We dined at Koutouki on our recent visit to Niagara Falls. We love Greek food, and the food here did not disappoint. Both the Moussaka and Lamb Kleftiko were delicious and well prepared. The service was good....until we attempted to pay the check with US dollars. We were informed by the server: we would be charged an extra 5%, unless we paid with a credit card; that it was illegal for her to give us change in US dollars since only banks could change money. Additionally, we were treated to a "sermon" about how they didn't have to accept US $$ at all, since it was foreign currency and Canadian $$ were not accepted when she shopped over the border in the US. We were contemplating a return visit to the restaurant but were turned off by what seemed like an anti American attitude and did not return. Later we inquired, in places where we shopped, if giving change in US currency was illegal. No one we spoke to had ever heard of such a thing. The restaurant was going to incur a fee for our use of a credit card, so the whole thing didn't make sense. In any case, my rating of very good is strictly for the quality of the food.
