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.

One of the nicest restaurants in Athlone and we only just discovered it! Falafels are just so so good, everything really tasty, staff super nice and attentive, lovely feel to the restaurant, wooden floors and stone walls and candles, just gorgeous. Highly recommend

What a lovely peaceful little place. Arrived just before closing on a wet Sunday evening l. We received a warm welcome. The atmosphere is gentle and quiet, the lighting and music were low. The menu is large and varied and the food is delicious.

Great spot. Would definitely revisit. Dropped one star because the falafel main course was just four falafels (which were delicious) but just with a very small salad on the side. Vegan wine option and lots of vegan food options. Thanks too to charmIng and helpful...staff.More

While the food was delicious the sizing was very disappointing. My meal didn't fill a side plate when we brought it home . The rice that we ordered only was half full

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

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
