I could eat the octopus salad all day everyday! Everything was delicious, we had calamari, octopus, salad and branzino. Fresh and perfectly cooked.
As the weather is beginning to change, we were able to sit outside for dinner for the first time since fall and it was very enjoyable as they had the heaters on. I can't wait to return.

My mother was visiting from rural South Carolina so I wanted to take her to places that she wouldn’t find at home. The place is lovely; we loved all the lighting fixtures. Our waiter was kind of rude, but we had a good time and the food was wonderful enough to overlook that. Mussels and the branzino were excellent options.

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.

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!

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
