We ate Tzaziki and Moussaka with my husband. In our hometown in Finland we get better Moussaka Greek restaurant than in Acropolis. It was our first and last time...

Very friendly always welcomed by the owner personally. After one visit knows who you are and your drinks preferences. Good range of Greek and European food. Can take as long as you wish over your meal and chat. Free WiFi. Ate there every day of our stay in Crete.

Loved this place,the only reason we chose it was because they didn't hassle us to come in. The service was first class, i had mussle saganaki starter which was so light..perfect starter for me...followed by the roast lamb...simply delicious..my wife had the snails, and she loved them.The owner was so cool...he made time to talk to us, but was not invasive...and later he and his son did some traditional Crete entertaining, not the cheesy type...made for a really laid back atmosphere..all in all worth a visit.....Second best in area..because we found another place just out of town that we both fell in love with..

We were recommended this restaurant, it was just around the corner from our hotel (Santido Aegean Pearl) which was a result because the amount of food and the number of drinks we had/were given enabled us to carry our tummies not to far. The atmosphere, service and occasional live entertainment is 1st class. The traditional Greek menu is lovely we all had 3 courses (4 of us) and for main we all had traditional Greek Kleftico (braised lamb, not sure of the spelling?) which was melt-in-the mouth tasty. The bill for the 4 of us was 140 euros which included a well deserved tip. The owners gave us garlic bread, a round of spirit/cocktail drinks and Greek yogurt with honey and strawberries as complementary, what can I say but give it a try. One last tip, if you want the slow cooked lamb (to share) you need to give 24 hours notice.

we both had amazing crepes in here - definitely worth visiting and trying - on the day it was cloudy and a bit chilly so we had brilliant hot chocolate to warm us up!
