Great restaurant, simple flavors, delicious, great service

Had the roast chicken and it was delicious, perfect cooking, the rice pudding was the best I had in years, al dente but good. The chicken caesar salas is the best, big chunks of chicken with good dressing.

April 29 dinner. Had such timid & weak seasoning that I could not believe that I was supposed to be eating Greek dishes. I grew up eating real greek food prepared by true Greek chefs. This is certainly Americanized food. Plus, the lamb chops where so black from being burned on the grill, it removed the taste of the lamb... More

Yes, perhaps it's because we're British and because we've spent time in Greece eating Greek food - which isn't always up to scratch by any means - frequently a mega slow kitchen and still hot dishes arrive cold - which didn't happen here... but oh dear! I myself make a very good moussaka, (my rating garnered from compliments!) but I'm... More

It has been at least 10 years since I was at Greek Island for a fair meal. This time, our dinner rocked! The food was authentic and tasty! The scordilia was infused with a delicious garlic zing, one of the best I have had anywhere. Our main courses were simply delicious. Can't wait to return!

Great food..Love the chicken kabob. The tazihiki is a great side to order. The stuffed tomato is also a winner.

One of the best greek restaurants i've ever been. Right in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. Try the lamb chops (to die for !!). The best grilled Octopus i've ever had !! The Feta ... the hummus ... everything is just great.

First of all I am not a big fan of Greek food. I was taken there by friends. It was not only the best Greek restaurant I have been to but it was one of the best restaurants. The service was fantastic. They sensed that we were in a bit of a hurry and just started bringing out the goods.... More

We were here last year and decided to come back again! we had the Ribs Ladoregano, Horitiki, rice and Roast Chicken Ladoregano. They gave us lots of good bread also! Everything was delicious and the prices are reasonable which accounts for the lines that are always there. The wait is worth it!
