Very good authentic Greek restuarant, recommended

Not many Greek places locally and this is by far the best and most authentic. I have dined here several times, for both lunch and dinner and have never been disappointed. The classic Moussaka is recommended. The only downside is at weekends its gets so busy and very cramped, practically sitting... read more

Popped in on a Sunday afternoon and given a table. Fanatic meaty halloumi and flavoursome tahini to start. Good, friendly not overbearing service. Good main. Really tender kleftiko and souvlakia. Didn't have a dessert as I wanted a Rossi cone. House white was very nice and good value. Very reasonable. Will take visitors from the big smoke there.

Visited this restaurant three days ago and because it was a Monday evening we thought it wouldn't be very busy but we were wrong as several tables were occupied. Despite being busy the staff were very attentive and the food was excellent. It was well presented and good size portions. Need less to say we will be returning.

We went as a birthday treat. Starters were huge (we had Taramasalata, Tzatziki and Houmous). Would have liked the Meze main course but nobody else in party would (it needs two to share). My main course was not as I ordered and again it would have been more than I could manage even had it been the right one (the... More

12 of us went and wasn't disappointed! I ordered the lamb cutlets and was amazed that 8 were on the plate. The food was plentiful, the staff very helpful and accommodating, could not fault it and have booked to go again!!!

Akropolis is quite nice. The decor is blue and white, attractive and not too big a place. The menu is varied, with Greek items, plus other non- Greek foods (rib eye steak, stroganoff, etc.), but items we had were good: both lamb dishes, plus the scallops which were nice. The service was friendly, fast, and pleasant. Although it was a... More

This restaurant is decorated well, the staff are friendly, the food is great and there was a singer on the Saturday night which created a good atmosphere.
