The best Greek restaurant around

This is absolutely my favorite restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale! Unfortunately, I don't come to town as often as I would like. We usually go with a large party, so we order many different dishes to the table and share, so we can taste a bit of everything. I have yet to taste a bad dish or have bad... read more

Wow! Best food ever! We ate at Greek Islands twice and enjoyed everything we ordered. From the salads and soups to the entrees and desserts, everything was fresh and delicious.Can't say enough good things about this restaurant. We can't wait to return to enjoy more great Greek food.

I still find it hard to believe that the restaurant cordons off most of the parking spaces on its own property and charges $4 to valet park in empty spaces. Potential patrons should also note that no reservations are taken. In season, the line of patrons at the door can be quite long. But long lines are a sign of... More

first there is nothing I dislike except maybe in season there is a long wait and its first come first serve. but the food and friendly staff are well worth the wait. Real Greek food. the lemon soup is a must. I've been many times and have never been disappointed.

This place recently enclosed outdoor area for more seating and they need it! Even after the Snow Birds have gone back North, the place is busy and deserves the crowd and wait. Better Greek food than t had on two trips to Athens Greece.

I am enthusiastic for mediterranean food so I have expectations above the average, when I visit a typical restaurant. We asked for several appetizers before entrées and portions were well served. Hummus and other spreads were ok, nothing exceptional. Hummus was served with very little to none olive oil. Tzatziki, Taramosalata, Tyrokafteri and Melitzanosalata were not very consistent and seem... More

This is a local restaurant for us but during tourist season, the lines start to form by 6:00pm which is a testimonial to the fine dining experience they offer. The food is authentic Greek with many interesting salads and side dishes. The prices are fair, the service very good and the wine fairly prices.
