Mediterranean cuisine is renowned for the way its rich ingredients inspire innovative food fighting techniques. Skillfully execute the Kebab Eye Jab or the Hummus Humdinger with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $40 worth of Mediterranean cuisine and drinks at Olive You in downtown Kirkland. Olive You fills its convivial, family-friendly dining room with the lemon and olive-oil aromas of the Mediterranean, courtesy of a yummy menu of gyros, kebabs, souvlakis, falafel, and more. Liquid libations offset the entrees with a wine-dark sea of wine-dark wine, and will delight diners with a dazzling display of strangely colored cartoon elephants. To fully immerse its diners in the spirit of its homeland, Olive You hosts live music, as well as traditional entertainment.
The Seattle Times featured Olive You for its fresh deli selection, and Seattle Weekly featured owner Timur Leno for his dedication to improving the neighborhood through Olive You. Yelpers give the restaurant a savory rating of 3 stars:
- Few joints west of the wine-dark sea evoke the bountiful extravagance and sunny sidewalk camaraderie of the Mediterranean cafe better than Olive You. – Seattle Times
- My dinner was the Crunchy Creta Paximadi…The dish was nourishing and comforting, and as I munched I imagined a mama in some little Greek village making this treat for her son as an after-school snack. – Sarah DeWeerdt, Seattle Weekly
