“A must at Melrose Arch!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 February 2012

We went to Mezepoli after looking at reviews on Tripadvisor... and we were more than satisfied!

We ordered 8 small "meze" (not that small for some of them!!) that we shared while sitting outside, on Melrose Piazza. Food was totally amazing and we even tried to go back the next day, but the place was full. I would recommend to make prior reservation since it's really popular.

All the wine list is available to the glass, which is great if you want to taste a few. Prices are OK considering the area and the quality.

A sure bet!!

“Meze to die for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2012

I have always had a good meal here. I like the relaxed decor, and the large outside eating area. I do find though that sitting inside gets too noisy as nothing to absorb sound, which makes it difficult to hear across a table.
The food is always superb, served hot and fast, and service is good. The owner/host has always been friendly when I have arrived or booked a table.
Pricing of food is acceptable for area and venue

“Georgous range of dishes”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 29 January 2012

Been here twice in the last 2 weeks and I'm addicted. Absolutely beautiful food, good value, very hard to beat in a city of great restaurants.

“Not great value”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 January 2012

You may well wonder how you ended up paying as much as a fine dining meal for a series of average Greek Mezze. Nice location & must be making good money, but not a good place to eat...
