Fresh, healthy flavours and emphasis on beautiful presentation please both the appetite and eyes at Volos. Modern twists on traditional Greek dishes and Greek twists on local Canadian ingredients create a contemporary culinary experience rooted in authenticity. The restaurant sources the highest quality local produce, superior quality cuts of meat and the best fish, delivered daily. Like the menu, the interior plays with different Greek elements and motifs. Natural wood and stone combined with artful and ambient lighting lend a seductive and comfortable atmosphere.



We invite you to enjoy the Volos experience.

Food: Although the menu was somewhat poor in terms of variety the dishes were absolutely amazing and authentic.

Service: Fast, pleasant, makes you feel like home.

Ambience: Although it's supposed to be a Greek restaurant it doesn't resemble one.

Wine: Great selection of authentic Greek wines.

Olive Oil: Available in bulk, not branded containers. Although indeed local to the city of Volos it was defective.

Absolutely recommend. There are slight details that can be improved.

The appetizers were outstanding!! Had the sausage appetizer and really wished it was the main course. The main course wasn't as good as the appetizer.

I've been here once before and recall the food was great. Last night I ordered salmon and my boyfriend veal.
The server was very slow but the good came out fast.
The bread they served was really gross. Just plain white likely previously frozen. In places of similar price point youd expect something a bit better.
My salmon was so fishy tasting that I could not eat it. I am a huge seafood fan and cant remember last time I tasted such a fishy strong taste.
My boyfriends veal was nice but very small. He actually does not eat much and left hungry, which is a first as I've never seen him finish his food anywhere else because he eats so little.
We both got food an hour later!
The ambulance of this place is nice for a date because you can actually talk. Crowd is nice, well dressed, professionals 30+.
Service slow, and unattentive. Had to flag them down to get our bill 25mins after our meal was done.
Personally, I think Toronto has some amazing options, and this place will not be one I return to.

Overall it was a good experience though not special. I also went in with low expectations for quality of service based on other reviews.

The food was good and the octopus was soft and meaty. It would have benefited from being grilled on charcoal to take it to the next level. The same can be said of all the other items we tried. They are adequately made but not memorable.

The service is underwhelming. From entering the restaurant to seating to ordering and checkins and finally the bill. If you want to feel genuinely welcome then Estiatorio Volos is not the place. It’s akin to ordering from a bartender in a mega club in New York where they know they’ll never see you again.

Time for examples:
Entering the restaurant: we have to walk in, look around and tell someone we have a reservation. There was no smile thrown our way.
Seating: Got the worst table nearest the kitchen and it was very warm. Was told other tables “were the same” but insisted on moving.
Ordering: Took 3 tried to get a virgin drink. Somehow that point was lost.
Check-in: Non-existent.
Desert: She didn’t even ask!! she just started taking the plates and dropped the bill. I asked a cook walking by for the desert menu.
Pay: I gave up on dessert and wanted to leave. Took 15 minutes to get her attention so we can pay.

It sounds worse than it was but this is Toronto and there are many better places with unique dishes and decent service.

The food was very good, red snapper was excellent and the grilled calamari was superb. The service could have been a little better. I felt that I wasn't served with attention. Overall, happy of my choice.

It was a good experience overall. The calamari was great. The shrimp and octopus apps were ok. They’re great with birthdays if you book with OpenTable they already know to bring dessert with a candle without you asking.

Good meal. We sat at one of the less desirable tables for some near the kitchen, but I loved it. Enjoy watching the hustle.
Waitress was attentive but not over-bearing.
Had a lovely 2008 Amerindian which complimented my husband’s veal and my fish well. Meatball and grilled calamari appetizers were a nice size and we shared.
We would go back.

This was an amazing restaurant with superb ambiance and service. I took a friend there to celebrate her birthday. They have good sea food options, a good wine menu as well as dessert. Portions and price-value ratio are what you'd expect from a proper restaurant, won't make you super full but there's enough food, especially if you grab appetizers and dessert. Definitely highly recommended for any dating situations and great conversation. This restaurant will impress.

The service was extremely slow and inadequate. Water was spilled every time they refill, they passed food over the glass fence on the kitchen side instead of coming to our table. But this is during summerlicious, so maybe not a representation of regular service and food quality

Three of us visited Estiatorio VOLOS for Summerlicious 2018 and it exceeded our expectations. We've eaten in several 1- and 2-star Michelin restaurants around the world and, although Estiatorio VOLOS is not at that level, we enjoyed it equally. Portions were great, food was nearly perfect, service was spot-on. A perfect place for dinner if you're going to the Four Seasons Centre For The Performing Arts.

Waited to be acknowledged by a server for 15 mins. after having been seated. Server very aloof and seldom checked up on us. Have had better tasting Greek food at other less expensive restaurants. Overall value for money just okay... would recommend catering to all customers as the server beside us was way more welcoming and acknowledging of his customers, he even cashed us out before our server even registered that we were waiting for him.

Excellent service and very good food. Disappointing front of house. Requested a table by the window in reservation but hostess first tried to seat us in a dark table by the bathroom. Most of the best window seats were unoccupied. When I complained, hostess said they were unavailable/reserved. Persisted and got a window table in back. When we left 1.5hrs later, whole row of best, all central window seats had remained unoccupied. Should not have had trouble getting requested table for our Pre-theatre/5:45 reservation celebrating birthday. Shadowed otherwise good experience

An excellent restaurant opposite the Four Seasons Opera House. The menu is high end Greek. The menu is small - a reflection that Volos cooks everything fresh. The Lamb Sausage and the warm seafood salad were excellent. Great Octopus and grilled Calamari
