After visiting the beach of Aegiali in the afternoon, we felt like visiting this small restaurant near the diving center.

Upon arrival, a young lady gave us the menus and informed us about the dishes of the day. We order a greek salad which is a no miss in any restaurant. We also ordered for starters a potato nest with bacon and mushrooms. It was great!

For main dishes my wife ordered a chicken souvlaki which was served with pita bread and french fries on the side. I chose shrimps with ginger and chili served with rice on the side.

Our table was in the inside garden, surrounded by a big beautiful tree. We think there was some kind of exhibition going on, since there were paintings on the wall of the same painting style.

The overall experience was great, we give it 5 stars because we didn't expect a restaurant like this among the other taverns on the island.

The small restaurant in the port of Aegiali is supposed to be artistic as it hosts art exhibitions and all tables and chairs are beautifully painted. The environment and the atmospheric music were enough for us to choose it.
The first bell came from the salad as in Amorgos the traditional cheese for the greek salad is "xinomitzithra" while in this restaurant, it was feta cheese.
So, instead of greek salad we ordered another salad with beans, tomatos and onion.
This was the worst salad i have ever seen in Greece! In the left side of the plate huge tomato rings, in the right side huge onion rings and in the middle a cup of beans. They could at least chop everything in small pieces !!
The second salad with zucchini, was so cold that we never found out whether it was boiled or fried.
For main course the two of us had lamb in the oven, probably cooked the day before, while the other two had average mousakas.
The service was acceptable but the whole experience was really disappointing. The WC was also in a mess.

My french are very poor to write a French review so lovely friends of Amorgos try the authomatic translation !

POSITIVE
+located along a quaint side street behind the port of Aegiali.
+option of eating on a table on the sidewalk, patio or inside the gallery.
+starter of eggplant with bacon and cheese was delicious.

- NEGATIVE
-young lady serving us was incompetent and seemed annoyed of our questions.
-Patatato was bland and swimming in fat while the pork roast was hard as a stone.
-expensive: an eggpalnt starter, 2 meat mains, 3 glasses of wine, and 2 bottles of sparkling water for €42! averages in other restaurants during our stay were €30.

Acropolis 12 has an interesting concept but the service and the food are not up to standard. Maybe a glass of wine/beer and an appetizer while you check the gallery might work but don't stay any longer - Have dinner somewhere else.
