Greek restaurant in westcliff

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.

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

All positive from me about the Akropolis; I haven't been for a while and I'm not sure why really, but it was even better than I remember. I like the style of Eastern Med food so the humous, taramasalata, breads, salads, dolmas and dips were all excellent. We followed it up with lamb kleftico, beef stifado, a chicken dish with... More

My daughter and I had sword fish which was lovely , however 3 of the party had chicken kebabs. These were very dry and tasteless. We have had chicken kebabs at many Greek and Turkish... More

I used this restaurant a few weeks ago and had one of their Meze menu's. The staff were welcoming, friendly and attentive. The food was plentiful and very tasty. Today, I returned only to be greeted by a very unfriendly waitress who had to shout in order to be heard over the loud music playing in the background. I ordered... More
