When we arrived in Berlin yesterday I was looking for some traditional food and in small portions. We stopped at Mesa because of the good reviews and the idea of tapas.
Two of us shared: the avocado lettuce salad (good some brown leads), the crispy chicken (cool presentation on a hanging stick but I do not eat chicken wings however my travelling partner does and said they good), goat cheese on apricot (good), sausage curry as it's a local tradition (I thought it was decent overall, couldn't finish it though) and we shared a vegetable ragout which was mainly turnips in a light white sauce. Overall the food was fine. I had a glass.of white wine and we had a pitcher of tap water. (The pitcher was very yellowed which was throwing us off and the water had a faint hint of fish??). The bill came to ?39 which we thought was reasonable. We tipped the waitress ?6 because we weren't sure about the tipping customs and she was very surprised and happy.

The food was very good but if you want to talk to each other - forget it. The acoustics is a catastrophe which is really a pity since the restaurant is nicely furnished and the service is very nice. But this homely atmosphere unfortunately does not help if you have to shout the entire evening.

Our hotel in Potsdamer Platz put us right in the heart of many restaurants with tantalizing menus. As we walked among them, on a beautiful summer evening, we chose mesa for its menu and atmosphere. It's a good thing the atmosphere was so pleasant because we were there for what seemed like forever.....it is almost difficult to recall the food because it took so long to get it. We should have realized there might be a problem because we even had to ask for service from the beginning of our evening there. Actually, the food was OK, and the wine was very good, but we all thought the restaurant pretty much shot itself in the foot with such lousy service. It simply isn't good enough for the time required to eat there, and with all the other restaurants in and around the plaza, I would definitely select another one.

Very few staff in evidence and those that were appeared incredibly young. Of five tapas dishes ordered, one was wrong and one didn't turn up at all. So 6/10.

Returned a second time because we enjoyed the first time so much. Very good food , fresh, served very nicely.
The mozzarella lettuce salad is superb and enjoyed the filet and lambchops in the main courses .
Dessert wasn't that special .
Prices are very fair for what you get .
All over - very nice restaurant and great value for the money
