Always great

Fantastic Greek food. Always delicious, fresh and well presented. Definitely try the Mojitos here! Noisy, but fun atmosphere

Love eating at Mezepoli. Always great food and with a group I love the tapas style menu. However it in incredibly noisy when sitting inside. It is the one draw back.

I've eaten there before, and the food has always been consistently excellent, the service crisp, and the whole experience worthy of a review. I just had lunch (7 Jan), and the experience was even better than before. It's great to see the quality and standards maintained, and really highly recommended meze-dining experience, for both locals and tourists.

Best restaurant in Melrose Arch. Food is always great and the service is exceptional. Well done to the owner for keeping up a consistent standard that never disappoints.

The best tapas restaurant in Jozi by far. Food is consistently great. I have just enjoyed a quick lunch with my life partner but am contemplating staying for dinner.

Mezepoli delivers great food time after time. Their Meze dishes are tasty, especially their chicken kebabs. Meze can be pricey but then again it is quality.

If you are in Jozi and in the mood food a little Greek, Mezepoli is undoubtably the best Greek Restaurant I have ever had the pleasure of dining at...which is often! I have been going to Mezepoli for the last 5 years, and I'm never disappointed after I leave. The food is absolutely delicious, fresh and a true taste of... More

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.
