“Good but could be better...”
Reviewed February 1, 2014 via mobile

We tried this on a whim as we had heard good things. Think a more Mediterranean version of marche. The results were very mixed: the staff seemed pretty clueless and disinterested, and while there were many mouthwatering menus written over many of the stalls, in truth much appeared to have been discontinued which was sad... so the selection was limited (and I felt this was rather cheeky). However, the soup was pretty good and the lamb kebab was excellent - but not enough overall to have me rushing back.

“Great NYE dinner place!”
Reviewed January 10, 2014

We didn't have any plans for NYE dinner and happened to this restaurant. We were both happy with our meals. Tasted great, presentation was great, my wife's meal was warm, but mine was hot.
Lots of choices for apps, mains and desserts. We both ended taking the dinner specials for the night as it was featured.
Will be on the look out for others of these when I'm traveling.

“Good selection of Med-inspired food”
Reviewed December 23, 2013

For those who are familiar with the concept and ambience of Marche will find a host of similarities with Medzs. It's location on Orchard Rd in the mall adjacent to the one where Marche is located makes it a great option when the waiting lines to get into Marche are really long (usually during weekend lunch/ dinner).

Medzs has a good salad bar and selection of French, greek, Spanish, Moroccan, Italian, food. Their newer outlet located at Millennia Walk also has some great weekday lunch specials.

A few things that stand out for me at Medzs is the service (all the staff are really helpful, except for the chefs who seem perpetually grumpy), although they don't take it out on the food which is a good thing. The vast cuisine/ menu means there are a number of options for vegetarians which is always good and you can also request the staff to make certain dishes vege!

These are my favourites - salad bar, pizza (fantastic thin crust) and a perfect balance of cheese and toppings, paella, rosti and the tajine!

They could definitely improve on the price of the drinks (non-alcoholic). A fresh juice is like S$6 which is a bit ludicrous. But they do have an amazing selection of beer from all over the world, which is always a good option at 4pm on a Monday.

“The mix is not that Mediterranean”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

It is a mixed offer restaurant, copy of the Marche model, somehow it feels of a similar quality to Marche and somehow low on the scale. This is a place you go for a very informs quick dinner on a very normal day, because the restaurant is of a family type but without the charm of other family restaurants.
Food is just ok, Un-impressive. For this kind of restaurants you can just see how what you would order looks like but this is not guarantee that the taste would be to your liking,... I am not. Huge fan of this kind of place because the overall quality of food is not really there.

“Fun Place To Eat, Some Delicious Food”
Reviewed October 5, 2013

Overall, I am inspired by this outlet.

The layout of the Mediterranean "regional stalls", the various distinctive seating sections, the conducive mood lighting, and that certain buzz of liveliness all around. All very pleasing to me.

The varieties of food on offer is appealing. As many dishes are only cooked when ordered, not all dishes are displayed. My eyes were constantly enticed as different cooked dishes surface from the various stalls waiting for "pick up". The outlet concept is self service, you get a "time buzzer" and a receipt after placing your order. When your buzzer flashes and vibrates, that is time for you to pick up your order from your stall so you do not need to hang around waiting and watching.

I particularly enjoyed dishes from the fresh seafood section and the meat skewers with savoury rice. Soup tasted fresh and wholesome too.

Self service does not appeal to everyone, particularly when eating alone .. the anxiety of leaving one's bag at the table whilst retrieving a food order from the other end of the outlet .. you picture the logistics (haha).
