Amazing food and the owner served us himself and gave wonderful descriptions and recommendations. We have spent some time in Athens and the food here was equal or better than the Athen's restaurants.

We had an overnight at one of the LAX hotels and walked over to this restaurant for dinner. The food was delicious. It is a casual family run restaurant and they were very gracious in greeting us and ensuring we had a great meal. We would encourage anyone traveling through LAX to check it out.

Aliki's Greek Taverna falls into the category of mom-n-pop, neighborhood type restaurant, almost a hole in the wall, but a step above that, I'd say. So, it's not fancy, it's not glitzy, but the staff are super friendly and warm and welcoming, and the food is very, very good. We were a table of six, and everyone loved what they... More

When you've got to get a taste of traditional Greek food, it's worth a quick ten minute walk from 'Airport Center' to this little restaurant. Stuffed behind the Super 8, with off street parking, it's got a full selection from grape leaves, spanakopita, including some seafood imported directly from Greece, and the usual north American staples like gyros and souvlaki,...

The best Greek food ever! Place looks eh not sure but walk in and your transported to Greek food heaven. The aroma alone makes you want to ask for a bib because I was practically drooling. We ate there coming and going to Hawaii and would fly back from florida just to eat there again! Amazing! Patitsio, souvlaki, gyros platter,... More

An oddly placed taverna close to the airport and car rental return. But food is really good and service is friendly. A bit more proper plates, glasses etc would have been a nice improvement, but still definitely worth the detour!

Based on excellent, and accurate, TA reviews, we went to Aliki's for dinner. Small location, but amazing service and food. If in the LAX area, instead of a hotel restaurant, go to Aliki's! From the appetizer to dessert, the food was delicious, and the service was warm and attentive. Great find!

I stumbled upon this restaurant during a recent stop over at LAX. Conveniently located near the airport, this restaurant is a real hidden gem. The food is fantastic! Great flavors and amazing selection of traditional Greek specialties. The avgolemono soup is amazingly tasty and refreshing. The stuffed grape leaves are classic! And the feta and olives appetizer dip is incredible... More

I would not have given this restaurant a second glance had I not read about it on TripAdvisor. We were staying one night at a nearby hotel before an early flight out the next day. Aliki's was a short five minute walk from the hotel. The restaurant is located in what was likely the restaurant of a hotel, now a... More
