We never ever miss a visit or two whenever we are in FLL. It's usually our first stop once we arrive. I have been here about 10 times in the past few years and it is always consistent and delicious. I've sampled many different dishes on the menu and nothing has disappointed. The lamb chops for dinner are always a... More

We went there to eat last night, and if the crowds are any indication, this establishment is the best place to eat south of Orlando. Wonderful Greek selections that are sure to please. We had Tsitseki and Saganaki (Greek yogurt with garlic and lemon juice served with Pita bread slices, and flamed cheese sizzling on a metal plat.). Our entrees... More

Fans of Greek food look no further. This place has it all. We started with the Octopus ... very tender. Then we all shared the stuffed Tomatoes ... delicious. My favorite were the Lamb Chops ... amazing. The environment was wonderful as well with relaxing outdoor seating. And I must also say the service was outstanding. A must when I... More

Whenever in Fort Lauderdale we go directly to Greek Islands Taverna. It's our favorite Greek restaurant anywhere. Get the shrimp scampi or the lamb chops.

Food was excellent..they sat us in the bar area I think because we were wearing shorts. It's Florida right? Service was just ok. Garlic hummus was best I've ever had..but served with Italian bread? No pita? Get there early or the wait is a very long time. Parking terrible and then they rip you off for $4 valet parking!

This is our favorite restaurant and we try to get there every year. We started off with a great drink in the bar, martini's perfect and excellent gin and tonic. Our appetizers began with the grilled octopus and keftedes with the spicy feta cheese spread with grilled pita bread. The lamb shank was awesome along with the grilled shrimp with... More

This was our fourth time to dine at this fine restaurant and it seems to get better and better with each subsequent visit.....You'd best get there early or be prepared to stand in a long line waiting admittance.....This place has excellent food with good service but it also has an extensive wine list that would satisfy the most demanding wine...

What a great find - the food is fantastic and VERY authentic - and we should know having lived and worked all over Greece for many years. Greece has huge regional variations in its style of food as it is such a vast country in geographical terms - from the far north to the mass of Islands in the med... More

We visited Greek Islands last year on our holiday and had such a great experience we were looking forward to dinner here again and it did not disappoint. The service and food were excellent. Reservations are not possible and we had a short wait for a table as there was a queue which was managed fast. Would highly recommend the... More

I love Greek food, especially lamb, these were the best lamb chops I've ever had! Very tender (I have no idea how they do that)but crispy on the outside, and the flavor was outstanding. I usually don't eat octopus (because I'm a scuba diver and I prefer to see them alive) but this was worth it, best octopus ever!! They... More
