We've visited the Akropolis twice in April 2013 and more recently 3 times in November. This restaurant has the best food in Jolly Harbour and the hosts Marcel and his father are so welcoming and attentive. If you love Greek food go here and you won't be disappointed.

They're moving to a better location directly on the waterfront on the harbour in December and the new outside area will be stunning.

Four of us went to the restaurant for an appetizer and a few beers (6) (local, not imported). We also had a bottle of water for the table.

At the owners recommendation we ordered the mosaic, a platter containing tastes of things: pita, hummus, tatziki, feta, olives, kafta etc. all were AMAZING.

Out waiters. Was completely accommodating as well. The $60 US seemed a little extreme compared to home but the food was still excellent.

The family are authentic that is for sure....the food and selection was not!! The salad lacked finesse and the main ingedient-Feta cheese was minimal. The main course was non inspirational and deserts -wait for it...Baklava, take it or leave it!! A nice selection of wines on offer to wash away the disappointment....Perhaps a bad day in the kitchen!!

This is probably my third review of this restaurant because I just need to express to everyone that will listen how good this restaurant is. The food is consistently good, which is not the norm in Antigua. The family are so hospitable and nothing is too much trouble especially when a guest has a special diet. The setting is traditionally Greek and so are the family. If you sit outside on the balcony in the evening with the Greek music playing you can feel you are on a Greek island, all that is missing are the noise of the scooters!!!!! Even when Vicky, the masterchef, was moving home and running the restaurant all on the same day, she even found time to make her loyal customers cupcakes!! She is an amazing lady and we love her very much. Please come and meet her and her wonderful supportive 3 sons and husband Aris and sample the wonderful food , you WILL be back for more. Well done Akropolis and good luck with your move to Peter's. TOO GOOD TO MISSxxx

I thoroughly recommend this gorgeous restaurant to anyone.
The food is cooked fresh when you order and to your particular taste or requests.
Thank goodness the meatloaf was back on the menu when we visited tonight. Gorgeous!!
The Hosts, Vicky and Aris and their sons are the most friendly and congenial people that you could wish to meet.
Nothing is too much trouble for them where your comfort is concerned.
The restaurant and kitchens are scrupulously clean.
All in all it is an experience you must try when in Antigua.
