The owners of Taverna Kyma have had plenty of practice serving skordalia, hummus, and moussaka. With a half dozen other Greek restaurants in South Florida, places synonymous with an Aegean brand of paaaaartaaay, they've cornered the market. As much fun as the other joints are, with all that smashing crockery and table dancing, Kyma has turned out to be our favorite. Let's say the vibe is a little less vibrant, the Med-club music on the sound system a little cooler, the clientele a bit more likely to be falling in love than falling into the Intracoastal. Kyma seems to have smoothed out the kinks with better service and food than its trashier sisters. And with fewer distractions, you can better focus on their four versions of saganaki (flamed with brandy, seared with tomato, served with shrimp, feta with oregano); the umpteen seafood appetizers (crabs, scallops, shrimp, mussels, octopus, sardines, smelts, squid); the whole spit-roasted lamb or pig (order in advance!); the kebabs and vegetable meze. Add a few Kyma Koukla Cosmopolitans and you'll want to hop on a table, too — but take it on home.

May I respectfully take exception to your article regarding a comparative analysis of Taverna Kyma in Boca, and our Fort Lauderdale Opa !As the Owner and first Franchise of Taverna Opa - Fort Lauderdale, I am thoroughly offended !We have elevated the name to new heights, ... receiving awards from 411, Chamber of Commerce, Parenting Magazine, SF Boating, the High Riser, etc -- voted the "Best Restaurant, ...In the article/Blog under your "best of 2008" you state : " ... the clientele a bit more likely to be falling in love than falling into the Intracoastal. Kyma seems to have smoothed out the kinks with better service and food than its trashier sisters."Again; with all due respect, have you visited our establishment ? Have you tasted our food ? How can you possibly outright state that we are trashy ?Perhaps an apology may be in order.

Thank youMichael Kasdaglis, DCSWTaverna Opa Fort lauderdaleOwner and VP of Operations

Disappointed. Doesn't compare with Greek Island Taverna near the Galt Ocean Mile (Oakland Pk Blvd) in FLL.
