Mozaic Santa Cruz

Bringing together the best of Mediterranean recipes, Mozaic captures the diversity of taste and flavors of authentic Mediterranean dishes.

After our Redwood trees adventure, we decided to find some place to eat. Since we're near Santa Cruz, my sister went straight to Santa Cruz Beach Boardwalk.

I guess it was the wrong day to visit the Boardwalk. The place was empty except for some open food stalls and the rides were closed while some were under renovation.

We left the Boardwalk and few minutes, we reached Mozaic - a Mediterranean restaurant along Church street.

From the interiors to the restaurant's ambiance, you can tell you are somewhere in the Mediterranean.

To get things started, we ordered their Classic Hummus with Pita Bread.

We ordered their Watermelon Salad, Monterey Bay Fried Calamari, Shrimp Kebab, Grilled Chicken Souvlaki, and ending it with their Baklava.

The food and dining experience was exceptional. Good thing, the place wasn't packed with people yet. From what I read, they have an Arabian Night every Friday with live Belly Dancing performances.
