I have been visiting Kyclades for many years. Not much to say except excellent seafood and very reasonable price for the amount of food given. Service can lack sometimes but thats because place is non stop busy no matter when you go. Expect to wait in line for 15 minutes to half an hour to get seated if u dont... More

I have been coming here for years but I have to say, the food is not as good as it used to be. And you have to come during off hours or the wait is ridiculous. I love going on a weekday afternoon when the restaurant is filled with Greek men eating big fish lunches and Greek could be heard... More

We were staying with friends who lives in Astoria and my husband wanted some grilled Octopus and his friend recommended that we come here for dinner. There was 8 of us and we expected to wait for at least an hour since it's a Saturday night. We put in our names and proceeded to go a nearby bar,then our friend's... More

You wait a while for a seat as it's usually packed but once your food arrives you'll be glad you waited. Yummy Mediterranean cuisine. Fresh seafood and lively atmosphere

Although the food may be great tasting, I don't think the wait (in which you stand outside on the street curb) usually an hour or so is worth it when there are so many other restaurants in the area serving great authentic Greek food. Even when finally seated, the last thing needed is people standing not far from your table... More

First time - recommended by many people. Super busy, great energy, fast service & DELICIOUS food!! Live in Manhattan & plan on trying the one there, but would go to Astoria just for this place.

I'm not sure what I can say that hasn't already been said but I still feel compelled to write a review, it's that good! I have been to taverna Kyclades three times and each time I walked away convinced I just eat the best meal I've ever had. They don't take reservations so you have to show up and wait... More

Yup, that good! Busy, loud, a bit of a wait to get a table--all screams "greatness" to me. Food was authentic and priced right--fab service, kickin lemon potatoes, great grilled calamari--enough to choke a pig, peasant salad was tremendous---and I mean TREMENDOUS! Put this place on your list of restaurants to visit--it offers great Greek food, excellent service and a... More
