You have to wait for at least one hour before you sit, and not because that don't do a good job, but rather there are so many people waiting to eat. Many times I decided to go for lunch and I was able to sit right away. The food is great, especially if you like seafood Mediterranean style, and is... More

We normally stay on Times Square and from there we jump on the subway to the last stop in Astoria (Queens) then it is just a short walk to Ditmars Ave and the best place in NYC to get Greek Seafood grilled to perfection. We start with a large Greek Salad - even though the waiter cautions us it is... More

I went with my husband and his family for my mother in laws birthday. If you like real home cooked food that's the place to go to. They don't take reservations, there is a wait time no matter what time you go unless you go as soon as they open. It's worth the wait. I waited about 20 mins for... More

We arrived the end of lunch hour and told there was half hour wait and that's about what it was surprisingly- two of us had the grilled shrimp and one grilled calamari- the shrimp were large And all came with the lemon potatoes- everything was perfect. Restaurant is rather small and at that time rather noisy but the restaurant is... More

If you like grilled seafood, this is the place. We tried the grilled Octopus and the Mediterranean Seabass, both excellent. To go with them we tried the Fried Potatoes, which are sliced about 1/8 inch and fried, very good. We did not tried any of the salads, but they look wonderful when passing by.

Casual restaurant, good, fresh fish. You come to Kyclades for fresh fish, expertly prepared. Decor is casual. Service is prompt. Price is on target. Go at least once.

If you are looking for some fresh seafood done well, look no further! I've been coming to this restaurant for years and each meal has been spot on. All the ingredients are fresh and grilled to perfection. No salt or pepper needed. Go early and during off hours if you want to avoid the line for seats. I've waited 2... More

One of the best places in NY city for fresh fish. They have a very reasonable lunch special. The portions are large and the prices are very reasonable. Try to go at an odd time, otherwise, be ready to wait for up to two hours.

If you are a Greek restaurant in Astoria Queens you had better be good. There are dozens in the area and yours better stand out from the crowd. Taverna Kyclades does just that. Fish any way you want is the specialty of the house. Kebabs of chicken or lamb are stupendous. House Salad with large slabs of Feta on top... More
