    I left 3 1/2 years ago from S.Florida to move to Greece to take care of my mother with all the antiAmerican hate i get in this neiborhood and seeing it from speakers and political partys on their news station , the day i return to S.Florida i may not eat but break every greek resturants windows and tell them to forget their roots the greek cultures died a long time ago with the ancients that we learned from and tell them if they want to talk about where they came from to leave

      George, please don’t be so mad at your neighbors stupidity. They are suffering a bad economic hardship and think it helps them to blame the Americans. Many cultures around the world dislike Americans because of our economy. I know this sounds contrite, but turn the other cheek and be nice to them. Only by your consistent niceness will they change and see they were wrong. I had to go through this my self before so I know it works. Showing kindness in the face of adversity confuses people and they don’t know how to react. Remember it takes two to fight. Anyway, good luck and put a smile on your face and say “hello” often in American.

      Point 1: Dude, learn how to spell in English. That would be a good start as far as some form of communication.
      Point 2: Learn to be less hatefull.
      You may in turn be surpised with kindness.

      • Rodger

        Greeks are very warm people – trust me.
        Remember be kind and smile. The people of Greece are warm & so is the climate.

    • James

      Great idea George, return to S Florida and break the windows of hard working Greeks who have absolutely nothing to do with your neighbours stupidity in Greece, thats the most absurd thing i’ve ever heard! not all Greeks are anti-American, The United States has the largest Greek community outside of Greece afterall.

    Greek Isles Taverna is excellent. The people at My Big Fat Greek Restuarant are nice, but the food is just a bit better at Greek Isles.

    Im almost afraid to post this because it will likely just make the wait time worse. But I have to say that the Top pick without a doubt is The Greek Island Taverna in Lauderdale.

    Make the drive regularly from Key Biscayne. Well worth it!!
