Visited Akropolis before seeing a show at the Cliffs. Stupidly never booked anywhere but tried this restaurant and so glad we did. Looked busy but they've found us a table. Staff were very welcoming, friendly and appeared happy. Starters of Garlic bread with cheese (not very Greek or Cypriot I know) and Pitta bread and dip - Tsatsiki. Both were... More

Good food, polite and helpful staff. Good atmosphere and staff coped very well with some 'happy' christmas diners. Excellent guitarist / vocalist, would recommend to all and will hopefully return one day.
