We have recently been on holiday to Florida (USA) and have found and ate at some really good restaurants, this is no exception. Acropolis was about a 5-10 min drive from where we stayed for a couple of nights at the Wyndham @ Wingates in Tampa. The restaurant was lively and also had a bubbly atmosphere where the staff would... More

It was the first time I went to this restaurant and loved it, not just because of food but also dancing staff. I was surprised to see belly dance and live music on Friday night. They have a different culture, throwing paper napkins into air for celebrations. I witnessed 4 birthday groups when I was there, looks like this place... More

Fun time with colleagues; lots of choices; easy to identify gluten free options. Food was tasty. Service a bit slow due to our large group. Individual checks were accommodated.

Needed someplace quick for lunch and found this restaurant on a lark. It was great. Some of the best falafel ever! Large portions, great service - we were on a tight timetable and they accommodated us no problem. Huge selection wish I lived in Tampa to go more often!

Good Greek food and service at reasonable prices in an attractive setting. Weekend nights have live Greek music and belly dancing. If you want a quiet meal come at other times.

Great place. The decor is more modern not necessarily traditional Greek but I like it. The menu has the traditional foods as well as some newer twists and it was really good. The budget was on point and they have fun. They don't throw plates but napkins and that is creative. However, I would sweep up the napkins more often... More

We stopped by for lunch and ate outside on their airy porch. The restaurant was busy, but service was efficient and friendly. They have a large menu with many authentic Greek dishes and wines. Food was very tasty. All in all, we had a pleasant and enjoyable lunch.

We visited on a Wednesday night. The mussells sppetizers was fantastic. Warm bread was very good. My Pastitsio was dry and by the time our server came to check on us it was cold so I asked for extra sauce and a box. He had the meatballs and they were also good. Everything was just a little slow here and... More

Great Greek Salad - it was out of this world. It was fresh. I liked the Greek tomatoes. The portion is very generous. It has the classic center scoop of potato salad. The booths are comfortable. The wait staff is prompt and courteous. The bar tender makes great drinks.
