We wanted to bring our knowledge to the Philippines and use all the incredible food that’s in the East and blended it with the West,” said Akrotiri General Manager, David Jones.
“Akrotini’s offerings reflect the Mediterranean classics, mainly Greek and other European influences but at the same time, we’ve localized the taste to create a new flavor.
One can call it ‘fusion’, but we feel that ‘EurAsian’ highlights what we represent—an amalgamation of influences that have strong ties with the Philippine food culture.”
The Eurasian Gastronomic Experience
Akrotiri’s story was shared through an audio-visual presentation, but more so when its menu items were exhibited separately, plated attractively for every event-goer’s delight and indulgence.

“Metro Manila is an emerging market for restaurants and we wanted to present something new, yet still familiar to the Filipino palate.
Using local ingredients and principles plays a vital role in bringing to life our concept of showcasing global coastal food cultures through dishes that remain close to home,” said Akrotiri Head Chef, Ereyca Trinidad.
