In the Greek tradition, you throw your plate after a meal. In appreciation, of course! While a scrumptious meal at Prosopa will have you wanting to throw stacks of empty plates, this is not allowed. Although Prosopa is Greek inspired, it's also influenced by the flavours and tastes of Spain and Portugal where throwing plates is just considered silly. Enjoy a lipsmacking starter platter for four, served with proudly South African passion and grace at Prosopa.
Treat your taste buds to a Mediterranean holiday with a meze (starter) platter for four including Dolmades, Keftedes, Fried Brinjals, Cheese Croquettes, Spanakopita, Fried Falklands Calamari, Skordalia, Tzatziki & Herbed Pita Bread. Prepared to perfection with both the taste buds and the eye in mind, you might even want to take a picture of the food to brag with at work. Yes, it’s just that good.
Whether you choose to sit next to the ultra-romantic fireplace surrounded by the trendy yet sophisticated atmosphere or al fresco on the veranda, a meal at Prosopa is bound to be like something out of a fairytale. Enjoy a bottle of wine off the extensive Diamond Diners Club Award winning wine list and indulge in conversation with the very appreciative friend or friends lucky enough to share in your Prosopa Groupon platter. Though inspired by the foreign, you'll feel very much at home in the relaxed and special restaurant that is Prosopa.

Food fact #223: It’s a widely known fact that strawberries at Wimbledon originated before tennis was played on a court. Tennis players during the 1800’s would be pelted with strawberries by spectators if the game was too boring. This is why on the second day of Wimbledon, all players wear a swimming cap as spectators pelt their strawberries and cream at the losing player.
