Taverna Kyclades
The Greek banter rising from the back patio ought to tip you off: This sunny spot is one of the more authentic tavernas among Astoria’s Hellenic roster. Crisp calamari, flash-fried sardines and succulent grilled scallops are as fresh and deftly cooked as those you’d find at a seaside spot. Dessert, cinnamon-dusted galaktoboureko (custard), is on the house, a gracious touch that makes this odyssey all the more worthwhile.

I moved to the states 6months ago and this restaurant rivals great taverns in Greece. You have to try the spinach pie , the whole grilled fish and the calamari.

A couple of years ago we moved out of Astoria and I wish I could have taken this place with me.  The fish is some of the freshest in the city.
