A clean, fresh venue that overlooks the piazza at Melrose Arch, Mezepoli has a relaxing atmosphere that almost convinces you're at the coast. Fill your table with lots of little dishes to share. They serve THE best, crispy chips you can find. Their calamari heads is another must-have! I always have a glass (yes, they do good wine by the glass) of Ken Forrester Petit Chenin

My wife and I had a late lunch there on Sunday afternoon. The place was busy but not over-packed. The servce was great. The menu was very broad with something for everyone (my wife is 7 months pregnant so you can imagine she is very picky!!) This was our first experience of a Meze bar alone (in the past relied on the more experienced pallets of friends) so we asked our waiter for guidance. He recommended 4 options and I must say we where pleasantly delighted with the options. Mezepoli is a refreshingly different from the other options in the Piazza of Melrose Arch!

Really enjoyed the shwarma and was surprised at the affordability in an affluent part of Johannesburg.
Vibey atmosphere inside.

Having once torn myself away from Tasha's at Melrose Arch, I tried this restaurant opposite and was amply rewarded. I never get beyond the authentic and delicious meze (why anyone would want to eat a chunk of overcooked lamb shank in preference to the light and delicate variety of the meze escapes me), very close to what you will find in Greece or Turkey; service is efficient and prices reasonable for Melrose Arch. The crsipy battered calamari, picked octopus, marinated peppers, domades, halloumi cheese, beef and chicken souvlaki and various dips are all delicious. Cocktails rather pricey and not brilliant, but passable. There is a baked halva dessert (called something like "hlipiti" I think, but I may be wrong) which is truly spectacular. Sitting on the outside deck in the sunshine on a weekend afternoon (trying not to be distracted by the hideous and overbearing screen now erected in the "square", which, as usual for Johannesburg, is rather sterile), or in the heated interior in winter, is a real treat. Highly recommended.
