It was lunch time, and I was looking for a place to eat. I parked in a strip mall off El Toro Blvd., and parked my car adjacent to 3 restaurants. I decided to check them out. The first one I visited was Cafe Matinee Lebanese Cuisine, as this is my favorite type of food.
I felt comfortabe there from the minute I walked in. The AC was at a comfortble level, the place was nicely decorated, and I was greeted by a gracious hostess who went out of her way to please me from the moment I arrived, without being pushy.
I did not expect much in the way of food, as most Mediterranean Restaurants have "just OK food", except for some top rated restaurants in NYC. I ordered Hummus, Babbaganoj, chicken kabobs and a salad with feta cheese.
The only word to describe each dish is "FANTASTIC". I loved is so much that I went back the same day to have dinner with some friends, and intend to put this restuarant on my favorite places to dine list.
Great food, priced right, and top notch service. I recommend this place to anyone who likes good food.
