The Akropolis restaurant was an excelent dining experience. Top quality food, and top quality staff. The warm welcome made us feel at home. The staff were very helpfull and couldn't do enough to help us. The owners are very lovely people, who have always time for their diners, staying to chat with them and tending to every need.

I must admit that we are regulars at this restaurant and are therefore a bit biased but to blame the restaurant because a previous party was late leaving a certain table and the weather was bad as DISGRACEFUL is a bit much. Perhaps Roger S should have booked an earlier table, just because you are the first booking for that... More

We wanted to try a typical Greek restaurant prior to our visit to Santorini in September. It was very noisy as only a small restaurant and there was a surprise wedding party so even noisier. The food was average. Everything seemed to be served with a side salad, even the meatballs for starters. I wouldn't expect to have meatballs, tomato... More

Greek food has a lot more to offer than the usual humous. My family and I tried the mezze set menu, we were overwhelmed with the amount of food, we tried everything and it was delicious! We had lots of different courses and it was nice to try lots of traditional food. The restaurant itself was a little bit cramped,... More

Visited the restaurant on a Saturday night. The food was average apart from the Kleftico which was very tasty and well cooked. The atmosphere was not authentic. The music was much too loud and too anglicised for a Greek restaurant. Won't be rushing back. There are much nicer restaurants in Southend.

Five of my family members dined here last Saturday September 27th and we thoroughly enjoyed the experience. The place was crowded but the happy staff kept their cool and smiled constantly. It really buzzed and we were happy to be amongst it all. The food was delicious and we all enjoyed our meals and the wines and beers, also the... More

Quite a small Greek restaurant and tables close together. Having said that the food was excellent. It arrived promptly and was served by lovely friendly staff. We went on a Saturday evening and all tables were taken so very busy. Chap with a guitar entertained us with easy listening songs. All in all a very good experience.

Visit after the matinee for a great value and well cooked meal. Try the Mezze and sample some Greek wine - both excellent quality and value. Service was excellent as well.
