Excellent Greek food in the heart of Manhattan Beach

This is a nice and classy restaurant. It has a vast menu which includes the typical Greek recipes so I decided to try the octopus as an appetizer and the incredible rack of lamb, which is the specialty of the place. Make sure you complement this with a nice glass of red wine... Opa!

We had dinner at petros last week. We had the saganaki appetizer. Yummy. My husband had moussaka and I had the feta cheese pasta. The shrimp were huge and tender. The server was attentive. Highly recommended. Best for couples.

I am Greek and will rarely recommend a Greek restaurant. I can't say enough good things about Petros!! This is gourmet Greek food with a little California twist. They use only the highest quality ingredients, including their olive oil and feta. Their seasonal peach salad is to die for, and their lamb pasta and lamb paidakia are spectacular. I recommend...

We love this restaurant! It is my family's favorite. We always ask to be seated in the large outdoor patio. During the summer, when peaches are in season we ask for the Arugula and peach salad we add grilled shrimp. It is delicious. Also not to be missed is the and Avgolemon homemade lemon, egg and chicken soup. There is... More

We are picky eaters when it comes to Greek restaurants as we have family in Greece and visit every other year. Petros was excellent! The watermelon salad is different but incredibly refreshing, and I could eat the lamb sandwich every day. Even the simple salad was done perfectly. This was our favorite meal in LA. TIP: Take a taxi/Uber so... More

We've been craving Greek food for a while and after reading the reviews, we decided to go here. The dips were delicious, then we got our mains. We think they missed the mark on Greek flavours and it was way too pricey for the standard you get both on the plate and in the service. Maybe we're just spoilt with... More

Loved the outside patio and the food. I shared some Peperia dip with a friend for starters and then had Chicken Pita plate. I felt it was light healthy fare for lunch. It was wonderful and I look forward to returning soon.

My girlfriend and I decided on dinner at Petros as neither of us had been there in awhile. Reservations went smoothly and we arrived for a 6:45 pm outdoor seating. Service was almost immediate for drinks; our waitress was there every time we needed her to be. My friend ordered a lamb chop rack dinner substituting Caesar salad for arugula... More
