Cocktails are good, service friendly and food isn’t too expensive. 45 min wait between starters and main which wasn’t ideal. Couple of us had food slightly over cooked which is probably due to the long wait in between courses.

Staff were lovely and eve courteous to each other. Lovely ambience. Starters were lovely, very tasty. Only down side was not enough time gap from having starters to the mains arriving even though we asked for some rest period. Music was good but did get too loud at times so it was hard to hear one another. Definately return

Place was overcrowded considering covid rules, probably should of walked back out in hindsight.
Took nearly half an hour to get a drink but worst aspect of evening was constant techno music playing in background, could hardly make conversation.
Apparently it is policy of new management to blast away at your ears
Will not be booking this restaurant again.

Lovely restaurant & very friendly staff. My only complaint was having to wait nearly 2hrs for our meal, especially as with had 7yr old with us.
My advice is get your meal ordered at same time as you order your drinks.
Restaurant was very busy the night we went. My meal beautifully cooked.

Very slow drinks service. I had to ask for one drink three times and never got the coffee i asked for. Had to send our mains back as we were still eating our starter (we hadnt asked for our next course) We then watched our food get put back on the grill for 20 minutes and replated when we were ready for our main. So the food wasnt fresh. Dining out is all about an experience, it isnt a race!! Beautiful restaurant and good food. Just manic service.

Food was delicious and good value. We were sat upstairs (just by the top of the stairs) and the tables were spaced apart well.

Our first meal out after relaxation of restrictions an we chose to go back to Mevan. The food was outstanding, slightly different than we have had previously at the restaurant (thye might have had a menu update?), I had the mixed grill and the lamb chop and lamb shish were absolutely delicious. The salad seemed better than the one I have had there previously. The only slight issue was the slowness of service towards the end of the meal - however, it was the first Saturday night of being open after lockdown so slight niggles are understandable. Will definitely be back!

Awful service if you’re upstairs. 2 hours for a main meal to arrive. Always been excellent downstairs under the watchful eye of management but upstairs you are forgotten. Put me off the place when the food is excellent but the service was shockingly poor

We have used Mevan many times before and due to the lockdown being announced we decided to book a table.

Normally I would be happy to sit at normal distance from others but I felt the seating area upstairs was poorly spaced and the table next to us had three people who were clearly there just to drink as they ordered no food and were constantly flouting the rules with no masks etc...

Overall the food was great but the service was poor and the proximity of people was wrong on many levels.

New menu is still a winner with me, customer service is great, always accommodating, food portions are big so make sure you are hungry!
The new bread is so nice!
I'll be back soon hopefully with more friends when we are allowed.

We had a really nice meal but we think it's a little expensive. We had the platter for 2/3 people and 3 drinks each. But overall a really nice evening.
