Two couples, married 20+ years, went on Valentine's Day, anticipating just dinner. The food was excellent, exceptional really, and the service was perfect from the time we arrived. The owner was jubilant and providing keen oversight to make sure every diner had a terrific experience. The staff was attentive without being invasive and clearly enjoy their jobs. And, of course the belly dancers provided a cultural addition missing from so many restaurants. The subtle additions of chocolates at the table and a rose for every woman was such a nice and unexpected touch.

One couple had never eaten Greek Food and they loved everything they ordered from appetizer through dessert. I had the kabobs and my husband had the meat pie. Everyone at the table raved about the perfect spicing of the meat pie. I cannot say enough how exceptional the food was. This crew will definitely plan a return trip.

I would also be remiss if I didn't mention that we were very early for our reservation and instead of having to wait, to return later, or feeling in the way, the owner made us feel as if we'd done him a favor. Talk about a professional restauranteur. A very busy night and he never let us see them sweat. :)

We went on a Saturday before a Pacer game. It is a small intimate size. The service was excellent. I ordered from the devour downtown menu and my wife ordered from their own menu. Everything was served promptly with great presentation. The quality of their food was outstanding. If you leave hungry, it's not their fault! They also had a belly dancer! She was great and had the patrons involved! They have a free parking lot . The whole experience was fantastic and we plan on returning!! Thanks for widening our horizons!!

Passed this restaurant for years but never ventured in. Decided to try it because they participated in Devour Downtown. The superb authentic Greek cuisine was only exceeded by the hospitality of the staff and family owners of this restaurant. This is the kind of find where you walk away knowing you will be back. The only disappointment is why we never stopped here before. Thanks to Sarah our server,for explaining our dishes and taking great care of our table. Observing George the owner taking care customers made it easy to see why customers return. Thanks for a Great dining experience.

We have only been to the Greek Islands twice since we discovered it (we live an hour away and don't get to Indy often) ... once for a late lunch and this New Years Eve for dinner. Both the food and the service is outstanding. The entire staff makes their customers feel welcome as soon as you walk through the door. -Allan & Sharon

Definitely the place for Greek food in Indy. Small family owned restaurant. Highly recommend.
We have turned a lot of people on to this establishment.

Went here for lunch with two friends and had delicious Greek favorites, friendly and quick service in a comfortable and endearingly "divey" environment. We loved it! One of my friends is from Jordan and appreciates Mediterranean food and thought the pastitsio was wonderful. Thanks very much, Greek Islands!
