Mediterraneo, located in Waterloo, Ontario, Canada, is a casual fine dining restaurant serving European cuisine focusing mainly on Greek fare.  The restaurant is essentially a long rectangle with small tables near the front and large group tables tucked into more secluded areas.  I was with a large group and began my meal with the three dip (tzatziki, homous, tarama)  platter which also included warm, soft pitas.  For smaller groups, a tzatziki and pita appeitizer is also available.

Tzatziki, Homous and Tarama Dip with Pita (Three Dip Platter), $11.25

There are a wide variety of entrees to choose from such as chicken/pork or lamb souvlaki, seafood options like the kalamari dinner, pastas, specialty items such as the Kotopoulo peppercorn (charbroiled chicken breast topped with a peppercorn sauce), vegetarian options and a small kid’s menu.

Chicken Souvlaki with Rice, Roasted Potatoes, Greek Salad and Tzatziki Sauce, $14.95

Fried Kalamari with Rice, Veggies, Potatoes, Tzatziki Sauce, $17.95

Pasta with Lamb in Greek Style Sauce (Rigatoni Capama), Toasted Bread and Parmesan, $16.50

Boneless Chicken Breast with Peppercorn Sauce (Kotopoulo Peppercorn), Veggies and Rice, $14.95

Mediterraneo is a quiet and quaint restaurant with quality food, fair prices and kind service.  I especially like their rice which was uniquely flavoured and perfectly cooked.  The server also revealed a little secret about her teenage years which made me laugh. Mediterraneo is definitely worth a visit.
