Love, love, love the food here. So tasty! I had the chicken souvlaki with tzatziki sauce. Yummy! Couple of small things...the gravy while tasty, had a few lumps in it of not totally heated gravy. The restaurant is a bit chilly in winter, so bring a sweater. And the waitresses shouldn't be eating behind the counter. But the food is... More

Over the Coals is my favourite restaurant to eat at in Portage. Their portion sizes are huge so you never get hungry an hour after eating there. Their Greek chicken salad is amazing, as well as their gyros. Great customer service. All around awesome restaurant!

We were looking for a lunch that would not be too heavy.This was the first time here .The waitress was very friendly and attentive. The food was delicious and presented well.We had a full Greek salad which was freshly made dressing just right. The special was chicken pie wrapped in pyllo pastry great a pleasant suprise

Server was pleasant and the food was very good and very large portions. The poutine plates were in the $12 range but they served as a full meal. The portions were huge as each one in our family took food home. The restaurant is not very large so not good for a very large party. Salads were also large servings... More

Best place in PlP to eat at. Eat-in or order out. They do catering also. High quality food for a reasonable price

If you are hungry and don't want to blow the budget, OVER THE COALS is where to go in Portage La Prairie. Have eaten there probably 6 or 7 times in the last 2 years and it is my favourite local eatery. Large portions and reasonably priced. Not a lot of tables though but they do takeout too. You won't...

We found this little treasure on Trip Advisor while doing business in Portage La Prairie! Small & quaint but certainly bustling with customers! My husband ordered the lunch special and I the pork souvlaki and lemon potatoes with a side of Greek salad. The lemon potatoes were the best I've tasted and the souvlaki was amazing!! Would definitely make a... More

Almost always love what we order. We never leave hungry. My husband and I often come here on our date nights. Only problem with this restaurant is that it's a little small. Not recommended for big gatherings unless you call ahead.

Over the Coals has become my new favourite place. I still tend to order the same items, but find the quality of the food to be much better. I only wish I could get Bill's Sticky Fingers' tzaziki with OTC's food. Still not much of a fan of the tzaziki. I will say, I order take-out a lot, and there's... More
