This was our second time. The first was last year when we stayed in Fort Lauderdale. Friends of ours recommended who have been going for years and are in the restaurant business. Portions are large and extrememly good. Be sure to go by 5:30 p.m. or else you'll be in a line-up any day of the week. They do NOT... More

We stopped in for lunch at the Taverna and enjoyed the best meal we have had in the three weeks we have been in Fort Lauderdale. The lamb chops were fantastic - wonderfully seasoned and perfectly cooked! We will definitely be back.

We came on a Monday evening during a huge downpour and could not believe that there were lines almost out the door (no reservations here.) The staff kept the lines moving and we were seated shortly. We began with a classic Greek salad. My husband and I chose the lamb chops. The best we ever had were in New Zealand... More

Lamb Chops that melt in your mouth, Shrimp in a wonderful garlic lemon sauce baklava and rice pudding for dessert. The only down side is that you have to wait in line. No reservations. Best to get there early.
