Best Greek restaurant in South Florida 2017: Greek Islands Taverna

BEST GREEK RESTAURANT

Greek Islands Taverna

3300 N. Ocean Blvd., Fort Lauderdale; 954-565-5505; GreekIslandsTaverna.com

Avgolemono soup, with its egg-lemony tang and generous portions of chicken, remains the unsung dish at the no-frills Greek Islands Taverna in Fort Lauderdale. The soup is often overshadowed by the grilled octopus, lamb chops and moussaka. But who are we kidding? It is all delicious. Friendly staffers stroll through the dining room with bottomless bread baskets. Try the pastitsio, which has a killer ground-beef-and-bechamel-sauce combination.
