We visited this restaurant and I certainly wouldn't go back to eat the food was really poor! The entertainment provided by the Greek musicians was fantastic so I would advice you to visit on the Thursday evening when these guys are playing and just have a drink and enjoy the atmosphere!

We had a couple of nice meals here. It was just nice though, nothing outstanding. The spot is fantastic though and it's a relaxed atmosphere with laid back staff who don't rush you.

I know I should be reviewing the taverna and the food but I can't do that because we walked out before we were served. That's after sitting at the table waiting for a menu or even for a member of staff to acknowledge our existence for 20 minutes! There were waiters around, in fact two of them were sat at... More

We went to Akrogiali a couple of times on a recent trip to Kalyves, including one of their traditional music nights. Food was very good, with an apparently rare menu item of a lamb souvlaki, well presented and at reasonably cost. Service was friendly and attentive. The music night was low-key but fun with good bouzouki and guitar players. "Free"... More

Visited last night, started off with the cocktails which were really bad, Not actual cocktails just juice drinks with high price tags. Most of the menu is chicken, pork or beef with a different cheap sauce. We all had chicken, the rice which tasted microwaved was uncooked and the chicken was very tough. Service was slow, views to the ocean... More

Came here twice, had an excellent seafood risotto with a nice mix of clams, shrimps (prawns to us English), Octopus and mussels. Really great and such a large portion you'd struggle to finish it. As always all the seafood was fresh, service excellent and if you come by on either Thursday or Sunday evenings some musical entertainment to boot! For... More
