We have lived in Abbotsford for only a few years, but have enjoyed going for Greek food to the Greek Islands. My favorite is the Greek salad!!

Greek Islands used to be my favourite restaurant, was just there on Friday and the food was not nearly as good as in the past :( also they charged $2 extra to get 1 beef and 1 chicken souvlaki as opposed to 2 of each - not sure why?

If you want an experience of Greek food without travelling the distance this restaurant has the family, food and the atmosphere. Food is so authentic and the owners are family members so no matter which restaurant you go to they are the same, just different brothers, cousins or other family members. I have been to this restaurant several times and... More

The food and service is always excellent at the Greek Island restaurants. There are more locations and all are excellent. This is our favourite location. Close to home and the people and service here are awesome. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone.

Saganaki great , dolmades to die for. This is absolutely the best Greek place in Abbotsford if not in the Valley. Anybody who knows food will agree. I highly recommend this place to any family or friends.

This was a very friendly family run restaurant with the maitre d' and chef greeting customers although they were extremely busy. Reservations are a good idea. The portions were large and entrees come with soup and salad. The lamb was amazingly good. This is a must for anyone looking for good food in Abbotsford.

I have been in Greek Islands Restaurant 3 times in the past two weeks. My experience in most restaurants is it might be good the first time, but then they usually are not good again. NOT THIS TIME!

Went for a friends birthday party. Have not had Greek all that often. This was hands-down the best Greek I've ever tried. The food was nice and hot when it was served. The waitress was very attentive. And we ate a lot of really good cheese!! Oh and the schnitzel !!!!!

Group of 8 for my wife's birthday. Great night, great food and of course, great friends/family. Yannie and his staff always treat the guests so well. Many repeat guests, including ourselves, always enjoy the evening at this location. Food and service was not disappointing. Always a pleasure. If you haven't yet visited any of these restaurants, do it.
