Restaurant was not really busy good ambiance. Interior tasteful and crisp. Waiter can be good but we received average service as it was not busy, had to call him twice for service while he was chatting outside. Food looked good but disappointing as my calamari was cold. Ordered roast potatoes as side dish and it arrived soft and typically heated... More

One of the many things I look forward too when visiting South Africa is the food. Affordable , amazing quality and excellent service is the norm . So when my brother booked a table at Mythos , I was salivating in anticipation . And oh boy, did they disappoint. We waited more than an hour for our meals to arrive... More

The service was good. They just can't get the Moussaka right. It is ALWAYS cold and needs to be sent back to the kitchen for re-warming. A simple dish, "fish & chips", is also spoilt by overcooking the fish. The ultimate restaurant sin. The floor manager with the glasses informs us, "it is how we receive it from HQ. we... More

After a hiatus of approximately one year, my husband and I decided to dine again at Mythos. It was a good decision as the service was attentive without being obtrusive and the Meze platter for 2 , with added Dolmades and creamed spinach was just as we remembered it. Freshly prepared and delicious, washed down with a jug of ice... More

Good cocktails are hard to come by, and we haven't been disappointed by the offering at Mythos. Although the selection isn't large enough to be called a cocktail bar, it offers a good vibe to sit outside with a nice mojito or daiquiri while chatting away or watching shoppers. We felt peckish so ordered the combo of different starters to... More

We enjoyed a wonderful business dinner at Mythos and we had a large group. The staff are very professional and the restaurant is upscale in layout and design. The service was excellent as were the starters and main courses. Excellent taste and value for money. NB --- when we were there we witnessed a few birthday celebrations/dances and breaking of...

We had dinner on a busy Friday night at Mythos. The menu is full of Greek specialties and the wine list is also good. We had grilled calamari (excellent) and some pita bread with different dips. The beef Souvlaki was soft and tender - the Bifteki was lacking the feta cheese (at least that's how I know it from previous... More

Went there with my wife and got a sour welcome at the door after about 30 seconds waiting. A waiter walked right past us to welcome guests behind us. Already disappointed, we were then sat down by a rude lady who took our drinks and food orders. Surprisingly she was quick with the drinks, but we sat a good 50... More

Popped in on my wife's birthday and what a treat it turned out to be!! Despite the fact that the restaurant was fairly full, service was excellent. Exceptional meal and great wine selection. Highly recommended.

A really nice Greek restaurant at Irene Village Mall. Easily accessible either from Irene to the west or from the R21 freeway to the east. Suggest you each select one item from their MEZE menu, and you then share it so that everyone in your party tries a bit of everything. Don't be surprised if you decide to do this... More
