Great Greek Restaurant

Petrie is a great Greek restaurant at Metlox in Manhattan Beach. They have very fresh fish selections, Greek specialties, along with other great meat and seafood and pasta. My wife loves their lemon soup. Prices are fairly high, but I've always had great service, quality food, and nice experiences... read more

I just met my sister and her family here for dinner on Friday night. What an excellent find! This is a fresh and delightful take on Greek cuisine and we're Greek so we are hard to please! Get the dip sampler (truly the best Tzatziki I've had) and the Tiropita were great. My husband and I had the rack of... More

We often go to this Manhattan Beach restaurant when visiting. Eight of us sat outside and enjoyed a long dinner meal with traditional Greek soup, appetizers, and entrees. Kids played in plaza area so we could keep an eye on them. Great time for all.

Absolutely loved the food at this restaurant. You can tell that the owner takes pride in his foods - simple ingredients and wholesome food. My favorite item off the menu is the Grilled Octopus with Beets! The plate is beautiful and full of color! The entree portion is always favorable and the food quality never suffers.

It was too chilly in the evening for us to enjoy the patio even with the heaters going, so we dined inside. The restaurant is attractive with subdued colors and many candles lit. The food was very good. The ladies with me had the rack of lamb. I had meatballs and mashed potatoes. The wine selection was good, but one... More

Consistent, varied Greek standards updated, imaginative California takes on Greek dishes, a decent wine list, nice outdoor terrance, good and friendly wait staff. We go there when in Manhattan Beach and it hasn't disappointed.

The restaurant is located in a courtyard off the main drag, which made it a little quieter (it was Halloween), good when I had been travelling all day. Outside seating was nice, wait staff was very friendly, even to costumed children who came in. Food was terrific, and it had a bar that clearly drew some of the young professionals... More

This was my first visit to this eatery. It was highly recommended, so I took a large group of visitors there. The location is great (just a block from the beach), although difficult to get to if one is not staying in the area. The 405 freeway is tricky during dinner hours. The menu is varied. The eggplant dip was... More

Why is it that we are all sitting indoors in the beach cities instead of enjoying the sunshine while we dine outside? Oh, legislation, that's why. Not at Petros! You can enjoy lovely, creative food and a beautiful wine list while sitting out on the patio. The only problem for Petros is that it's so enjoyable we don't even want... More

I couldn't get in on the weekend but had a lovely seat at the bar for dinner on Sunday night. Big menu and good drinks.
