Reviews on Mediterranean food in Fairbanks, Alaska, United States. Its far north location means Fairbanks gets the midnight sun in the summer and the northern lights during Aurora Season (August to April). These wonders define the city, along with winter activities, the gold rush past, Alaska Native heritage, a vibrant arts scene and “golden heart” hospitality. Enjoy dog mushing, panning for gold, floating the Chena River or visiting a museum. Add a nearby trip to a hot springs, Denali, the Arctic or the Interior. Fairbanks is the gateway to discovering Alaska.

Great variety of crepes, all delicious! Stopped in for the first time for breakfast, and was back a few hours later for a sweet crepe (made an excellent cappuccino too).Thank you for your great review Michael, we hope to see you again soon!

We were looking for something that wasnât traditional Alaska seafood. Bobbyâs was the place. It was quiet and had good service. The Greek food was flavorful and a good portion. My husband had the chicken Caesar Salad which was huge. The prices are expensive but that seems to be the case everywhere in Alaska. It was a pleasant diversion from fish every day.
This restaurant is located on College road and is only open when the Farmers Market is open. We had stopped here for lunch before getting a truck load of garden soil.
For the two decades I've called Alaska home, Fairbanks has been in dire need of quality Near Eastern and Mediterranean cuisine. I traditionally have gotten my fix only while traveling to other places. Thank goodness the Aurora Mediterranean has appeared on the scene at last. I dropped in on First Friday this month and, while not teeming with patrons, a steady stream of hungry customers were in and out with smiles on their faces while I tried to decide what I wanted. Dine in or take out.There's nothing fancy here, but the property is bright and very clean. The smiling faces behind the counter taking orders and cooking indicate a lot of pride in what they do. I believe the owner comes from Jordan, and I can say the food is authentic for the region. I decided on the Veggie Combo ($14) with 3pc falafel, 3pc dawali (grape leaves), hummus, baba ganoush. I also had a choice of two salads. I picked tabouleh and "Arabic salad", the latter having cucumber, tomatoes, parsley and mint mixed with lemon olive oil vinaigrette. The meal was served with tahini and grilled pita bread. The first thing I noticed was the freshness of all the ingredients, a relatively rarity in Fairbanks, where some places serve up re-heated dishes prepared elsewhere with mediocre vegetables. They all taste the same it seems. Not at Aurora. The colors and aromas give away the quality before the food even touches your lips. Prepare for a flavor explosion in your mouth. The baba ganoush was the best I've ever eaten, hands down, with a rich, smoky flavor and a creamy texture.Aurora Mediterranean is going to be a regular stop for me. I can't recommended it more strongly. It's a bright new spot on the Fairbanks food scene. Long-time locals joke about the building being cursed having had a long string of restaurants come and go over the years. I think the friendly, hard-working folks at Aurora Mediterranean can make this a landmark instead of a footnote. Tell your friends!
