This is a wonderful Greek Restaurant. We totally enjoyed the meal. We had the best escargot I have eaten in a very long time sorry that I had to share! We both ordered the Grilled Lamb Chops (versus the Rack of Lamb). 3 T Bone lamb chops that were cooked medium rare as requested. These were delightful. Dimitri was our... More

Atmosphere was pleasant, food was enjoyable, service was beyond disappointing. We felt extremely rushed which made our dinner very unenjoyable. Especially coming in from out of town to dine here. We will not be returning because of this.

We visited this restaurant recently with some friends having been to their other location in Port Credit several times and having overall positive experiences. I can't say I would recommend or visit this location again. The food was below average and tasted like it was reheated frozen food, barely heated past room temperature. The staff seemed friendly enough but perhaps... More

Went here for a business dinner, just two of us. Nice and clean with a comfortable atmosphere. Service was great and the food was delicious. The lamb souvlaki was very tasty and finished with Baklava for dessert and a nice red wine to go with the meal. A really good feel to this restaurant and I would definitely return. Prices... More

Been there several times and enjoyed the lamb with potatoes and salad. Enjoyed it every time and it's quite busy and been around for years which is the test of time.

Cozy Greek restaurant with delicious recipes. Summer patio on Lakeshore Boulevard is great for eating outdoors. Nice ambience inside although space is kind of cramped. Excellent meat and poultry plus some fish dishes. Limited choice for vegetarians.

What can I say?? They never seem to disappoint. From the changes of my reservation (it started off at 18 and grew to 26 eeek) to the last person leaving, they were an absolute delight. I can't remember our server's name (too much reisling) but he looked after everyone like a real pro. You can tell when someone has the... More

We order this all over at high end to medium scale. Restaurants. The calamari had no flour on it and very very rubbery. We ordered the platter for two. I left 3/4 of... More

Our family loves Greek food, so we have eaten at Colossus 2 or 3 times. It's not the best Greek food that we've ever eaten, but it reminds me of my trips to the Mediterranean. I always insist that we order a diverse variety of appetizers and entrees, so that we can all sample and share more than one item.... More
