Fast & friendly service, nice atmosphere and delicious food

We've been here a few times - great for couples, great for families. Always delicious, fast and friendly and very good prices too. The greek fries, we tried for the first time, were amazing! Love this restaurant!

Just had a family dinner here and I've got to say, for a family of four we got a LOT of food and the bill was far lower than I expected. Between us we had the chicken, pork and lamb souvlaki (all great!) and the lamb chops - everything was portioned well, none of us left hungry or even had... More

my husband and I have been to the Favorite Greek many times! We bring our friends, family and co-workers too! It is indeed, our favorite place to eat in Peterborough. The service has always been great as is the food! The feta Dip and "Flaming oppah cheese"(that's what I call it)is among our favorites on the menu. I recommend this... More

had a fantastic meal! Sampler platter and Calamari was a great start to the meal, most of us had the lamb, and they were nice thick chops, and prepared as we asked... Nice and rare! Service was great as well. My only criticisms are that they only serve wine by the glass or half litre, and the restaurant was extremely... More

The Favourite Greek is great for lunch or dinner, a business meeting, to meet up with friends or have a date. The service is friendly and upbeat, and the food is full of flavour. The feta and red pepper dip with pita triangles is really good although sometimes it can be hotter (spice heat not temperature wise) than other times... More

We went for lunch and for the 8.99 price tag, the plate looked little bare. I would consider the place to be casual fine dining so I expected the taste and quality to be better than the offerings from the mall food court but it was about the same but more expensive. Service was decent, clean restaurant and tastefully decorated.... More

My sons and I love this place! Very reasonable priced. Great food with good portions. Try the red pepper dip,yum! They brought more pitas for us when we ran out. Greek potatoes were better than TO's Greek Town. Movie and dinner is recommend

The lamb and beef souvlaki dinners are always cooked perfect and mixed with the Greek salad and potatoes its truly a treat. Its also nice to visit a restaurant and feel like the staff care. Every time we go the food... More

We were downtown for a meeting and running short on time, the restaurant was busy but they assured us that they could get us out on time. The food came out quickly and was excellent, the server kept checking on us and had our bill ready as soon as we asked for it. We will go back again when we... More
