Good 9pm food stop

Plenty of options e.g. bravas, dolmakia, falafel, hummus and bread. Very reasonably priced, paid £60 for a meal for 3 (one meat eater, two of us shared vegan bits, also had two beers and one Greek coffee). Restaurant has nice vibes and service was friendly too!

Solid options, everything tasty

Not much else to say, everything we ordered was tasty and authentic. The staff were attentive and kind. Not a big beer selection but the food more than made up for it. The ezme was particularly good.

Pros: Generous portions , Helpful staff , Cozy atmosphere

Cons: Not a wide beer selection

Really tasty!

I had takeout from here and it was really good. Amazing lentil soup, thick pita, vine leaves, fattoush salad, and the ezme was amazing!

My only complaint is that there wasn’t enough veg in the salad, it was mostly red onion and bread. Would have been superb with more greens and tomatoes.

I would go back for the soup alone.

Pros: Lentil soup, Several vegan options

Cons: Salad didn’t have enough veg

Delicious food and lots of options

We ended up with almost every vegan option, and it was all delicious! The staff were very welcoming and helpful. Although the baba ganoush was listed as vegetarian they double checked when I queried (it is actually vegan) and made sure everything vegan was labelled as it came to the table (as my companion had ordered a couple of non-vegan dishes, not shown in the photo). We ordered far too much so took some home with us!

Above average tastes and choices

A warm welcome and a simple ‘on the house’ addition to a table covered with dishes made this a pleasant evening. Vegan dishes are clearly marked. The wine wasn’t vegan, but was poured generously.

Pros: A great deal of vegan choices, Good presentation of each dish, Generous portions

Cons: No vegan wine

Clearly marked vegan options. Would be good to share several plates with friends, but for the single diner the fattoush salad was a meal in itself

Cute tasty lunch option in the New Town

Several delicious vegan options, food was very fresh and healthy, a welcome charge from the burgers and chips that constitute most vegan options around Rose Street.

Great vegan options

DELICIOUS food, wide variety for vegans and veggies (enough to actually make a choice for your 3 meze dishes!!), and great price! Also the service was to a high standard and the atmosphere was lovely.

Pros: LOTS of vegan options, Reasonable price, Great service and atmosphere

Cons: It’s quite small so might not find a seat

So much Tasty Variety

This place is an experience.

The moment you walk the decor and the atmosphere is so settling, it's just the right size so that even in peak times it would still be so relaxing.

I had walked past this place a few times and always wanted to dip in.
My mother is currently visiting so we decided to drop in and, wow, was I pleasently surprised.

A great menu with loads of range, with me being vegan I was very happy with how accommodating the menu was and the food was top notch delicious.

But even before we tasted it, my mum commented firstly on how beautiful it was presented, absolutely true, the beautiful arrangement of colours and textures perfectly accompanied by a range of tastes, and we were both happy with the price too.

I never seem to usually get in on 'Hidden Gems' but Meze Meze seems to really be the definition, and of course, the staff were welcoming and lovely and had a great cheery manner about them.

I hope to return very soon.

This is a must visit location.

Pros: Affordable, great food, good portions, great decor, Friendly staff

Cons: Book in advance - not neccesary, but as its small.

Good for sharing

Lots of vegan dishes and large portions. Varied and colourful. Perfect for sharing and what you cannot finish you can take away. Central location. Nice for a change.

Brilliant as always

Large selection of hot and cold vegan meze, which me and my partner enjoyed. We ordered 6 meze dishes altogether and couldn’t even finish them all- fab portion sizes. They also have us an extra 2 dishes for free (an olive salad & babaganoush ) which were stunning! Defo visit again when I am next in Edinburgh!

Pros: Huge portions , Attentive staff, Tasty food

Cons: Expensive

Great little restaurant on Rose Street!

Fab little restaurant with a meze/ tapas menu with a fixed price for 3 dishes. Lots of vegan dishes available. I really enjoyed being able to try lots of different dishes as we were 4 people so we had 12 plates of food!

Pros: Lots of clearly labelled vegan dishes., Great for sharing lots of dishes with friends., Everything we tried was packed with flavour.

Cons: Very small, best to book ahead.

So good!

After finding this place using this app, I was not disappointed! A friend and I went for lunch where you can get three dishes off the menu for £12.50. Everything is labelled vegan, vegetarian, gluten free, and dairy free. I had the soupa, the bravas, and the manitaria - all vegan; my friend had the falafel (vegan), the arancini (vegetarian) and the greek salad (vegetarian). We got complimentary bread and hummus too. The soup was really tasty and my friend loved the arancini (sort of like cheese balls). She said the greek salad was good but it had a lot of tomatoes in it so if you are a big fan of tomatoes then it could be perfect for you! Everything else we had was really nice too, and the service was excellent. The young lady who served us was so nice and whenever I asked about whether something was vegan she always promptly returned with an answer from the chef or the boss. It's a small place, but it does have more room downstairs for larger numbers of people. I would highly recommend this place, it was a very good first meal in Edinburgh - definitely set us right after a long journey!

Pros: Great food, Friendly staff, Labelled menu

Should be 5 stars!!

This place was incredible!! We went for the 10 plate meze tasting meal where the chef chooses. Explained that one of us was vegan and one vegetarian and they were so accommodating. Not only this but they gave us 12 plates! Everything absolutely delicious and well presented. Sooo much food but we ate everything as it was too good to leave.

Pros: Very generous and economical for what you get.

Cons: none.
