Bringing life to West End with a whole lot of spice and rich, savoury flavours is Mediterraneo, a restaurant for the well-travelled and those after the perfect combination of Middle Eastern and European fare.
Paying homage to the Mediterranean region’s relaxed lifestyle and coastal views, Mediterraneo’s atmosphere is equally sublime, thanks to the venue’s vibrant colour scheme and spacious outdoor terrace.
Whether its a drop of French Rivera wine and Greek tapas, or an elaborate Arabic feast that you want, all palates are catered to at Mediterraneo. Much like the sea itself, the menu travels from coast to coast, incorporating signature influences spanning from Italy to the Middle East.
Prepare to salivate over signature menu items such as the rich Lamb Kofta, marinated Morrocan Chicken, and the decadent Souvlakis, skewered alongside winter vegetables and drizzled in tazatziki and Grecian flavour. Fans of Italian cuisine can expect to fall in love with the menu’s extensive selection of tasty tagines, hearty seafood dishes, and creamy pasta.
Smaller bites include their Mushroom Crostini bread with truffle oil and Parmigiano, an artichoke and fava dip, and the classic Lebanese tabbouleh side dish. Dining with a crowd has also never been easier, thanks to Mediterraneo’s dip tasting platter and Mezze share plates. As for desserts, traditionalists will appreciate their espresso and Kahlua tiramisu cradled by sponge biscuit, while more modern palates will mob for Mediterraneo’s take on Mastciha Ice cream, which comes served on a delicate Kataifi pastry nest.
Expertly cruising through this abundance of colourful flavours and combining them with ease is manager Guiseppe Caputo, famous for previously pioneering the celebrated Spaghetti House in South Brisbane. Taking inspiration from West End’s beloved unconventionality and the Mediterranean, the menu amalgamates traditional meals with exotic twists.
For those who prefer to dine in the sunshine as opposed to late at night, Mediterraneo’s also houses a quirky cafe that services crisp sandwiches, pastries, light snacks, and coffee daily from 6.30am onwards.
Mediterraneo understands that hunger strikes at every time of the day, which is why they’re open for casual dining breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Welcoming diners in from Wednesday to Sunday, and for early morning coffee every day of the week, Mediterraneo is the perfect location to drink in cosmopolitan vibes and grab a gratuitous bite or two before heading to work in the nearby CBD.
No need to part the seas to find this foodie paradise – a taste of the Mediterranean’s only one bite away.
