We got a take away last night and went with one of the Mezza menus. It was for two people and I ordered 2 portions of chips to bulk it out as there were 3 of us, and a toddler. There was plenty of food for us all and it was delicious! This was only my second time to have... More

I've been to Al Mezza a few times & always meant to do a review, most recently I had a wonderful evening therr with a group of friends, the menu is great with something to please every taste, we each tried a different dish, and none of us were disappointed, the food was really tasty and portions as always are...

We had a two course evening meal here at the end of January. Going by the majority of the reviews on here, we really expected the food to be more impressive than it was. I had a beef and tomato casserole main; my partner, a meatballs main. We found the tomato sauce to be quite bland. I am not someone... More

Hi Fmp, I just wanted to take a few seconds of your time and thank you for your custom, and also to point out one thing; while all the points in your review are upsetting to read, I am most disappointed with the fact that you failed to raise any of them at the time. Portion too small? no problem... More

We nearly missed this restaurant as it is not right in the middle of town, but were so glad that we found it. The food was excellent, we had one of the set mezzes and everything went together really well. The waitress was very friendly and extremely knowledgeable about the food. The interior is really charming and we were trying... More

My partner and I have been meaning to visit this restaurant for some time. I am only sorry that it took us so long. It's a small restaurant with a good atmosphere. The waiter was friendly and knew what he was doing, there was no rushing us to order, etc. I had the Beef Stew and spiced potatoes with chilli... More

We decided to visit Al Mezza on a Saturday night for some exotic lebanese food. Unfortunately that was not the case... The portions were tiny and the food was extremely blant and spicy if that can be ever achieved.. All of our dishes felt like they were microwaved frozen meals with a bit of seasoning on top... In general the... More

Hi Mia, thanks for your review, even though it was far from positive. I am the chef for the restaurant and would just like to take a moment to respond to some of your points; while as a chef I appreciate that not everyone has the same palate, your claim that the food was "bland and spicy" is vague and...

We enjoyed lamb, chicken and prawn with lots of veggie dips and other delights. All were reasonable in price and super tasty. The place was cosy even though quiet and service was excellent.It felt more like the eastern Med than midlands Athlone. This restaurant is well worth checking out - maybe leave the cocoon of the hotel restaurant and seek... More
