“An old Greek places but good food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

I lunched at Orama as part of a business break while in the vicinity. Here's how my experience went:

1- Location
Orama is located at the end Parc street just a little north of the Montreal Downtown area. normally it is accessible on foot for all visitors living around it but woulod definitely require other modes of transportation for those living on the other side of Parc. The street is regularly frequented by buses and there are a lot of stops in the vicinity. From the same perspective, Orama is just a block away from the Parc subway station. So it is definitely accessible on foot from there for a couple of minutes walk.

2- The place itself
It is old school. As soon as you step in you can definitely see that the place has been around for sometime as the walls, and floors have the signs of the years. It only has an indoor seating area (Not much to see outside anyway). It is averagely large and holds a series of tables although well spaced from one another (hence providing the right privacy) are still fairly old. Same goes for the chairs whose styles seem to be dating back to a couple of decades.
The place does not seem to have much of technology in it neither as I noticed that orders are taken down on paper and the check is handed over on that same piece of paper with a manual calculation of the sum of the value of the food you ordered.

3- Menu and prices
The food is of regular Greek cuisine where you will find anything from the famous Greek salads all the way to Souflakies. The upside of the food is that it is really tasty and tends to be generous in accompanying salads and rices. They even have set menus for a complete set of entrée, main course and desert which is adequately priced

4- Service
Well it is a relatively good service. Don't expect any butler service or a 5 star hotel one, but you will definitely get an adequate level of attention

I personally recommend Orama if you happen to be in the vicinity and you would like to eat something that is not the regular junk food. It is not a place that you will actually put on your to do list if you are on visit to Montreal. It is a place where you will find some business people from the surrounding businesses having a meal on their lunch break or some students of the nearby university complex grabbing a quick bite between classes

“Orama Greek Grill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 22, 2013

This is a friendly Greek resto in Park Extension just off Lacadie. For our party of 8 the waitress made some excellent suggestions regarding the appetizers. We had mushrooms ,tatziki, zucchini chips, small greek salads and several other delicious dishes. These were followed by a huge plate of house grilled chicken . The bill per couple came to $60 tips and taxes included ;so a great meal in a friendly and cosy environment made for a perfect evening.
Highly recommended.

“Great Greek food, great prices”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 20, 2013

Their Greek Salad is the best I've ever had. They have the best tomatoes, year-round, that I've ever eaten.
Their grilled chicken is terrific.
Good service.
Make a reservation.

“Top quality food and service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2013

Decided to try Orama for the first time and we will definitely be a regular customer with the excellent food and service that was provided. We had the grilled octopus, fried eggplant and zucchini as starters and lamb chops by the pound as our main course with potatoes and Greek salad. They focus on providing top quality ingredients without being too pretentious. Thank you Vicky for providing excellent value as well as a Greek culinary experience!
