Pre/post Theatre
Leave the bustle of London’s ‘theatreland’ behind you for the buzz and charm of the Middle East! Maison du Mezzé is the Capital’s best Middle-East dining experience, offering authentic Lebanese-inspired brunch, lunch and dinner dishes with the warmest hospitality. All dishes are freshly prepared daily in the restaurant kitchen using the finest seasonal produce and, of course, spices and herbs from our Middle East heartland. The interior is set over two floors and all part of the Middle-East experience with Arabian carpets and artwork, gilded ceiling and a mix of banquette and booth-style seating separated by ferns and trailing plants. The large covered outdoor terrace beckons in finer weather where you can also enjoy a Shisha in true Middle-East style.

Please be aware that smoking is allowed on all outside tables, this is both cigarettes and the traditional pipes. This isn't clear on the website and meant when I arrived despite asking for an outside table I needed to go inside. I also was within the time limit for the pre theatre supper menu, yet this was not offered. Only the ala Carte menu, I spent £100 on dinner and would say the food was not as good as comptoir libinese where dinner was 70. The staff however were efficient, friendly and attentive

Loved the atmosphere and decor of this restaurant and much of our food was good but unfortunately my daughter’s steak was overdone and chewy. It was tasty though and we were in a bit of a rush so didn’t try sending it back - when I did mention it to the waiter he didn’t seem particularly interested. Wouldn’t stop me from going back though as overall we enjoyed the experience. Not cheap but for the location it wasn’t crazy money.

I think the attraction of this place is sitting outside. Inside it is a bit uninspiring. The food was OK. Mix grill a bit greasy. The place is fine but because it is in a prime location it's not value for money for London residents.

It was practical for the theatre and the food was nice. Service was quick but unceremonious. The door was wide open and it was cold inside which prevented us from staying for dessert.

Buzzy and lively downstairs, but an oasis of calm upstairs this is a great destination for a treasure trove of mezze. Juicy chunks of delicious meat or delicately flavoured veggie options, it was all sublime and beautifully presented. Service is quick, the staff smiley and helpful. To p spit.

Had a fabulous meal. We asked for advice as we were not familiar with the menu. We were suggested a variety of starters and mains and went with the suggestions. Couldn’t fault any aspect of it except that it would have been nice to be given ice with the water. Such a minor detail. The service was attentive and friendly without being invasive, the food tasted wonderful, there was a great selection of vegetarian options and the mint tea and Umm Ali dessert rounded the meal off perfectly. We will definitely be back next time we are in London.

Went with my husband and his family for my mother-in-law’s 60th birthday. We had a fabulous time - staff made us feel incredibly welcome and were more than happy to move us to a table away from the door where it was warmer and a bit quieter. Food was delicious and they even sang happy birthday and brought out her pudding with a candle in it! Great experience all round!

Had a nice mezze lunch before the theatre on Saturday - the restaurant was an oasis of calm compared to the busy Square outside. Service was great - waiter even turned the music down without us even asking! Mixed hot mezzo were nice but not really that warm. Could've been more heated. The aubergine dip and baby aubergines were lovely. Portions are good but prices have gone up considerably since we were here last. Good reliable place but a tad pricey.

I went for my birthday celebration, as is common the restaurant give you a cake as cortesey for singing for you birthday but in this occasion the restaurant wanted to charge it. maybe is rules for them but I didn't like that because I didn't feel special in my day and I won't celebrate other special day there again.

We had a lovely meal. I chose the set menu, which I enjoyed. My sister and daughter the al a carte. All good value with a good varied menu. The food was beautifully served in lovely colourful china, as well as tasting good. The waiters very attentive and friendly. We loved the look of the place too. All comfortable seats, cushions and lighting. Wll definitely return with friends and family... highly recommend. Thank you.

We had a lovely waiter serving and his supervisor being attentive which is good, knowing the food portions and quality was really worth the price for the set menu and had a lovely time although the receptionist could be more attentive as i arrived slightly later than my fren who was already sitting inside. Without checking the bookings, I was just told there is no such bookings with two poker face from the receptionist who was more interested with the singing and basking of the entertainer outside.
Other than that, nice decor inside and great food and lovely service. Will come back again.

Booked a pre theatre meal. Awful service and no time to eat sweet course despite arriving at 6:30 and leaving at 8:20pm. Would not recommend as we felt poor value at £19.95 per meal ☹️

Repas excellent mais trop copieux à notre goût.
Pour ma fille et moi, nous n’avons pas pu tout finir, et donc gaspillé.
Tarif correct pour les mets proposés.
Un très bon thé à la menthe

I had made a reservation on OpenTable and had requested outdoor seating on the app. When I got there the hostess told me that they did not except reservations for outdoor seating. I told her that OpenTable had given me the option and I had chosen it. She ended up splitting a table of four for me so I could sit out there. I didn’t realize that it was also a hookah bar, and once I had ordered my food I was inundated with the smell of sweet smoke. If you are sensitive to this kind of thing then you may want to avoid the outdoor patio. I didn’t go inside so I don’t know if they also smoked inside. My food was very good and came very quickly. I wish I hadn’t been dining alone so that I could’ve tried more food because everything I saw coming out looked and smelled very good. The bread was amazing. I don’t usually eat bread and I almost turned it away when they put the basket down, but once I saw it I knew I had to have it :)

The service from start to finish was friendly and helpful without being overwhelming. We had a selection of hot and cold mezze that was delicious and beautifully presented and I wish I could have sampled them all but that will need to wait for my next visit. For somebody who loves Lebanese food as much as I do it was an amazing treat.
