My wife and I came here after a day at Manresa Beach. In a strip mall with easy parking, some outdoor dining but nicely appointed and good atmosphere inside. Very reasonable prices. I had the falafel platter with lemon chicken soup; the soup needed something but the falafels were great. Well balanced: just enough crisp on the outside and soft... More

Zameen is in the heart of cute Aptos. The outside patio has ample seating and welcomes dogs. The heat lamps are turned when it's cold or foggy. The inside is lovely with lovely Mid Eastern décor. I love their wood fired pizzas, they have scrumptious toppings to choose from. It is not super thin crust. We share a pizza and... More

What surprises me is such great flavors at a price for regular locals. I saw families, couples, friends, bantering and tranquil tables. Lightness and thoughtfulness. Think this is a new go-to spot for us. Beautiful kenetic sculpture in the garden plaza. Sweet Aptos.

There are several reasons why a person might enjoy a particular restaurant. Her's our list for Zameen: FREINDLY SERVERS: Yes, the food IS good (more below) but what knocks us out is how polite, friendly, and efficient the servers are. Makes you want to go back; and we have, many times. MEDITERRANEAN FOOD: The salads, the meats, the side dishes,... More

We have been here twice and been impressed with the food quality. Good mediterranean inspired dishes come served as plates, wraps or salads. The gyro meat, chicken and shrimp are nicely spiced ; the salads fixings are so fresh and tasty. The outdoor setting is generally pleasant in the moderate climate, but they could use a couple more umbrellas. You... More

Food is great. Cooked on open flame. Kababs are delicious. Prices are reasonable for the quality and quantity you get. If you like Homos, Dolemeh, Taboli and so on; this is the place. Great service.

Expensive for what it serves. Traditional middle eastern fare. Unimaginative. Outdoor seating at lunch. Salads and pizzas best bet. Unfortunately, if you like this sort of cuisine there are not many other choices in SC or Aptos.
