We visited this restaurant last night, the food was delicious. We went as a group of 9 and were sat near the musician. He was good and added to the evening.

Celebrated a friend's birthday here recently. We ordered the Akropolis meze and it was fantastic. There was so much food we couldn't eat all of it and we are all big eaters. Only two negatives - we would have liked a selection of pastries rather than one choice and the live singer was not very good. BUT we are being... More

We went here for my birthday and it was amazing. The staff are friendly and attentive and the food is delicious. It's value for money too. There was a live singer who was brilliant in fact we've booked him for our forthcoming wedding. Highly recommend this lovely restaurant.

Had driven past this restaurant many times but never eaten here. Couldn't get booked in anywhere else prior to going to the theatre so thought would give it a try. Such a friendly welcome by staff eating area small but very cosy. Staff very efficient and helpful. Food was very good,tasty and just as we ordered.

Have been here many times over the years, (Going back to when it was called Candles inn) and we have never been disappointed. The Meze is great with plenty of pitta and dips to start, don't go too mad on these otherwise you won't be able to eat all the different fish and meat courses that follow, which you can... More

Six of us had the Akropolis Meze, I think we all could have easily filled up on the first course which was an excellent selection of pitta and dips, however don't do it because there is an awful lot more to follow! Every sort of Greek fish and meat dishes all authentically cooked. Throughout the meal a guitarist played and... More

We went early but by the time we left people were queuing out the door waiting for tables which... More
