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!!!!

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.

Another fantastic meal with great service... A great restaurant if you like Greek/Cypriot/Lebanese food. There is such a great choice to choose from catering to everyones needs. The service is great and just being able to eat outside makes it more enjoyable. We have been a few times during our trips to SA and have always enjoyed our meal here.... More

Mezepoli - Melrose Arch - always had a good meal there. Would suggest to make table reservations prior to arrival as often busy.

Compared to the Greek food one gets in Greece this food is not bad and probably some of the better Greek food you can get in Johannesburg, But the Yiro can just not taste the same if it is not made with Pork.

Recommended by a friend. Very good food though the mix of Greek and sushi is a bit odd (but delicious nevertheless). Service was fast and excellent and our only complaint was that we felt a bit rushed, as though they were clearing up quickly to get a new group to the table. Good cocktails and I Iiked the "honey badger".
