Dinner and a Movie is always a hit with the group of ladies I go with from work. Its our usual wednesday night treat. The food is alway consistant and the server knows how and what we like. For the price you cant beat that deal,

Great place for Greek food in Peterborough. The owner, George, really takes the customer's feedback to heart. The lunch special is right on for the money. Great place.

Good place on George Street. Menu is somewhat limited, but food is very good. Server appeared a bit confused, asking every guest that evening "do you have reservation?", although place was not full. Odd ?

Great food for the price. Love the kebabs and the red potatoes. Very quaint spot in the heart of town. Servings are great for what you pay. Never leave hungry.

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

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
