Ordered Mezze. All a bit underwhelming apart from the lamb which was lovely. It’s only £21 ahead so can’t expect too much but left feeling,not ripped off, just disappointed. Too cramped as well, table next to us was just an inch away, a bit close...More

OMG 15 of us attended Danni's birthday party in Akropolis. The food was very disappointing and the bill was ridiculously overpriced! 7 of us sent the food back. Don't touch the steak, chicken and sword fish. The steak was really fatty, the chicken was swimming...More

I would say a bit of each. Some Cypriot food. Grilled halloumi, vine leaves, yogurt, but mainly Greek. Very enjoyable. Especially the Meze. Worth the money.
