“Very good seafood and fish”
Reviewed May 19, 2014

Atmosphere-wise, a very simple place, but the food was delicious and good value. Portions are huge. Based on our visit, the place is very popular with locals.

“Pretty good!”
Reviewed May 18, 2014 via mobile

We ordered the Greek salad which you can never go wrong with. For the main course we had the mixed sea food platter for 25 euro. It came with grilled octopus, squid, shrimp, cuddle fish (My favorite- they were fried and the batter was delicious!), anchovies and some other fried small fish which I'm unsure what they were. It was all fresh of course. Also with French fries, tomatoes and cucumber. Very good! They gave a little dessert at the end which was some some sort of cinnamon pastry that reminded me of baklava but tasted nothing like it. It was my favorite bite of the whole meal... And of course they finished with a generous shot of raki. Would recommend!

“Superb lunch”
Reviewed May 3, 2014

As of May 2014 this restaurant has had 470 reviews and has a 4.5 rating. My visit though was not based on these reviews but recommended by a local . All I did was ask him where he goes to eat fish -and he said Akrogiali..end of story!
We had the mixed platter which included octopus, shrimp, fish, squid and kalamari. Every single item was cooked perfectly and most importantly was fresh. The Salad was superb as was the house wine. All in all a great dining experience all for under €40 for two.
I would strongly recommend a visit. Word of advice ..avoid the tourist trap restaurants by the lighthouse, bad food bad service and overpriced.
