This place is directly at the beach, with the little island off the coast directly in sight, so a great view (unfortunately it was rather windy the night we were here so we sat inside instead of on the terrace).

If you have trouble finding the restaurant, it is signposted on the main road so you know where to go, but it only features the greek spelling.

I had a filet mignon which was excellent. It was big, tender and very tasty with a rich creamy mushroom sauce. We got a little dessert on the house after our meal which was nice.

One note: the main photo displayed for this location on trip advisor is incorrect, it displays a caravan. The restaurant is absolutely not in a caravan!

We ate here in May 2013 and our return is only 2 weeks away now and my thoughts turn to this perfect Taverna. The location cant be beaten tables are actually on the beach and view out to sea and the islands is amazing, it sets the scene for good food and very friendly service. We ate here every night a group of 7 and on out last day we were joined for a very long leisurely lunch on the balcony with our greek friends, total 14 people. The service was very good and the food all freshly cooked, our greek friends ordered all the food and they praised it very highly, superb. The bill I don't know but everyones comment was that it was excellent value for money. We will see you again on 21May, cant wait.

Can you imagine to have lunch with your feet on the sand in January? It is difficult but it happened to us and we felt really lucky.
Acrogiali tavern on the beautiful Tolo beach not only have a unique location but also a very rich fish menu and, most of all, very well prepared.
The lady that greeted us with a sincere smile, served us always very quickly and efficiently.
Everything we ordered was perfectly cooked and very fresh. The quality of the ingredients was excellent and the presentation simple but really pleasant.
My wife is still talking about our lunch there and I’m looking to book again our table for two in spring to make her a surprise.

We have been visiting Tolo regularly over the years and Taverna Akrogiali is about as close as you will get to heavenly bliss on this planet. The taverna is situated right on the beach, with the tables just a couple of meters from the water’s edge (the name “Akrogiali” apparently translates as, “where the sea meets the land”, or “water’s edge”). The bay of Tolo has several off-shore islands which create a natural harbour where the sea is generally flat-calm and many small, colourful fishing boats are moored. On the far side of the bay you have the mountain range running down the spine of the Argolida peninsula, forming the backdrop to a stunning view and the most wonderful spot to enjoy the great, traditional Greek food on offer. The proprietors, Christos and Katerina are the most hospitable people you could wish to meet and their food is some of the best I’ve come across during my many years of travelling around Greece. Try the fava with olive oil and fresh chopped onion, the aubergine with garlic and tomato, grilled sardines or a plate of fresh, deep fried white bait and wash it down with the excellent local house wine from Nemea. If you’re lucky, you may even hit an evening when Christos’s brother Vaggelis and a few friends come along to play their bouzoukis and sing traditional songs. To sit at a table at Akrogiali laden with good food and wine, with the gentle lapping of the sea and beautiful music is my idea of paradise.

We visit this taverna for the last 3 years. Is always nice to seat by the sea, which is literally 1 meter away from your table. The view is magic.

Always warm and hospitable. Katherina and the the stuff are quite frindly. We tried the best Greek salad and Tsatsiki here.

Gavros (small anchovis) are very good here. House wine is OK here.
The combination of friendliness and good food always bring many people here. Not so easy to get a table in the evening.
