Authentic Greek food just north of Ft Lauderdale. Go early and expect a short wait. Well worth it. Greek salad was very good as were calamari. Lamb chops and ribs were fabulous. I appreciated the outdoor seating and friendly server. Prices reasonable. valet parking is $4. Worth a visit!!

We don't speak the language but we were wild over the food. This truly is the only authentic Greek Restaurant in Ft. Lauderdale or maybe in the entire Florida State. The shrimp dishes are outrageously delicious. My husband doesn't like too much breading on shrimp but our waiter (who didn't write down any of our orders and got everything perfect... More

A dear friend of mine took me to lunch here, telling me that the service was excellent because they trained their staff properly. He was absolutely right. I have eaten in a lot of restaurants and this is certainly one of the very best. From the moment you walk in you can feel the class of the place. Bright, bustling... More

It's one of those places you never get tired of. I've been there at least half a dozen times with my family and always had a good meal. Real Greek, not pretentious and fairly priced. The Lamb Chops and the Fish amongst my favorites especially the Grouper and the Salmon. And as Appetizer, the assortment of Greek dips, the Pikilia.... More

We now winter in Boca after 20+ years in FLL. Do not get here as often as we would like to or as we did before. But, wow...it is the best! When we had finished a great meal of grilled octopus, fried zucchini, and a yellow tail snapper my wife said...we are not coming here enough... We dine often and... More

This is an authentic Greek restaurant.....from Gyro meat to Spanikopita to the deserts everything was great. We went on a Sunday early since we had heard about how busy this place can get so we arrived at 4:30.....only to get the last available table which was on the very nice patio. We were able to watch people arrive after us... More

This was our second visit to this restaurant and enjoyed it more than the first time. We had to wait about 30 minutes for a table but that was okay since we weren't really hungry at first anyway. Service was excellent and price is reasonable. We will definitely be back on our next trip in the Fall.

Trust me, that is saying something!!! I never thought of Florida as a food destination, but Fort Lauderdale has some of the best food I ever had...we had Cuban, Peruvian, Mexican....but by far Greek Islands Taverna was the BEST meal out of some tough competition. I will start with the fact that Greek food is one of my favorite foods... More

The food was very good from the calamari to the veal and chicken, however service was rushed and ignorant. It feels like a family owned operation and we were hoping for the service to match the food but no chance. Our male waiter threw the menus down and then came back immediately to take order - very rushed and abrupt.... More

Although the two of us did not get get out of there for under $100, tip included, the meal was well and quickly served, quite good, and with reasonable proportions - IF you don't want to linger, have coffee or dessert. They want you in and out. Table turnover is their business model and THAT put a damper on my... More
