Mezza is conveniently located near Mystic Seaport and Downtown Mystic. Vivian,one of the owners is warm and welcoming to her guests as are the servers. Their mezza platter is a good way to sample some of the different types of food. I have so many favorites here. The family's recipe of Lala chicken brought from Lebanon is one of them.

We saw this restaurant listed on TripAdvisor and thought Mediterranean cuisine sounded good. We walked in and the music, decor and waitresses' dress all worked together to create an atmosphere. We sat and looked at the menu and saw a lot of familiar dishes--hummus, falafel, grape leaves, tabouleh--all things my husband grew up eating. When our kids asked to start... More

We stopped here on our way back from a Boston college tour. What a gem of a place! Great food, ultra-helpful and friendly staff. We enjoyed all our food, and the desserts were delish. We will definitely come back when we stay longer in Mystic!

Guessing the owners wisely changed the name to better reflect the dining experience they offer. It's a richly designed interior that the outside doesn't reflect. We started with the Mezza sampler w/ an assortment of 5 Lebanese apps-perfect to share for two. I had 1/2 Lala chicken, their specialty. It was nicely herbed, a generous portion of chicken and came... More

Just had our second lunch at Mezza. Both meals were very good, and very authentic Middle Eastern cuisine. The food is freshly prepared, and seasoned with great care and balance. The wait staff was helpful and cordial. We met one of the owners - great guy who takes real pride in this family owned restaurant. Mezza gets added to our... More

My friend and I split two falafel wraps, the Fiery Falafel and the Richard Special. Both were so delicious. The waitress was super nice and attentive. We arrived at 11:40 to an empty place but at 12 it was very busy so plan ahead if you want to have lunch.

Mezza! Can't say enough about this wonderful restaurant. Immediately you feel like part of the family as the knowledgeable waitstaff recommend the best on the menu based on your input. The moussaka is greatest anywhere and just melts in your mouth. Ask for the fiery falafel special it's amazing. The owner Vivian is ever present with her warm smile and... More
