Manhattan Beach's Finest Restaurant

  • Mar 5, 2010
Superb food, good ambience. Wine list could use improvement, but I love that Petros puts wines from Greece (and even wines from the island where he was born) on the menu. Having the Greek wines really adds a down home feel to an otherwise, upscale restaurant. There's a lot of great items on this menu, which is littered with unique choices (i.e, the Karpouzi salad with waternmelon, heirloom tomatoes, feta, honey and mint... delicious to share), but for lunch, its hard for me to stay away from the Horiatiki (House) Salad with Chicken - one of the more unique and delicious salads anywhere. For dinner, their signature item is the feta crusted lamb and, good lord it's delicious. My wife swears by the Spanikorizo (spinach risotto with prawns). If you're looking for something lighter, the aforementioned salad, swordfish and chicken are all great. They also have tasty pizza's. I'm salivating right now. This restaurant is Petros' first foray into the restaurant business. He's clearly has his act together, because he's nailed this place. When you see how many restaurants just don't get it, its refreshing to see a newcomer do such a great job.

I think Petros has the best food in Manhattan Beach and is definitely the best Greek restaurant I've tried.

Great Greek food but slow service and they don't always honor your reservations. I went there once with an 8:00pm reservation and waited until 9pm. There was an open table but the owner's friends waltzed in and sat at it after we'd been waiting 45 minutes. Get the arugala salad with either peaches or figs (seasonal dish).

food is great. for dinner get the chicken. I know it sounds to plain and simple, but it is the best thing on the menu. You've never had roasted chicken this good before. The rack of lamb is great too. For salads I love the tomato and watermelon salad and the peach and arugala salad.
