We had a reservation and were seated promptly. The server explained the menu, at the same time, pushing the most expensive 5 course option. She also told us about the “value priced” 3 course option (priced at $79/pp), totally missing the point that all menu items were available a la carte. When we chose to order a few a la carte items and 2 artisanal
gin tonics, her attitude became dismissive. Our bread arrived promptly, shortly followed by our food. Our drinks? Nowhere to be found. After waiting 45 minutes and asking twice about our drinks...entrees finished...we gave up on the drinks and resorted to asking the sommelier to get our check so we could leave. It was only then that our two gin tonics arrived - with the check. The food was good, the drinks were delicious. The service was pushy, arrogant and non-existent. If you’re you’re a patient person and like getting attitude, this is the restaurant for you.

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.
