Fabulous greek restaurant!

Often eat here and the food is always good, love their baby chickens peri peri, bit awkward to eat with knife and fork but you get the hang of it. The meze platters are great, huge variety and always tasty. The waitrons are always friendly and great with suggestions. Great location!

Super place. Good outdoor seating. Great service. Good wide menu, with Sushi available too. Careful with big groups; some portions are small, for example Humus and Tsatziki

Enjoying restaurants with friends in Johannesburg for a celebration weekend and Mezepoli came out tops. We were 15 friends and family en masse for Sunday brunch and had a fantastic selection of starters, all of which were hot, tasty and perfect for our group. We then went to Cape Town to their sister restaurant which we will experience with you... More

The Greek/Macedonian food at Mezepoli is consistently excellent, try the beefkteki (a burger patty with based tomato on top) or the halva salad or the squid heads, and the pita grissini and the taramasalata. The baked halva and the halva ice cream should not be missed. Also the Turkish coffee is a winner. What sets this place apart is the... More

On our recent visit to South Africa, we took the opportunity to try out this restaurant with friends, based upon the Trip Advisor positive reviews. With the exception of the octopus which was quite chewy, all of the mezes were of outstanding quality. Prices, by our standards were reasonable, and the service was very good. We chose to sit inside... More

I received excellent serivec from the moment I stepped in. Unfortunately the starter was average... I was disappointed. Then, I was recommended to go for Spanakopita... grilled Halva as Desert... just excellent. I will come back, but next time I willstay outside as in doors was pretty noisy.

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.
