Flavorful delicious food is magnified when you discover a restaurant with a great cozy ambiance. Petros Greek Restaurant Lounge is the perfect combination of a relaxing environment upscale environment with a beach aesthetic.. Located in Manhattan beach this restaurant has a great selection of Mediterranean cuisine with a little California influence. I love to go here in late afternoon so I can enjoy sitting outdoors and enjoying the sun and fresh air and then watch the sun go down.
When you arrive at Petros you are warmly greeted with a smile and fresh baked bread and garlic dip. It is Amazing! The servers are friendly and helpful and the menu is full of unusual flavor combinations such as the signature Karpouzi salad made with fresh watermelon, feta, tomatoe, Manouri cheese and Greek honey. This was such a flavor explosion, although my dinner date did not think watermelon and cheese belong in one salad, I found it refreshingly different and delicious.
My meal started off on a great note with the Horiatki flatbread pizza, which is loaded with tomatoes, olives, onions, feta and avocado. I also could not resist a platter of hummus in a variety of flavors with fresh pita bread.
The absolute best garlic dip ever
I can never pass up good bread. How about you?
Karpouzi (Watermelon) Salad
So delicious. And I mean D-E-L-I-C-I-O-U-S
Fish, rice pilaf and grilled asparagus. Healthy and delicious!
You absolutely must try the Loukouna, which are Greek donuts drizzled with honey, walnuts and served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream.
If you stay until the sun goes down, you can also enjoy the romantic atmosphere and glow of candlelight. Or if you choose to sit outdoors like me, you can enjoy an evening breeze while the heat lamp keeps the chill away:-)
As you can see, I hated everything, LOL. Actually, everything was quite tasty. The clean plate gives it away. Grandma would be proud:-)
Prices range from moderate to moderately expensive depending on how much or how little your order. For appetizers, entree, dessert and wine, expect to pay in the $100 range. For a simple lunch, you might pay as little as $15.00. The restaurant has a great variety to choose from and has fabulous vegetarian selections in addition to lots of great lamb, meat, poultry and seafood dishes to satisfy your carnivore cravings.
