“Excellent Greek food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

I've been to Estia numerous times, and it has been consistently fantastic. The menu has a lot of choices, and even the simple items like the fries are wonderful. I've tried a lot of different items and they have all been great, no hit or miss here. The portions are a fair, if not a generous size, and the prices are good for the quality. The decor is elegant without being pretentious. Whenever my friends and I have something to celebrate, or want to go somewhere with a little more class than pizza corner or the back of our fridges, this is our choice. Great for families, friends, and perfect for a date.

Also, the olive oil that they serve with the bread at the beginning is the Nectar of the Gods, I swear. Magic.

“Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2013

We eat at this restaurant frequently. We always have great service, great wine and delicious food. Everything we have tried so far we liked. Our food always comes quick. The atmosphere is relaxed and comfortable.Our favorite has to be the saganaki and the grilled vegetable panini.

“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

They make a really nice humus with pita here. It has a bit more texture than some other's I have eaten and it tasted great. Nicely balanced favours. The lamb souvlaki was good, and the prices for wine by the bottle where very reasonable.

The service was good.

“Best Greek in Halifax”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

This is one of my favorite restaurants in Halifax. I've been here a couple of times with my friends, and each time we had wonderful servers. On my first visit, I wasn't completely satisfied with the food as my pita was drenched in oil, but the second time was much better. The cocktails are delicious and I considered ordering a second Baklava for dessert. I would recommend Estia to anyone who loves Greek food.
