While a trip to Astoria certainly won't fool anyone into thinking they've landed in Santorini, spending a few hours at Taverna Kyclades will at least provide an opportunity to sample the cuisine. The restaurant has built a reputation for serving up the freshest Greek seafood in the neighborhood. Service can be a bit harried at dinner, so if possible, come for lunch.
