12 Islands of Stirling
Outstanding food , service , !!
Great place, owners are beautiful people and make you feel welcome.
Bed aware: this small restaurant is/can be extremely noisy; it appears to attract an enthusiastic clientele with exceptional vocal cords. Small children (ordinarily the bane of eateries) will be drowned out by the screams, bellows, and shouts of the adult patrons -- as will anyone else wanting to have a conversation with table-mates. The wait staff are eager and friendly, the Greek cuisine tends to be massively over-salted and the Green penchant for lemon is taken to acid extremes. So: a popular restaurant, but best suited to loud people with tolerant palates and no objection to paying the full tariff (ie pricey) for less-than-exceptional offerings. (The flash fried calamari were good, the grilled octopus disappointing, and the lamb chops over challenged with salt in the kitchen. Good fish, though.)
Great food and service. Very friendly and authentic. My kids loved the massive fish tank and we came home happy with lots of leftovers. I would definitely recommend and we will be back!
Ive run out of positive descriptors to review the sheer exceptional dining experience at 12 Islands.
Fresh Food, plentiful and CONSISTENTLY delicious.
Drinks perfect, pours generous.
Service is spot on customer focused despite the fact that this restaurant is packed most weekends.
Above and beyond the OWNERS Manny, Antonia and Billy are whole hearted visible, engaged and committed to the customer dining experience.
There is little that goes unseen and they are quick to rectify any missteps(which Ive never experienced) with compassion, sincerity or a comp’d drink or dessert.
Its truly the best place for miles for quality phenomenal food, a feel good vibe, service excellence and ownership pride.
Yes, it gets crowded. Yes you sometimes have to wait for a table EVEN with a reservation. I recommend you grab a drink, watch the beautiful plate procession out of the kitchen and relax in anticipation of a true delight for your taste buds!
Best octopus appetizer I have ever had. Red snapper dish was very fresh and tasty with healthy sides.
The food is always very good. This is my 4th dinner with friends and we are never disappointed in the variety and authentic flavors. The staff are mature professionals who provide that level of service. Look forward to returning!
I had a delicious family dinner at 12 Islands last Saturday night. The fish was great and the service was exceptional. Thank you for making our evening special!
Everything was wonderful, we went there on my daughters recommendations it was 3 couples and everything just loved the place. We will be back
The staff is always so nice.. very accommodating.. never say no.
Always enjoy visiting this 'island of Greek cuisine'. Everyone is always friendly and the food is good. They have a small bar and two dining rooms. Opa Opa!
AlwYs a great meal! Grilled octopus is the best
Love this restaurant but the waiter we had wasn’t patient.
Thought it was a little more expensive than I was expecting.
I would recommend the restaurant. The food is delicious but the noise level was off the charts. my husband and I were sitting next to each other and could not have a conversation. We would absolutely go back but never on a Saturday evening!!!! The waiter was a little terse as well, he was very busy and his curse was a little short
Been several times, staff and food have been great, a little on the noisy side but always a good time.
Wonderful dinner, service was very good. We will definitely will return.
Excellent fish meals
Excellent food! Excellent service! Great price. I highly recommend!
Great fresh fish and authentic Greek food. Very good and helpful staff.
Had a lovely evening. Nice food. Very friendly staff.
Great food , great service.
Invited a friend that was visiting to join me for dinner! The wait staff is amazing -- they are friendly and informative and some are Greek which adds to the flavor! The food is always well prepared, fresh and tasty!
I especially love the grilled octopus!
Took my wife out for a belated Valentine’s Day dinner. We had an 8pm reservation on Saturday night. The place is small and was packed. People were waiting in the entryway when we arrived. Food is great, though both my wife and I found a good amount of pin bones in our fish. The place is loud and it was hard to enjoy a conversation. I would definitely come back, but would come early to avoid the noise.
Food was amazing & our server was so great & funny. I’ve never been to Greece but seemed like a real authentic experience. And we got to try free shots of some Greek cinnamon liquor. Thanks so much !!
We eat here often and I often get the Mediterranean chickpea salad with grilled calamari. This particular night it was a little bland. Didn’t taste as fresh nor as sumptuous as usual but I still loved the experience and so did our friends that we brought for their first time.

We love 12 Islands. Always a fantastic meal with personal, Family feeling service.
We love this place. Amazing food, great staff, attentive service... what more could you want?
Amazing food and great service. A little noisy with the packed dining room but that is too be expected. We will definitely be back.
Very good Greek food in a nice restaurant with a great staff. What more can I say!
My second time back and the food is still incredible. Service is very attentive. And love the vibe inside. C
As usual great food and great service. Chris, waiter, is a big plus to make dinner a good experience. I have eaten at this establishment a dozen times, maybe more, and I never have a complain about it. There are many traditional Greek dishes on the menu.
Each time I come here I am never disappointed. Service and food are always on point. It is one of my favorite restaurants.
Great restaurant!! Food and service excellent! Best Greek food around.
Very welcoming place.
Always a wonderful meal and the best seafood around!
The food was wondeful. Unfortunately our experience was ruined due to the fact that our group of 13 was crowded at a table that was intended for 8 people. My guests felt uncomfortable and voiced their complaints.
12 Islands is one our favorite restaurants! Everything is delicious. Waiters are very attentive.
The food was great. Our server was attentive and caring. Very cute place and good food portions.
