“Great Dining at last in Bathurst NSW for All”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

At last on my frequent visits to Bathurst I can really look forward to a great meal. No more having expensive pseudo "modern cuisine" with bad service and noise. The Acropole has risen from the ashes of the previous owner and is now once again run by the family who ran it so well years ago. They pride themselves on fresh ingredients and made to order cooking - and original family recipes including their famed lemon meringue pie and baked cheesecake - as well as yummy Greek baklava etc.
This visit I brought friends along too and the word is obviously spreading that this is what good food is all about - the restaurant was fairly humming at lunchtime - all ages and types of locals and visitors alike.
The meals are affordable and genuine, there is carpet on the floor so there is a background hum of happy people and no scaping of chairs and loud voices.
It can be as posh or as low key as you yourselves make it - whether for an after sport visit for a milkshake or a barista quality latte or a great occasion dinner.


So on your next trip to or through the Central West town of Bathurst - come and relax at this restaurant right on the main corner of town, and enjoy the unique ambience of the gloriously restored Acropole and it genuine quality meals.

“Returned to Original”
Reviewed August 4, 2013

It is such a landmark restaurant in town, and it has been great to see it restored to how I remembered it 40 years ago. Lunch specials are good value and its great to still be able to sit at a window seat and watch the Bathurst bustle go by.

“Very clean and great atmosphere!”
Reviewed July 9, 2013

I visited the Acropole recently and was so happy to see that it's was turned back to the way it was years ago. It was recently venerated all seats restored and a beautiful new carpet also all the terrible timber was removed from the bar area. Great meals reasonably priced , great service, Great atmosphere!

“Poor service, absent food”
Reviewed July 6, 2013

I went for lunch with a party of 6. There were no tables that could seat 6, so our options were a squishy oval table for 5 plus and ezra chair, or two tables with an aisle between them We went squishy.
After 15 minutes with no menu, one of us tried to catch the attention of the waitress as she passed. We were rudely given the brush off. Another waitress came to our aid with menus.

We ordered, again the waitress was rude, no eye contact, walked away while we were checking the order. 3 meals were delivered, not great quality. We waited . And waited. After 10 we were told the remaining ones were being cooked. As mine was a salad sandwich we found this surprising. After another 10 minutes we gave up and left. While paying for the meals that had arrived we were "accidentally" charged 10 times the amount, which we pointed out and had corrected. We explained to the cashier about the missing meals, the rude waitress came and explained to him that there was a delay on the grill and it wasn't her fault. I said "but mine what a salad sandwich" ! She replied "i know".
We left.
I dont advise visiting this restaurant, the food is very average and the service rude and slow.
