Menu outside was different than inside. We had 13 people in our party, and ordered several platters on the menu as well as hummas and spicy feta. The chicken "platter" was a few thin slices of chicken on a bed of lettuce - a greek salad with chicken is what I would call it. We ordered 6 of these, and they came nowhere close to filling up the men who had ordered them. The gyro was a little dry. Wouldn't go again, bit it was nice to see the ships, and the people walking by.

Main dish potion was quite small compared to the salad in their platters. That made it overpriced and u satisfying.

From Our Editors

When Liz and Jerry Bishop were dating in the 1960s, they discovered they both adored Greek food and spent hours dining in Greek restaurants. Luckily, they were living in Chicago at the time, and the cuisine’s presence in Greektown and beyond kept the couple well fed. But when they moved to San Diego in 1978, the food wasn’t as prevalent, so they decided to open their own restaurant where they could serve the meals of their beloved culinary style.

With its terra cotta roof and tables perched seaside, Greek Islands Cafe looks like it was plucked from a Mediterranean village. The building wasn’t actually brought from Greece, but the recipes were—the chef, Peggy, builds dishes using traditional recipes from relatives living in the foothills of Mount Olympus. Beyond the recipes, the Bishops have developed some traditions of their own. Those who order the cafe’s saganaki, athenian chicken, and souvlaki might have the food served by the couple’s children, Chris and Melissa, or fellow patrons who just felt like stretching their legs.
