Greek Islands Taverna

This Mediterranean mecca in the Galt Ocean Mile area is known for Greek meze, or small plates, such as gyros, spinach pie, and pikilia, a sampler of four traditional spreads served with pita. The ambiance is that of a traditional taverna – festive and loud with a lively, casual feel. Red and white checkered tablecloths and Greek paraphernalia stand out within the interior, while diners can also opt for alfresco seating under a ceiling with fans if they want to escape the noise inside. Try the saganaki, a wedge of salty Kefalotyri cheese flambéed in brandy, and don’t forget to yell “Opa!” as the waiter ignites the alcohol at tableside.
