About Sherefe

Sherefe (pronounced "shedefay") means "Cheers!" In Turkish. Owning a restaurant was a dream for owner/chef, Mustafa Somar, for many years. In 2003, the dream became a reality, when he opened Sherefe Mediterranean Grill on Ramsey Street. After 10 years, we relocated to a much larger and more beautiful location in historic downtown Fayetteville, North Carolina where we now boast a two-story building, four dining rooms, and a full bar! Along with the location, the vision has also evolved...Mediterranean Grill was all about authenticity and while we remain authentic, our focus has become fresh, healthy, local and sustainable. While we don't cater to any particular dietary plan, the Mediterranean diet is a natural fit for gluten-free, vegetarian, vegan and even paleo as demonstrated at our cooking classes.


We proudly serve authentic, Greek, Turkish and Mediterranean cuisine. Many vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options. Fresh, local vegetables and seafood. Soups made gluten-free. Daily specials, lunch menu and a full bar. Belly dancers and live music on Fourth Friday and special occasions. Banquet facilities and off-site catering available.

"This was our first time and we will be back. The hummus had wonderful flavors. The special, Tuna Poke was delicious, the avocado was fresh, the tuna melted in your mouth and the Ponzo tied the dish perfectly together. The Alexander is gyro meat atop fried pita with a spicy tomato sauce and taziki drizzled over. The spice of the red sauce and the cool creaminess of the taziki compliments each other so well. We finished with the Greek Yogurt Cheesecake for dessert and it was a delightful end to a wonderful meal. Service was terrific, our server was attentive and extremely familiar with the menu. The environment was romantic and comfortable." -Google Review

"This place is a hidden gem in the city of Fayetteville. We had dinner there with a party of about 25, and EVERYTHING was hot, delicious, and served in a timely manner by the awesome waitstaff. Sherefe is definitely a place that we will return to." -Trip Advisor Review
