Do you like Greek food? So, I have some great options for the best Greek Restaurants in South Florida!

The first restaurant is Rafina in Boca Raton.

What I liked:

  • In addition to having a menu with several options, it has an outdoor part that overlooks a small lake.
  • It’s beautiful and charming.
  • If you go before sunset, you won’t regret it.

My favorite appetizers are the “marides” smelts, reminiscent of our fried majubinha/sardines, the lollipop chicken wings, and the hummus “dips,” tzatziki, and melitzanosalata. I love snacking, I always get appetizers and never order dinner, but my “husband” always orders Lamb Chops!

My second recommendation is Ethos in Coconut Creek, located in the Promenade Plaza.

The atmosphere is modern, and the food combines Greek and Mediterranean. The seasoning is terrific, and the food has a lot of flavor!

My favorites are GREEK YOGURT & CUCUMBER, LEMON CHICKEN SOUP, CHEESE SAGANAKI, KEFTE, and all the other dishes that are in the “Small Plates” part of the menu, I have never ordered a starter.

You can see that I love an aperitif!

And, of course, my husband loves Lamb Chops.

The third suggestion is for those who like something more popular, like music and dancing on the table, the choice is Taverna Opa in Hollywood.

On Fridays and Saturdays after 7pm, there are DJs and Belly Dancers; if you want more tranquility, go during the week or earlier, like the photo below, when I went with some friends on a rainy Thursday.

In Fort Lauderdale, there is the Greek Islands Taverna (in the photo below), a more traditional place that has been here since 1999.

Also nearby is Thasos, with an ultra-modern atmosphere that leaves nothing to be desired.

It all really depends on where you live and how much you want to drive, I go everywhere, and my friends know a phrase that I constantly repeat:

“When you have a car, nothing is to far…”
