Have eaten at Ari's several times when visiting Cape Town, always enjoyed their food. We had Meze starters, and moussaka or shawarma’s for main course. Enjoyed by all. Tot of ouzo with the Meze went down well. Pleaseant staff, good food, reasonably priced, will return.

Very hungry after a long day, we tried this one and it was ok, but not too impressive. Friendly staff and fast service, but no ambiente as well as just regular greek food, but at least fresh.

The worst meal in Cape Town by far. Left most of it. The wine is terrible too. Nothing positive apart from my can of beer!! I should have realised by the standard of decor!

It had been 25 years but Aris is still there and still doing a great souvalaki. We ate there sitting on the street. The garlicky sauce was so good.
