As locals we dropped in without checking in advance. Ordered fish of the day and lobster which was a great success. With white wine and beer at Happy Hour half price. The service was attentive and just perfect. We will definitely add Meze to our list of favorites:)

Stopped in on our first night found us a table quickly. Staff very attentive and polite. We shared the 5 dish Meze which was just enough for 2 (1 if you have big appetite).

Meze is a gem, an extraordinary restaurant in Reykjavik. The service is good, sometimes excellent, but the food... ah, the food! We went twice and had the salmon and the shish chicken, ice-cream dessert, and cocktails. Simply superb. No, I really mean it.

Dropped in while walking around Reykjavik. No reservation. Staff were happy to accommodate us. Had a cheese plate for starters then spicy lamb rolls and moussaka followed by white chocolate cheesecake and Irish coffee. DELICIOUS.

We hadn't reserved a table but were quickly shown to a table and ordered. Shared a Cheese starter, which was just enough for a starter, and then both had Chicken Shish Kebab. There were 3 skewers of chicken, rice and salad, and was very tasty. Service quick and efficient.

We stopped here for a quick bite before walking to the harbour. A busy and cosy little restaurant with friendly and happy staff. Lovely food and a quick service. Really like the Swiss mocha's, especially on a cold and snowy day.

The restaurant is comfortable, service excellent and offer a menu of many Italian dishes at reasonable price in Iceland. The 2 daily promotion specials at 2490kr is good value for money considering the quality of food and services. On 1st visit we had Catch of the day and a today's special (chicken) and it was truly delicious. Our second visit... More

Really lovely food and a pleasant environment. Pricey but this seems typical for Reykjavik. Recommend the Musakka!
