We visited this establishment yesterday
And honestly really surprised by how good the food was
I think they had just reopened from being closed for the Xmas or New years break
As there were a lot of items that we were told were not available yet
Kleftico
Baklava
Rice pudding ect
Which was disappointing but we made due
I had a Yiro in Pita which was delicious
Family all shared Meze style food
Chicken and Lamb souvlaki
Calamari (really good flavor)
And their hand cut fries were also just perfect.
Service was attentive and quick
Food was great

It's an old school Greek restaurant with good food

We went for a lunch and the year end functions were everywhere. Not a seat left do pls book a few days in advance.

The meze platter was incredible, pita, Greek specialties dolmades, spanakopita, chicken livers, prawns and lamb chops.
We had men struggling to finish.
Stand out in Johannesburg would be the Prawns, I haven't seen, ate such beautifully prepared prawns in years.

Loved it, great for get togethers. Work, family or friends. But crowded and noisy like a Greek family.

As a Texan living in east Africa, this place is a real Mexican feast! I found it on trip advisor and was needing a Mexican food fix. It's a casual place in a good part of Joburg near Sandton. The food and drinks and fabulous. I've tried all their los mas pequenos and have never been disappointed. Service is efficient and friendly. I come here every time I'm in Joburg.

If you're looking for authentic Greek food then Parea is for you. The food is excellent. It's always full so be sure to book. There are loads of regulars so if you become one, you'll be part of the Parea family. It's family run and the father-and-son team do a wonderful job of making sure the patrons get what they need. Friday and Saturday nights are filled with vibrant entertainment so book now if a good vibe is your thing. They can handle crowds so the more the merrier. Without Parea the little suburb of Illovo wouldn't be the same.

I had my 40th birthday party here and it was a special night. Try them out for your special occasions.
