Really good Greek and seafood. Lamb chops are heavenly. All the standard Greek appetizers and desserts. No reservations. Valet parking. Good wine list.

Went here at the recommendation of several different people during our last night in Ft. Lauderdale. Have little experience with Greek cuisine but this place is a must-visit. Don't expect a fine dining type experience but set your expectations for excellent food , reasonable prices and a lively atmosphere. We enjoyed the octopus appetizer, lamb chops and pork souvlaki.

Once you enter Greek Islands Taverna you feel like you are in Greece. You will make this a necessary stop weekly. The food is fresh and the tomatoes, year round, in the Greek Salad are amazing. Lamb Chops off the chart. The friendly staff is always busy, but they remember you and every time is like the first time. It... More

Dinner was fantastic. Service was even better. Authentic Greek food highly recommend. My wife had the chicken kabob I had the shrimp both cooked perfect. Fresh and fast! We also tried the octopus and Greek salad. Finished off with baklava cheese cake. Next time we are in ft Lauderdale we will be back.

We haven't found anything bad at the Greek Isle. Usually, our first night's dinner is there! The chicken wings, ribs and octopus are among our favorites. You must get there very early or you will have to wait quite a while! That is a sign of a great place to eat!

Went with friends. We had an Awesome Greek Salad (shared) and GYRO, lemon soup and octopus. All the food was great. They serve a fabulous hummus with bread and tzaziki sauce with pita was awesome. Very nice place worth a 2nd trip and more. This one is on my radar for a regular place to eat when in the area.

This gem is close to my neighborhood. You can eat inside or outside under a protective cover. The food is delicious. I like their large greek salad (with chicken) and their gyros. The food is reasonably priced and they have a nice wine selection.

Good quality food and service. We were hungry and slightly over ordered: small Greek salad (plenty for 2), slightly battered smelt, dolma, soup, grilled octopus $17 (a must try) half chicken with 2 side dishes from dinner menu $15, slice of cheesecake, 2 Greek beers and 2 coffees. The bill was $87 before gratuity. Food was delicious and served promptly.

We are looking for a good Greek restaurant for long time .... And Finally found it. We discovered a few dishes that reminded me of my grandmothers food , first the grilled Octopus : Excellent , The Moussaka was back home ! My wife liked the Lamb- chops and for me The Kataifi A+.

Thank Yaaqov K K
