Delicious food at very reasonable prices. Nice lively atmosphere (there on a Friday night) and friendly service by the staff. Lots of different Greek/Mediterranean options on the menu. The zucchini with cheese and meatballs were great!

Restaurant seemed too busy, that should have been our first sign to find another restaurant. Service was very slow, almost like they were short-staffed, had to leave our table 2x to ask for service. food was not great when compared to our previous visits, lacked flavour and chicken was a little undercooked. Quite disappointing.

Great meze and cocktails in a strange setting. If feels way too ultra-modern for the cuisine, but if you can ignore that, or eat outside, you'll really enjoy what they're serving. Order lots, because the portions are tiny. And it's very well priced. It's hard to break the bank here.

We had an awesome experience. It was so difficult to pick only a few options off of the menu as we wanted to try them all. Food came through really quickly and was freshly cooked. Our waitress was super attentive and friendly. Would highly recommend the grilled halva. All in all a wonderful experience.

One of my favourite restaurants! I don’t think I’ve visited any other restaurants as many times as I’ve been to Mezepoli. They offer a wide range of meze’s so you can mix and match as you please.

Had lunch in the day we arrived from London. Lovely food and nice setting. Good choice for the family - we had a mix of Meze, sushi and chicken in pita. Would recommend!

Location : located very near the Marriott at melrose arch Setting : lots of outdoor seating under a huge tent, spacious comfortable seating Service : very efficient; a little bit rushed at times . Food was brought out soon after we ordered. The food : mostly great . I loved the meatball in tomato sauce , the fried cod was delicious too . The orzo in the chickpea rice pasta dish was tasty , though the chickpeas were so so. The chicken livers in peri peri sauce were very good. The only dish that was a failure was the grilled octopus - the octopus was too chewy and it also tasted a little fishy …

Everything about this restaurant was excellent - the cleanliness, quality of service and food, variety, etc… The food is not expensive at all either. Definitely go for the melted halva for dessert with slice caramelizada apple and cinnamon.

I’ve never seen a restaurant so busy on a Wednesday! There was a bit of a wait because of this but the staff were all so kind and hard working. I ordered variety of vegan meze dishes which were delicious 😍 I can’t wait to come back!

I've become a regular at Meze's in Melrose Arch, when I have a sushi craving it's always my go to with my friend. They also have this wonderful Pita Grassini with Tsatsiki sauce starter, absolutely divine. I haven't ordered anything else on their menu - I just go there for the sushi and for the 2 years I've eaten there haven't been disappointed. I've also had the Sushi as a takeaway during lockdown and it's always well-packaged and sustainable.

Had a late Sunday lunch with famiy and friends. While the food was delicious, it was very overpriced considering the portion sizes. We eat Greek regularly so are aware of what to expect when dining Greek style. The service wasn't good at all for two reasons, firstly the server kept forgetting to bring food and beverages we had ordered and secondly we were made to feel that it was such a burden for her to have to serve us. Also, they don't really cater for kids, as there isn't a kids menu or many options for kids to eat. Enjoyed the food and cocktails, but probably won't go back or recommend to friends because there are Greek Restaurants which have great food and much better service.

Really disappointing. Veg dishes were ok, but nothing to shout home about. Meat dishes were awful. Dry and tasteless. Gin & Tonic comes with cheap tonic. Basically, really poor quality over-all. Great spot but really not worth it if you actually appreciate good food.
