“good value”
Reviewed March 8, 2014

Their set menu is excellent value, and there is a good choice of main courses. The vegetarian food was not quite as good.

“Best on the Danforth”
Reviewed September 5, 2013

On a recommendation of a Greek friend we stopped in for lunch during the festival. This is by far the best Greek food I have had. Generous, flavorful portions. Excellent service. Absolute repeat.

“Delicious, generous portions, reasonable price”
Reviewed March 17, 2013

My friend and I went to this restaurant after an exhausting four hour shopping tour of Honest Ed's. We had been to the Kalyvia before and had enjoyed it. It's clean and unpretentious with simple decor and delicious home style cooking. There's a welcome consistency to their fare. We washed our hands in the immaculate bathroom, then relaxed with a glass of red wine. The waiter pointed out a prix fixe menu...excellent deal, but too much food for us. We had the special of the day - soup, salad and gyros $8.95. It was a large portion and everything tasted fabulous. The service was excellent. On the way out, we noted that the restaurant had been written up in magazines. I can see why.

“Fabulous Deal”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

I don't know if this is a permanent feature, but the Kalyvia on Danforth has a fixed price deal right now that can't be beat!! For $15, you will get soup or excellent Greek salad, an entree (souvlaki, moussaka, calamari, etc.) complete with rice and potatoes, a wonderful custard dessert or baklava and tea or coffee!!! Wow!!! We've been back six times, expecting this deal to end, but seems it's still on. Amazing.
