“Metze or bust!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2014

Tried the Cretan metze selection, 29 euros for two. Amazing amount of good quality food. Easily have fed three or more! Local wine at 9.50 euros a bottle. Chris and Alex are very entertaining and with their so nib the kitchen very much family run!

“Great variety and friendly owners!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

We visited Mezes on our first night, as it was very local to our hotel and was one of the only restaurants open so early in the season. We were greeted by Christine, who is lovely, very chatty and funny. She was really helpful with the local area as well as talking us through the menu.

We went for the traditional Mezes, which includes three courses of various foods - it starts with warm bread and various dips. The potato salad I thought was a strange addition but it wasn't like english potato salad; it was delicious!! It was followed by stuffed vine leaves, sausages, fried mushrooms, chicken mezes style and pork with wine and onions.. all absolutely lovely. We were so impressed and it was varied enough to please me (always wanting to try new, local food) and my boyfriend (stays firmly in his comfort zone). The quality was excellent, and they brought us the next course whenever we wanted it. We took a break between the main and our dessert and did not feel pressured or hurried at all.

The restaurant is beautifully decorated too and both Christine and Alex are so welcoming.

We went back again three days later and tried meals from the normal menu. I has the chicken mezes again which was slightly different to the one we got in the set menu but it was delicious. I will say if you don't like mushrooms, ask for everything without because they are in most dishes. Luckily, I love them which just added to my delight.

Definitely give this place a go!!

“YUM!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Wonderful food, lovely people, and service that was never in a rush to shove you out the door. It's not too often a waitress says she'll wait a bit so you can relax, digest a bit, and steady yourself for the next wave of deliciousness.
