“Go Fishing at Molivos”
Reviewed July 2, 2012

Molivos is a sleepy little Greek restaurant in the Ville-Marie district. This is actually my second visit, the first being 2 years ago. It has a small menu but I would not recommend going here unless you want fish for dinner. The fish of the day is listed on a chalk board but the tray will be brought out for you to make a selection. Prices are by the pound so be careful in ordering as a 2 lb fish will run you over $50 but will also serve two people. We had their Greek salad and it was excellent as were the dolmades. The fish is grilled and served simply with lemon and a few capers, accompanied by some delicious giant lima beans. Only poor part of the meal was the bread, which was served toasted. We like warm bread but their bread is dry and bland - dipping in olive oil does not help much. This is something they should and could easily fix. Definitely worth a stop for a Greek fish dinner if in the area and the prices are pretty reasonable relative to other restaurants in this expensive area of Montreal.

“Not so great...”
Reviewed June 27, 2012

The food wasn't anything special, the staff spent most of their time socializing in the back, and the table clothes and cutlery were dirty. The Prices were really high for the quality of food. Not worth it at all! I felt ripped off after I left....

“Nice greek restaurant!”
Reviewed May 16, 2012

I've been once to Molivos and I enjoyed it! The fish was fresh and perfectly prepared, the greek salad was very tasty and the loukoumades are better than the ones I had in Greece! They make them crunchier than the usual preparation. Love it!
The place is very small and casual, the decor gives you the feeling you a in a typical greek tavern.

“I can recommend this place”
Reviewed March 19, 2012

I have always enjoyed Molivos, and this latest time I was not disappointed.

Only the freshest, and the most ripe, and the best tasting tomatoes make it to their Greek salad.

Everyhing is good. Fish always fresh and perfectly prepared.
