I have visited Colossus a number of times and I would certainly recommend it to anyone looking for something fresh, meaty, and European. First and foremost, the servers are always friendly and attentive, even if it's busy. They show you to your seat, and take your order. If my memory servers right, they even brought out fresh bread with olive... More

After living in Greece for a few years, I am always on the look out for GREAT Greek food (besides what I cook) and Colossus really hit the mark. We just did a variety of appetizers and each one was outstanding. You have to try the grilled octopus. Couldn't believe they had Bougatsa!

Excellent food, excellent value, excellent choice of food for The Taste of Oakville menu. We checked all restaurants' menus and chose this restaurant and were pleased with our choice. We had the three-course dinner menu for $30 per person. Kim's service was outstanding! She's one of the best waiters/waitresses we have met. She's very efficient and genuine in providing a... More

The service is great. the food is fantastic. Portion sizes are large. This was the first time in a long time that I wasn't able to finish my... More

Wonderful Greek cuisine in the heart of Oakville. Food quality is consistently good. Call for a reservation as this restaurant is usually busy.

We dropped by Sunday night for a meal and were not disappointed - this was our second visit. The restaurant was quite busy but we were attended to quite quickly. Our meals were well presented and tasty. Well worth the price. I was happy to see that the food remained consistently good.

We stopped into this small Greek restaurant after an event we attended in Oakville. We were unfamiliar with the restaurant and area, but decided to try it out. We didn't have reservations but they were able to accommodate us since it was still early. We were seated and attended to quickly. Everything from start to finish was very nice. No... More

It's been a couple of years since we've been to Colossus. Decided to go last weekend. It's a very small restaurant, so I would highly recommend making a reservation. The service is top notch and although it's a small restaurant, they don't rush you out the door to make room for more guests. We had one of the evening's specials:... More

I am not sure how lamb poutine becomes Greek food, and there were a few other such confusing items. Having said that, we were a group of ten and everybody enjoyed their meals. The village salad was awesome and the prices were quite reasonable. The only real complaint was the noise level. It was very busy and very loud and... More
