Akrotiri Seafood Taverna
JOIN US ON WEDNESDAYS FOR LIVE MUSIC AT 7PM!
Food and ambiance were fantastic. The space is a bit romantic, but not pretentious at. The owner greeted us upon entry and the servers were attentive and gracious. Portions are generous and the started bread is delicious.
The Prasini salad was well-dressed. The tzatziki, eggplant, and htipiti spreads were excellent. All four of us enjoyed the grilled calamari and the flavorful Pasta Greca. The swordfish was cooked well and surrounded with vegetables. We left satisfied. There were no complaints all around and I can’t wait to go back
Wonderful Valentine’s Day meal. This place is a favorite!!
Nice place, nice food, nice staff. But noisy. The tuna was excellent. Good choice of desserts.
Fun place with a short menu. What they has was good. The fish were very fresh and well prepared
Service was very good. Our reservation was honored on time. Food presentation was very nice. We ordered the whole fish, and it was delishious; however, the preparation of green vegetables was a problem. The brussel spouts were overcooked and far too salty. Overall we enjoyed our dining experience. This was our second visit, and we will return.
Delicious Greek food. Service was very gracious. Overall loved. We will be back.
Everything was delicious- especially the grilled octopus appetizer, which was incredible.
Dinner at Akrotiri on a Saturday night. We opted to dine at the bar where we were greeted by bartender and manager Arif. Arif mixed us two proper Old Fashioned cocktails with clear ice, which was a nice professional touch. Highly recommend to pick an entree from their fresh fish market. My dining companion and I went for the prawns and the tsipoura. The fish was grilled to perfection with only a light touch of olive oil and lemon juice to highlight the freshness of the dish. Akrotiri has become my regular spot, food and service are always consistent.
The lunch special is the best value in NYC. The food is excellent, we had a wonderful time.
Experience was great! Food is all very fresh and authentic. The best part was the outstanding service. It was our first time at this spot and we were offered a free taste of a special dessert and drink. Everyone is extremely friendly and service is quick. Would recommend to anyone and will definitely be coming back!
We have been to Akrotiri twice in the past month, and in both cases we had superior Greek cuisine, and warm and attentive service from all the staff, particularly our waiter Costas. The restaurant is a neighborhood gem.
Akrotiri is a very good Greek restaurant - delicious food, welcoming and helpful service, and a lovely, comfortable setting. I particularly appreciated the combination of terrific food, welcoming hospitality, and a very reasonable noise level, with well-chosen jazz and classic vocals. Together, these make for a wonderful shared meal with friends and loved ones. Next time, I want to try their great-sounding cocktails
Plate portions were small. I left feeling hungry.
Excellent bronzino ! Service was attentive and nice selection of Greek wines.
Clam in wine sauce was extremely salty. Bread was stale. The entrees were delicious (mushroom pasta and lamb chops).
Amazing experience. Waiter was fantastic and the food was incredible. Will absolutely be back.
Seafood is great, we loved the scallops, can’t go wrong with octopus either.
By far the best Greek restaurant in Astoria! Food is so delicious and fresh, the service here is always on spot , they even had set up a plastic silverware already on the table because we mentioned that we have a toddler with us! The details matters and Akrotiri knows that ! Well done!
Loved it! Our favorite in Astoria!!
Great Greek food! They have a wonderful selection of fresh fish and other main courses to select from. We had yummy appetizers to start, a bottle of wine, and our entrees were cooked perfectly. Both desserts (one we ordered, the other "on the house") were delicious. This was the third time dining here, and every visit we left happy!
I've become a regular at Akrotiri, the staff and management are so friendly and hospitable. I'd recommend a couple of appetizers to share and then ask your server to give you a tour of their fish market so you can pick out a fish for dinner. Most fish are easily shareable. Did I mention that they barrel-age bourbon on their own? Nice touch !
Delicious food ,professional and warm service! We love it here! Also they have a great selection of organic wines.
Lovely staff, amazing food and casual, inviting atmosphere. The perfect neighborhood joint!
Excellent! Feels and tastes like Greece
Among the best Greek restaurants in Astoria. Their appetizers are far more interesting and better prepared than most.
Terrible stay away
Best Greek food we've had in Astoria for years. This meal was a dream.
Excellent food and service
Would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone
The food, as always, was excellent. Octopus and perfectly cooked. Bronzino was great and all the dips, breads and veggie moussaka were all great.
One word of caution. We went on a Thursday evening and there was super loud live music. This was the first time I've ever seen them have live music and it really messed with the atmosphere. We couldn't hear each other talk, and the music wasn't Greek but like the Beatles and stuff. Not really my cup of tea so if that's not your thing, I'd call first and check to see if the live music is happening the night you want to go.
Computers were down and things fell apart. Services overwhelmed, no host or hostess. No apologies. They did comp our one dessert and 2 espressos. Could only take cash. Live music that was way too loud. Food was very delicious.
Not very accommodating I was sitting outside, the wind picked up with some rain and my drinks were blew off the table asked to be moved inside and was told that the table was reserved for someone else, they sat me at a very very small table were not even their big plates fit... well to top it off I stayed in the small table to eat my 4 course meal with my mother in law, we were there for 2+ hours no one sat at the table they said was reserved, they didn’t take credit cards they made me go out to an ATM to get cash to pay the bill... I know the table wasn’t reserved cus we pretty much stayed till close
Very nice. Food was good. Nice ambiance.
Really enjoyed this restaurant and will definitely return. There are so many Greek places in Astoria, but this stood out with the freshness of the food and excellent service.
Had an outside table for 6 people Overpriced food, poor service, asked for house wine, were served a $48 wine which wasn’t the house wine. Food was tasty but portions were tiny and expensive.Waited more than half an hour to be asked about desert after being given the desert menus. We finally had to give up, didn’t order the desert anymore. By the time we were brought the check, everyone in our group was annoyed and ready to go home.
We waited an hour for food, with our waiter very noticeably ignoring us, and the manager looking like he couldn’t care less. Some food was ok, some was horrible. Will not be returning.
It was our first time at the restaurant and we were celebrating my mother’s birthday! From service to food everything was amazing!! Food came out very quick and cooked well! The grilled calamari is to die for!
Nice fresh seafood, causal ambience. Waitstaff very attentive.
fish was excellent likely the best I have had in a long time! Appetizers were great except would not order the bacon again. Overall a great experience. Going back on Thursday!
Delicious as always!
