Excellent food and atmosphere and authentic Greek food. Waiter was excellent and attentive. Food was perfect. I had Chicken Souvlaki and my wife had Karpathos Chicken and both meals were excellent. I recommend this restaurant.

When I'm in South Tampa in Ybor City this is the place that I've got to go! The food is incredible. Love the atmosphere love the music that's playing love the place. The Greek food is incredible. I brought many many friends here and everyone has loved what they've ordered. Even if you've never tried Greek food you will love... More

Atmosphere fun can be loud on weekends but still fun Great food Great prices 2 for 1 Sangria's :-) Defiantly try the Chicken Rhodes or any of the Gyro dishes. Chicken Lemon Rice soup is good as well as the Jambalaya Belly dancers on weekends as well as live greek music Fun place for all

I have always like the Acropolis. It is a very casual fun festive spot. If the weather is good it is a perfect place to sit outside, people watch and take in all the life Ybor has to offer. I enjoy the greek salad, taziki sauce with pita bresd is yummy and the branzino is nice.

Acropolis is worth the trip to Ybor City. The food is excellent and reasonably priced. Lunch is excellent, and dinner is lively as the wait staff breaks plates and occasionally has live music and a belly dancer for entertainment. The spinach dip is a great starter, and the Gyro platter cannot be beat.

Got the sampler platter (which was excellent) to split with my girlfriend and we didn't come close to finishing our gyros (also excellent). Plus they had 2 for 1 sangria. What a great start to a Saturday in Ybor.

First time visiting the area and Acropolis Greek Taverna seemed like one of the nicest places in the area. The food was great, the bread was really good and the spread was delicious. The shishkabob was cooked to perfection, as well as the lamb chops. Our server was nice and polite. The only thing I did not like was the... More
