After reading the reviews on here I was excited to try this place. The restaurant is small, with seating for 22 and is nestled away in a brick house in a side street area of downtown. Our waitress was super knowledgeable and gave us some great food recommendations. After hearing my friend and I attempting to plan a Greek island... More

Our first clue, or was it warning, as to how the evening would turn out was that they were out of menus when we were seated in the half-full restaurant for our 7:15 reservation. When it arrived, the menu looked interesting and we were quickly served drinks, and a little more slowly our order was taken. This is a tapas... More

Amazing food, wine, service, atmosphere. We asked Zach and Sharon to surprise us instead of ordering ourselves and they served us delicious tapas. We then had amazing dessert, altogether it was a fantastic experience, we will definitely go back! Highly recommend it.

I have been to this restaurant twice in the last few months and both time our evenings were delightful. Food is wonderful, pace slow and measured, so you can enjoy the company of friends and savour the different plates. Broad range of choices and ability to cater to different food needs meant everyone could enjoy the mean accompanied by some... More

Wen there with some friends from work and I have to say it was really good. Everything was top notch. I would recommend making a reservation since the place is very popular.

Fantastic Greek food served tapas/small plates style. We ended up,ordering 8 different choices plus desert. Huge variety. We tried kangaroo (favourite), ginger beef, ouzo shrimp, tzanziki, grilled mushrooms, grilled halmouli, Gorgonzola gnocchi (favourite). Baklava infused ice cream was amazing. Waitress very knowledgable and describes dish when delivered. We ordered 1 to 2 plates at a time, which made for a... More

Aroma Meza is highly appreciated on Trip Advisor so we thought we would reserve a table for our 6th anniversary. This beautiful, simple yet elegant restaurant lived up to expectations and exceeded with some dishes. First off, I reserved a table by phone - they have a good reservation system online, but since I knew the space was quite intimate... More
