Consistently voted “Best Middle Eastern” and “Best Mediterranean” in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Located in the heart of Berkeley’s Elmwood community, La Méditeranée has been a family and local favorite for generations of diners. Since 1982, our award winning Middle Eastern and Mediterranean dishes, such as meza plates, hummos, kebabs, and fillos, are made from scratch daily. Founder Levon Der Bedrossian and his cousin Garbis opened “Cafe La Med” with the goal of serving good food in a pleasant environment, with warm and friendly service. Our Mid-East and Mediterranean cuisine is inspired by chef Levon’s Armenian and Lebanese family recipes. Family owned and operated, we offer dinner, lunch, & brunch, as well as a daily happy hour, dining on our popular heated patio, and catering delivery & pickup. Anoush Ella! (May it be Sweet!)”

La Méditerranée is Open for Limited Indoor Seating and Outdoor Dining in our Heated Patio!

Our full menu, including specials from our wine list is now available. We also offer local Catering delivery for boxed meals or family style platters.

Black Lives MatterWe stand with #BlackLivesMatter

La Mediterranée wishes to take a strong stance in support of racial justice in America. We acknowledge that we must prioritize and commit ourselves to advancing racial equity as an organizational imperative. We welcome all people from all backgrounds as our customers and as members of our team. Nearly every management position at La Mediterranée is held either by a person of color, a woman, a member of the LGBTQ community, or a person of immigrant background. Our extensive charity work, donations, and fundraisers support a myriad of diverse causes in the community. We also know that commitment without greater action is meaningless to those most impacted by racism.

La Mediterranée stands in solidarity with those protesting systemic racism on the frontlines and from home. We believe that racism has no place in the restaurant industry or in our country.

These are a few of the actions we are taking today (read more) …
