Description: Angelo and Doxa Makrydakis immigrated to Canada from the island of Krete. In 1996, they decided that Kitchener needed a Greek dining experience where customers would feel welcome and a part of the family in a casual, warm atmosphere. Soon after, the Three Kretans was born. Named after their 3 sons - Gus, Zack and Niko - they succeeded in bringing the tastes of Greece to KW. With fresh ingredients and traditional Greek dishes and desserts prepared daily, Three Kretans has established itself as being Kitchener-Waterloo's premiere authentic Greek restaurant for over 18 years. OPA!

“Excellent”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

Finally, a decent Greek restaurant in KW! Ordered lamb chops -probably the best I have ever had and my wife had chicken souvlaki. The food was delicious and fresh. Our server was great, made reccos and was quick although it was busy. We had baklava for dessert -again, probably the best ever. We were in the mood for Greek and we were so glad to have found the place

“Consistently great experience...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2012

My wife and two kids have been going to Three Kretans for over 7 years and there's a reason we always go back at least once every couple months. The food is always very very good and filling. The menu hasn't changed much over the years, but we know what we like and we don't get bored of it since we don't have Greek food regularly. The combo plate 'Pikilia' is my favourite and my wife and kids is the chicken souvlaki. Our kids our under 10 and although they constantly ask to go to fast food chains, they've never complained about what they eat at this restaurant. Price wise, it's middle of the road cost, but again, for specialty cuisine, atmosphere and homemade cooking, it worth it. Would always recommend this Greek restaurant over any other. A +!!!

“Good family dining but not fine dining”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 6, 2012

I visited this restaurant for dinner on a recent visit to Kitchener and had a satisfying meal with generous servings, and fast service. The decor is rather drab and being located in a basement is dark and a little damp. The food is good but does not seem to be prepared fresh, and presentation is unimaginative. Good value for a hungry family but not fine dining.
