Experience the best of Greek sailing; right here in Antigua.
Welcome to Akropolis Greek Taverna – right here in Antigua in the heart of the Caribbean.
When people arrive to charter from our base in Antigua, one of the first things they ask (after “Where’s the nearest bar?”!) is “Where shall we eat this evening?”. There are quite a few places to choose from right here in Jolly Harbour Marina and just a walk from our docks; everything from 2 for 1 Pizza evening at Al Porto with live music, to seafood specials at Melini’s and now, a new addition to the dining family – Akropolis Greek Taverna.
It’s set in a quirky location without any sea view but that doesn’t seem to deter people. It’s located literally just across from the Marina entrance on the first floor. Note the Christmas lights (year round, of course!) as you walk along and you’ve found the restaurant on the balcony. Quirky is probably the word I would use to sum up this dining experience. You are greeted by Marcello who is actually a carpenter/wood expert by trade. He can remember what most guests will drink even before you can utter “chilled Pinot Grigio”.
If you are not hugged by owner/chef “Mama Greek” in the first 30 minutes of your arrival, then she is probably in the kitchen creating delicious dishes such as slow-cooked lamb shank or pork souvlaki. But rest assured, she will be out to see you before you head back to the boat- possibly pressing a tub of home made hummus in your hand as a little something for the next day.
You can also just pre-order bits and pieces to take away and have on your cruise. Imagine authentic taramasalata on pitta bread and olives at sunset, overlooking a stunning Antigua sunset! Below is their very garlicky tzatziki dip; perfect accompaniment to rum cocktails, or any cocktails for that matter.

Let us know if you want us to pre-order any dips for you and we’ll have them on board for your arrival. Better still, book in to Akropolis for dinner; enjoy two main courses and they will give Horizon Yacht Charters guests a complimentary bottle of sparkly Pinot Grigio. How lovely is that?
