On our way to another resturant and changed our mind and popped in here. Well what a good decision. Food was fantastic, service great and reasonably priced. This time there were only two of us but really one wants to go with a few couples so you can try lots of the dishes. We will be back soon.

The restaurant boasts modern décor and furnishes with a warm and inviting yet vibrant ambience. We chose a table right outside on the piazza. Our waiter, Godwin was very friendly, professional and effortlessly made helpful suggestions on the... More

I could go on. I think pricing very fair for the location and environment. Service was excellent, our waiters cleared everything as I cleared the plates! :) Will definitely... More

The menu of Mezepoli is wide with several options and the stuff is professional and fast. The pita bread was tasty and all the meals were well cooked. For my point of view, the place is a... More

Great venue and wonderful outside tables to enjoy a long afternoon lunch. Suggest a tapas style approach to mix and match the various options Try the calamari ,

This remains our all-time favourite restaurant in Johannesburg. The welcome and service is always excellent, and the Greek-Macedonian-Lebanese food never ceases to disappoint and delight one!

When I am alone I order 3-5different meals, because they are quite small but amazing and for a good price also. I do not need to recommend a thing because everything is amzzzzzzzzing!
