I eat here regularly when staying in Melrose Arch (monthly) and they just never fail. The food is fresh and tasty and the accompanying service is very good. One of my favourites.

Having been in the food business for many years Mezepoli is always a pleasure as the expected standards are consistently in place. My establishment of choice when I need a Greek "fix!"

Superb choice of small plates and anti pasta, very social environment with tables on the square. My only complaint is that sitting inside is very noisy - impossible to have any sort of conversation

Greek meze, definitely one of my favorites and being fortunate enough to have been able to experience it in Greece a few times, I can honestly say this is authentic and great tasting Greek food, well presented and excellent service.

I absolutely love Mezepoli! The food is amazing, and we always end up ordering too much, but it is definitely worth it! The wine selection is very nice, but service is a bit slow. Not the same service you get at the one in Camp's Bay. Best Tsatsiki you will ever taste!! I definitely recommend: the cod coujons, Mama's meatballs,... More

We arrived just before 21:00, which was lucky as that is the cut off for taking orders on a Monday evening which made the whole experience or ordering a little bit rushed. That being said, this was some of the nicest meze I've ever had. Some dishes that were genuinely new to me; squid heads and the calamari with feta... More

Hi - so the food and the service in this place is top class. My new favourite thing in the whole world is yaris (beef strips), mini pita and humus (ask for fresh chilli too) and mix it all together with an ice cold beer - its how the Greek Gods would eat!!!! Their chourico is also brilliant. So aside... More

I've lost count of the number of times we have eaten here, it is an essential stop on any trip to SA. The food is fantastic and the service always friendly and efficient. Management is always visible, this is what a great dining experience is supposed to be. We will always be back.
