Akrotiri Seafood Taverna
The manager was the nicest human - really showed he cared about our experience. The food was honestly out of this world and I’m not exaggerating - squid ink pasta with seafood... best I’ve ever had, cookies to perfection.
Highly recommend! The food is sensational and the service is fantastic.
One of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had in recent memory! Will definitely be back!
Excellent food and service! Arif the host is excellent and extremely friendly! Definitely recommending this place!
THIS IS THE PLACE ! I cannot say enough great things about this establishment- the food, the music, the ambiance and the staff. I highly recommend that you consider Akrotiri for your next celebration, big or small! I can’t for my next visit.
We had the best time at this restaurant... It’s an oasis in Astoria, literally. After reading all these reviews we decided to come from Manhattan and it was def worth it! Delicious food , great service and we really enjoyed the music. We Will be back soon!
Conveniently located and cozy restaurant with great pricing for the quality of the food served. The service is friendly and hospitable. Give their Greek wines a try, we really enjoyed the dry white wine from Santorini.
Delicious food and great service.
2nd visit in two weeks I really enjoy this place. It was packed on Saturday night but we were sat immediately. The restaurant has an energetic chic vibe and a menu full of delicious options for any palate. My guests and I shared a Greek salad, the squid ink-infused tarama, and the saganaki for starters, all the apps are generous portions and I'd recommend you share them all. For our mains we opted for fresh seafood by the pound from their ice bar. The red snapper was grilled to perfection with a lemon juice and olive oil dressing. Definitely try out the tiger prawns, truly amazing! I found out that their bar uses "clear ice" as I finished my Basil Hayden's Old Fashioned and it was not watered down at all. Definitely a nice touch. Will be back soon!
My guests and I had a wonderful dinner. The food was excellent and the service was very good.
The food is absolutely delicious! Everything was perfect!
Great food and very hospitable service. Definitely a step up compared to other Astoria Greek restaurants. The fish by the pound is of high quality and definitely a good reason to visit the restaurant. Friendly and warm service by our bartender Mike and Arif the manager. Proper dinner.
Fantastic atmosphere, and VERY conveniently located. The food was AMAZING and will become our go-to for guests.
Nick is an amazing chef with inventive iterations of classic Greek cuisine. Nice wine list and cocktails.
An excellent Greek seafood restaurant in Astoria with a good wine list. Friendly staff and reasonable prices. Probably one of the best Greek restaurant in an area with lots of very good Greet options.
5 words. Best Greek restaurant in Astoria.
The food was excellent! Authentic Greek food with a twist which made it interesting. The service was top notch which made for a perfect evening.
ive been here before and everything was great, but the their new year's seating was clearly a cash grab with an overcrowded restaurant, overpriced, poorly prepared food, shoddy service, and good baklava.
Amazing, spectacularly good food in a casual, very friendly atmosphere.
I've dined at Akrotiri many times but recently tried the Christmas Eve prix fixe menu and was very impressed. This is a great spot to bring out of town guests fora truly memorable meal.
Great food and service. We spent a really good time
This restaurant is a neighborhood gem. Unlike local Astoria Greek eateries that provide mediocre comfort food and abysmal service, Akrotiri brings you a dining experience on par with some of Manhattan's most upscale Greek dining venues like Avra or Milos - at a much reduced cost. Highly recommend their fresh fish by the pound, especially the tsipoura sea bream and the African Tiger Prawns. The service provided by Arif and Antigone was professional and hospitable. If Arif is bartending make sure you ask him for an Espresso Martini after dinner drink, he knows how to mix a cocktail! We will definitely return soon
Incredible, authentic Greek food. Cute aesthetic. Very cozy. Perfect for a get together. Met the owner, he is very kind and warm. From a Greek, the food is delicious!
Had a wonderful price fixed lunch. Great value. Wine by the glass was very good.
Went with a group of 9, people was delicious, our waiter was full of recommendations which were great! All the other 8 people had never been and we’re all saying how much they would definitely come back! Great atmosphere in general
Food and service are great, but the clientele are loud. Some design changes to lower the noise level would be great.
We love this place but if you want quiet conversation go early. By around 7:30, things start heating up and the noise level increases a lot.
Excellent place. Food is amazing.
Excellent raw oysters. The grilled octopus with black-eyed peas and dill appetizer is delicious. The perch and vegetables en pappillote was just right. Excellent desserts. Our waiter was engaging and wonderfully helpful. Nice selection of Greek wines. Seating is tight.
One of the best meals ever! Delish cocktails, appetizers and main course. Especially loved the shrimp appetizer and grilled octopus. Can't wait to return.
We had a wonderful dinner on Saturday evening. The service was attentive and we loved being able to pick out our own fish. The fish, scallops, oysters were all very fresh. The staganaki was mouth watering!
Amazing place , love the food and excellent service
Great food- super value
The food and service were excellent. Unfortunately we sat close to the windows and door and on one of the coldest nights in many years, the lack of insulation and the constant opening of the door as people came and went, meant we were quite cold much of the time.
The staff did all they could to ensure our comfort and the food was delicious. We will be back, but will wait for the weather to warm up.
Ten star food in a five star world. Creative delicious Greek fare. Will return. Only criticism is that it is tight between tables. Definitely a winner!!
I live close by to this restaurant and have always been intrigued by their happy hour ($1 oysters from 3pm-7pm). We went on a Saturday night and made a reservation- it was super packed and busy. We had to wait at least 30 minutes even with a reservation BUT the host was gracious and offered us a glass of wine while we waited. We had the grilled calamari, scallop with squid ink linguini & bacon gnocchi ... WOW INCREDIBLE. After all that food we still found room for this orange zest dessert. Everything was incredible. We cannot wait to go back again!
Food was very good. The fried veggie appetizer was so good we ate the whole thing . Saganaki and calamari were also delicious. I had the chicken and substituted French fries and I wasn’t disappointed . Chicken was moist and fries were excellent. Everyone was happy with their food. Will definitely go back. Desserts were also yummy! I especially liked the mastiha ice cream and the orange pie.
Love, love, this places !!! And chef is so unassuming and humble !! Love his cooking and the staff is so accommodating too!
The welcome is very Warm and waiters so kind and helpful. The meals were all very tasty and fresh.
They were very nice adapting food for children as well. The place is charming and the bar great !
I would recommand it and will be back a third time for sure.
