“Authentically Greek”
Reviewed January 18, 2013

We took my parents here for their anniverasary lunch. Being vegetarian, Mythos in the Design Quarter obliged with a delicious vegetarian meze platter. Us omnivores savoured lemon sole and fall-off-the bone lamb kleftiko. The owners recently returned from a disppointing emigration to their homeland in Greece have tempted the local Greek community to their restaurant with their authentic and delicious Greek fare and are making a roaring success of their new venture in sunny South Africa.

“Food is Fresh , Delish and Yum”
Reviewed December 18, 2012

I particularly love the one at Design Quarters in Fourways ....Love the fact you can pick up nice things for your home from the vast range of home stores, There is a really nice art gallery on the corner of one of the aisles called The Arts Shop , after shopping , it’s imperative you finish the day of at Mythos, you sit and just watch the day go by in a serene, clean, minimalistic style setting almost reminiscent of a beach front predominantly white with a splash of blue colour, very Mediterranean...my favourite meal is the Sole Fish with roast Baby Potatoes and a Greek Salad or creamed Spinach....the owner is a cute older lady who comes around to say hello every time I have been here with a big smile and Lovely hair like the cast of Dynasty (Think Joan Collins) ! Love it

“Food good (but pricey) friendly service”
Reviewed December 14, 2012

The food here is pretty good by South African/Greek standards, but it's pricey, about R500 for two people. Siuated in a small Sandton shopping mall, the decor is rather cold - blue bottles, soaring ceiling, monstrous lights - but the service is unfailingly warm and swift.
The grilled haloumi; triangular cheese and herb pies, taramosalata, tzaziki, grilled calamari and fried baby octopus heads are all good. The stuffed eggplant and moussaka dishes are also very good.

“Good value, bad music”
Reviewed December 13, 2012

Like most restaurants the music is played too loudly, but the food is very good. Lots of selection. Good for vegetarians and vegans.
