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

Visited this restaurant last evening with friends and was pleasantly surprised. We each ordered different dishes and they were all excellent. Service was efficient and friendly. Prices reasonable. Definitely will go again.

Going to Colossus is a treat. Weather you visit this or the second Port Credit location you will not be disappointed. Incredible food, so tasty - ample portions with explosions of flavour for your mouth. Well priced. Authentic Greek decor and very friendly good service.

We had a wonderful Greek dinner and tested the international menu from Mac & Cheese to Lemon Soup and various lamb recipes. Adaptable to the ages from 3 to 73 and excellence in all respects.

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
