MEZES on the Danforth

I had dinner with a friend at Mezes on the Danforth yesterday and have to say that I LOVED THE FOOD!

We started with a grilled octopus appetizer. Two long tentacles were grilled with olive oil, lemon and herbs. This was the best grilled octopus I have had. It was not chewy at all and was very tender. We then tried the grilled quail. Again, it was grilled to perfection! It was tender and slightly pink inside. I could have 4-5 of the quails for dinner, as they were so good with a squeeze of lemon on top. I opted for 2 Lamb chops and my friend opted for the roast leg of lamb dinner. My lamb chops again were perfectly grilled and yummy. My friend was so stuffed that he was unable to finish his dinner. His dinner came with rice, potatoes and a greek salad.

Overall, I would give this restaurant a 8.5/10. I would definitely go back again. I have to also mention that the restaurant was almost full at 7:30 p.m. on a Tuesday night.
