We have been a few times here... lunches, dinners, drinks, and patio season. One thing I would like to try is their breakfast which I see them advertisting on a sandwich board. OVerall menu is typical of greek food. Appetizers prompt, portioning generous as per the usual Greek portioning, etc..

A perfect Greek restaurant for a couple or a group. The food is excellent!! Nice location downtown Oakville, although leave extra time to find a parking spot. Great atmosphere and service complement the broad and excellent menu. Many times we've also used their take out service and a few friends have hosted large parties catered by Colossus. Always good, always... More

I turned 60 last August. My wife and I wanted to invite family and friends for this occasion. We were late to organise for this event and could not find a place to go to. We had to fly to Seattle for a family gathering early in the month and were quite lost as what to do for my event.... More

Out for dinner with my favorite brother-in-law and our wives. We are all very much into healthy eating and enjoy mostly Mediterranean fair. As soon as you walk in ... you feel the warmth of the environment and take a step forward into another part of ethnic Canada. What a wonderful way to start the evening. Appetizers: We ordered the...

I have only been here once and the food didn't leave enough of an impression to return, but I may try again. The place is small and cozy but the lighting could be a little dimmer at dinner time. The food could be improved, especially the sauces. The menu is a little limited. The service was slow but would try... More

My chicken dinner was tasteless and the chicken was over cooked. The grilled vegetables were burned. The waiter ( I wish I remembered his name), tall idiot that wears glasses was full of arrogant comments that I didn't care to listen to. The young punk at the bar another tall geeky guy with acne also had a pompus attitude. Don't... More

Were pleasantly surprised to get last minute reservations when seeing the good reviews this restaurant has been receiving. Our dining experience was not a disappointment. Very large dinner portions and piping hot. Waiter was very knowledgeable and friendly. Only complaint and disappointment was the volume of the music (very loud for such a small space) combined with the loud chatter... More

The service has always been great, prices are reasonable, serving sizes are good and the food is even better! Having a gluten allergy can make it difficult to eat out, but Colossus is one of my favourite places to enjoy a safe meal and they accommodate my needs. P.S. They have gluten free fried calamari. Anyone gluten free knows how... More
