My fiance and I ordered the greek platter for two. It is a lot of food so be prepared to be there for awhile if you order this! The greek salad and mousaka were excellent. We also really enjoyed the bread and oil served before our meal (They sell the oil for $18/bottle so we got one to go). The lemon potatoes and chicken slouvaki were not the best we've had but still tasted good.
We also received the best service we've had at a restaurant in a long time. The waittress was prompt and very friendly.
We would definitely recomment this restaurant!

I quite like this restaurant. The location is good (parking's not great though...), the atmosphere is nice, the staff are decent, and the food's pretty good. Their spanakopita is pretty great - best I've had in a Greek restaurant in a while.
Just don't order the coffee.

Second visit in two years. Beautiful classy decor, friendly accommodating staff, reasonably priced delicious food. What more could one ask for. It is simply great, try the excellent Avgolemono Soup.

Everyone goes to Il Mercato...we mistook this place for that and weren't disappointed. We LOVED the bread and dipping sauce - even bought both as we left. My spanakopita phyllo was a little tough. A nice dining experience

We sailed to Halifax on a cruise and had only a little time to tour around and had to pick a food stop before boarding the ship. We stumbled upon this place and the food was amazing! The service was attentive also! It turned out to be the dining highlight of our trip leaving the cruise ship to shame and I can't believe we just stumbled upon it! Highly recommended!
