Excellent restaurant in the heart of melrose arch. Good service (waiter always available and ready to help) despite the place being very very busy! Food was excellent and the ambiance was great.... A place to recommend!

Lovely tasty food - Mediterranean style ... lots to choose from. Delicious greek style dolmades and calamari .... spicy of not your choice. The only negative would be that there is no background music.... but super great food and service!

A great Mediterranean style lunch in an airy bright setting in melrose arch. Recommended to have tapas style where you share the meals. Food was excellent and the service great too.

Always a treat to catch up with my BFF and what better than Proseco and meze for a long catch up . Delicious squid heads and souvlaki to die for . Casual Greek dining

This is one of our favourite restaurants. The service, atmosphere and food are always good. This restaurant is always buzzing yet very organised. There is always a manger on hand to make sure that everything is running smoothly even thought the waiters are some of the best in town! I can even recommend takeaways, never disappointing. It is difficult to... More

We stopped by for a late lunch and really enjoyed our meal. I liked that we could order a variety of tapas and share. Everything we ordered was excellent. The grilled octopus, mushroom dish, beets, salmon cone, haloumi cheese and the ginger margaritas. If in the area definitely eat here.

Looking for an early meal, this didn't disappoint. The chicken portion was huge (half a chicken!) and the steak nicely done. Great value at £25 for two including drinks and starters, the great humous and pitta of the title. Not a great atmosphere and despite lots of staff, service a little slow.

Mezepoli remains our favourite restaurant in Johannesburg. From the time that one enters the restaurant and you are welcomed by Nathi, to the excellent service by Khombi, nothing could be faulted at our lunch today. The food is always always excellent at Mezepoli, that goes without saying. Try the deep-fried squid heads, the bifteki, the Pita Grissini and the haloumi... More
