We made reservations online. The restaurant was packed on Saturday night. The decor reminds me of being on a Greek Island. The tables are close together. We couldn't eat outside because it was raining. We ordered a bottle of Thalia Sauvignon Blanc & mineral water....More

We have eaten here many times when traveling into Oakville. The food is always good. Great for lunch or dinner. Fantastic location in downtown Oakville with a nice outdoor patio too. We will be back.

Colossus is on the Main Street in down town Oakville. The tables outside are great, really villagey feel to it. Large Greek menu - spinach pies were delicious. Great for a lunch stop in between shopping.
