Greek Food at it's Best

We have take out from here frequently, and it's always very good fresh food. Occasionally they seem forget a salad but that's okay as the food is good and the prices are reasonable. Comfortable atmosphere and consistent friendly staff.

This was our second evening at Colossus - on both occasions the food was excellent, very authentic and exceptionally tasty. The menu is vast and the pricing is good. We did have terrible service tonight - the manager/owner was very good however our waitress forgot almost everything we asked for, messed up our order and just ignored various requests we... More

Menu was good, lots of variety. Service was fine. Premises are a bit on the small side but they do have a seating area on the pavement in summer.

Experienced this restaurant for dinner with a family group of about 10, including 2 children. They seated us in a room to one side which was open to the rest of the restaurant so we did not feel shut away from the action. The food was extremely delicious and well-prepared, authentic Greek. Service was prompt, friendly and accommodating. Atmosphere was... More

What can I say. Good is always great. Big portions and always great food. No matter what a you order on the menu. Service is fabulous and a great atmosphere inside. What you are looking for in a restaurant is always consistency. And I have been coming here for years and never get disappointed. Thanks Manny!

The food was fine. The service was fine. That's about as far as I'm prepared to go. Nothing wrong at all but nothing to rave about. Glad I went but definitely don't feel the need to go again.

We visited Colossus last week and overall were very impressed. Restaurant is located in downtown Oakville, has nice authentic atmosphere, great service. Food overall was very flavorsome, some dishes were a bit salty for my taste. For appetizers we ordered Saganaki and Kopanisiti (spicy feta dip). The dip was great, very tasteful, a bit salty. Saganaki was a bit overdone.... More

Excellent food, nice atmosphere. The servers were great, very cheerful. The food is very good. Authentic Greek. Nice place for a family meal or a couple romantic meal. We parked on the street out front and paid for parking but you don't have to pay street parking after 6pm. The souvlacki and seafood pasta are very good. We will go... More

Was strolling downtown Oakville and decided to stop by Colossus for dinner. No reservation, but they got us in within half an hour on a Saturday night. It was very busy and the atmosphere was great. Great food, great service! Will be back.
