Our tenth year in Tsilivi , and since it opened , the Micriacropoli is always our first port of call . In addition to the extensive menu , and great food , Billy & Freddie go out of their way to make everyone feel welcome . Great place for children as they can have half portions from the adult menu . The Greek nights are a must with everyone encouraged to join in . Can thoroughly recommend the moussaka and souvlaki .
Hope you guys , Sara and Ulla , have a good winter , and that your ventures in 2019 are a great success

Best wishes , Alan , Jane , Mary , Anna , Nana and the three kids .

I read all the good reviews first so chose to eat here, then found out the service was almost non existent, the food served barely warm and not to a high Greek standard - after waiting 30 minutes to get the attention of the brothers who own this place to get my bill, I gave up and walked up to the bar area where the wife of one of the Greek brothers was working and organised payment with her directly. There was no apology for the lack of interest or care in customers and no excuses as it wasn't busy either!

I notice that a lot of older English tourists come here, mainly because of the English wife and the brother married to her talks up a good yack to all the Brits eating here. If you think of a door to door salesman - his chat is good, his product usually isn't worth the money and that's exactly what you get here. I ate at several restaurants in Tsilivi during the week I stayed and every one of them was way better than this one.

The food was served just barely warm and it seemed to be reheated, definitely not cooked fresh. We ate Lamb Kleftiko (see pics) which was pure rubbish - overcooked dry lamb & potatoes, really crap feta cheese in a melted giant lump sitting on top of the dish. I didn't enjoy it and I've been eating this dish at Greek restaurants all over Greece and other parts of the world for years, where it's been fantastic everywhere else. Also Mixed Grill plate (see pic) was a mixed review as some meat was so dry, while other parts were ok but certainly not outstanding and the chips were horrendous.

The Humus (see pic) was bland and I doubt made fresh that day as it tasted like it was defrosted - it loses all flavour when this happens and made in bulk. The Chocolate Milkshake (see pic) wasn't good either but the Lemon Iced Tea was fine (see pic).

I just don't understand the high ratings for this place, but maybe the "sales chat" makes the older British that eat here feel at home and they are swayed to put up with the bad food.

Dear Guest,

We are sorry to read your review and apologise if you felt there service you received was not as hoped. I do wonder if your impression was perhaps somewhat negative from the off set due to this experience.

With regard to your comments about our food; our hummous is freshly made daily, when we run out we run out, we have and will never freeze hummous!

Kleftico is also made freshly everyday in the afternoon - it is impossible to make fresh to order as a true Kleftico take hours to cook properly. I am sorry you didn't enjoy this dish, but I ask why you did not say anything during your visit?

We are sorry that you didn't enjoy your experience with us, however I do not understand why you then have to belittle other guests and comment on their experience too. We cant get it right for everyone, and we are sorry that we clearly didn't for you.

We are pleased you found other restaurants that you enjoyed visiting.

Regards

MicriAcropoli

We (3 lady travelers) had all-inclusive at our hotel but were disappointed with the choice, so we ventured out into the town. We came upon this restaurant on a wet and windy night - they were warm and welcoming, so in we went. We were made to feel like one of the family straight away - 2 brothers and their families ran the restaurant and we were also introduced to one of the young daughters who made us a Play-doh cake!
We had the Meze as starter then seafood platter for 2 (sword fish, salmon, calamari, king prawns, mussels, roast potatoes, salad etc). It arrived on a large platter and was enormous and the Lamb Kleftico, which arrived in a lit cauldron - very impressive! The food was gorgeous, well presented and worth every penny. This place was busy most nights as we passed by, unlike many of the others in town, which says it all really. If you are staying in Tsilivi, you must visit, you will not be disappointed.
