This has to be one of my favorite restaurants on island. The food is very very fresh and really tasty. i have never had a bad meal here. They do fantastic starters and often its hard to choose which one to have as they all make the mouth water, usually we end up going for a variety to share! Then the main courses are so delicious and tasty that once again its wise to share a couple of things just to get the best of both worlds and then you dont get food envy! My favourite is the meat loaf which is delicious followed by the chicken souvlaki, again delicious and you dont feel like you have eaten anything unhealthy! The waiter (who is the chef's son is very up on his wines so do ask him for a recommendation to go with the dishes you are ordering. I just can't wait to go back again!!

New restaurant recently relocated into Jolly Harbour. Lovely harbour side location in newly built outside area. We felt the place lacked atmosphere and the staff were rather unwelcoming. My wife asked if she could have a platter with a taster portion of the various Greek starters like humus etc.. This was not on the menu but the waitress said she could do it but when it came it was rather tasteless and all they had done was give her a full portion of each starter which meant the starter was far too big. When the bill arrived we had been billed for each one separately so the starter came to 65 EC$ plus ABST and service! Her fish main course was dry and flavourless. I had soup and moussaka which were quite good but not startling. Would not bother to go back.

A lovely restaurant, great ambience, service and food.
Linen tablecloths and serviettes make it place to go for a special meal.. Pleasant harbourside setting in tastefully constructed open air restaurant. The food and service are excellent. It is a family run business where you are made to feel welcome and special.

Very over priced, and the owner of this restaurant is extremely rude. We were the only business they had the night we went, and the owner was so rude to us that we actually got up and left. No sense in customer service. We were extremely happy that we left and found actually a better place to eat with delicious food with prices that weren't meant to rob your pockets. I do not recommend anyone to come to this restaurant. Oh and also their bathrooms had no doors, and no sink. Disgusting.

Thank you for visiting our restaurant. Let me begin by saying that we have many students who come a long way from the north of the island to dine at Akropolis and do come back.

Now than, the person you spoke to was not the owner but the chef, perhaps the chef jacket and chef uniform might had given her away?

And please keep in mind there had been 8 of you that walked in under dressed yet we let you in at the time when we had just opened. So yes you where our only business at that time.

Regarding the bathrooms. We have two, one that is being renovated and a functional one, perhaps you could have used the bathroom with the door and the sink and the toilet?

Last, please do not make false reviews when you hadn't been served nor ate nor sampled any of my dishes.

If you are looking for something cheap on this island may i recommend making reservations at KFC?

Thank you again.
