staff who are all fabulous (Thanks Eduard and Kirk aka James)
I can’t tell you how much we enjoyed our evening and will definitely be back for more. Haven’t been to a great place like this for a very long time.
Went there on Friday night with my partner for a dinner. Beautiful food, the belly dancing was supurb. Very welcoming atmosphare, the owner introduced himself and looked after us with complemantry drinks. Would highly recommend to anyone, we had such a great night out. WILL BE BACK!
Definitely one of the best restaurants…we have been to the Mediterranean a couple of times and we were never disappointed. The pizzas, lasagna, kebabs are incredible! not to mention those little baklavas that the owner gave us for free…delicious…but the best was the TIRAMISU!!! WOW!!! JUST AMAZING….We’ll be back soon…the service is excellent and the staff is very friendly…Five stars!
We would have given the restaurant 4 stars as we had an almost perfect meal.
What bumped it up to 5 stars was, there was a little too much chili on my pizza for my taste. The manager asked about the meal. By the time we went to pay, he had a new pizza already cooked and prepared to my personal taste ready for us as a gift to take home.
What great service to a local family from a local restaurant – Fabulous
The aroma coming from the kitchen was a prelude to the delicious main that arrived at exactly the right time.
The belly dancer was very entertaining although I did receive a kick under the table from my wife for looking perhaps a little too much!
The dancers alternate which night they dance, but the one we had was pretty good. We would definitely recommend this fabulous new restaurant to everyone, and we will certainlMorey be dining there again soon. Our Compliments to the Meditteranean & Pizza Restaurant in Birkenhead!!!
JUNE/09. We did dine there again in June with our adult children for a family dinner to celebrate my birthday. Food was just as great, with everybody raving about the Chicken Parmesan, Cannelloni Ricotta dish and the Lasagne Romano. Eduardo sure knows how to make a fuss of you on your birthday!He and his waitress sang Happy Birthday to me & shouted our table a bottle of wine. I have been recommending this restaurant to all my friends.
