Excellent food and brilliant atmosphere. Perfect for a fun evening, recommend the lamb meatballs to start and the mix grill sharer for the main course.

Mezza Luna was recommended by a friend and we weren't disappointed. We were 25 minutes early for our table but that didn't phase them at all and we were given a warm welcome. The staff were very friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious and the flavours were simply stunning. The belly dancer was amazing and very entertaining. There was only one problem, none of us could manage a dessert. We will definitely return.

I saw that Mezza Luna had been awarded best kebab house in Wales for 2016, and decided to visit with friends. Did not disappoint, we had the mixed meat sharing platter for our main meal. It was delicious, each meat was cooked to perfection and each had a distinct taste. There was also a belly dancer as entertainment which was fun. fun evening with great food.

Lovely restaurant with great atmosphere especially when the belly dancer started dancing! The food was 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 really was the service. Waited about 20 minutes for a drink and about the same for our desert. There was a sign at front of restaurant asking for staff so could be that they were short staffed, that's the only criticism though.

Mezza Luna provides an excellent dining experience. The meze menu offers a good variety of delicious dishes, the falafels are really good. The portions are generous, the staff are friendly and helpful. The prices are very reasonable and give very good value.

Very friendly welcome and staff were fairly attentive. Starters were fantastic, had the Calamari and the potatoes to share which were really well cooked. The main course though was cooked at the same time as the starters and I could see it sat up on the pass the whole time we ate our starters. Therefore as soon as the starter plates had been cleared the main arrived, the meat had dried up a bit by this point plus it didn't give us much of a breather between courses. Other than this the meal was enjoyable, great value for money and the house red was lovely. Great entertainment from the belly dancer also.
