What an amazing restaurant! The Greek salad that came with the main dish was amazing with great Olive oil, tomatoes and a huge piece of feta cheese. I ordered Chicken Sulvaki and my wife ordered ordered the best tasting lamb Gyro's I ever had. The wine selection is eclectic and the Greek wine we had was amazing and a bargain... More

Very family oriented authentic home style cooking. Appetizers all tasted much more authentic with much better quality ingredients than the dozens of neighboring Greek, more corporate style 'restaurants'. Pre-prepared dishes displayed in the kitchen were surprisingly flavorful. Lamb in lemon sauce was a great quality lamb without the usual gristle and fat found elsewhere. Surprised and delighted by the quality... More

Delicious standard Greek dishes. Well presented. I think however the prices are a little high for what you get.

Really enjoyed the food here. It offers a lot of what other places on the Danforth offer but has really good daily specials (more like home cooked meals). The service was descent not great. As for the atmosphere...it's more like a guy's hangout. They're mostly men in this place. Not sure if you would come with a date or with... More

I'm from NYC where Astoria, Queens has a huge Greek population & some of the best Greek restaurants you'd ever want to eat in ousted Greece itself, so any Greek restaurant I visit needs to stand up to that lofty bar, and this one in Toronto's Greektown does it handily!! Wanting to actually consumer a vegetable after days of fried... More

If you want real Greek food - taste, quality and quantity - THIS is the place. Best I've had in Canada. The salad that comes with dinner is loaded with fresh, ripe tomatoes, thick slices of cucumber and onions, and great olive oil. The "barrel feta" is what you want - so much creamier than the Canadian feta. Dinner specials... More

This little restaurant is located in the greek town area of Toronto. We took the subway out to it simply because the reviews were so good. Let's just say I wasn't overwhelmed with the experience. Although very small inside, the atmosphere had a quaint feel to it. The waiter seated us at our table then he promptly asked us to... More

I discovered the restaurant/bar thanks to its high rating in TripAdvisor. It isn't big inside, and the deco is more like a bar in a strip mall. My family ate there five times - the food was great in each visit. When the waitress invited us - the first time we went - to the kitchen, I didn't know what... More

Love it, its a small place so book before a must go visit. I didn't book, they put me at the bar, it was very busy. I love that it's a small place and family run by George, who is amazing and very hospitable. I got lamb chops for dinner it comes with roast pots and rice, yum yum. I'm... More

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
