“Good Mexican in Colorful Florentine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2013

While strolling the lively streets of Florentine, ready to sit down for a beer, this open bar looked most inviting. The street stools were perfect to enjoy the afternoon breeze over a San Miguel beer. A glimpse on the menu's 'street food' section and Mezcal's lovely waitress were helpful in convincing us we should also eat!

The tostadas and tacos were not bad. The chmichanga was even better. I'm not a huge fan of Mexican food, but it's nice every now and then and turned out to be perfect for this afternoon. Don't expect much - it is what is is and it's good. Florentine's atmosphere did all the rest.

“Cheap and Cheerful Tex-Mex In The Heart of Florentine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

Cheap and Cheerful Tex-Mex In The Heart of Florentine. Nice simple fresh food in a beautiful setting. However, their signature Margarita, that everybody at the bar seemed to be enjoying isn't cheap: 12$!=45NIS. Be sure to make a reservation on weekends. Place is packed with tourist, but still a lot of fun.
(ATTENTION TRIPADVISOR WEBMASTER: RESTAURANT'S NAME MISSPELLED. SHOULD BE: Mezcal Mexican restaurant )

“Tastiest Mexican in the middle east and a great spot for drinks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 6, 2013

I've loved Mezcal for several years now, and it only continues to get better and better. They have a large menu that can satisfy any diners needs. Choose from street food or larger meals and accompany them with one of the delicious cocktails. My favorite is the Bloody Maria (similar to a Bloody Mary but tequila based) but the Margherita and Chili Martini are also great choices. My favorites on the menu are the tostadas - both vegeterian and ceviche, chimichangas and churros. Almost everything is made fresh on the spot and you can really taste it!

“Great atmosphere and tasty, authentic Mexican chow and drinks”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2012

Mezcal is one of the few places in Israel where you can get really tasty, classic Mexican food like chimichanga, enchiladas, tortillas and more. Since its a bar, they also offer a large selection of Mexican tequilas, margaritas and beer. Most weekends they have live music.

The atmosphere is very cool. Mezcal is located in Florentine, a 'hip' Tel Aviv neighborhood in transition from blue-collar to students, young artists some business people.
