The food was good. I had the pita with gyro. I have to say, it's expensive, but I brought home leftovers! The staff was very kind and helpful. I loved the decor because it's cozy and very greek town styled! It was a pleasure eating there.

Agree with DECMTL, this place has gone downhill. Unclean, poor service and mediocre food at best. Friends of mine have eaten here and come down with food poisoning! This is the original location. It is now a local chain and I've tried some of the other places and there's not much to recommend here, anymore. Montreal has MUCH better souvlaki... More

A good family-type medium priced Greek restaurant with exactly the same menu as every Greek restaurant in the world except Greece. Prices are moderate , food is tasty and portions are huge. Almost very one leaves with a doggy bag.

The chicken pita plate, the the pita was cold & super salty like it was old & had been... More

On a cold december day, my friends and I went there to get warm as fast as possible and eat lunch. The sandwich I had was overfilled with sauce and quite disappointing.

Worst restaurant experience ever. Acadie location. We went today and all three of us have very upset stomach. Dishes and glasses were dirty. Tables are oily and smell terrible. They put some sort of smelly chemical when they clean the floor. Anyways avoid this place.

Had the lamb souvlaki pita with an Greek Horatiki slad on the side. The souvlaki was delectable, with a wonderful tzatziki in a perfect pita. Restaurant has a comfy, sort of hokey Greek resto vibe. Service was friendly and attentive. Plus it is right across the street from a delightful bagel shop.

Staying in Le Plateau Mont-Royal

Neighborhood Profile
Le Plateau Mont-Royal
Go native in Plateau Mont-Royal, where bespoke shopping, hip eateries, and wacky paint jobs attract locals and transplants alike, making it one of the city's most diverse and distinctly authentic experiences. A creative hub, Montreal's artistic elite pack the cafes along Rue Saint-Denis, where young painters and fashion designers draw inspiration from the playful murals and stately Victorian homes that dot the Plateau's side streets. Not a major sightseeing destination, a visit to Plateau Mont-Royal allows you to enjoy a local perspective, soaking in indie films, latte art, contemporary galleries, and the city's best bagels. A center of polyglot culture, Québécois accents mingle with shades of Portuguese, Greek, and Hebrew in the area's iconic Mile End district, where restaurants straddle chic designer boutiques, serving up chorizo and caldo verde. Friendliest to those on foot, it's a jungle of colorful awnings and sidewalk umbrellas, pedestrian walks and luxury shopping.
