Meal started with nice buns served with balsamic vinegar and oil for dipping. Lamb was cooked just right. The chicken for the Souvlaki was well cooked; meal came with roast potato, rice, tzatziki, pita bread, and a Greek or Ceasar Salad. We ordered the Ceasar Salad requesting extra garlic mistakenly thinking it would be real garlic; powdered garlic doesn't cut it. The Tzatziki wasn't very good either. *Note to restaurant: spend the extra $$, buy real garlic, and toss the powdered garlic and find a better Tzatziki recipe. Ravioli was good. The drinks were good, but Bellini's were disappointing; however, my standards are pretty high after drinking Bellini's at Milestones restaurant (http://www.milestonesrestaurants.com/). Good place to take the family.

We arrived at a slow time and were the only ones in the restaurant. The male serving us was very friendly and personable. We had the brushetta as an appetizer and we appreciated the waiter informing is that it was only three peices but they could add an extra peice (there was four of us). As appetizers go the brushetta was a good size for a decent price. Our meals were served in a timely manner and were hot, fresh and delicious. We had no room for dessert. This was an amazing find and we will definitely be back next summer when we come this way.

Decent portions size.

They have Seafood Thursdays, great deal. Under ten dollars for any meal with seafood.

There are other Greek restaurants which are better however can't beat the prices.

My husband and I are extremely impressed with the delectable dishes, very affordable and big servings that Alexandra's provide for their customers!

We are now regulars, and will keep coming back because we truly enjoy the delicious, Mediterranean comfort food :)

Try their famous Osso Bocco (gigantic, scrumptious lamb shanks) for just 10.50--the BEST deal and dish in the city!

Very highly recommended, and we know you will, too!

The pastas here are amazing! good atmosphere and great service. I used to come here as a child and it is still one of my favourite places to eat. Definitely worth the visit!
