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.

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.

We reserved for mothers day and it was busy. Our first clue should have been the table location. The food was horrible and tasteless unless you want plenty of oil. They offered free cocktail to mbers in the party but most of our party had left. I call the manager and kept being interrupted! The manager apologized in non apologetic... More

My daughter spent time in Greece and when she comes home to visit she asks if we can go to the Colossus. We really like their assorted appetizer platter. There were 3 of us but we ordered the one for 2 people and there was more than enough. Our main dishes were very tasty, and more than ample. My daughter... More

Always a family favourite. Our daughter and family who live in Bermuda love this restaurant The ambience is special and the staff always very welcoming and attentive. A wide range of traditional Greek cuisine but my true favourite is the Greek paella! Wines and beers are of Greek origin and plenty of choice. Not too expensive and well situated on... More

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!
