Thoroughly enjoyed our Meat Meze, the dishes were delicious, particularly the chicken souvlaki, meat balls, butter beans and tzatziki. The staff were friendly, helpful and efficient, plus the restaurant felt relaxed and comfortable. On our next visit we will make sure we ask for a gap between courses, as the food just kept on coming without a break.
A very good Greek restaurant, well worth trying.

Nice meal although menu was a bit limited for vegetarians if you don’t like cheese. Good service. Nice decor. We ate early and so not a lot of ambience but it was filling up fast as we left. Would probably return if in the area again.

We had a tasteful and plentiful meal with a variety of Greek dishes. All the food was well cooked and presented in appetizing dishes. The waiting staff where helpful, cheery and pleasant and showed patience when we could not decide what to order. My only criticism was that our allocated table was a little close to the next table with just a plastic screen in between.

Excellent selection of starters and tasty mains although serving with chips seemed unnecessary. Baklava was delicious and the portion sizes were so generous I had to take some baklava home for later :-)

Decided to have a meze. The meal was very rushed with no break between starters and main course. The pork souvlaki was tasty but very fatty.

The food was absolutely amazing, we enjoyed everything that we ordered. The service was a little slow to start with but fine once orders were taken. To top off a thoroughly enjoyable evening the waiter gave us a lift back to our caravan as we couldn't get a taxi. We would thoroughly recommend Meze for a meal.

Authentic Greek restaurant, even has a lovely cat! Characterful inside and out. As regular visitors to Greece we were delighted to learn of Meze in Ellesmere. Friends and the on-line reviews were very encouraging, alas, our lamb and chicken souvlakia on the meat Meze were extremely disappointing - sorry to say they smelt distinctly odd and were rubbery so we did not eat them. That said, the atmosphere, excellent service and the rest of the Meze was very good and for these reasons we shall return to eat there and support the restaurant. Hopefully we were just unlucky with that part of the meal. I hope this is constructive feedback - it’s certainly not meant to be negative.

The menu is quite limited but I think most people go for the trademark meze selection.
We had the meat option which was tasty and good. Don't be fooled by the small dishes because they keep coming and the third set is a big one (which you don't want to miss).
One comment - the service was quite quick and we weren't always ready for the additional items arriving. Our table was only just big enough!

Amazing food and environment as always. This has soon become our favourite and only place to eat after discovering some years ago.
If you like Greece, then you have to give Meze a visit - you will NOT be disappointed.

The outdoor seating area is a welcome addition and certainly adds to the mediterranean charm! Well done and thank you!!
