“Excellent Food and Service”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

We had a meal of various appetizers, starting with flaming saganiki. Everything was flavourful and well prepared. The waitress was able to walk that fine line of excellent professionalism and being friendly and helpful. We will definitely return on our next visit to the area.

“Spiro's Lamb Rocks!”
Reviewed September 23, 2013

We recently visited Spiro's Cubby Hole and his Greek food is absolutely amazing. We ordered a platter that offered all our favorites. The service was very good and the food came out in a timely manner. The restaurant itself is very casual. And Spiro, the owner came over and introduced himself. Over-all this is can't miss opportunity for excellent Greek food!!

“Good food. But rude chef and only one waitress to serve 13 tables makes it unpleasant.”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

We tried Spiro's based on reviews. The restaurant is in an ugly white commercial building off Main st.
The interior is surprising pleasant if not average. It is very small only 13 tables.
We were seated beside the kitchen.
We were presented with a rather worn and dated menu card. The choices seemed very good however.
The jaded waitress had no problem keeping us waiting for even the smallest requests. She was obviously going through the motions and stopped caring about her customers years ago.
My wife decided to add a soup to our order after seeing how good it looked at another table.
After 10 minutes of trying to get the one-and-only waitress attention, chaos broke out in the kitchen as the rude cook bitterly complained about the addition!
After bringing the wrong soup my wife was overwhelmed by the kitchen argument and escaped to the washroom in tears.
After I complained we heard everything, we decided to stay and not let their rudeness upset us further.
The food was good but we lost our appetites along the way.
Maybe with new staff and a chief-owner who appreciates their customers as people we would recommend this Spiro's. But not now. They have obvious problems.

“Great Food and Service”
Reviewed August 11, 2013

The food here was amazing from the fresh homemade bread to the main pasta dishes. Went her for a late supper with my boyfriend and was pleasantly surprised.From the outside the place is unsuspecting but that all changes once you get inside. Don't let the exterior deter you. This place is more likely to be filled with locals than tourists. Give this place a shot and you won't be disappointed.
