This is the place for Greek food! Always crowded, huge portions, super good food. The filet kabobs are fabulous, served with rice. The chicken soup is good but very lemony. The large baked shrimp are served butterflied still in shell and served over rice with a sauce. Greek salad is very fresh but again huge. Bread with hummus also yummy.... More

Been here many times and keep coming back, it used to be that there was only a wait line in the "winter", we just went this past Saturday and to our surprise there was a line, but the wait wasn't too bad, the food is SO worth it. They start you of with the best humus and crusty baguette, we've... More

First, a shout out to Spiro, our waiter. Although the restaurant was slammed for a Saturday evening dinner rush he was fantastic. Nicely done, Spiro, and thank you. The grilled octopus appetizer is to die for. Good Lord that was good. The salad was equally good - everything was fresh, cold, and crunchy. I had the pork for dinner. It... More

We have been going to Greek Islands for 15 years and never had a bad meal. The service is great and so is the food. The ribs and lamb chops are the best in South Florida. Give it a try, you won't be disappointed.

We went there for dinner for our 5 year anniversary. We were told to go there from friends and it had good reviews. They don't take reservations so we expected to wait, and it wasn't bad, about 25 minutes. It was packed and seemed like the place to be. My husband and I LOVE Greek food so we were excited... More

Greek Islands Taverna was more authentic feeling than we had expected. In my opinion, many restaurants lose some of their ethnic authenticity when they are upscale. That was not the case here. The service was good as was the food. The restaurant was busy when we went which made the interior feel a bit cramped. We sat outside on a... More
