I have been here a number of times. The food was great until the last time I went this past summer. I ordered a lamb dish, which is one of their specialties and was truly disappointed. There was so much gristle that I spent more time removing it than enjoying the meeting with a very close friend. I know this... More

We eat here once or twice a month. Food is reliably good; proprietor is a delight, and genuinely cares about your enjoyment of the meal. Combination Middle Eastern and Mediterranean food; nice beer and wine menu. Uniquely excellent baba ghanouj. Moderate prices. Highly recommended.

Delicious Fattoush salad with subtle lemon dressing. Tasty kibble 'meatballs'. Everything was fresh and nicely presented. The service was attentive and friendly.

Everything was delicious. The Tabbouleh was so fresh, lacking in resemblance from the stuff you get at the grocery store. I recommend the combo plate to get a taste of everything. I will be going back again.

The food is delicious and different from the usual choices. The mix of Mediterranean flavors is very good, can't wait to go there again.

Cozy and spotless with very lovingly prepared food. Three of us for lunch, we had the falafel, hummus, feta cheese rolls and chicken kebab sandwich. Food was very good and authentic, service was professional and very pleasant. Wonderful lunch at a reasonable price. We will be back!

There's no need to travel into Boston for the best Mediterranean food - Marblehead's Le Bistro offers a great menu, whether you're looking to have lunch, a romantic dinner, or take out. Le Bistro has been a favorite spot for lunch with friends for years, but the recently renovated bistro has made it a nice dinner choice as well. I've... More

The food, delicious middle eastern cuisine, never disappoints. The owner is a delight. Outgoing and quite friendly. He's only topped by the food . . . Hummus, babaganoush, falafel, lamb chops . . . all excellent!

The food we had was excellent. Cuisine is Mediterranean. Had a very good shrimp dish with spinach and mushrooms in a tomato sauce served over rice. Kabobs were also excellent. Service was a little slow but quite pleasant. Only drawback is that the tables are quite close together.

This is a great cute little place. Quiet romantic setting and great food. Wee have brought the kids with us a few times (teenagers) and they feel there's a great selection for them too. Owner is very hospitable and the prices are fair, especially since the food is so good.

Thank Cynthia S
