Having grown up in Chicago and lived in New York for 8 years before moving to Toronto a year and a half ago, my wife and I have been searching for the type of excellent, authentic Greek food to which we are accustomed. We had only found good Greek food in Toronto until this restaurant - Athens deserves the rating... More

The best Greek restaurant located in Greek Town of Toronto. The restaurant gives you a chance to feel the real Greek soul in Canada. The grilled pork is my favorite... However, you can taste the other Greek dishes also.

I love Greek food and have tried every restaurant on the Danforth. Athens Restaurant had great chewy souvlaki. The tzaziki was a little salty and runny but still tasy.

We just had dinner at Athens. It was our first visit, and will not be our last! A family-owned and operated establishment. Very unassuming, but it is clear that it is a regular spot for the locals. As we told the owner, it feels as though you are having dinner at a friend's home. Great quality food and friendly and... More

This is the best Greek restaurant outside of Greece. If you have the opportunity to eat here don't miss it. We live an hour away so we sometimes make an overnight trip into the city just to come here. We've been six times now and haven't ordered from the menu yet. We've gone with the specials each time and have... More

I was taken here by some friends while visiting Toronto. It's a regular haunt if theirs and was keen to see how it stacked up to their reviews. This is no chain restaurant and it ain't real flash inside, BUT it all adds to the authenticity. Food was amazing, wine terrific and George the owner and his staff all super... More

I went there with my parents after a friend recommended it. This is a very unassuming place. We first entered the restaurant feeling a bit weird. There was one Mangas sitting at the end of the bar which is situated at the front. The dining area is at the back. He gave us a smile and said hello. This is... More

I avoided this restaurant because the men that are always standing outside smoking and drinking made me think that it was more of a bar than a restaurant. One night, a friend took us there. I've now been back 5 or 6 times, and it has been consistently excellent. The lamb chops and souvlaki are superb. I particularly like the... More

The food was unbelievable from the appetizers to the main courses. True authentic Greek food. By far, one of the best Greek restaurants we've eaten at. Try the lamb chops and shrimps.
