Mamakas Taverna

CAN$51 and over
Greek
Mamakas Taverna is an elegant 85-seat Greek taverna on Ossington Ave. Owner Thanos Tripi brings a fresh, authentic approach to Aegean food, offering classical Greek dishes against a contemporary canvas. Each plate is thoughtfully crafted to evoke the way Thanos’ grandmother cooked, inviting guests to explore the Greece he grew up with through food, art and music.

Meant to mimic an open market, the room is built of white concrete blocks creating an effect similar to the stucco seen throughout Greece. Mamakas is a nod to heritage, history and family memories – the daily trip to the market for ripe and fragrant tomatoes. Visiting a trusted butcher for fresh paithakia, and the local fish monger for the daily catch.

Recipes passed down through generations. Honest Greek fare with a modern twist. Designed to share. Everything just as Thanos’ family has done through the ages.

Why we love it

Executive chef: Rafael Rocha

Crowds flock to this rustic-chic Ossington taverna for classic Aegean dishes crafted from local ingredients. Shareables like crispy spanakopita and a solid Greek wine list make Mamakas especially popular with groups. Market-inspired decor and a buzzy open kitchen dial up the transportive atmosphere.

    It was my first time dining at Mamakas (recommended by a friend). The service, food and ambiance were great. We ordered a bunch of appetizers that were so flavourful and filling. It did get busy, so I highly recommend making a reservation in advance. I will definitely return.

    The menu is fantastic. Service is lovely. Vibes are chill and bright. My wife and I came here on our anniversary because we knew it would be a slam dunk of a night. One of our favourite spots in town, for sure.

    From the moment we arrived we had a fantastic time. The Service - from cocktails, wine,apps, mains, and birthday dessert we were looked after and thoroughly enjoyed every moment. Delicious all around. Mamakas is one of the best restaurants in Toronto. Go enjoy - u will be impressed. Thank you Mamakas!!!!…. for the 2nd time with a group of 7-10.

    Really, they were firing on all cylinders! My partner and I got the tasting menu, and: - Flavors were top notch - Perfect amounts - Paired well with a white and a red wine - With great, fast, attentive service - In a bright atmosphere with music at just the right level to let you have a conversation, but still generate some lively ambiance.

    A bit disappointed as I came with high hopes … tzatziki tastes like whipped cream cheese (not enough garlic, too much dill) Tomatoes and Feta dish was superb !!! Fresh and delicious Spanakopita wasn’t bad - but too much spinach (not enough cheese).

    Was an amazing experience. The service was great and was very accommodating for Gluten Free Allergy. It was also the perfect birthday meal experience. The selected tasting menu was superb with the wine pairing. Would eat there again and again.
