We have been visiting Islamorada for over twenty years and have always dined at this restaurant. We ate there twice this month and it was excellent. The first visit was a party of six and the second a party of four. Entrees ranged from fresh yellowtail to veal,beef and pasta. All were well prepared and enjoyed. Desserts put the finishing...

Although the service was glacial, the food was excellent and the atmosphere was very splendid. There was an air of classical Italian/Greek culture but nothing was too overstated.

We were traveling to Duck Key and stopped for a late dinner/snack. Found Old Tavernier by accident and best accident ever! Server Penelope was AWESOME! We decided due to late hour we were just having appetizers and salad. We split the Wedge salad, INCREDIBLE! and added in escargot and stone crab claws (it was in season yea us!). Topped it... More

What a find! We were staying nearby, at The Coconut Palm Inn, and this restaurant was on their list. We ate early and had no problem in getting a great table. Our waitress, Stephanie, was a delight and if we had been staying longer we would have returned, to one of her tables. The menu was extensive and we both... More

A great place to have a great dinner, white table cloth, but without the big expense. I highly recommend this restaurant. A wonderful Greek family owns it. They showcase Mediterranean and local seafood fare. The pizza is amazing, too, but in bar area only. Food is outstanding. Service is awesome. Regulars are always remembered and appreciated! 👍🏼😃😋

A bit more formal with a more cosmopolitan menu than most of the local fish/seafood restaurants. The food and service were excellent and we enjoyed the diverse menu selections.

Went because a friend recommended. Nice atmosphere and decor. Even though it was a Friday night, was seated immediately. Not crowded at all. Took waitress' recommendation and ordered the "shrimp" special. Soup or salad was part of it. Ordered the onion soup. When brought it was barely warm enough to melt the cheese on top and was very light on... More

Some of the best food, we've ever tasted. Go enjoy. We went the first night,and couldn't wait to go the second night we were in the area. Staff in the bar were friendly and we'd highly recommend it.

Thank Jack B
