Everything - the dips and pita bread, Greek salad, white anchovies, calamari and sardines, chicken livers peri peri and seared salmon, it was all completely fresh and delicious. Baklava, grilled halva, halva ice cream, frozen honey yoghurt and complementary orange slices. What a feast! Yummm!

I cannot tell you about the meal because we had booked for 7 people for a Saturday night AND to add insult to injury we still phoned back to see if the lady had understood and to add one extra person and she appeared to have got the booking right. Then when our friends arrived, embarrassingly they could not be... More

Now open in the Nicholway Shopping Center in Bryanston. Corkage is only R40, so worthwhile taking your own wine & using Uber. Very busy on a Saturday, food & service was good.

The Greek/Lebanese/Macedonian food at Mezepoli never disappoints, it was packed again at lunch today. My Bifteki/Pljeskavica was excellent again, a spicy mince patty with grilled tomato and fresh onions. They always get it right at Mezepoli!

This was our first visit to Mezepoli. We enjoy Greek food and were delighted at the variety and quality of the dishes presented. All were exceptionally tasty and well presented typifying what we remembered of our visit to Greece.

...if you like "tapas", small Greek, Spanish ...Mediterranean. We ordered several, plates are small, including lamb cutlets, shrimp, olives, salads (excellent), squid. Nice SA wine list. Prices are fair for South Africa: 70 US dollars for a nice dinner for three. Good service, terrace and inside tables.

Restaurant was without water, they stayed open and were unable to offer any form of hygienic services. A request for coffee was turned down, offered tea as long as we paid for the still water. Total tourist trap, to be avoided at all costs.

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.
