The restaurant is spotlessly clean and the fact that it's well patronized, morning noon and night is testament to its quality. It may be called a wine bar but the menu has everything from sushi to lamb chops. Highly recommended

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.
