Excellent gyros, one of the best I've had. Had the tabouli that is more parsley than bulgar making it very refreshing and tasty. Eating outside is fun especially when accommodating our dog who got his own water bowl!

Wonderful menu, great flavorful food. The Acropolis Salad is the best! Lunch or dinner, can't go wrong.

A friend took me here for dinner before a baseball game. I really liked this place it was super. Food was perfect, service was outstanding, what more could one ask for. Server was sharp and on the ball. Food came out promptly and server kept tabs on us to make sure we did not need a thing. Definitely recommend.

Stopped here after a visit to Musuem of Modern Art in Folk Art Museum in St Petersburg. This was a day visit to the area and late in the afternoon we were hungry. Happened upon the Acropoli Greek Taverna and decided to have a meal. We were not disappointed. My husband ordered a shrimp wrap sandwich and I ordered the... More

It has been a while since we visited Acropolis only because I had bariatric surgery 6 months ago. The food was fantastic as always. We had the calamari to start...oh so tender and full of flavor! And of course we had their Gyros. Because of my surgery, I am limited with the amount of food I can eat. I have... More

We were in town to see the Holocaust Museum, roam a Central Avenue arts fair and end the day at the Tropicana for a ball game. A very pleasant day. Became hot outside though so we ducked into the Acropolis to cool off and have a bite. Pleasant inside and we decided to take seats at the bar. The bartender... More

We decided to go to the Acropolis during Restaurant Week. When we arrived, I asked the hostess for the Restaurant Week Menu--she didn't know what I was talking about. At least she went to get someone to help. They didn't know either. Finally, they found someone who knew what I was talking about and they brought the special menu. We... More

The Lemon Chicken soup and the gyros well just about everything they offer is great. It is a great dining experience from the wait staff to the hostess to the fun dancing performed by the staff. The food is excellent and you can even take your doggy and sit outside and enjoy a great meal on Central Avenue. It is... More

Over the last 2 years or so I've had three bad experiences with the food served by Acropolis Greek Taverna on Central Ave in St. Petersburg, Florida. My last experience was especially bad, because both my food and my friend's food were entirely unacceptable. My dish had way too much salt (I don't think they rinsed the capers, is my... More
