Taste of Greece

Food really good - I was in Greece so many times so I know tastes. I missed a little bit herbs but still ok. Grilled haloumi was really good ( 11.95) and enough us an appetizer for both of us. Greeak paella - 19.95 - was worth the price (sausages , shrimps,chicken breast and spicy rice ) - I... read more

I have to say, I came for a visit from Greece and went to many Greek Restaurants, but Colossus was by far the "Best" .The food ,the service was outstanding , and will recommend it to my friends. I will also be back on my next visit.

Our food was terrible and our sever (who we suspect was the owner) was awful. Very smug. The washroom was disgusting at best. Avoid this restaurant at all costs......

Recently, we gathered a group of friends to catch up. Colossus of Rhodes is the perfect venue. Don't go for the decor but if you want consistently good Grek food and friendly service, you won't be disappointed. We have eaten at this place since it opened. Some things on the menu have not changed but we have never had a... More

Colossus has been on Lakeshore near Port credit for more than 25 years. The food is awesome, the environment lively and the service is prompt. This place gets filled every night so reservations are a good idea. Plus the bar area is very small.

Food is always good service is friendly lots of selections on the menu to choose from. The chicken souvlaki is extremely good and filling. The only small complaint I would have is that the chairs are definitely not the most comfortable and when the restaurant is busy it can be a little crowded.

Standard Greek fare with some outstanding items, like the Sea Bass that my wife had tonight! Excellent Saganaki. Greek salad was okay as well. Octopus appetiser was excellent. This place has been around for a long time. Predictably reliable. The regulars love it. Could do with one or two new items. I agree with some of the comments about being... More

Understand you are entering an establishment with a serious family history behind it. You have dedicated staff, a wonderful atmosphere, fresh wholesome food that is prepared with a carful eye and tradition. Its a very busy location so book a table in advance or you will wait. Regardless, the wait is still worth it. If you want succulent Greek food,... More
