    For the fourth time, I recently dined at this restaurant and was thoroughly impressed with the quality of the food. The flavours were impeccable, and the presentation was elegant. However, the service was, unfortunately, a let-down. Despite the restaurant being very quiet compared to regular days, the experience with the staff was inattentive and quite slow. It was disappointing to see the lack of basic consideration and attentiveness from the serving staff, which hindered the overall dining experience. The food was sublime, and it is a shame that the experience with the serving staff took away from that. It is apparent that the real problem lies with the experience and attentiveness of the serving staff. One colleague is more versed than the other, hindering the experience. They appeared disinterested in providing quality service, and it detracted from the overall ambience of the restaurant. Despite the service being poor, I would still recommend this restaurant solely for the quality of the food. It is a shame that the serving staff did not match the level of excellence in the food. Nonetheless, if you're looking for a culinary experience with superb food, then this restaurant is definitely worth checking out.

    We are sorry that your experience with the staff was inattentive. We are definitely going to discuss this in a staff meeting. We hope you come again to give us another chance and let you experience our restaurant as you are supposed to do: food with good flavours and staff with good service.

    It was such a nice environment. The food was sooooo good!!! The people were extremely nice as well, also explaining some of the dishes if you didnt know them. The price was also perfect for the quality and quantity of the food. One little constructive critique: once another plate is coming, it would be great to get the others we used not to have too many plates on the table!!

    Great find! Spectacular food, unfortunately, an understaffed night and a giant table beside us, the service was very good but not outstanding. Ambience and environment are exactly what the nature and cuisine of the restaurant inspire. Plain and simple, if you desire incredibly good food, you can be a reasonable customer to a busy establishment with excellent staff; you are in for a treat.

    Mechoui (Owner)

    Thank you for the honest feedback! We shall try our best to improve and hope to see you again!

    Heel lekker gegeten, verrassingsmenu, kip, gamba's, ossenhaas, lam, geconfijt fruit, couscous enz. gehad. Één opmerking, ga warme platen gebruiken, het eten koelt te veel af. Verder alles zeer goed.

    Mechoui (Owner)

    Dank u voor uw suggestie. We zullen kijken naar bord warmhouders.

    A pleasant immersion in North-African/South Mediterranean cuisine. A lot of fresh vegetables accompaning every single dish and very nice the "mezze" (small servings) which allow to taste many different specialties. Interesting use of spices and subtle flavours, used differently for every dish. Not so good the condition of toilets, which are also important in a public space.

    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!
