On a spur of the moment day out to Mersery I trawled the net to find a restaurant. The sound of Mehalahs appealed to me although I had no idea what to expect. On route I rang to book.
The restaurant is set back off the main road and quite easy missed so drive slowly. There is ample parking on the forcourt and in the adjacent free car park. We received a warm welcome. The decoration is rather mixed, very cosy and friendly and children are obvoisly welcome. If you wish there is a family seating area with a good supply of toys and books. It reminded me of Italy where there is a healthy attitude toward children in restaurants.The menu is varied ranging from sandwiches, made from cut fresh bread to the Daily Specials. Fish seems to be the speciality but there was also pidgeon breast and beef in red wine that day. We started with squid and pan fried prawns. For our main course my husband had lobster and I had sardines. We finished with the cheese board. I had a glass of wine produced at the local vinyard and my husband had a local beer. The whole meal was very well presented, very well cooked and of good quality produce. We paid under £45.
Every year we travel to the Ligurian coast of Italy to enjoy fresh fish. This meal was on par with those expereiences.
The staff were friendly and no request seem a problem.
We certainly reccomend you give this restaurant a try. We will certainly go back.
