Enjoyed the food but visited on a Saturday night and it was very crowded and table are too close together. Hard to have a conversation when so close to other tables. Noise levels were very loud.

Visited for Sunday lunch today with a large group of friends. Fabulous food, generous portions and friendly staff. Lots of choice on the menu. Some of us had the meze, fabulous and great value. Will make sure return and introduce other friends.

Had the garlic bread with cheese and pitta with three dips. Bit too much considering the main course which was beef stroganoff was the best I've ever eaten. My good lady had the klefteko which was equally as nice. Struggled to finish what with the bottle of rose as well but all in all a very satisfying meal for two.... More

This was our first visit to Akropolis,as a surprise birthday meal for my girlfriend. We were a party of 6. The staff were very friendly and polite.
