What an amazing little gem we found! I'm married to a Greek man so we take Greek food very seriously. Acropolis Greek Taverna had some of the most authentic Greek food we've had in the United States. The portions are huge and the price is a bargain! If only we could find a restaurant like this where we live. I'm... More

Gyros were solid. Pitas were fresh and had great flavor as did the tdziki. Meat was solid, but don't expect an overstuffed pita. Oh, and by the way, they have a full bar and a solid happy hour. The bartender was also very friendly and attentive. Atmosphere was good as well.

My partner and I stopped here for dinner while in Tampa for a family outing. We went to the one in Ybor City area....because we like that area and thanks to other Trip Advisor reviews thought it would be a good choice. We were right. We both had a nicely poured class of Cavino Cabernet wine and the Lamb Gyro.... More

Came on a week night with a couple of co-workers while in the area for work. We were seated right away and had the flaming saganaki appetizer which was delicious. I had the Shrimp Saganaki and my friends had the Gyro platters and we all really enjoyed our meals. The service was a bit spotty, we had to chase our... More

We loved the setting in Yboe City. We were there for lunch and to have an authentic Greek Salad. We were not disappointed. Plenty of good food for a reasonable price. All the dishes we saw come out from the kitchen were big and looked very good. It's also a fun people watching spot if you are outside or by... More

Great place to sit outside, have a few drinks & food was excellent. Ordered red pepper hummus & gyro sandwich & Greek wrap which was all very good. Nice place to chill & relax.

Ybor City is not really known for quality cuisine. It's a tourist destination for cruise ship passengers and Tampa visitors. The concept is a mini Key West without the scandal. Acropolis is a decent restaurant, actually better than decent. An innovative menu, a good staff and dedication to Greek cuisine. Stop by the Cuban old lady down the street for... More

We were amazed with the freshness, quality, and taste of everything we were served. The bread served after we ordered our lunch was fresh and tasty. The house made spread served with it was extremely flavorful, unlike any I have ever had before. The house salad continued with the fresh and tasty thread, with large quarters of the freshest and...

My friend and I both work at a fast-Greek place and so when we came here we were kind of comparing things. Their more put-together items like spanakopita- really really good. Their falafels, which I got in a wrap were pretty okay. Good quality greens and probably great salads, I didn't order one. AMAZING tzatziki. Gyro meat looked good but... More
