We reserved a table so we could hear the singing in the piazza at Melrose Arch and once again enjoyed a marvelous meal! The service is always discretely attentive and we reminisced about our second son's wedding over a bottle of Babylonstoren. (If you have not been there when in the Western Cape, keep a day for that amazing place!)... More

Good food and service...but nothing stood out as amazing. I have not been back - nothing offensive - it was simply an inoffensive greek / Med. Restaurant

We had a pleasant dinner, the quality of the cuisine was good. It was a pity that the service was not so good. We asked twice for the wine and the waiter forgot to serve one dish. It arrived late when my friend had already finished. The manager apologized and offered one dessert. We appreciated this.

Tapas-style Mediterranean fare at a decent price. We shard several small plates, e.g. squids, eggplant,chicken and beef souvlaki and all of it was delicious. Seating on the terrace right at he piazza was great and probably better as it gets noisy when it's brimming :)

I am all about the food and the food here is just fabulous. I always go for meze and to me these dishes are just AMAZING: salmon, fillet, zucchini and parmesan, village salad, calamari. We often visit with our kids and just love it!

A few of us enjoyed and shared a delighful range of mediteranean dishes this week. Attentive service. Keep a close eye on on what you pay for wine; latter pricey but the food really great value and different.

We ordered a selection of meze, some of which were quite pricy. They seem to have a huge staff complement both front and back of house, but everyone seemed to work well together. You could see that the staff had actually received some training, and the service was good. Wine prices were actually so high compared to other laces that... More
