“Just what we were looking for”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 17, 2014 via mobile

Looking for a place for some wine and meza before going out for dinner. Luckily found this place a few blocks away from our hotel thanks to TripAdvisor. Great layout, nice wine and interesting starters. Nice music playing in background and waiter was helpful and informative. Wish we had found it earlier in our stay.

“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 23, 2014

The Truly Amazing Acrobat is hidden from many travellers because the surrounding hotels do not want you to know of this little gem on their door step. Atmospheric, good food, good value and wonderful service makes it a great place to eat or have drinks, coffee, etc. Live music on occasions. Do yourself a favour - get out of your hotel and experience something local.

“great for a drink”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 3, 2014

this place shows what could be achieved with the many neo-classical buildings falling into ruin all over this city: a massive old barn of a place with a 40-foot ceiling (you hardly notice your fellow customers' cigarette smoke), but made to feel cosy with great subdued lighting and friendly, attentive service.

staying in a hotel nearby, we dropped in a couple of times over a weekend; found it great for a drink, great party atmosphere going with live laiko music on Saturday night, but were a little underwhelmed by the food - maybe it's just our personal preference, but we thought the menu was trying a bit too hard on the Masterchef front. Greek food doesn't need artistic squiggles of sauce, lists of ingredients, and tons of balsamic gloop! The cheesecake was really good though.

“Great atmosphere and tasty food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2013 via mobile

Very nice place with good food, beers and drinks. The people working at the Amazing Acrobat are sweet and the atmosphere is laid-back-big-city-coolness. When we were there it was Greeks of all ages coming to eat or drink.
