“Amazing Greek Food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2014

I had an amazing dining experience here with a group of my colleagues for my boss' birthday dinner back in March 2014. I ordered a lamb flank & it tasted amazing. I tried some of my colleagues' food as well & it all tasted great!

My favorite part of the evening was dessert, the ice cream & the Creme Brulee were to die for. So delicious! I definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone who is in the area looking for a place to dine.

The prices aren't all that budget friendly, but worth the splurge if you want to have a great culinary experience & make a first great impression. The ambience is very romantic. This would be an ideal place for a (first) date because they play romantic songs throughout the night & the place is dimly lit like a bar for privacy.

I would definitely dine here again in the future & would recommend friends or family to this restaurant. Bon Appétit!

“Great place for brunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 25, 2014 via mobile

We had brunch here one afternoon and the food was great. We had sliders for starters and then Greek paella for main course. The food was very tasty and the sliders were particularly tasty. Would defo eat here again if in the neighbourhood.

“Not your authentic Giagia's Greek Food - that's the point!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 6, 2014

At the recommendation of some friends from Astoria we visited MP Taverna for some dinner on a recent Saturday evening. What a great atmosphere and great food. If you are looking for authentic greek food, then stay at your giagia's house - if you want a modern twist and a great atmosphere, then come here. Service was great, prices are very reasonable, atmosphere is lively. Great selection of Greek wines and craft beer. Would recommend sharing appetizers with the table - the lamb and greek seafood dishes are very good and generous in portions.

“A cut above most Greek restaurants”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 28, 2014 via mobile

Astoria is known for its Greek restaurants, but MP Taverna stands out from them all. The food is awesome, fresh and prepared with careful attention to detail. For appetizers, try the grilled octopus and Grandma's meatballs.

“Very Good Alternative”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 15, 2014

We were invited to join a family dinner in Astoria. Our host picked Taverna Kyclades, due to the reviews. When we arrived at that modest storefront establishment, we discovered that there would be an hour's wait for a table. Wow! Good for them.
We moved along and down Ditmars Blvd and found MP Taverna. They had lots of tables available and we were seated.
The service took a while, but we were warm and seated and enjoying each other's company.
The food when it arrived was tasty and more uniquely flavored than I expect Greek food to be. The cold combo appetizer definitely had a zip to it that spiced up the selections in a good way.
Our waiter was Peruvian, and he assured us that the chef is 100% Greek. As far as I am concerned, kudos to that chef for large portions of traditional food served
