“Good food and good value”
Reviewed 12 February 2014

Dined here last friday night, I have to say the food was fresh and very tasty and the staff very friendly and helpful. We hadn't a clue what to order so we took a tasting platter for two which had about 6 starters and 2 main courses. It came with plenty of bread, rice and vegetables. I t was very tasty indeed. The atmosphere was relaxed and unhurried even though it appeared to be a busy friday night.
We paid a liitle over 70euro which included bottle of wine, so not bad at all.

“Gorgeous food & great value”
Reviewed 11 February 2014 via mobile

I'm a big Al Mezza fan & my most recent visit didn't disappoint. The food was absolutely delicious, portions generous & lovely atmosphere. The only downside was it was really busy & service was poor at the beginning. Once the starters came out it was fine but they definitely needed another waiter/waitress on. Looking forward to going back already!

“Good food spoiled by musty atmosphere. ”
Reviewed 7 February 2014 via mobile

Got a good taste for Lebanese food here with three colleagues. We order to sharing meals (each for 2) and got stuck in with a couple of bottles of house red (Italian) which was very pleasant. 150 Euros all in didn't seem too bad. The only problem was that the place smelled very damp as you walked in and the musty smell remained throughout the evening. Possibly because the heating didn't seem to be working.

“Cosy restaurant with good food”
Reviewed 20 January 2014

Fairly quiet the Thurs night we were there so not a great atmosphere however there is a nice homely sense to the place and the service is friendly and attentive without being invasive. Food was good but not great with the desserts proving the highlight. Went with a menu pages voucher so great value but prices are reasonable anyway so recommend.

“Fantastic find”
Reviewed 15 January 2014

In an otherwise bleak visit to Athlone, our meal and experience at Al Mezza was fantastic.

The food was delicious, fresh and plentiful. Yummmmmm!

The service was excellent. Lovely staff. Thank you!

The restaurant itself is really lovely too. It's in an old house and the staircase up to the toilets is beautiful...

Definitely recommend this restaurant. Your taste buds will thank you.
