Got the aubergine mousaka and the slow cooked lamb. Both were pretty good, and they also have a decent selection of wine by the glass. Ambience is great and have a view to Mandela Square

Had an outstanding meal here! Falafel, haloumi, prawn starter were all excellent. Loved the complementary dips and warm pita bread. Our waiter was warm and friendly and looked after us. Would definitely go again!

I had the most tender succulent beef ribs in this place and some really nice doughnut balls called loukoumades?! I loved the vibe and we really had a fun night here. Service was prompt and staff attentive.

This is a nice restaurant. It has a very friendly and helpful staff. The inside spaces are pleasant and the tables nearer to Mandela Square have a very nice view of the square. Food is very good.

Good Day, Park in the Sandton City Mall or in Nelson Mandela Square and ask anyone where the Nelson Mandela Stature on the square is located. The restaurant is located up the stairs from the stature. Kind regards Rushni
