I believe there are two outlets of this restaurant, with one in Riverside Mall, and the one I was at in I'langa Mall. The URL seems to be for the Riverside one, but at least the phone number will help.

Disappointed in the food. Cold, chewy and trainee waiter with no care to resolve our bad experience or immediate complaints. Our woste seafood experience with no management intervention. Will not return.

Wow - sad that a once favourite spot has lost it's touch. Whilst the service from our waitron was pleasant, no management visited our table. It felt like all the food was prepared in a slap dash, disinterested manner - there was absolutely no flavour...or authentic mediterranean finger licking goodness that used to abound. Calamari heads tasteless served with bland rice, prawns tasteless. Salad was great chunks of iceberg (most of which was the stem), some tomato, thick slices of onion, a couple of olives and a sprinkling of feta.More

Quick friendly service. Food was delicious and portion of Hake combo was huge and perfectly cooked. Only issue would have been very little air conditioning but the Restaurant did have Fans to help.

Worst squid heads ive tasted in my life. Dry, unseasoned and old tasting. Waste of money and spoiled an evening with family.

This is my go to place for the best and freshest sushi anywhere. I have had many different dishes here and have never been disappointed. The owners are hands on and the staff are amazing. My favorite place when I’m in Neslpruit.

Delicious and fresh sushi and seafood. Four year old ate her entire plate without complaint. Our waiter, Mcdonald, was awesome. It felt like a sea holiday during mid September in the Lowveld!

We used to be regulars at Mediterranean, but these past 6 months it has been unaffordable. The sushi is quite expensive, for example the Salmon Roses. But the salmon is cut so thin, that you can see rice through it. Their food overall is amazing!...But so EXPENSIVE. For 3 people eating main courses, a few drinks, and one person eating a few plates of sushi, R1 300. And with lockdown, we did not know that they were closing their kitchen at 7 o’clock. So we didn’t order early enough. We noticed that the staff were getting weird around us and we asked what’s going on. When told we said sorry and asked if we could still order, and we were told that the kitchen was going to be angry but that they’ll wait for us. It was just a bit of an uncomfortable situation. And fact is, we just can’t afford to eat there anymore.More

Omw this was the start if my 5 started review in Mar 2017 "I wish we had this in Jhb!! My first time here and we came back 2 times!" I'm back in Nelspruit and rushed over expecting food from the Gods like last time....King Prawns were terrible tasteless over cooked. Sauces bland. The worse was the "smash" packet potatoes mash an absolute kitchen crime no self respected chef would be proud serving that.. & to be actually showing off about it on the menu. Crazy. It was stiff lifeless stodgy disgusting Should've been my first red flag. Mums dory fish was over cooked and tasteless. Chips were unimaginative chunks. & I paid a fortune for these meals so way to pricey for the terrible quality. It should've been free. Restuarant was hardly packed yet waiters were friendly but useless nowhere to be found. My takeaway sushi was the worse worse than fast food mall sushi plus half the things left out incl soy sauce! Half my takeaway forgotten. Sooo disappointed after my 5 star+!! review in 2017. Apparently owners are the same..so not sure what happened. How sad that a once super brilliant Restuarant has been run into the ground... from every aspect service price taste quality etcMore
