Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

By far my favourite Whangarei restaurant. Food and service is great, the modern-Greek menu is just right, and everything is done without fuss so you can relax and enjoy yourself. The location is a bonus, so good to be away from the bustle of the...city and no parking hassles, just enjoy the outlook onto fishing trawlers, the sweep of the river and the hills. Thanks everyone!More

We went on a Tuesday evening and the atmosphere was great. The staff were incredibly friendly and helpful but gave us space, time and privacy. The food was amazing with great depth of flavors and aroma. Probably the best meal we've had in Whangarei for...many years. Keep up the good work.More

We were a group of 5 and ordered quite a few different meals and shared them all. What an amazing experience doing it the truly Greek style way of eating and we got to try so many different meals. We enjoyed everyone of the them...and cannot wait to go back. The service was impeccable and such lovely staff! The tranquility of sitting out on the river just topped it all off.More

I love the watery outlook. The food was exceptionally delicious. I also appreciated the acoustic panels in the ceiling. Greek food in Whangarei is a treat.

We had a lovely lunch and the staff were great . When I went to pay the bill I noticed that there was a $1.00 surcharge for trim milk. I asked why and was told it costs them to hold trim milk in stock. This...made the coffee $7.50. I checked with 3 of my local cafes and they were astounded. Trim milk is only approx $3 so I paid for 2/3. I replied to their email and have not heard a word.More

We had a lovely birthday dinner at Acropolis. The food is authentic and delicious. The drinks menu comes complete with divine Greek wines. The service is perfect, to the point but not overbearing. A slice of Greece in Whangarei.

This is a really nice setting on the waterfront. The food was really tasty and interesting as I've not had a lot of Greek food, and we loved the cheese entrée. The portions were large too. The service was cheerful and we got our meals...reasonably quick, despite the restaurant being quite full.More

Stunning! What a location and wonderful food. Went today for the first time and will definitely go back again...would happily say that this is one of the best meals we've had in ages - I hardly ever review so this is quite something!

Last night was my first visit to Acropolis Bar & Grill. I loved it. They have an extensive food and wine menu and the servings are generous. The food was fabulous, the service was friendly and faultless, and the setting on a sunny warm Whangarei...evening was perfect.More

It was our first time trying this place, and I highly recommend it! The setting and food was amazing. We felt like we were in Greece, sitting by the water and enjoying the sun. The food and authentic Greek wine were divine. The waitress was...also Greek, very friendly and attentive and beautiful pronunciation and descriptions of the foods for us.

The food and service was amazing, considering it was a quite busy night and only one very cheerful server working. Generous portion sizes, and everyone was extremely happy at the end of the night. Highly recommend the prawn starter, and stuffed vine leaves! While a...tad out of the way from the city, the views and restaurant itself was bright and fantastically decorated - exceptionally clean bathrooms as well!More

My partner and I recently had a late afternoon lunch here. We got the mixed share platter for two and we were thoroughly impressed. The amount of food we received was decent for the price and it was exceptionally cooked. The service was also top...notch. The waitress was kind, approachable and attentive. Ontop of all of this the location of the restaurant is stunning with a beautiful view outlooking the ocean.More
