“Used to be my favourite place to eat in joburg.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 18, 2012 via mobile

The best dish in this place to eat was the beef fillet. I have had it about thirty times before and it is a must for every trip of mine back to joburg.

Today.... Well the steak tasted off. The chips were under done.

The complaint was ignored and I was given my bill by the waitron who tried to get me out asap!!! And the inedible steak was on the bill!!!

Really really really disappointed as have had do many birthday parties and meals here with loads of people and the standard has dropped profoundly!!!

Very sad!!

“Greek fusion food for a vegetarian...”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

I have been to the Eastgate and Melrose branch of this branch from the Plaka group. I find the meze quite good however the prices for the quantity given is a little expensive. The vegetarian platter is unfortunately not one of the best I have had as the flavours were all over the place. Otherwise, the service and ambiance is very welcoming.

“Too nyce”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2012

Mezepoli is absolutely fantastic!!! The service is on point and the food is great. I visit this spot quite frequently and I'm never disappointed. The lounge music in the background and blue and white decor create for an awesome ambience. It's best to go in groups and eat a little of everything. I enjoy it on Friday afternoons , there is a great Buzz. I love it there.
