FETA believe Greek cuisine is actually super healthy!

The truth is, looking for authentic Greek food in Manila isn’t as easy to come by as compared to, say, Japanese or Chinese. We sometimes forget or have no idea what actual Greek food tastes like as majority of us have probably been introduced to the cuisine in its adjusted form to fit our Filipino palate.

Fun fact: Akrotiri (Ακρωτήρι) means peninsula; but it's also an ancient village on the volcanic Greek island of Santorini.

While there’s nothing wrong with some minor adjustments, it’s also truly an experience to taste the real deal. Have a bite of authentic Greek cuisine at Akrotiri, you can find them in either Makati or Alabang.

What we love about Akrotiri is that they stick to the true essence of Greek food from plating, huge servings, and the various vegan options. They even have a Greek head chef who frequently flies in from his restaurant in Greece to Manila to make sure the dishes you eat are as close to actual Greek cuisine as possible.

Stepping into their Jupiter branch, you’ll be greeted by the easily recognisable blue and white hues that you’d find in Santorini. They also have a second floor where you’ll find the bar and a more relaxed set up with their sofas and dimmer lighting.
