A great atmosphere with happy friendly staff and the front of the restaurant opening out onto the street. The meals were very generously sized and authentically Greek. Mid range pricing was fair, and also noticed they do takeaway for a very reasonable price

Wonderful atmosphere here, like being in a Greek Taverna. Loud but not too loud to talk over. Saturday night and the place was packed, but the service was still good and very personal. The food was very good, good flavours, the special of zucchini fritters was great. For the means, the beef Stefano had a very nice flavour, and the... More

We dined here for lunch in a small group. Amazing friendly service. Open restaurant with street view. I recommend being seated around 1130am for lunch because place starts filling up fast !! Food service was fast. We all had lamb yiros which melted in the mouth. Massive portion. Recommend dining here with no complaints. Great display cabinet with Greek snacks... More

Second visit to this restaurant, and I loved my food just as much as my first visit ! We started with 3 dips and pita, the bread was so soft my normally fussy son couldn't stop eating it, the dips were flavoursome and authentic. For mains we had a share plate for 2, it was delicious and so much food... More

I have been coming to Lefkas since 1997! And I cannot say one bad thing about. The place has transformed from a small take away shop to the restaurant it is today but the food has remained true delicious Greek food! The staff are beautiful and helpful and the owner, as usual, is friendly and accomodating! I brought my baby... More

As always I was looking for things to do with the kids over the holidays, spent the morning in Southbank and the museum, feeling hungry and thirsty I tried to find a 7/11 or similar. No luck the newsagents wanted 4.50 for a 2 dollar coke. Packed up the kids, with promises of food and water, when I remembered a... More

We went for a birthday dinner (6pax). All the food was cooked perfectly and tasted devine ! It has a great atmosphere - on that if you wanted to have good table conversation, you might find it a bit loud ! Betweeen us we had trio of dips, dolmathes, lamb yiros, lamb souvla and moussaka ! Ώπα - Opa !!

Lefkas Taverna was created in 1991 as a family operated business providing Authentic Greek Cuisine as it would be made in the village. Big plates filled with plenty of flavour and a lot of love.John Theoharis took over operation of Lefkas in 2005, in this time John has altered a few things, menu, image, presentation and additions although Lefkas is still a bound family operation from front of house to back from 11am through until late. Lefkas is now bigger & better than ever.We have expanded our restaurant capacity to create more seating, atmosphere, options and events,everything on the Lefkas menu remains the same plus more. The ambience pouring through the restaurant is second to none, people are up clapping and dancing, the band create such a vibe that no one can resist. Before you know it the restaurant is dancing on the street and cheering away, (Greek Style) loud and proud! This experience is quite hard to find, also so is the wide variety of food that fills everyone’s taste buds.John has put his heart and soul into this venture and takes a lot of pride in his business and efforts. Lefkas will now become a Greek restaurant meeting any imagination or requests possible. We will now have the capacity and space to hold events such as large group birthday parties, christenings, corporate lunches or dinner’s, even weddings!Everything Lefkas has to offer is made in house from dips to desserts. We fillet and marinate our own meat including Yiros, Souvlaki, Seafood, all cooked daily and from the best local produce.Our aim is to capture and cater for our loyal customers and their friends from start to finish, whether it is takeaway or a dining experience our staff will make sure your Lefkas experience is unforgettable.Our new lunch menu will catch the eye, more options at an affordable price, efficient service, leaving you fulfilled and satisfied, our dinner menu sizes and options will also be available upon request at lunch if you want to go all out on your favourites! Our dinner menu and pricing remains the same with a few more options to choose from.Last but not least…. Freshly made honey puffs, all visible and made in front of you, quite hard to resist! Drizzled with honey syrup and a dash of icing sugar, available all day dine in or take away. We will also have a liquor licence in coming months which will allow you to sit back and be served Greek style, great food, great wine and the fantastic music!(Eat Safe Brisbane Rating - 4 stars) Weekly Live Music from 7-10pm every Friday night plus once a month on Saturdays.Remaining Dates for 2013:Sat Nov 23rd, 30th, Dec 7th, 14th and our final trading date for 2013 Sat 21st of December.Bookings are essential, please visit our website for further details
