Food was very very average , service was ok but this place is not for me enormous portions it is near the cliff Pavillion and whenever I've passed it has been busy and I think it has been there for years .

Visited Akropolis before seeing a show at the Cliffs. Stupidly never booked anywhere but tried this restaurant and so glad we did. Looked busy but they've found us a table. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and appeared happy. Starters of Garlic bread with cheese (not very Greek or Cypriot I know) and Pitta bread and dip - Tsatsiki. Both were... More

We visited the restaurant for Mum's birthday, her choice as we had had a really good time a couple of years ago when we had all enjoyed an evening of meze and guitar music. Our second visit did not disappoint, the meze is fantastic value with lots of different flavours to try and to our surprise and pleasure, the guitarist... More

Good food, polite and helpful staff. Good atmosphere and staff coped very well with some 'happy' christmas diners. Excellent guitarist / vocalist, would recommend to all and will hopefully return one day.

Had to wait ages to be asked if we wanted a drink and then ages for our order to be taken. Food OK nothing special. We had been here a few years ago and as... More

My wife and I have been to Akropolis a few times now and every time we've been it's always been great food! It's always busy and they still manage to find you a table, it's got a great vibrant atmosphere, sometimes live music and big parties of people but it adds to the ambiance of the place! If you go...

6 of us went here for my birthday. It was a great evening. Most of us went for the Akropolis meze set menu. Loads of food - meze starters of houmous, taramasalata, tsatziki, potato salad, egg mayo, tuna mayo, beetroot salad, and pita. If anything, we could have down without the tuna and egg (there was a lot of it... More

After walking past this restaurant many times, we finally decided to book a table for a Saturday with family. The food was superb, 4 of us opted for the Meze and we were not disappointed. Lots of food, brought up in stages so you had time to enjoy each part of the meal. The only downside for us was that... More

Wanted somewhere new to celebrate our 28 years together and eventually settled on this restaurant. Positive start with the appearance, ambiance and service but this was spoilt by the fact that after our meal we sat for 35 minutes with not one of the 4 waitresses offering us desserts or coffee, 6 other tables were while we sat there. Eventually... More
