From Middle English mese, mes, mees (dinner, dish), from Old English mēse, mēose, mīse, mȳse (table; that which is set on a table; dish; food, meal), probably from Vulgar Latin mēsa, from Latin mēnsa (table).

Compare Old English mēsan (to eat, dine), from Proto-Germanic *mōsijaną, from Proto-Germanic *mōsą, an ablaut variant of the root Proto-Germanic mat- (food).
