Reviewed 5 April 2017

This is a MUST in Xela, and have enjoyed dining here for 4 years. Service and shrimp dishes always excellent. Went through the list of shrimp options, and, hands down, the Turkish Shrimp dish is one of the best shrimp concoctions ever tasted. Could be the best, though the Coconut Shrimp dish in New Orleans at Mr. B's might still take first place, and what a close call. Fresh and tasty small flour dusted baguette provided for dipping. They have a descent selection of wine for Guatemala and the Mojito is just OK. Despite this, because of the way they consistently prepare the Turkish Shrimp, I still rate this place as excellent and one of my favorite restaurants in the Americas.

We went with a group of 11 people and ordered all the combo tapas. It was AMAZING! Such delicious flavors, good service and tons of food. Highly recommend!

After living here for 40 years, finally went to El Mediterraneo, menu awesome and all 3 plates we had were 5 star, service unfortunately was mediocre. Without doubt the best food in Xela, except for Pizza and draft beer down below in Tecum- same owners-no draft beer was a disapointment.

I've eaten her twice and really like it. The food and service is great. I love how it reminds me of being in Spain. They also have a great bar and wine selection. Although I've only been here solo, it seems like s nice place to bring a date or just have a nice night out. The only thing i can fault them on is that there's no wifi. But then again I can see that it's not really that kind of place to just get lost inside your iPhone, so it's probably better without it.

Went there last nite & had a wonderful time. Shared several different tapas selections with my daughter & husband-hummus, garlic shrimp, mushrooms, mixed cheese plate & a great bottle of wine. All were yummy & our server Katia Lopez was very attentive & informative. Since we will be here for the rest of the week & it is so centrally located we may go back again
