Description: Lefkas Taverna was created in 1991 as a family operated business providing Authentic Greek Cuisine as it would be made in the village. Big plates filled with plenty of flavour and a lot of love.John Theoharis took over operation of Lefkas in 2005, in this time John has altered a few things, menu, image, presentation and additions although Lefkas is still a bound family operation from front of house to back from 11am through until late. Lefkas is now bigger & better than ever.We have expanded our restaurant capacity to create more seating, atmosphere, options and events,everything on the Lefkas menu remains the same plus more. The ambience pouring through the restaurant is second to none, people are up clapping and dancing, the band create such a vibe that no one can resist. Before you know it the restaurant is dancing on the street and cheering away, (Greek Style) loud and proud! This experience is quite hard to find, also so is the wide variety of food that fills everyone’s taste buds.John has put his heart and soul into this venture and takes a lot of pride in his business and efforts. Lefkas will now become a Greek restaurant meeting any imagination or requests possible. We will now have the capacity and space to hold events such as large group birthday parties, christenings, corporate lunches or dinner’s, even weddings!Everything Lefkas has to offer is made in house from dips to desserts. We fillet and marinate our own meat including Yiros, Souvlaki, Seafood, all cooked daily and from the best local produce.Our aim is to capture and cater for our loyal customers and their friends from start to finish, whether it is takeaway or a dining experience our staff will make sure your Lefkas experience is unforgettable.Our new lunch menu will catch the eye, more options at an affordable price, efficient service, leaving you fulfilled and satisfied, our dinner menu sizes and options will also be available upon request at lunch if you want to go all out on your favourites! Our dinner menu and pricing remains the same with a few more options to choose from.Last but not least…. Freshly made honey puffs, all visible and made in front of you, quite hard to resist! Drizzled with honey syrup and a dash of icing sugar, available all day dine in or take away. We will also have a liquor licence in coming months which will allow you to sit back and be served Greek style, great food, great wine and the fantastic music!(Eat Safe Brisbane Rating - 4 stars) Weekly Live Music from 7-10pm every Friday night plus once a month on Saturdays.Remaining Dates for 2013:Sat Nov 23rd, 30th, Dec 7th, 14th and our final trading date for 2013 Sat 21st of December.Bookings are essential, please visit our website for further details

“Very Greek and very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 22, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant is so Greek, it's noisy, vibrant and thoroughly enjoyable. The staff are good but kept busy on the Friday night we dined there, the food is nothing short of fantastic, I would recommend the Stifado on a cold winters night, it's quintessential comfort food.

“Nice food, large serving.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 20, 2014

My husband & I did not have a booking but got a table on a Wed night with no trouble. The service was excellent and the food delicious and reasonably priced and we found street parking very close by. We will be revisiting in the near future.

“Fun and great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 24, 2014

Strangely I visited this restaurant three times in two days. It's a long story. Twice was for lunch and once was for dinner--on my birthday.
At lunch I just appreciated the great food and service, but for dinner it's all about the live music and fun. We were there on Friday night and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.
There is a very good waitress and I think her name is Erica. She deserved a special mention.

“Awesome traditional Greek food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2014 via mobile

My family and I visited lastnight on a chilly Brisbane night. Upon arrival the gentleman informed us our table was outside but said he could organise a table for us inside in a couple minutes which was lovely because we were all keen to sit inside! So straight away I was impressed with the service. Food was delicious and was served to us reasonably quickly although a little staggered. We were offered a few extra plates that we hadn't ordered by the staff and one of us accidentally took a meal that wasn't meant for our table but they were fine and the person was happy to continue eating it after we had been informed of the mistake. Apart from that which was pretty minor everything was great considering how busy it was!

“Great night out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

July 2nd and it's hubby's birthday. He chose Greek after a referral from a family friend. It was only Wednesday but it bustling with diners. What a great choice. Food was scrumptious and tasty to eat. Service was great with birthday song and a gift completing the evening on a great night out.
