“Delicious food. Mexican with a twist”
Reviewed March 11, 2013 via mobile

I dined on the special mushroom soft tacos per advice from server. It sounded strange but was delicious! The atmosphere was pleasant with a bar and nice outdoor seating. My companion had eaten there several times and said it was always very good. Our food arrived at light speed .

“Great food and great atmosphere”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

I dined here February 2013 with some colleagues from work for a team meal as we fancied trying some mexican food and Mez had been recommended. It turned out to be a great choice with some great food, and an atmosphere that meant we didn't need to shout to hear each other :-)

Overall the food was really good and everyone enjoyed what they ordered. The only letdown was the service, which seemed somewhat slow at times. Other than the service everything was good and a great evening was had.

I would recommend anyone in the area visits Mez if they like mexican (or fancies trying something new). I would suggest booking in advance as they get full pretty quick.

“Great food!”
Reviewed January 30, 2013

If you like Mexican food you will love this slightly upscale restaurant. While Mez is not your typical Mexican restaurant they do have some of your traditional favorites like fajitas, enchiladas, etc. Nice menu selection.

“Central RTP location, Consistently Good”
Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have lunched here several times with small to medium sized groups (<15) of friends or business colleagues in the last 3 years and have been pleased with the menu and service and don't hesitate to suggest it when the location is convenient. I like the freshness of the guac and once enjoyed a tart fresh marguerita after work but have limited experience with the bar. The portions are more than enough and when I take the leftovers home I actually eat them! We had a birthday celebration this January and were treated to complimentary Dulce de Leche - delicious.
