After having spent 6 months in Nunavut I had a craving for Greek food. A friend was kind enough to take me out for dinner and a movie and so I requested if we could have Greek food. She recommended Homer's and I decided to give it a try.
We arrived for an early dinner, 4.30pm and we warmly greeted and seated. The decor is plain and simple but I liked it very much. At that time of the late afternoon, the restaurant was not crowded. Our waitress was very prompt and after reviewing the menu, we opted for the Dolmathes for our starter and my dinner partner chose the Kotopoulo Skaras and I had the Lamb Souvlaki. We both had soup as part of our main course ( mine was a vegetable soup and her's the lentil. We opted not to have any alcohol. The only disappointment was the accompanying bread basket was not the traditional toasted pita bread but a small loaf of french bread!!! It as nice, fresh and warm BUT I was hoping that since this is a family run restaurant, we would have pita.
The Dolmathes was delicious and the lemon sauce that it rested on was excellent.
The soups were delicious. My vegetable soup was light and delightful and beautifully made. My dinner partner commented that she loved the lentil soup as well.
Our main courses when they arrived ( seemed to be perfectly timed) was tasty and healthy sized portions. I opted not to have only vegetables with my lamb souvlaki. The lamb as good but abit over cooked but the vegetables were excellently done, still with a bit of crunch, bright colours and beautifully seasoned.
I must say that the thing that will definitely bring me back is the service. It was attentive, seemed perfectly timed and flawless. I never felt rushed and when dinner was over they allowed us to sit and chat for a bit before we had to leave for our movie. We declined to have any desserts this visit but I am sure to try and have some the next time I am visiting Winnipeg.
Would I come back if I am in town again, most definitely!.
