Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Firstly, we had no reservation. The staff who were under pressure with a full restaurant were brilliant. Asked us to wait 5 minutes and they could accommodate us. What a hidden gem!!! From the starter/mains and devine desert, what can i say but simply fantastic....My partner and I constantly sampled each others dishes because they looked and tasted fantastic. The staff were attentive and helpful. The place and decor are tasteful and old worldly. It can be a little cramped but not overbearing. All in all, i would definitely recommend this spot! I will definitely be going back!More

We are regulars of this restaurant for years. Food is always served promptly hot and very tasty. It is my favourite restaurant in Athlone. Staff are always friendly and professional, the wine is also good!

Had dinner here with friends . Was very impressed . Had never tried Lebanese food before and the waitress recommended a taster menu . She explained all the courses to us. The food was very tasty with lovely natural flavours . We had enough food...but didn’t feel over full . The service was very good too. Really enjoyed this experienceMore

We have a nice meal in Al Mezza, the food was very tasty. However, the portion size of the main courses are quite small, we did not feel full after it, despite sharing a starter between us also. Also, the menu prices in the restaurant...are higher that those advertised on their on line menu, for both food and drinks.More

We are returning customers here for as long as I can remember, food us always amazing! Very healthy dishes with great flavour everytime. In all my years coming here, we have never once received a charge for tap water as stated by another reviewer. Obviously...a mistake on their behalf. Would be interested in seeing their receipt! Milad and all staff so friendly and professional..More

Fish overcooked, dry and bland. Just no flavour or seasoning. Starters are good but I couldn’t describe this as anything but a disappointment. With so many other good restaurants within a few minutes walk, I see no reason to choose Al Mezza

The food here is very tasty and authentic, served in a lovely, friendly atmosphere. I had the Al Jabel Mezza (for two) which gives you a taste of everything. I was alone, so half was boxed up for me to take away. I recommend highly...and will be back when I'm next in Athlone.More

Wow, what an amazing welcome and beautiful evening we had. We left the choice completely in Milad’s hands. We had a lovely bottle of Lebanese full bodied wine and mezzanine plates to share, completely adapted for me (I’m coeliac) Such good value and wonderfully flavoured...food. It’s a must visit I would highly recommendMore
