Shared a few small plates, the prawns in kataifi pastry was the stand-out dish, really delicious and the prawns perfectly cooked. The kleftiko for main course was equally delicious, and the prices really good for the portion size.

Had a nice little dinner of small plates: pita & hummus, phyllo wrapped feta in honey, fried calamari. Plus a nice sparkling wine based drink (Pappas Fizz Maybe?) All excellent and the service was very fast.

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
