Our story

Born out of a passion for expressing the Mediterranean way of life in a fresh, modern context Mezepoli has over the past 12 years become well-loved for its consistently outstanding quality of food, relaxed yet sophisticated atmosphere and exceptional service. The restaurants boast a vivacious atmosphere and offer no-fuss urban dining at its’ most chic.


The beautifully designed spaces and central locations of the restaurants at Melrose Arch and Nicolway, two of the city’s most prestigious shopping and leisure centres, make Mezepoli a favourite for all occasions, from business lunches to celebratory dinners. 


Created by the late Angelo Haitas and Margarita Tsangaris-Scherf, founders of Plaka restaurants, Mezepoli continues to be one of Jozi’s best-run eateries. Important to our customer experience are our staff members, many of whom have been part of the team since the early Plaka years and who have climbed the ranks and developed into leadership roles. We believe strongly in investing in the people behind our brand and this shines through in the attentiveness and professionalism of our team.
