I have been going to Café Mangal for both lunch and dinner for over 10 years now. The soups and salads at lunchtime are so delicious and the atmosphere is really lively and fun. All the food is so fresh and reminds me of some of our favorite meals in Istanbul. I'm sure the sandwiches and flatbreads are also terrific... More

Really a nice place to unwind with a friend. We brought our own bottle of Rioja and totally enjoyed the food and the ambiance. The service was very good as well. I'll be back.

My niece asked me to meet her at Cafe Mangel knowing I would love it which I did! My niece had a yummy tuna salad and I got an amazing and generous salad with goat cheese. We had wonderful tea and specialty coffees. We were never rushed and the service was terrific!

We have been to Cafe Mangal for lunch countless times over the past few years. I have met clients here for lunch, and my teenager daughters and I vote it our favorite lunch spot. Lunch features exceptional salads, sandwiches (the caprese is a favorite in my family) and homemade soups (if you are in the area on Wednesdays, do not... More

This is a much more sophisticated than typical "middle eastern" place. Many salads & soups with Mediterranean elements.

Best Roast Beef I have had. Salads are fresh and good too. Can get loud during lunch time. Can be a little expensive, but worth it.

Cafe Mangal is our "go to" restaurant in the Wellesley area. We can count on consistently excellent food and service. And, we love that its BYOB - great way to pair our favorite wines and save money on the wine bill. They provide the wine glass (and they're good ones - not small, cheap ones), the cork screw and we... More

I dine here often with both friends and family, at least twice per month. The food is excellent, fairly priced and the service is excellent. All of the dishes are tasty and interesting and the BYOB means we get to bring our favorite wine or something new to try out. Make reservations!!

What a charming restaurant!! We loved the elegant, quiet and delicious dinner we had here. While lunch is also good, it is a completely different vibe at dinner. The artichoke appetizer was wonderful. The duck main course was perfectly cooked, and the Shish Kabob was tender and flavorful. Don't forget to bring your own wine/beer as they do not sell... More
