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.

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.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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.
