We visited this taverna twice in November and were very impressed by quality, value and service at this wonder seafood restaurant. Then we headed south for 3 months. On our way back through we went back tonight and had fantastic saganaki mussels - wow! Huge mussels with very tasty sauce followed by complimentary raiki and dessert. Must try

We live in nearby Megala Chorafia and love the ambience of this stretch of beach and the views from its restaurants. When our favourite was closed one lunchtime this week, we decided to try out Akrogiali. The service was very friendly and attentive and the food was excellent. We are not very partial to seafood so selected non-seafood dishes. All... More

Akrogialli is another of the excellent places to eat, the difference her is that they don't specialize in seafood but other traditional Greek dishes. As ever the service is good and friendly serving lovely Greek food at excellent prices. This is another of the Myrtos restaurants I return to on a regular basis.

Mussels they served us were not fresh that made us sick for a week. We could not eat any seafood for two weeks, the simple thought of seafood was making us puking thanks to Akrogiali. Besides, they served us frozen cuttlefish even if the menu was saying that it was fresh cuttlefish. Please avoid Akrogiali for your own guts' sake!

Walked all the way from the harbour to locate this restuarant to seek for the view and food. Standard of food lived up to its reputation. Enjoyed the seafood dishes, the baked prawn with cheese, cuttlefish and fish. The menu offers a variety of seafood incl. various quality such as frozen vs fresh with different price.

Very nice restaurant near the sea. We visited there in afternoon and the view by the window was amazing. We love the seafood pasta and risotto. Greek salad was also nice. This is definitely a better choice for seafood than the restaurants near the old harbor! 20 minutes walking is worthwhile, the view on the road is great!

Everything was great, starting from extremely pleasant and professional service, going through excellent fresh food and good wine, finishing at fantastic view and atmosphere. We came back many times. And will come back again.
