Description: Lefkas Taverna was created in 1991 as a family operated business providing Authentic Greek Cuisine as it would be made in the village. Big plates filled with plenty of flavour and a lot of love.John Theoharis took over operation of Lefkas in 2005, in this time John has altered a few things, menu, image, presentation and additions although Lefkas is still a bound family operation from front of house to back from 11am through until late. Lefkas is now bigger & better than ever.We have expanded our restaurant capacity to create more seating, atmosphere, options and events,everything on the Lefkas menu remains the same plus more. The ambience pouring through the restaurant is second to none, people are up clapping and dancing, the band create such a vibe that no one can resist. Before you know it the restaurant is dancing on the street and cheering away, (Greek Style) loud and proud! This experience is quite hard to find, also so is the wide variety of food that fills everyone’s taste buds.John has put his heart and soul into this venture and takes a lot of pride in his business and efforts. Lefkas will now become a Greek restaurant meeting any imagination or requests possible. We will now have the capacity and space to hold events such as large group birthday parties, christenings, corporate lunches or dinner’s, even weddings!Everything Lefkas has to offer is made in house from dips to desserts. We fillet and marinate our own meat including Yiros, Souvlaki, Seafood, all cooked daily and from the best local produce.Our aim is to capture and cater for our loyal customers and their friends from start to finish, whether it is takeaway or a dining experience our staff will make sure your Lefkas experience is unforgettable.Our new lunch menu will catch the eye, more options at an affordable price, efficient service, leaving you fulfilled and satisfied, our dinner menu sizes and options will also be available upon request at lunch if you want to go all out on your favourites! Our dinner menu and pricing remains the same with a few more options to choose from.Last but not least…. Freshly made honey puffs, all visible and made in front of you, quite hard to resist! Drizzled with honey syrup and a dash of icing sugar, available all day dine in or take away. We will also have a liquor licence in coming months which will allow you to sit back and be served Greek style, great food, great wine and the fantastic music!(Eat Safe Brisbane Rating - 4 stars) Weekly Live Music from 7-10pm every Friday night plus once a month on Saturdays.Remaining Dates for 2013:Sat Nov 23rd, 30th, Dec 7th, 14th and our final trading date for 2013 Sat 21st of December.Bookings are essential, please visit our website for further details

Didn't know this place existed until got invited to a friends 40th birthday bash. Wow, what a blast. Had the banquet and it was a mega meal. I am a love of Greek food and this is quite simply some of the best I have eaten. The secret to find out if a place can cook is to order some... More

I remember being taken here as a child, and over 10 years on I was comforted by the familiarity of the great food and friendly faces. Whilst Lefkas has grown in size, it's personality remains and it's good still sensational. Don't miss the Tarama(salata) dip in your entrees. This venue oozes character above and beyond it's competitors.

We used to frequent Lefkas regularly about a decade ago, and was known for its cheap, home style cooked food and dishes. It was run by as mum, dad, and the family. Have not been to Lefkas for about 10 years, and know that it has been sold to new owners and the restaurant modernised and expanded/enlarged. While the food... More

This restaurant is so Greek, it's noisy, vibrant and thoroughly enjoyable. The staff are good but kept busy on the Friday night we dined there, the food is nothing short of fantastic, I would recommend the Stifado on a cold winters night, it's quintessential comfort food.

My husband & I did not have a booking but got a table on a Wed night with no trouble. The service was excellent and the food delicious and reasonably priced and we found street parking very close by. We will be revisiting in the near future.

Strangely I visited this restaurant three times in two days. It's a long story. Twice was for lunch and once was for dinner--on my birthday. At lunch I just appreciated the great food and service, but for dinner it's all about the live music and fun. We were there on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. There is a very... More

My family and I visited lastnight on a chilly Brisbane night. Upon arrival the gentleman informed us our table was outside but said he could organise a table for us inside in a couple minutes which was lovely because we were all keen to sit inside! So straight away I was impressed with the service. Food was delicious and was... More

July 2nd and it's hubby's birthday. He chose Greek after a referral from a family friend. It was only Wednesday but it bustling with diners. What a great choice. Food was scrumptious and tasty to eat. Service was great with birthday song and a gift completing the evening on a great night out.

We had a table with 4 friends and weren't disappointed! This place was pumping on a Saturday night. We were informed that we had to be in by 6:30 and out by 8:30 and I can understand why- people were lining up yo get a table. The food was fabulous ( I recommend the hot combination platter ) and the... More
