The best thing about this restaurant is it's location, we had a table overlooking the square, the food is also good and the service friendly, I had a lamb shank and it was the biggest I've ever had.

My experience at Pappas was undortunately not that exciting. The food was average and the service was ok. I will rather go elsewhere.
Sorry Pappas

Very nice restaurant above the square. Food is very good and the service is great. Possibly not the best Greek food but it ranks well.

On a recent business trip 2 colleagues and I went to Mandela Square looking for a meal. By pure chance we settled on Pappas on the Square. A table on the balcony overlooking the square got our evening off to a great start, and then Benjamin arrived and matters got better - great service with a friendly smile and good repartee.
The wine list is really good and varied, and prices are not outrageous. And the menu, Greek themed, offers plenty of choice. Our party shared the grilled halloumi starter, and then had the Burger, Rib eye steak special and the filled calamari (quite superb), with lots of veggies and salads. We will certainly return when next in Johannesburg.

I ordered a lovely chicken salad, which tasted heavenly and was freshly made as well as my fresh juice... Chicken salad was a lovely portion with fried mozzarella bits, avocado, generously portioned for a grown man. Its cafe is hidden away in the mall but so worth finding. Two juices and a salad cost me 120ZAR with the tip which is about 6 UK pounds... Nice service too
