"Akrotiri is inspired by Greece's astonishing geography and a wide diversity of ingredients. Akrotiri which literally means cape or peninsula,  can be located  all around Greece.

The strong connection between the land and water is exemplified by our food development using a classic Greek heritage.

Akrotiri's objective is to serve simple natural dishes with the freshest ingredients in a very welcoming atmosphere "

- Akrotiri

Yesterday with some UP fraternity brods and sorority sisters, the handsome hubby and I had dinner for the first time at Akrotiri. Timely too because we are watching what we eat this days  and Greek or Mediterranean cuisine are known to serve healthy food.

Here are some of the food our party of 16 enjoyed...

Xoirino Rolo P450 - slow cooked pork rolled and filled with green peppercorn served with fries and potato onion..

You will marvel at the Pork Skewers . They were so meaty yet juicy. You would be curious as to Akrotiri's grilling technique. Same is true for their chicken breast skewers...amazing!

One of my favorite starters  is Akrotiri's  Grilled Feta Cheese with Tomato & Bell Pepper P300.  Suggest you pair it with white wine.

Grilled Halloumi CheeseP250  was a standout too. Do not forget to squeeze some lemon on it before eating.

Notable dishes that we were not able to take a pic of but I would highly recommend are ... Dip Platter  with pita bread P500,  Salmon Skewer single stick  P370 .  It is a complete meal by itslef with pita bread tztiki dip, french fries and tomato salad.

Ambiance   was homey and casual with a mediterranean-sea blue  and white the dominating  color theme. It is a two storey restaurant where the 2nd floor  can be utilized as an events place.

Upon entering you see the aquarium of a kitchen in front and the mural-rendition of Mykonos on the left.

Chairs echo the blue and white theme.

Service was exceptionally warm and friendly. The Restaurant Manager  Marie was very amiable, patient and eager to share  the back story about the Greek resto.


Love the much touted authentic Greek food.  I think it is the only restaurant in the metro that has a Greek Chef in the kitchen helm

Definitely returning with the piggery in tow.
