This evening when asked what I felt like for dinner, my response was 'sushi'. Given that there was a vegetarian in our group it was decided that Mezepoli was the place to go, and a perfect choice it was.

Having booked to sit in the covered outside area, we were perfectly warm in spite of the cool Johannesburg night air. Kelvin/Tendayi was our attentive waitron, always close by, but never intrusive.

We started with two sushi platters, one vegetarian and one not, and these were exceptionally tasty. Having been given time to 'digest' our starters we moved on to our mains. Between the bocconcini, haloumi, spanakopita, jalapeños, calamari with feta and prosciutto everyone was thoroughly content.

Having enjoyed our tanqueray and pimms drinks we felt dessert would be a bridge too far and we declined another look at the menu. The kitchen however felt that this was not to be and provided a complimentary plate of slices of sweet orange. We were reluctant to leave our table and did so with much regret.

A very special evening indeed, and given how much we had enjoyed, liquid and otherwise, the cost of about R350 per person was very reasonable.

We will be back.

Lovely fresh food with plenty of options and good portion sizes.

Even in winter the team arranged heaters so we could comfortably sit outside.

Only criticism would be that it took forever to take our order but that aside the waiter was very helpful and the meal thoroughly enjoyable.

Great Greek/ Mediterranean restaurant. Nice variety dishes and great wine list.
Have enjoyed the atmosphere both times that we have been there. We will definitely be going back there.

Mezepoli is one of my favorite restaurants ever.
The restaurant has a great ambiance and makes you feel like you could be in Greece. There is food to choose from for everyone, whether vegetarian or not. Great service and always spotless

We had a great time trying out various tastes and textures from the extensive menu. Some of the dishes were very small and rather pricey, e.g the baby marrow with grilled cheese. The chicken livers were not as good as their claims, but then the spanakopita was fabulous and so too the baby tomato, mozzarella and basil salad. The service was friendly, but do not be in a hurry when you go there. I felt it was a little lacking in atmosphere and noisy, even though it was not full on the Sunday evening. Even so, we had a lovely time and although I am not dying to go there again, will give it another try.
