A wonderful example of fresh and flavoursome food from the Mediterranean. The staff were friendly, even with the volume of diners. I highly recommend

Food was great. I had lamb chops and lemon potatoes. Get there early and you don't have to wait. My friends and I all loved it. They give everyone free Galaktoboureko, for dessert, yum!

Kyclades is a place for food lovers who value a good meal and don't mind long lines and crowded tables. Once you are in (after an hour or so waiting) the fun begins. Make sure to order the greek salad which is aways big and good for sharing and the grilled Oktopodi (easily the best oktopodi there is). I also... More

Greek salad (didn't love, kind of bland) Beets- incredible. Spicy feta spread- incredible. Giganti- UhhMAZING. Had the red snapper, was grilled perfectly,... More

Please come to Astoria Queens and get on line to enjoy really fresh, delicious Greek food. Thankfully, a good friend recommended this place and I'm so happy to say this will be my go-to place for Greek food.I have already visited twice during lunchtime and can't wait to visit for dinner. I highly recommend the Mediterranean Sea bass (can be... More

This is my favorite traditional Greek restaurant in Astoria--the prices are reasonable and the portions super large. We always have leftovers! Sometimes there is a wait, so go early. The menu is huge, so the more people that go with you, the more dishes you can try. BRING CASH!

There is a reason people wait an hour to get in while there are a dozen other Greek spots within a short walk. It's really a very good, very authentic taverna .

We came here from Toronto - we were meeting relatives. They wouldn't seat us because all of us weren't there yet, even though we told her we would order right away. It's like we were doing them a favour by coming to their restaurant. Hostess was really rude. Where are the owners?!? Went to Stamatis, they were happy to see... More

Waiting time is long (expect anywhere from 30 minutes to 2 hours), it is crowded, it is loud and looks like not much BUT you will be rewarded with the best greek seafood you could ever have. Seafood here is as close as it gets or even better than in Greece. Prices are reasonable and service is on point, considering... More
