“Meze: Sharing”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 12, 2013

Compared to the rest of the restaurants on the strip, this place is very well-priced and the patrons are very friendly. As we had never had this kind of dining before the waiter explained that meze meant sharing so you order a variety of dishes and share. Kind of like a platter. The squid is simply to die for!
Had a great time here, will definitely visit again when i'm in the area!

“HUGE VARIETY OF TAPAS”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2013

Mezepoli is in the perfect position on the Camps Bay Strip. Great restaurant to step into after being on the beach to a welcoming cocktail & delicious tapas! I did however visit on a beautiful winters day. Their wasn't much atmosphere for a Saturday afternoon but that could have been due to that the fact that it was winter. The waiting staff are very attentive, friendly and knowlegable about the menu. I always get nervous when I see such huge variety on a menu as how could all that food possibly be fresh? We stuck to ordering a big selection of tapas, some good, some average, none awful! The portions are small and your bill can add up quickly! Great variety with regards to different meat dishes and a big selection of vegetarian choices. The wine and bubbly by the glass are not overpriced at all. I will definately be back for the great variety of tapas on offer.

“Lovely setting. Excellent service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 26, 2013 via mobile

We decided to try this restaurant for the first time in May. What a pleasant surprise ! A spotlessly clean interior plus an extensive menu that was well priced / affordable and really efficient waitrons. I had a selection of Tapas whilst my daughter had Sushi. Presentation was excellent and so was the food. Good selection of well priced wines accompanied the menu. A very enjoyable meal. We will definitely be going back !!!

“One of my favourites”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2013

I love coming here on Sunday afternoons, no matter the weather in Camps Bay. The cocktails are too good and the sushi is delicious. Small portions yes, but then again it is a "meze" restaurant. I also love the feta filled calamari and the delicious vanilla scented rice pudding and of course, the pita and feta-chili dip. Plus we use our loyalty card each time we come here :)

“Fantastic Food, great Concept and funky Place.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2013

I love, love, love Mezepoli at Victoria Road, Camps Bay.

The Mezze-Concept: You order a selection of delicious small meals with a mediterranean influence. I was there couple of times joined by only happy people and we ordered heaps of different mezze. It was absolutely delicious and heaps of fun to share the plates. The place is huzzling and buzzing and therefore very loud.

Nevermind, we are coming back!
