This restaurant worth the visit. Fair prices, excellent food and very warm service, always supervised by the owner, lovely Mr. Trasso. You have to choose your main dish directly in the kitchen - don't miss delicious mussaka and the amazingly well cooked lamb. Desserts are also tasteful, especially the galactobuireco, but all of them are just great. Portions are huge,... More

I went here once as I really wanted to try some food from my home country and see what it is like in Brazil. Surprisingly this restaurant is very original, some classical Greek dishes. I was a little bit disappointed with the quality of the food though, it's not one of the better Greek restaurants I've been to. It's really... More

We have just had an early dinner at this old-time eatery and are happy to report that nothing has changed. It is still located in the garment district, still has the faded posters of tourist sights in Greece, still make you go to the kitchen to pick the dish you want, still has the same cheap tables and chairs, still...

Great, traditional Greek food in São Paulo. Come early or later than usual eating time, normally it is really crowded during weekend! Do not expect comfort. It is about the experience. There you will find (really find, there is no menu in the table, stand up and go choose your food! :)) a great deal of Greek food. Sea food... More

I had read a lot of reviews and articles about this place - so a visit was long overdue. I visited the restaurant on a very very hot summer afternoon and was lucky not to wait for too long - there is no much room for waiting inside, and the temperature outside the restaurant was unbearable. Do not expect any... More

Acropolis is a long time established restaurant by "Mr. Trassos", a greek immigrant with an amazing life story, and a lifetime dedication to this place. Food is authentic and very well prepared. Although it is ready - the customer is directed to the kitchen where he sees and picks his dish - the food is always of great quality. Usually... More

when strolling through the Bom Retiro area, I fell on this place that was recommended in the last TAM Magazine. The owner stood at the entrance and guided potential guests inside. The decoration is 200% Greek, instead of a printed menu the guests enquire about available dishes directly at the counter to the kitchen. I had risotto with sea food... More

Well, I had the opportunity to visit this famous restaurant, commanded by a very friendly old man that stands in front of the restaurant to receive visitors. The place is tiny, but cozy. The main course, a plate called mussaká is a must. But this is the only good thing... the menu is expensive for regular meals... you may spend... More

I'm used to frequent this restaurant since the early 80's and always "Greek" (the owner) is a easy figure there on daily basis. His attention to the attendees, to the cuisine, to the organization, is always present there. It's normal to say about a person with, let's say, 60yo... 70yo... but note he's the unbelievable 98yo. The cuisine remain the... More
