A Dedicated Family of Chefs

We’ve been creating delicious food for over 14 years

From Humble Beginings

Michael Popovic opened Mediterraneo in November 2002 using his lifetime experiences working in Australia and Europe.

Using the best available ingredients and mallee root charcoal, the restaurant has earned a reputation for consistently well-cooked dishes, extensive wine list and attentive food and wine services. Mediterraneo was awarded with Best Steak Restaurant Award by Restaurant and Catering Association Victoria in 2006 and the wine list just won Two Glass Award by Gourmet Traveller Wine in July 2015.

Premium charcoal

The source of heat and method of cooking is vital to food. We use natural mallee root charcoal, with intense heat and clean smoke, the charcoal imparts a special smokey caramel-like flavours to the dishes. By not cooking the produce in sauce, we highlight the ingredients’ quality. Only quality produce can be used with this method of cooking.

Locally sourced produce

We are constantly buying and helping local businesses and organic farmers, with locally sourced produce.

Our Love for Food

Taste the difference at Mediterraneo…

We make on premise sausages. We age and portion our steaks and fish. We make sure the food is respected and taste how it should. Simple, Quality, Care, Taste.
