“Better value elsewhere”
Reviewed September 30, 2013

I was recommended Mesh but was a bit disappointed, perhaps from high expectations. Buffet style desserts and entrees were very nice but main was extremely average, dry chicken, cold steak. Nothing to rave about. 3 drinks included on a Friday night and friendly service, plus good live music (covers). I wouldn't come back though, if you like desserts and choice then maybe it's for you but there are better places to eat in Melbourne for the same price. If I had to go back I would load up on the defrosted prawn entrees and have them as mains for the night.

“Great value for money”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

Have been here numerous times in 2013 on a Sunday for the full buffet and free flowing champagne. I can not fault it at all. It was great value for money and food choices were endless. Make sure you book because I have twice been turned away for not having a booking.

“Something for everyone”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

We have only go to Mesh on Friday's or Sunday and both were fantastic value. Friday you have a choice of 3 dishes Meat/Fish and then help yourself to buffet seafood/salad & dessert. Sunday is full on buffet great food excellent staff and Friday includes 3 glasses of wine/beer or soft drink and Sunday is champagne hello for $55 if you love seafood and champagne get down there!!The seafood is always very fresh and tasty and the desserts "OMG" not only the variety but presentation is great. The ice cream gotta try them my fav. Also highly recommend for a family bday or get together they have bday cakes to order.

“Small servings, trendy, but average”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Dishes are basic and could be larger if you are hungry. Drinks are expensive, and is the case with many new places - the hard surfaces all around make this place noisy when its busy.

“I cannot commend Mesh enough!”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

I went to Mesh to celebrate a family birthday and I cannot speak highly enough of the restaurant! I am a vegetarian and they catered so well to this requirement - in addition to the selection of salads and vegetables available in the buffet, they also made me a separate entree and main meal. Also, the deserts looked amazing (just about anything you could ask for - a chocolate fountain, DIY cold-rock style icecream, cake, cheesecake, mousse etc) but unfortunately I was too full to try any of it. I'll make sure I save some space in my tummy next time :) For $50 a head including a meal and drinks, Mesh is definitely worth a shot!
