My wife & I have searched hard for really tip-top Greek cuisine and this is the real deal. This establishment has a very attractive outside area (but still inside the Design Quarter) with winter gas heaters and an inside area. But the shining crown of this restaurant is the very personal supervision of the proprietress whose food is exquisite - from the mezze to the lamb kleftiko to the desserts. As you leave, you're thinking "when can I come back?!" The service is excellent and the prices are not disproportionate to the quality.

My wife and I rarely have an opportunity to meet for lunch on a Monday. Happily we decided to meet at Design Quarter. There we saw that Mythos has lunch specials at R60 each which include steak, fish, chicken, meatball and other options. We ordered different options and shared each - A great decision that added to the overall pleasure of the food served. A wonderful experience in an understandably busy restaurant.

The staff always helpful and can recommend a dish. Service excellent, and although the restaurant gets busy there is never a long wait for your meal. The special are good value for money. The steak is highly recommended.

I have been to every Mythos in South Africa

This Mythos is by FAR the best one in the country.

The food is fresher, the taste is tastier just like you in GREECE and most of all the atmosphere is amazing, and most of all the friendly staff make you feel at home.

The best Greek cuisine one can find in the whole of South Africa without a doubt.

Stopped by for a very good meal at dinner time one evening. Food was wonderful, a good amount for the price and arrived nice and hot. Staff was friendly and service was prompt.

Stopped by a few days later for lunch and it was a whole completely different event. Service was extremely poor and very slow. Lunch took over 45 minutes to arrive, which was surprising since I ordered a lunch special. Meal arrived ice cold and the chicken was very dry, almost like it sat in the kitchen the whole time.

I’ll leave it up to you, Good Luck.
