“Greek food Jo'burg Style”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2014

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.

“Great food!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 5, 2014

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".

“Mezepoli get it all right”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 16, 2013

Vibey place in hot spot of Melrose Arch, delicious Greek food and offers some of the best sushi: thick pieces of salmon, good variety and affordable. The food got to us really quickly and the service is perfect (they bring the handwipes to you already open, useful if you're having their tasty chicken wings). Lastly, not many places in JHB offer you excellent cocktails at R40. They get it right on all counts.

“Meze at a Differrent Level”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Just the venue for a long leisurely Sunday lunch. Exquisite Meze, probably the best I have had for a long time. We sampled most of the menu and all was pronounced superb. Although part of the Plaka group the food is on a different level. Excellent service and good wine list. Festive crowd, mostly families all having fun. We will be back. Please open in Durban.
