Mediterranean Plus is a restaurant located in Suite D of Belvedere Park Plaza, 6895 North 9th Avenue, which specializes in various Mediterranean cuisines, including Greek and Middle Eastern dishes.

Owner and chef Mounir Khalil opened the restaurant in East Pensacola Heights on January 27, 2003. The original location at 2900 East Cervantes Street (cater-cornered from Jerry's Drive-In) was initially an automotive service shop and was previously occupied by several other restaurants: Capt'n Jim's, Niyoshi's and Florida Pizza Kitchen, to name a few. That location closed in September 2008 after a decision by the building's landlord to sell the building. After some time off, Khalil reopened at the current location.

The Mediterranean Plus menu contains a number of vegetarian selections, and many entrees are served with homemade hummus and toasted pita.
