Best steak ever

The NY strip steak may be the best that my wife and I have ever had! The Greek salad was fresh and delicious and it was great having dinner in a small local restaurant! Opa!

The food was lovely and generous. I had crispy soft fried zucchini for an appetizer and the veal stew (tender and flavorful) as a main. Prices are excellent as well. It was very quiet when we were there and "informal" does not really describe how informal the place actually is (informal as in "hang-your-grocery-shoppingbag-on-the-coat-rack-while-you-eat type of informal). Not really the... More

I recently visited Athens restaurant for the second time while visiting friends in the Toronto area (it had been two years between visits) and I must say that if anything, the food was even better this time! This is an authentic Greek restaurant with a great family feel and amazing food. Highly recommended if ever visiting Greektown in Toronto

This restaurant is totally unlike the other places on the danforth. It does not look like much, but be brave and go try it! You get to go into the kitchen and figure out which special looks the best (although they will make other things too). We had some of the best lamb I have ever had - in some... More

If you happen to be in this Greek neighbourhood don't doubt it, go to Athens and you will enter a Greek house. Dishes change daily! How creative is that! Everybody in is Greek and seem to have a good time with each other. Enter this place and enjoy the ride. Thank you Trip Advisor for pointing us at Athens and... More

This is the place that you would go for a quick meal. I believe that it needs a renovation. There are some walls with exposed plywood. If you are just looking for a quick good meal for good value you can go here but it's not the greatest atmosphere

With so many restaurants out there it's hard to find a unique restaurant experience. Unless you've been lucky enough to Greece before, Athens is a truly unique experience, and we just love introducing our friends to it.

Staying in East End

Neighborhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
