We happened upon this Greek restaurant during a pouring rain. What a find! We tried some foods new to us and were very pleased. Nice atmosphere, good service, provided a leisurely meal in a downtown area.

Looking for an interesting place to eat in downtown St Petersberg, Fla? This eclectic area of town didn't look like it offered much of interest for dinner recently--SURPRISE! Great food at good prices, excellent service, live Greek music made big fun--even a belly dancer. The restaurant works for couples, families, small groups. Indoor or outdoor seating. Would go back anytime!

Beautiful morning spent shopping Brocante. With lots of walking we worked up an appetite and wanted to be outside. Acropolis filled the bill across the board. Nice setting on the street with lots to see. Great Greek menu and we all had something different from Avgolemeno soup - one of the best I have had - a huge Greek salad... More

Every time we visit St Petersburg, we make it a point to eat at Acropolis. The staff is always helpful, professional and friendly but of course, it's the food that keeps us coming back again and again! No matter what we order, no matter how busy the restaurant might be, the food is always excellent with more than ample portions.... More

Very good food and casual (in a good sense) service. There was a female Greek dancer and accompanying musician. Family friendly. Large portions. Great fun!

We went into the Acropolis purely by chance as it is opposite the Holocaust Museum where had spent several hours. We were not disappointed as we had a fantastic lunch there. I was surprised by a review 3 earlier about the Chicken Santorini as mine was excellent, well cooked and very tasty. Down to the cook on the day I... More

A friend and I had a fabulous evening here at the Acropolis. I was not sure what to expect as I had already dined in Ybor City at the Acropolis, I was wondering if it was just as good. The answer: Probably Better ! We ordered Lamb chops and Chicken Skewers. The Lamb was charcoal-ed nicely, you could taste the... More

I'll start my review by saying the BEST Hummus, and Tzatziki I've ever had, besides my own. ;-) I always start with The Appetizer Platter, it is so good. :-) The Chicken Gyro is my Fav, it's Delish!! :-) The CRETE burger is also Excellent, and so flavorful. Everything here is so yummy. Great music, and entertainment make it like... More

I usually have the seafood dishes here, they are all very good. Tonight I decided to try the Santorini chicken. I recommend staying away from this dish. It was very bland and nothing to it. Stick with the traditional kebabs and seafood platters. Just disappointed in the dinner. I will come back though
