Ample delicious Greek food and inexpensive too

Had lunch in this near downtown eatery. I have only myself to blame for the very spicy hot chicken dish as it was well and truthfully advertised on the menu. Did not realize Greek food could compare with Habenaro seasoned Mexican food. But, I like spicy food, perhaps a bit less so than this one... read more

Took my dad and his wife who were visiting from out of state and liked the sound of a good Greek dinner. My husband and I have eaten at other locations (me at three and he at two) but this was our first time in St. Pete and we both thought it was the best yet! Our server Erica was... More

It is a short walk from our downtown apartment, and we love the food here. And every hour or so, the staff does some Greek dancing that's both fun and entertaining.

The Acropolis was recommended by a friend. So when we had out of state company visiting we had the opportunity to visit. Delicious food, great service and wonderful entertainment.

The service was excellent as we were presented with both a brunch and lunch/dinner menu. Our meals were excellent and hot and their homemade rice pudding was incredible. We look forward to returning.

The creamed chicken lemon rice soup is absolutley yummy. I wanted to lick the bowl. Fresh bread and, I believe, a yourgurt spread was such a pleasant surprise. The Spanakopita was like a meal! It came with feta cheese and kalamata olives. So glad we stopped for a snack. Dustin, our waiter, couldn't have been more attentive!!

Give yourself an extra 20 minute head start and try this downtown place just 5 minutes from the Trop. Forget ballpark food. A solid menu of Greek favorites, nightly specials, good service and very tasty dishes. The salad that accompanied my entree was up to the task as were the Greek meatballs. Don't think twice, try it.

The food was excellent. We had "flaming cheese" for the first time. It had a very pleasant flavor. The texture was exactly like you would expect the cheese inside a nice thick grilled cheese sandwich. Just scoop up the hot melted cheese and place it on the accompanying pita bread. The spinach pie was as good as it gets-great thin... More

We had a dinner party of 40 for my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. They put us in the upstairs area which was perfect - not as loud as the lower floor so everyone could hear each other, but still fun atmosphere. The staff was very good, the food was excellent. They kept bringing one thing after another, all of which... More
