A very pleasant environment with a good choice of food at reasonable prices. The staff were very attentive & food tasty. It was nice to have the piano being played in the background 👍

The food was absolutely delicious! The waiter's were extremely friendly and professional. The live music gave the restaurant an amazing atmosphere. Delicious starters, mains, wine and coffee (soya milk was available which was great).

Mezzo Restaurant is a very fine place conveniently located within walking distance from the Deli Metro Station. The ambiance is engaging, the staff is helpful, kind, and elegant, and the food is really amazing. Last week we had two business occasions there and we didn't...regret it. Our waiter suggested "Kocsonya" for an appetizer and it was one of the best we ever had. The "Szalontüdô" tasted like my Mother's - who was an amazing chef- and the "Vadas Marhapofa" melted in our mouth. Everybody had an amazing time in this friendly place, and we did not want to leave. When the time had come, I turned to our server and said: Sorry, for keeping you guys so long." He looked at me back with a great smile and said: “It’s our pleasure”. I would recommend this place to all of my friends and business partners if they want to have a very fine lunch or dinner experience in the area.More

Visited Budapest for a very short time and had the opportunity to take my father out for a dinner. We booked the table in advance, but managed to get away from work commitments earlier, hence tried to bring reservation forward to an earlier time on...a Friday. Despite the place obviously being busy, the staff was very helpful, secured the table for the time we hoped to arrive and were very patient and courteous with us all through the meal. I needed a fair amount of explanation with the menu as some of the discription of Hungarian dishes were not quite clear what they actually were, but the lovely waiter explained all and not once I felt rushed. The food needless to say was excellent, nice portions and the music made it even more enjoyable (the volume being just right to keep up a conversation without raising your voice). Loved our meal here, and definitely will return at our next visit to lovely Budapest!More

The service is absolutely 5-star, from the welcome to the good-bye. The waiters are professional, quick, charming, even a dozen kids playing lying on the floor could not bother them - really amazing. The food is very good, good old classics with a few novelties,...and you don't have to wait too long for them after you ordered. Good old-fashioned vibe at the bar, too. Booking is recommended!More

Nice enough place. The right ambience. Pleasant surroundings with efficient service. And the food wasn't bad either - after all, that's why you out to eat. But then (as foreigners, and not understanding any of the language), to be overcharged (six drinks instead of three...and a self-included 'tip' - which I did not offer), then ridiculed (by sniggers) from the wait staff upon leaving, doesn't leave a good impression. May be a great place for locals, but foreigners beware.More

Dropped into this beautiful restaurant for lunch and had a wonderful meal. Service was great, dining room was inviting and the music was great and at a volume that didn’t overwhelm. Traditional food nicely prepared and presented. Would definitely eat there again.

One of our favorite restaurants in the country! We've been here several times, on several occasions, including our wedding. In the beginning, when we started the wedding planning we felt hopeless to find a place with good food, nice staff and not overpriced - and...we found Mezzo! The Manager and the Waiters are polite, kind, the place is spotless and the food.. we just LOVE the food! Absolute favorites are the, Nyírség-style soup with dumplings, Catfish stew with cream and cottage cheese pasta (!!!), Tender duck leg with cabbage pasta, Spicy pork medallions on sour cream ˝lángos˝ with Mangalitsa meat(!!!) and Floating island with toasted almonds. We are coming back at least once a year, but probably more. Oh, also, if there's a pianist playing, the whole restaurant is magical! It has this old times luxury feeling, I wanna grab one of those long cigarette holders and talk about Hemingway :)More

Wish I could give half starts; as this would be a solid 4.5. After having to reschedule twice and then adding people last minute - all of which the restaurant dealt with without a complaint! - we finally got to enjoy a brilliant meal last...week. We were lucky to be seated in the main dining room. The staff is great; very attentive without being overbearing. The wine selection is outstanding. The food - though the menu is not extensive - is hard to choose from as each dish sounds so good! Definitely recommend the duck liver pate as an appetizer. Though the gambas pil pil got two thumbs up as well. The chicken dishes did not disappoint; and neither did the Wiener schnitzel. Spare room for dessert as the chocolate dessert leaves you wanting more....More

Nicely decorated restaurant with soothing background music (this was Saturday lunch, so not live music). Attentive and relatively quick service. Good quality food, but not top-notch. Tuna was excellent, soup and kids menu schnitzel good, but not superb. Prices overall reasonable. Would recommend for a...lazy weekend lunch. 4.5 stars :)More

I visited this restaurant with my company first and loved it so went back twice since then. The interior design is really elegant and the live music not too loud and also not too faint, it perfectly gives a nice background for a conversation. The...food is great, my personal favorite is chocolate soufflé with raspberry. In the daily recommendations you can find typical, seasonal Hungarian dishes. The stuff is extremely nice and polite above all expectations. I would definitely recommend and will return myself as well. Be prepared that the tables are a bit close to each other so you might hear what other guests are discussing in the neighbor tables.More
