Great Greek food on vacation

Phenomenal food, good wine list, great service! As good as home made. Prices were more than reasonable for a place this nice.

It has now become a habit of ours to visit this restaurant every time we are in Fort Lauderdale. I had the filet mignon kabobs and so did my husband and they were cooked just as asked for.We managed to get a seat at the bar and ate there. I recommend going on a week night as this place is... More

Welcome atmosphere. We sat outside amongst the plants and flowers and did not let the nearby traffic sounds affect us. There were six of us and we each ordered something different with plenty of advice from our attentive waiter. Everyone seemed to be happy with their selections though I was surprised that I had a large whole fish on my... More

As always Greek Islands Taverna was excellent. The service and food as always were on point. The waiter recommended the ribs with lamb chops as combo and they were smoking. Definitely a go to place.

We love eating at the Greek Islands Taverna. The Greek salad is delicious. We have tried almost every entree on the menu and they are all wonderful. There is normally a line to get into the restaurant but it is well worth the wait. Enjoy!!

Lamb chops are fantastic. Nice casual place....always busy. Parking is a problem, and you now have to pay to park. We like to go with a group of friends and have a great time

Despite the line that forms in the parking lot, the wait isn't long to sit down - either inside or out. The wait staff helps you feel comfortable, and they're quick with the drinks, bread and garlic-infused spreads, and appetizers. We ate so much that by the time our cooked-to-order meals arrived - I had lamb chops - we weren't... More

If you like veal chops you must eat at this restaurant. If you just drive by the restaurant you'll smell this wonderful smell - it's their veal chop. You'll also enjoy their Greek salad and wonderful complimentary bread with hummus. Another of our favorites there is the baby lamb chops. Oh my, are they good. For seafood I love their... More

A friend and I went for lunch today in search of the perfect gyro. We were hoping for a gyro platter but had to order a la carte at lunch. In order to enjoy a salad, we shared a large Horiatiki ($15). We could have ordered a smaller salad as we didn't finish the entire dish. I think it could... More
