Philos has such good lunchtime specials and monthly specials that it really draws a crowd, especially the day after all the seniors get their CPP/OAS. Seniors are savvy shoppers and if they are occupying a large percentage of the space then it must be a deal and probably tastes good too. The monthly special ending on 30th Nov was Chicken... More

Ok I must admit I have been hearing about this Philo's for quite some time. I was reluctant to try it as all the other Cornwall restaurant suggestions simply grossed me out. Tonight, I was brave and decided to give it a try. Well here we go for the long-winded review. Upon our arrival, we were able to park right... More

Had the chicken souvlaki. Big salad, great rice, perfectly cooked chicken. Potatoes were good but lacked That lemony herb taste I look for, but thats personal pref and 4th were still good. My server Tasha was nice if a little evasive or rushed at times. Wasn't busy. Portion size for price unbeatable. Would recommend for a general meal.

Their Greek food is wonderful. They also offer many other food options, which are all also great. Definitely recommend for casual or family dinner. They're a favourite in Cornwall and are usually quite busy, but the service is always good.

I have been to this restaurant for years and all the food is good but the management is horrible. We've been there tons of times with my family, my family, my church, groups... We are very satisfied with the food and even the prices are reasonable. However, we always have problems with the management that is not business at all.... More

our waitress was pushy and rude. we ordered one of the "specials" and were made to feel like we were an inconvenience in doing so. nothing was offered from the special menu - we had to ask for everything that was included. Soup tasted like tomato paste, alfredo sauce was NOT homemade in the least, 4 little shrimp accompanied, cake... More

PROS : Always good food, plenty to eat, tasty, full plates, ice cold beer. CONS : Some waiter / waitresses could use some training as to customer needs without having to ask, some could pay more attention to customer. OVER ALL : Great family restaurant

I can only compare this greek restaurant to other greek restaurants outside Cornwall. So many of the reviews rave about the place but to be honest, the food is fine, nothing great and I've eaten at much better places with better decor. It is a very good value mind you. Three adults ate here and the amount before tip was... More
