The Mediterranean is a casual, energetic, everyday restaurant located in the heart of downtown Boulder, Colorado. Known for our tapas and the town’s best outdoor dining, we’ve been offering exceptional food at a great value for over 20 years.

Our diverse menu features tapas & paellas, artisan pizzas from our Italian wood-burning oven and fresh seafood just to name a few. We also feature a world-class wine, beer and spirits program beautifully complemented by our signature cocktails.

In keeping with our focus on local interpretations of Mediterranean inspired cuisine, Executive Chef Kelly Kingsford and Chef de Cuisine Corey Cunningham offer traditional fare as well as original dishes from every corner of the Mediterranean basin – Italy, Spain, Greece, France, Morocco, Lebanon.

Come join us for a leisurely lunch on the patio sipping a crisp Rosé, a romantic dinner for two, or a celebratory gathering of 20 of your closest friends. We’re genuinely grateful for those choosing to dine with us and it shows in everything we do.
