Arrived just after six o'clock on a Friday night without a reservation. They said no problem and led us to a small table in a crowded area way at the back of the restaurant. Drink order and appetizers came promptly and then we became invisible as the waitress had too many tables all at the same time to contend with.... More

We live near Toronto's sizable Greektown and have frequented its shops and eateries for decades, so our assessment here might be more objective than most. This is a solid choice, offering very good food and good service. We've only eaten here once, but plan to bring relatives next time. I am done. The end.

Our server really made the experience lovely...he was very friendly and did not rush us. Everyone enjoyed their meals. The calamari dinner was quite large and my friend from England was impressed. A vegetarian in our group really enjoyed the vegetarian moussaka. I tasted it too and thought it was great! It would be nicer if they could try to... More

My Wife and I tried Colossus for the first time earlier this week as a dinner date. Have to say, the food was very well done with large portions for the price. We both played it safe with the Chicken Souvlaki, which tasted as expected. Service was excellent, food was nicely prepared. Will certainly go back again next time we're... More

Colossus is a great place to go in Oakville for Greek food. We chose to order from the Taste Of Oakville menu. The salad was fresh, the escargot plentiful, the lamb delicious and the dessert more than I should have eaten but couldn't resist. Portions are generous. Our waitress was friendly and easily explained the different meal preparations. My only... More

Located right on Lakeshore in Oakville, this restaurant serves traditional Greek food with a wonderful, cozy atmosphere. Servers are helpful in choosing your dish. A small outdoor space is also available overlooking the shops on Lakeshore.

Was able to have a late lunch here. Very good and friendly service. Really liked the bread with the various dipping oil. Probably eat too much bread as then could not do justice to the lovely lamb burger !

Had a great time there with my girlfriend. They serve complimentary bread with tasty oils. Service was quick and friendly. Food was delicious! I would recommend trying it. If you're eating after 6PM, make a reservation!

Ever so lovely location, pretty restaurant, but too many flies around the table, which made me think that the kitchen might not have been as clean as I thought. Food was good, not too special, but filling, and it was affordable. The waitress was on her own when my two friends and I arrived, so the service was not ideal.... More

Wow, it was a Tuesday night and we were a bit bored and not to excited about the notion of having Campbell's soup and a tuna sandwich. I said let us try a restaurant in our home town of Oakville that we have never tried before. We spun the wheel and Colossus came up. Holy cow...I felt like I just... More
