FABULOUS!

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

The grilled octopus is fabulous. The classic Greek salad is a must! The grilled scallops dish is huge and quite yummy. Expect a 60 minute wait most evenings. It will be worth it. Moderate prices for the area. Cheap compared to seafood joints in Manhattan. Enjoy!

The crusty Italian bread smothered in olive oil starts the festivities, followed by delicious Greek spreads, Greek salad, and delicious fish with lemon potatoes and dandelion greens... yummy!

We sought out the Taverna as restaurant reviews and word of mouth told us that this restaurant was the best Greek restaurant in Astoria for authentic Greek foods and seafood. at mid afternoon we arrived and placed our names and waited two hours...

Daunted by the crowd waiting by the hostess stand, my husband laughed at my sugges Super friendly, super delicious, super fresh, and super crowded. Just goes to show it never hurts to ask! Will be back for sure, and hopefully, will have the same good fortune upon returning.

It doesn't get any better than this. I have two favorite restaurants. This is one of them. I wish I lived next door. It's so delicious and good size portions. Reasonably priced for New York. The salad is huge - enough for four if ordering with a main course. Huge piece of feta on top. The grilled octopus is wonderful.... More
