Had the sauce trio (tzatziki, tyrokafteri and melizanosalata) and fried zucchini for appetizers, then the grilled seafood platter and the grilled Angus beef strip loin. Everything was so good! The octopus was excellent! I have had octopus at other places and when they are not prepared well, it is very tough. The strip loin was excellent also, medium rare with a nice gravy. For dessert, we had the inspiration, which consisted of loukoumades, olive oil cake and chocolate and almond cookie. The desserts were not overly sweet. Definately a place to return to!

Food is very good and authentic upscale Greek. The way they cook their seafood does give it an excellent charcoal crisp on the outside while not over cooking. Great selection of Greek wine and enjoyed the well-balanced ouzo cocktail! Love the grilled octopus!

a very attentive wait staff. The food was delicious and explained to us. And even redone to our liking when one dish on the 7 course meal was not to our liking. Definitely will be going back for all future Montreal trips.

Service was amazing. The manager explained the choices and suggested wines to pair with each meal. Went with the Josper chefs choice meal and every course was better than the last. Can’t forget the amazing donuts for dessert. Always a great time here, leaving perfectly satisfied!

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.
