The best tasting Greek food fresh and honestly the lamb is like candy so perfect and the mousajka to die for. Value and flavour out of this world,!

We ate here a few days after Christmas. The place was packed, which is always a very good sign. I was not disappointed. Great food. Excellent service from one waiter, not so excellent from another. We were six, and everyone ordered something different. All was more than palatable. The calamari were great. I would go back again in a heartbeat.... More

I went to there for lunch. I tried it because it looked like a real Greek restaurant, not something like Mr. Greek The decoration is full of Greek style. I ordered a light lunch, Greek wine and dolmades. Really taste good and good service.

Love Colossus!!! Consistently great food and a super fun atmosphere! Always warm, friendly and caring service, love the food, and wonderful drinks! Try the Rhodes Martini, the saganaki and fried calamari - all excellent. Their baklava is the best - warm and scented with cinnamon. Feels like a mini Greek vacation!!! We return again and again.

My husband and I have been coming to this Greek restaurant for a few years now. We have brought our friends who have enjoyed it as much as we have. This place has the BEST saganaki (flaming cheese) and grilled calamari dishes I have ever had. We are so lucky to have this gem so close to us and not... More

Out of every culture, my favourite food is by far Greek. Which means I'm picky about my greek food- I've worked as a waitress at a Family Greek restaurant so I know when it's been americanized. Firstly, the decor is beautiful. Its a small and humble restaurant, but they do go out of their way to invite you into a... More

I'm a huge fan of Greek food and this place has me coming back often. Located in beautiful downtown Oakville, it's a great area to burn off some calories once you're done indulging in the great food, service and atmosphere. Would definitely recommend to anyone who's looking for a good meal out. Nice place for a date, or simply to... More
