I visited this place a week and a half ago for dinner. I was surprised that during a weekday night the place was so crowded I could barely find parking. We came in with our entire family. Excellent service. Our waitress was attentive, brought everything out we ordered very quickly, and offered recommendations on her favorites. I enjoyed the gyros... More

Legendary! Amazing Greek Ribs... Every time I am in Ft.Lauderdale my trip wouldn't be complete without a visit to Greek Islands Taverna. I literally dream of these... Unfortunately, I have never found a Greek Restaurant that comes close to this gem. I live in Chicagk and we do have excellent Greek restaurants but none can compare!

I visited my friend here. Although he had never been to this restaurant before, we both want to try something new. He was right. It was an impressive dinner. What we could highly recommend were "octopus", "lamb chop".... Seafood dishes were also outstanding. Greek salad was of good quality. It was crowded, but the staff was good at managing the... More

We'll be back and that's for sure. This is a very large restaurant that... More

This is a great spot for lunch. They have very reasonable daily specials as well as the regular menu. The food and service can't be beat. Especially the grilled octopus and Horiataki (Greek Salad). Sit outside and enjoy the spacious covered patio.

I'm no expert on Greek food, but you don't need to be an expert to recognize (and thoroughly enjoy) good quality food and service. Where has this restaurant been, and why didn't I know about it before?!?!? Terrific! Delightful family atmosphere; well prepared and seasoned food; large portions (unaware, we ordered too much and ended up taking some home); friendly... More
