“Meshino maintains excellence!”
Reviewed 25 November 2013

I've been eating at Meshino since it opened and they still do the best Eggs Benedict in town - beautiful yellow eggs, perfectly crispy bacon, wilted spinach (not soggy) and their own wonderfully light Hollandaise sauce. Bravo!

“Nice place to have a quiet evening with friends”
Reviewed 1 February 2013

The food was very good, I had a Moroccan dish which was very tasty and well presented. The service was very good and the noise in the main part was low.

“Expensive for average food”
Reviewed 13 September 2012

Just went there for tea. $22 for most mains, which is really too much for what we got. Menu promises a lot but my veal-pistachio sausages were pretty bland and only veg was scolloped potatoes. Expected some greens ...?
Overall a disapointing meal for the cost.
Good service from attentive and friendly waiting staff

“Small menu and small portions for dinner but great for brunch!”
Reviewed 11 May 2012 via mobile

We have eaten here several times for brunch and for an evening meal as it is relative local. The first time we went for dinner we were impressed. Although the bistro was busy, our food was well cooked and we thought it was good value. Each time we have been since then we have been less and less impressed to the stage where we have decided we are not going to go back. The portions are small, the prices have increased and there was no atmosphere at all.

Having said that about dinner, we will be back for brunch as it is consistently good and is better value for money.
