We always choose a beautiful sunny day to have lunch at Baranga's On The Beach because we enjoy their patio. Unlike most patios in Hamilton Ontario that face the road, Baranga's faces Lake Ontario with greenery all around! We feel like we're escaping from the City while we are there. I have to mention this is where I Ate Fish... More

This is a really nice place down by the water front. The food was OK, nothing spectacular but it does taste good. The service was a little lacking as we waited to be greeted for over 5 minutes while there were staff talking behind the bar ignoring us.

We went for our last visit of the season, as they shut down for the winter. We are never disappointed at Barangas. Food, service and atmosphere are always fantastic! Unfortunately the patio was closed because of the weather, but we look forward to returning in the spring for sangria on the patio!

I have to share this about Baranga's service. Haven't been there in ages and went with the family. It's a lovely spot and we had a lovely table with a view. Annoying people next to us, but they did leave eventually. Regardless, the menu impressed the kid with some vegetarian option and I enjoyed the souvlaki. The husband however wanted... More

We were there for lunch on a hot day, sat on lower patio overlooking lake and trails, beautiful! The menu has many choices for lunch, and some exciting summer drinks. The service was really good considering how busy they were. Would definitely recommend this restaurant, especially on a warm afternoon or evening.

Recently visited this spot with some work colleagues. We waited a few moments to secure a table on the gorgeous patio overlooking the water. Our server was prompt and friendly, the food was good but not great. We started with some dips which all tasted about the same, garlic (which I love) was basically the main flavor. The dips were...

Baranga's on the Beach is beautifully located just steps away from Lake Ontario. When visiting Barangas you can expect a resort like feel where you can sit back relax and enjoy the spectacular view from our spacious patio. Barangas offers a variety of traditional Greek and Mediterranean dishes, as well as finger foods and burgers. Our cocktail menu is extensive, from Margarita's and Pina Colada's to pitchers of Sangria and a variety of draft beer. See you at the beach!
