We had the while sea bass and Greek salad. That was perfect for two people because the fish also came with vegetables grown by the restaurant. We sat outside as the air conditioning was a bit cold for us. Great, patient, and friendly staff.

Our best meal in Montreal. We eat a lot of seafood but this was truly memorable. Each dish was well flavored and excellent—we couldn’t stop eating even when we were full! Wait staff was attentive and helpful. Noise level moderate so we could easily converse during our meal. Not in expensive but exceptional overall so worth the money. Would highly recommend!

The place is beautiful but super loud, we had to scream each other all dinner because it was imposible to hear.
They quality of the food was good (The Josper makes a huge difference) but the portions are ridiculously small for the price.
We had the seafood platter and some vegetables and we got 1 scallop and 1 shrimp per person, like really??
Thanks God we were not very hungry...
Definitely way to expressive.

Although not an over-extensive menu, there is no real need.
Would be a good location for groups as conducive to "family-style" eating.

Always a pleasure ! And I just love the food. If you go there, make sure you have time in front of you. Not because the service is slow, but because I strongly recommend that you order few plates at a time. The waiters often recommend to much plates/portions compare to what you really need.

This is my third time coming here and it was the best. The highlight was the customer service and flexibility. I inquired about an appetizer that wasn't on the menu anymore and the waiter managed to have the kitchen make one. And in general the service was very friendly yet professional. Food was really good. Note that it's worth to pay the extras for some of the Mezze (scalops and Lobster). Good wine selection, obviously some greec wine that should be the focus of your selection. We opted for one of the Assertykos and it wasn't available. However the waiter provided us with a delicious alternative (assertyko as well), that happens to be available at the SAQ.
Not cheap. But overall the type of nice evening that's worth the time and money.

The food was good, but not to die for. The service was too fast for 4 course servings...
( maybe their way of making you spend more). A little bit disappointed as I have been to different fancy restaurants at the oldport, and this one DIDNT GIVE ME THE “ iam definitely coming back here” MOMENT.

Our party of 4 had an excellent experiance. Our couple had been to Ikanos on a previouse ocasion and had ordered the mezzes, tapas style dishes. On this visit we all had the set menu. We were not disappointed I would say there was too much food, perfectly prepared exceptionally delivered. Thanks to all the team at Ikanos for memerable Saturday night.

Très belle expérience, on s'occupe vraiment de chacun des clients, le menu est très varié et intéressant. Les cocktails sont delicieux et beaux visuellement. Les plats sont très relevés et recherchés, c'est un menu à partager ce qui en fait un restaurant parfait pour un rendez-vous gallant ou une occasion spéciale avec des personnes chères. Les huîtres sont délicieuses et servie avec un condiment que je n'avais jamais vu avant: de l'échalote française dans un vinaigre de vin blanc (et c'est excellent). Les serveurs sont très accommodants, gentils et souriants. Par exemple, j'ai attendu mon rendez-vous là-bas et on m'a servi du pain et on m'a demandé si je voulais quelque chose à boire et les fameuses huîtres. J'y retournerais volontiers dès demain!

Three of us had dinner here, opting for the three course fixed price offering with wine pairings. Highlights included the house-made babaganouch and lamb tartare appetizers, the succulent guinea fowl atop a bed of veal-stuffed dolmathes, a perfectly grilled sea-bream with cannoli-filled ravioli, and decadent desserts. The wine pairings were excellent and good value fir the money.
