Lovely restaurant with great atmosphere especially when the belly dancer started dancing! The food was beautiful....my husband and I both had tagine, I had chicken and apricot which was gorgeous and the cous cous was so fluffy. My husband had lamb and garlic tagine and the lamb was so tender it just melted in the mouth. The only let down... More

Booked at the last minute on a Saturday night having been very disappointed with where we had booked. Very helpfully Danielle squeezed us in. What a treat we had, a very friendly welcome, cocktails and the most delicious food. Traditional tagines with melt in the mouth lamb and a mixed grill with all the accompaniments. Very authentic and very generous... More

They were busy but we waited 40 minutes to get a drink and had to ask three times, we almost walked out. We felt actively ignored by the staff (after waving at them many times). The food took ages to come but it was excellent when it did arrive. We had a few different tagines and they were all great,... More

I have been a regular to Mezza Luna since 2007 and this is by far one of the best restaurants in Wales, the ambience & tables with candles are the perfect start to set the mood and then you're greeted by warm, helpful and smiling staff – Anna & Team. The menu is great and offers a wide variety of... More

This is a good quality restaurant with a top hygiene rating awarded by the council. They have a good selection of the Lebanese classics and the portions are generous. This sort of food, on the one hand, is quite healthy because many items are grilled and some nice salads are available. However, the amount of oil used in the dishes,... More

I love Lebanese food but this was incredible! Best food we've had in ages. The hummus is so smooth! The mixed main gives you a bit of a taste of everything. Try not to overdo it as the portions are a good size and you'll want to eat everything but you won't have room.

The food in here was totally amazing. I had a chicken & garlic dish with rosemary potatoes which was the best meal I have had in along time. The atmosphere was really good - there was a belly dancer who was really friendly - got people up dancing but not pushy if you didnt want to. The service was really... More
