Our Customer Feedback

Troy & Michelle

Le Mensa is a Hidden Gem, not because it is hard to find but because it was good quality meals that were well priced. Yes, it doesn’t have the same atmosphere as the restaurants down the road in the heritage buildings but hey when dining as a family the key things you want are well priced Flavorsome some food.

Aditi Swaroop

Food was a hit with the kids & adults. There is ample space for big groups,  and the place has a relaxed, fun feel to it. We had 4-5 different cocktails, and each & every one of it has a good zing to it.

Mitchell Taylor

My partner & I came here for dinner. Great service & food came out within a reasonable time. Arancini balls were the best we’ve had & both pasta dishes were absolutely spot on. Highly recommend for anyone in the area!
