This exciting new restaurant deserves every success, as its food is simply superb. Offering an eclectic mix of Spanish dishes alongside other Mediterranean- influenced choices, Mezzeto gets it spot on – everything we tried on our recent trip was mouth-wateringly good.

This is a place to bring friends and share dishes; you are encouraged to branch out and try several, but the portion sizes are still substantial. A dish of broad beans, artichoke, sundried tomato and tangy goat’s cheese can easily be shared but also works as a main meal alone. This was just one of a medley we indulged in on our visit. I highly recommend the slow-roasted marinated pork belly, which was crisp on the outside yet dreamily tender on the inside. Seafood and grill platters are very popular at Mezzeto, and the chicken tagine is a dish made for spice-lovers. Even the spinach salad is worthy of note – scattered with dried fruits and almonds and drizzled with a dressing that included sumac, a tangy lemony spice typical of Middle Eastern cuisine, it was delicious.

Mezzeto’s desserts are wonderfully imaginative. We tried pomegranate and vodka sorbet with Greek yoghurt ice cream, which was delightfully refreshing after our mains. We then proceeded to dive into a dish of pears poached in wine with a scoop of delicate orange blossom and honey ice cream, sprinkled with pistachios – a worthy way to round off our feast.
