“The Best Restaurant and Restaurant owner in Kefalonia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

The Acropolis was somewhere me and my wife knew nothing about when we landed on the island of kefalonia in may 2010! in 2010 me and my fiance at the time decided to get married in Kefalonia even though neither of us had ever been to the island before, so we set about booking a stay on the island to check it out and looked at renting a large villa in Pessada. once we arrived in Kefalonia we were there a few days and we went to see the villa where the new owners were opening the villa for the season. The owners Mike and Eileen then gave us loads of ideas etc after we told them of our sketchy plans, they then told us about the Acropolis and Denis their friend. so me and my partner went done to see him and chatted about what we wanted and he said no problem come back we we arrive for the wedding in 2011!!! After we had seen the restaurant and spoke with Denis we decided this was the place so we set up the rest of the wedding around the restaurant. So in June 2011 we arrived back in Kefalonia and went to the Acropolis with our plans for a meal etc for 30 people and what we wanted, Denis sat us down and asked us re colours,flowers and food. Denis said he would do all the decoration and sort the flowers and all the food for the night. He decorated the restaurant in lots of Pink (the wifes choice) organza type material and candles and flowers etc and decorated all the tables for us when we arrived Then Denis told us we had our own Waitreses all night and started the food and OMG!! did we have food so many guests said it was the best meal/wedding they have ever been to for food it was amazing!! also Denis had arranged for the Band which normally played the night after to play on our wedding night which was brilliant! the whole night was perfect. me and my wife and other family memebers went back a few times in the week as Denis and the restaurant was so good.

Me and my wife cannot wait to return back to Kefalonia and the Acropolis in the next couple of years.

If anyone reads this and goes to see Denis please say hello from Simon & Kelly we did send him a thank you letter of ourselves in a photo with him at the restaurant but cant ever say thank you enough for such a great job..

Basically visit here!!

“A Real Gem”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2012

This year was our first time to Kefalonia and visited this restaurant on more than one occasion. The food was perfect and the Staff were really friendly. Dennis, Dianne and Tony make everybody welcome and make your time there enjoyable. We will definately be back.

“"THE BEST"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2012

Have been visiting Kefalonia for the past 20 years and since having our villa built in 2006 near to Svoronata have been regular visitors to Acropolis. The food is superb and top quality. Dennis is such a lovely guy and goes that extra mile to make sure you have a lovely evening.
We didn't think it could get much better but with the addition of the lounge bar you can have a chill before and after your meal in beautiful surroundings. The bar has been done superbly and is such a comfortable & friendly place to relax in. Dianne & Tony are very friendly and having spent much of May there aswell as August we can't wait to return in October !!!!!!!

“Best in Kefalonia”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012

We have been to svoronata twice now and have visited the restraunt every time more than twice. The food is perfect and the staff are absolutely brilliant. They are so friendly, especially the manager Dennisious, who i have become a friend of. He is one of the most honest people and even brings free drinks every so often after meals. The food is unbelieveable. I would strongly recommend a veal steak. Comes in fresh every 2-3 days as Dennis goes into the capitol of kefalonia - Argostoli - every single morning to get the most fresh meat available at the top butchers. Nicest meal of the holiday and a great way to round off any type of experiance you have in kefalonia. even if you are a couple of miles away. VISIT ACROPOLIS.

“Easily the best in the area”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2012 via mobile

Excellent food, excellent value. Nothing seems to be too much trouble for Dionisius (Dennis), the owner. If you're visiting the area the Acroplois is an absolute must. If, or more likely when, we go back (we have just returned but were there in 2009 & visited the Acropolis quite a few times then also) we will definitely be eating there again.
