Good, classic Greek food with charming servers. Food is good but your average Greek food - nothing extraordinary or extra special. Great, large location right on King.

This Greek restaurant offers a Lamb shank that is to die for! The portion was very generous, tender and tasted great. My wife had filet mignon on a skewer, that was also delicious! Pricing reasonable.Parking under the building and they validate your parking ticket.

If you are thinking dinner before the theatre, these folks are superb at prompt,service. The portions are huge. Be sure to check out the daily specials, they were excellent! Hint...they have free underground parking for their patrons!

Hi, we had family visiting and tried to find a central location as well as easy access to the Royal Alex. I originally made a reservation for 14 but 20 people ended up coming. The restaurant was more than willing to accommodate our changes. We had a lovely dinner and great celebration. The food was fabulous - no complaints. I... More

Bright , open atmosphere. Excellent service. Moderate prices. Portions were large, but lacking in flavour. Tzatziki sauce required to step things up. Great location for theater, plus free validated parking underground.

We visited on a Monday as a large group of 18. Restaurant was quiet as there were no shows which was good. Good was amazing - the garlic shrimp was delicious but my peer who had the seafood souvlaki found it tin be dry. Unfortunately, the head of the table was offered the desert menu but declined and those of... More

Went there for a business lunch. Enjoyed the special and the flaming cheese but found it difficult to talk to the person on the other side of the table due to the noise. We managed through and enjoyed the meal immensely.

The food, the service, the dessert! We stopped here after the lunch rush and still we were treated wonderfully. No rush at all, beautiful environment. Absolutely worth visiting.

Thank Ron K

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
