I have been here many times with family and friends from Peterborough. I just love this place. It's so classy. However, the price is reasonable. My favourite item on the menu is the Grilled Octopus. I mean it is just so well done it is like living a dream. The atmosphere is simple elegance not overpowering. The service is individualized... More

We were quite enthusiastic about eating good Greek food, and really enjoyed the meal as we ate it, but within an hour we had headaches and unquenchable thirsts - the kind you get from too much salt and hidden additives/flavour enhancers. Shame.

Definitely a cut above the norm. The meals, Anna's special stuffed lamb chops and the Greek sausage, were both excellent in flavour and presentation. A very good greek salad both in size and taste was included. The service was attentive and relaxed and George not only took your money; but also took an interest in his guests. A return visit...

The service is personal and prompt. George is a very good & friendly host. The knowledge George has regarding the wine list is awesome. The best Greek food in Peterborough by far. I would recommend this restaurant. The staff is all very friendly. Anna does a wonderful job in the kitchen.

The service was the only thing that wasn't 5 stars. Well except the one ply toilet paper in the washrooms that is pretty sad. But the food was cooked like something off of Hell's Kitchen and was prepared as if chef Ramsey was managing. Would defiantly recommend this place to anyone who likes greek food. Best make reservations tho we... More

Really loved eating here. I am a tourist so I can't really compare to other local restaurants that much, but this place was delightful. The waiter was very classy and polite, the owner was friendly and really nice. The food was delicious too and the prices are low for such a meal, especially compared to other places which would sell... More

George and Anna will always offer a smile, as well as Patrick who has been taking care of us the 3 times in the last couple of weeks. Food is very tasty and a good recommendation would be to start with the white wine of the house, and then continue with the red. There are some other wine selections, but... More

My wife and I have long been customers at The Original Greek. We went for dinner 2 days ago and found that the restaurant had been completely renovated with new decor, new colours, and a fantastic new menu which has many new items, but preserves Anna's classic dishes. As ever, George's welcome and extensive wine list were to the fore.... More

My husband and I went to the Original Greek recently and were pleased to be presented with authentic Greek meals, delicious ! Admittedly the decor could use updating, it is probably the same decor it originally opened with....but our waitor was very pleasant, attentive without be obtrusive...and the meal divine...so yes we would go back !

We have been regular customers at this fine dining establishment for over ten years and have never had a bad experience. We visit at least once every month or two and the service and food are always exceptional. George and Anna are lovely, welcoming hosts who consistently make our evening very special. George has great selections of wine and I... More
