We thoroughly enjoyed Greek Isles on three evenings during our recent Fort Lauderdale vacation. (Yes, we really like Greek food!)

The traditional salad (without lettuce) was outstanding - among the best we've had anywhere. The dressing and tomatoes were especially good!

Among our other favorites were the lentil soup, green beans (& other veggies in a light tomato sauce), saganaki, roast potatoes, Keftedes (meat patties), stuffed tomato and stuffed pepper combo, & filet (beef) shish-ka-bob.

We had been there a few years ago and thought it was pretty good. This visit, it was a food highlight.

Staff was very welcoming with excellent service in the midst of near full-house. It has free parking as you enter; valet parking further back, and we were glad always to have found a spot pretty quickly.

What an experience! The best prepared, best presented Greek food for the pickiest of palates.
We started with the grilled octopus, a favorite of ours. Prepared to perfection with subtle flavors and the perfect 'crunch. We went with the recommendations of our waiter Peter, the ribs and the leg of lamb. The sauce on the lamb was liquid velvet with the perfect citric flavor. The lamb was melt in your mouth. The ribs where of equal excellence. The portions where more than expected!
No room for desert..that's OK..we'll be back!
A MUST!!!!!!!!

if you like greek food, you will love this restaurant. When ever I am in Lauderdale, I have to eat at least one meal at Greek Island. They have the most amazingly tender and tasty grilled octopus, and the lamb chops are the best! We have also tried their souvlaki plates as well as the froed zicchini and the pasticio. All delicious.

The lamb is top notch. Some of the best in the area. Salads are fresh and tasty. We had the octopus and ribs. All good. Been going for years. Always consistent.
