I have been to Mezepoli many times, for family lunches and lunches with work colleagues. What stands out is their consistency. The food is prepared fresh, and the service is consistently outstanding. They have a menu that will appeal to a variety of taste buds....More

Great place! Amazing and big patio with heaters. SUPER attentive and helpful staff. Huge menu, tons of options - including vegetarian- and also good local wines. I spent 2 hours there over a leisurely lunch. Would highly recommend.

Popped in to catch the opening of the soccer World Cup on the square big screen. Service was great. Food was excellent as normal. This is a well polished operation and was cooking when I left. Love the Greek food here!

I wish this nice restaurant would inject some more OTT Greek decor into this otherwise lovely restaurant. I was a HUGE FAN of the old Plaka in Thrupps Centre & I miss it like heck.

It is a very nice restaurant with all kinds of sea foods, meats, appetizers and desserts. If you are looking for Mediterranean restaurant, this one is good choice.

The beef fillet was perfectly cooked. The seasoning was excellent. The line fish was ok and tastes overcooked. Selection of wine was also good. Waitress is attentive and efficient. Good place to hang out with friends and family.

Great location on the edge of a square in Melrose Arch. We ate early evening so enjoyed the sunset whilst relaxing with beautiful wine, superb food and outstanding service. Cannot fault any aspect of our evening with a special mention of their attentive, friendly staff.

The selection of wines is superb. Had a wonderful Pinotage reserve! The Mediterranean food served as small plates allowed us to sample a number of dishes. The calamari was especially tasteful. Staff were helpful and attentive.
