My wife and I had a wonderful leisurely meal amongst much larger families enjoying their Sunday meal. I f you like eating the Greek way then go here. All staff were brilliant and the price was very reasonable. My wife had never eaten Greek before and was very impressed with th "Akrpolis Meze".

We haven't been here since it was the adorable Candles of many moons ago. The décor has changed - it's quite posh now - but the food is still very good and the service too.

Really can't fault this place, the food is amazing, (huge portions which appeals to my other half) the food quality is second to none, the staff are warm and friendly-attentive but not overbearing and the price is very reasonable. The restaurant is small and therefore sometimes a bit cramped if it's full, which it normally is because the food is... More

We have been past this restaurant so many times and said " we must go there one day"'. Well this week we did. Why did we leave it so long. We were met by very friendly staff and although a Monday night it was busy. We ordered some drinks and then set to the menu. We had already looked on... More

It's always a treat to find a good Greek restaurant. A short walk from our hotel (The Ilfracombe) with Cliffs Pavilion in the middle; very convenient. This is a cosy restaurant with a hint of holiday feel. Nice low lighting. We had a table for two towards the back and by the window. It was initially quiet but got busier... More

Visited the Akropolis before a show at the cliffs. We started with the meze selection which was delicious, only we wished we'd held back a bit because the main was a delicious selection of grilled meat, casserole and vegetables which was all so tasty but we weren't able to eat it all. The staff were friendly and helpful. Thoroughly enjoyed... More

Guys I Think I have reviewed this place before many moons ago but quite honestly its always worth another review............ Great food, great service.

All the dishes were presented in a perfect manner, cooked... More
