“Will go again!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

I first went here with friends from a study abroad trip in June 2011. Some of my fellow students spoke French so it was much easier to bridge the language barrier. Depending on the night, we had 2-3 menus to choose from, each was a set price. Compared to other restaurants we tried in the area, Acropolis had the best service and food. I traveled to Paris again in December 2012 and recommended the restaurant to my friends. As with the rest of Paris, the atmosphere was different in winter than it was during summer. The food was still delicious but the service was not as good as it was during my previous trip. Overall, I would still recommend the restaurant.

“Avoid this place”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2013

We were enticed into the restaurant by an excellent window display and by someone soliciting us at the door. What a mistake, never again.

The French Onion soup was just passable, the sirloin steak was horrendous and the creme brulee was a very watery custard. My partner’s meal was not much better, in fact he hardly ate anything, his salmon steak was very dry, very thin and had so many bones it too was basically inedible. The house wine for a restaurant in France was a disgrace, while the restaurant had some excellent wines on display you had to purchase a full bottle, quite unreasonable for lunch. The prices were typical of the area, too expensive for poor quality substandard food. Stay away.

“Awful, avoid at all costs”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2013

We were enticed into the restaurant by someone soliciting guests at the door. What a mistake.

The French Onion Soup was watery and tasteless. The pork tenderloin was barely acceptable. The worst of the meal were the mussels, 80% were not open, one was cracked with a long beard attached, and no sauce, just cooked in water. Inedible. The salmon steak was dry and had so many bones it too was basically inedible.

The dessert did not fare much better. Glasses and cutlery not properly cleaned.

And for all this their prices were typical of the area. Way too high.

“Need a Cheap meal out to feed the kids on a paris holiday?”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 14, 2013

Do you need a cheap meal out to feed the kids on holiday ...well this is it. Took some friends here as we like going into the Latin Quarter for a wander and was impressed. You do pay for what you get as the whole area has cheap restaurants with the €15 3 course menus popular with tourists on a budget. We have eaten the big meat skewers at a couple of this style restaurants and these were by far the best as we asked for them rare to medium and they came out perfectly cooked to a medium which was what we really wanted as we learnt by experience they can be overcooked. The greek mixed entree was good and the service was better than most. We will definitely go back as its a cheap night out to feed the kids on a holiday and the food surprisingly good.

“Been to better”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed April 25, 2013 via mobile

Well this was very disappointing. Food was mediocre. Steak was tough and desserts were poor. Having gone to Demi Lune we thought this would be comparable but how wrong were we. Give this one a miss if I was you.
