WOW, my new favorite spot!!!! – this is a small, hidden Mediterranean restaurant that has stolen my heart. my grand kids had suggested i go there and try it out because they thought i might like the atmosphere because i am an artist and they said that there are beautiful paintings inside that i might enjoy. so i decided to give it a try and the paintings were the last things i noticed after entertaining music, great service and most of all the presentation and taste of the dishes. the dishes themselves are the pieces of art in this quaint little hidden gem. the items on the dishes are placed with such precision and are bursting with vibrant colors such as rich purple red cabbage, fresh green minced parsley, bright red and yellow bell peppers and not to mention the delicious kabobs skewered with onions and bell peppers. the combination of the quality of food, music and the owners hospitality has made this place an instant favorite for me and my family. i suggest and recommend Aristo Cafe to anyone and everyone. you are really missing out if you dont try it for yourself.
best mediterranean food Period!!! – Heard about this place from a friend a while ago, decided to try it out... i cannot believe i never tried it before! This place has such fresh and nutritious Greek food as well as the best tasting chicken and garlic sauce i have ever had. im an athlete so i try to eat as healthy as i can but it is hard to find good tasting food while still eating healthy. the first time i went the service was outstanding and very hospitable. My friends and i were surprised with how friendly the employees were! I decided to try the chicken pita wrap. its full of crisp fresh veggies along with their house dressing and once again the garlic sauce...i cannot say enough about this garlic sauce, id put it on all my food if i could. i over heard the owners telling a table near by how they make fresh baklava each day, so i had to try it for myself. turns out this stuff is no joke. not overbearingly sweet like most baklava. it was crisp and just the right amount of sweetness! I was hooked from then on! Overall definitely a place i would more than recommend for all occasions from casual luncheons to more romantic dinner dates!
Great food – This is the best food in the South Bay. It is healthy and delicious. As for customer service, they never blink when I stay an extra hour playing cards at the table. I love the Kabobs!!!!
Best chicken in the South Bay !!! – The food, the atmosphere, the service... Can't go wrong with this place.
After numerous recommendations, my girlfriend and I finally got around to dining at Aristo Cafe.
We started with s sampler plate (Misto) and everything in it was delicious.
For our main course, I ordered the Pollo Mediterraneo.... WOW. Best tasting chicken I ever had.
My girlfriend ordered the lamb chops and they were exquisite. And the best part was that we brought our own bottle of wine and they didn't even charge us a corkage fee.
we finished our meal with a home made coffee cake...exquisite !!!
And do you want to hear the best part? Our bill was less then $40.00
I highly recommend Aristo cafe and can't wait to return.
Disapointed in their customer service – They were not welcoming whatsoever, and the food was simple Meditteranian food, it's not authentic Armenian food. However, if the service was nicer and quicker, I would have gone back. Yet, because of the unwelcoming feeling my peers and I had, we choose not to go there any longer.
