Bistro Mediterranean is by far the best restaurant in East Haven and as good or better than anything in New Haven. The tapas are very creative always. We especially like artichokes and Brussels sprouts salad. But it's hard to rate above anything else.

The service was terific! The owner makes sure he introduces himself to everyone. The food is out of this world. I love the ambiance. It is just a great place to stop and have a great lunch or dinner, and drink.

Visited this restaurant recently, and wouldn't come back due to extremely poor service. And, if I hadn't walked up to the hostess more than a half hour after we were seated, we probably would have been there past closing without having even our drink order...More

Three of us stopped for dinner at Bistro Mediterranean & Tapas Bar. It was busy, so we chose to sit at the bar, rather than wait for a table. Our bartender/server - Miguel, was very friendly and efficient and even remembered us from the last...More
