One of many restaurants from the Terra Momo group, Mediterra is a very popular, upscale casual restaurant in an attractive, trendy setting.
It's atmosphere is vibrant and attracts a diverse 35+ aged clientele.
They distinguish themselves by combining the flavors of the 21 countries surrounding the Mediterranean. The restaurant favors purchasing locally sourced produce, cheeses, and organic beef.
The menu also offers organic, vegan & vegetarian selections.
The interior is casually elegant with a rustic feel. The colors throughout are warm earth tones with exposed brick surrounding glass walls and wood beam ceilings with soft halogen lighting. Seating takes place around wooden tables set with square woven place mats, a white bread plate, flatware and glasses.
Mediterra has an attractive well stocked bar, perfect for a before dinner cocktail while you're waiting to be seated.
The Taverna is located off to the right as you enter. There’s a bar and a couple of long café tables with bar stools, as well as a few tables and chairs for those looking for more private conversation..
If you’re there during the warmer months, you're in for a real treat if you are able to get a table outside on the attractive piazza with a nearby bubbling fountain. It's one of the few places in Princeton with good outdoor dining.

New Jersey Leisure Guide strives to provide analytic restaurant reviews .
The methodology used is research, analysis driven --- as opposed to that of a single restaurant critic or a viewer comment posting board.
Data is gathered from our viewers e-mail restaurant comments, Internet research, and professional restaurant critics. The data is sorted, (weeding out the obvious biased, "bone to pick", and out of consensus comments), analyzed, and the review is created.
