This meal was not very enjoyable for me. We had a selection of different meze. The grilled calamari, pork meatballs and sausage was nice. The lamb cutlet and souvlaki were overcooked and tough. The quail was undercooked and bloody. The staff were friendly and helpful. Highchairs available. Limited alcohol beverage selection.

My main concern about this little, pretty restaurant is the price. We actually had a very lovely dinner, with very tasty food (meat most of all) but what concerned me was the 181$ dollars of the final bill (and we brought our own wine). That being the case, I have not heart to recommend this place (in the end, greek... More

We were a group of 4 having a Saturday night dinner. We shared a seafood meze and a meze with a mix of chicken and lamb which was ample for all of us. We all had coffee and desert. Food was fantastic and we brought our own champagne. Sat out on the back veranda and had a great night.

My husband and I are regular customers at Kafe Meze, both by ourselves and with family. We cannot fault the food and service. We have thoroughly enjoyed every meal we've had there - from lunches to dinners, and platters - it's all good. Can highly recommend.

We arrived at Kafe Meze and were delighted to find a cool air-conditioned dining room for lunch on a hot Wednesday. The waitress arrived quickly with chilled table water and menus. She happily answered some questions about the menu from my wife and was very pleasant at all times. Our meals arrived within an acceptable time and were enjoyable. There... More

We had a delicious shared seafood platter and plate of chargrilled octopus on a hot Saturday night recently. We arrived early but it was cool sitting under the fans on the back deck. The service was excellent and we had our meal with plenty of time to get to QPAC for a show. The platter was huge and we didn't... More

Having just dropped in for a good meal, simple open atmosphere and attentive service I'm surprised by some reviews. A good place for authentic Greek fare.

Dined at Kafe Meze a few weeks ago. Lovely atmosphere, friendly staff and the food was delicious. A large party was nearby and their kids were unruly...such a shame when parents don't give a hoot about other diners & expect the staff to heard their ill mannered offspring to the tables to feed them. Apart from that little episode, all... More

We visited on a Wednesday evening with only a few tables occupied. The service was friendly and efficient. Our meals arrived promptly and well presented and tasted great. The meze plares to share between two are great value.
