    The staff were very nice and the food was brilliant. Due to unfortunate reasons they were building on street so the atmosphere was not the greatest ever but overall we were so pleased to go!

    We found this restaurant Friday night after searching for Moroccan fayre..the starter was lovely, the main not so. My husband ordered pork shoulder tagine, which was watery, and tasteless..for my chicken tagine, which was grey and cold, the vegetables hard..I did eat some of the chicken but we both sent back our meals to be warmed husband didn't want a second meal was slightly better, warm at least but still lacking in any flavour at all.., the chicken great and rubbery.. I did make a comment to the shift manager to voice my unhappiness, and he was actually lovely, but didn't offer to refund our meal..what he did offer was a comment and I quote ' it must be ok or you would have puked by now, it's been over half an hour...' helpful...he thenwent on to say that possibly it was a good idea if the chef actually tasted the food before serving. To say I was underwhelmed is an understatement..The night that followed left me extremely unwell, which continued the following day..I appreciate the restaurant was extremely busy, but clearly my meal had been sitting out for hours, this was highly unacceptable. I would not revisit this restaurant in the future.

    I haven't been to Méchoui for a year and forgot what I was missing. The atmosphere is great and reminds me of Morocco, the food is great and really tasty and the service is fast and friendly. Do I recommend it? Hell yeah!

    Mechoui was a great restaurant to come by; the first N. African cuisine we've tried. The ambiance of the restaurant suited the wide and varied selection of food and drinks perfectly. The staff was very welcoming and friendly as well! We highly recommend eating here, and we certainly plan on coming back again since it's now one of our new favorites in town!

    Both the service and the food were very nice. The price was also reasonable. We like the dim atmosphere. We highly recommend this restaurant and will come back here definitely.

    Helaas was er zoveel rumoer, het personeel was slecht te verstaan en er was amper de mogelijk een gesprek te voeren

    I was out with my girl on a date, and it was a very good decision going to Mechoui. We enjoyed it from the beginning , the warm welcome from the people working there , food was great , we were continuously closing our eyes and enjoying the good taste of the food. Very impressive the atmosphere of the place , you just feel that for 2 hours you are visiting a new country and that is because of the people working there. In a sentence about the experience at Mechoui : it made me and my girlfriend smile all the way back to the car. Thank you !

    One of the best restaurants in the city, no doubt. We got the menu for 7 people, following the waiter's suggestion, and it was simply amazing. We got a lot of different big dishes and all of them delicius, I can't even choose the best one. Loved the athmosphere and the food. The staff was really friendly, so I really recommend this place.

    Beautifully decorated place with friendly waitstaff and excellent food. I also recommend the Arabische coffee! We came for the tagine, because I have just bought a Moroccan cookbook and wanted to see an example of well-prepared food from this region of Africa. They were fabulous.
