A native Greek chef creates a California-Greek version of his native island favorites. The calamari with almonds and lemon wheels makes the dish divine. The spanikopita is light and has just a hint of dill in the filo to give it its unique quality. Mmmmmmmmm.

It's not just the authentic greek food, or the stellar customer service, or the ambiance of Petros, but the overall dining experience is simply top notch at this restaurant. Imagine this: candlelit tables under a tent-like overhang, in the fresh and salty sea air, people sitting in couples as well as large groups, gathering together to sip wine and delight... More

The service and atmosphere was wonderful. Beautiful outdoor seating. The grilled octopus was phenomenal as were the meatballs. The portion sizes are very large for the price. Our server was very informative when we were asking about different items and how much to order. Will definitely return for another amazing meal!!!

We visited this restaurant upon the recommendation of another traveller. We were very pleased. The food was amazing. The ambience was excellent. The menu offers good value for the cost. We were lucky to see the LA Kings wives dining beside us to celebrate the eve of the Stanley Cup finals.

The bar at Petros is small but a good spot for a pre-dinner drink. The bar staff were attentive and on their game on Saturday night. We've been here a couple of times, so knew what the menu had to offer. Hands down the favorite dish here is the Grilled Octopus - delicious and melt in your mouth, paired nicely... More

They put the same herbs on pita on chicken dishes and on dips. They heard something about herbs , but it doesn't mean that they have to put it in every dish .

I so want to like this place. I love the setting and the location in MB. Great people watching and always a cool vibe. The problem is the food. Maybe it's me, but I've never really had anything that knocks me out or that I want to come back for. Tonight I had the lemon soup (way to overpowered with... More

This was the best dining experience of our 4 day July long weekend to Manhattan beach. The service was great, the decor spectacular, but most importantly the food was outstanding. The grilled calamari/octopus appetizer was a particular standout. A must stop on a vist to Manhattan beach.
