Greek Islands Taverna
3300 N. Ocean Blvd.
Fort Lauderdale, FL 33308
Open daily for lunch and dinner
There’s no live Greek music, belly dancers or shouts of Opa heard over raucous banter here; it’s not a party place as some Greek restaurants advertise. Greek Islands Taverna is all about food.
Hallowed dishes of Greek cuisine – a 4,000 year-old tradition – can be found at Greek Islands. Dolmathakia (stuffed grape leaves), roasted lamb, Souvlaki (marinated pork on a skewer), and Moussaka (ground beef, macaroni and béchamel sauce) top the list of Greek specialties. Traditional salads of cucumbers, large wedges of tomato, feta cheese and sliced onion are tongue-slapping good.
A plate with two small loaves of bread – white and wheat – and a heaping dish of hummus comes to the table before one has time to look at the menu. Many items can be ordered as merze, a small dish, or as a full dinner. Dessert classics of honey, walnuts, filo and yogurt complete a typical Greek Islands meal.
There’s lots of wallet options and a tab without alcohol can be pleasingly moderate.
Prices and consistently good food keep the tables full here. A wait is not uncommon. Many patrons choose the full bar to eat a meal, watch a game or to socialize. It’s a comfortable place for the single diner.
Patio dining available for lunch and dinner. Service: good.
