Description: Greek Islands Cafe has been open in the same location for 34 years. With our picturesque views and amazing homemade food, its has been a local favorite for many years and hopefully years to come. All our desserts are made in house and well as some of our specialties like Pasticcio and Spanakopits as well as Dolmades.

“Nice location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2013 via mobile

The location, right by the bay, is beautiful. It's self service and I thought the price reflected the amount of food you get. The gyros was good. The Dolmades were not my taste at all, and they are usually my favorite. I would go back.

“Not black tie, but very good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

We went here on a Groupon special, but we'd go back anytime. It's one of the many small cafes at Seaport Village, but in its own way, a standout. I'd give it a 5, but I generally reserve that for the fancier spots. Okay, it's not fancy. In fact, it's order-at-the-counter, so it's not much on ambiance; but those things aside, the food is very good and very plentiful at a very reasonable price. Another plus is that it has a nice view of the harbor.

“Our Favorite Greek Restaurant in San Diego”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 9, 2013

We have been eating here for thirty-forty years. The ambience is Greek, the Muzak is Greek songs, you can view the sailboats on San Diego Bay. So if you're like us, and have never been to Greece, this is the closest we can get. We almost always have the Gyro Platter with extra meat and pita - which makes it just right for two; the meat is delicious and the Greek Salad is also. They serve been and wine, and sitting outside on a sunny day ,listening to the Greek music, is one of our most enjoyable dining experiences in San Diego.
