Feta Mediterranean Cuisine serving up classic dishes in fine dining setting

Feta Mediterranean Cuisine is one of the many restaurants in downtown Ocala that has carved out a niche for itself with a classic slate of offerings.

Located at 306 SW Broadway Street, the restaurant is sandwiched between T Mobile and Bubble Bar, the boba tea shop that opened last summer. The two-story building is filled with rustic decorations and enough seating to accommodate large crowds.
