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

4 of us had a lovely meal here on a Friday afternoon(4.30'ish). We had a variety of octopus, squid, prawns and 2 local fish(the names I can't remember but were recommended by the waiter) and a speciality Greek potatoes.. The food and service were excellent.

Grilled, fried, or stuffed, the seafood can't be beat. The fried sardines and calamari for lunch hit the spot. The salads and breads could be a meal alone. It really doesn't matter what you order because all the food is first rate. Service is quick and lunch is a good time to go before the crowds descend. Everyone knows this... More

Before going to New York I consulted TA and this restaurant came highly recommended. We went late on a Saturday Night and this was one of the busiest restaurants around. We ordered Calamaria,and Antipasto (Mixed Dips) for starters. For mains we had Greek Salad, Red Snapper, Biftekia (Greek-Style burgers) and the Kyklades Speciality. The restaurant has a fresh fish stall... More

Had to wait about 50 minutes to get a table, as they were offering everyone house wine while we waited. Unfortunately they do not have a bar - the one thing to put it over the top! Food wise - we ordered fried calamari, which was almost perfectly done, and Dolmades aka grape leaves that were perfect (warm with the... More

The food is freshly cooked and savory. I loved the grilled calamari with cooked beats on the side. The fried fish is deliciously crunchy to eat and you can pair it with lemon potatoes, rice, or beats. It is a very busy place, you can expect to wait for some time. They do not take reservations. It is sure a... More

Every time we visit my sister and her family, waiting for a table at Kyclades is a tradition. This is the best Greek seafood you will ever have! We always order a large variety and share everything. Branzino is the best! Cant wait to go back!

Great meal here with lovely Greek food. It's a very busy restaurant so expect to wait for a table, but that is always a sign of a good place to eat!

I've been all over Greece, and this place has the authentic taste plus Greek wait staff and management! The only thing different from an outstanding taverna in Athens are the portions! Huge gut busting heart stopping American portions!!! Amazing value which almost brought me to tears... Fantastic grilled swordfish, made me wonder how could they only charge me $28.95?? Grilled...

Fried fish and potatoes is how Kycliades year by year became more and more famous... and crowded. Not really fancy food, but good, tasty and the format has tested for very long time, and works very well. Usually very crowded. Strongly suggested to make a reservation.
