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.

    Food was delicious but it’s overpriced. Service was okay. For the prices would’ve preferred a bit more charisma and attentiveness from the staff.

    Took my mom for Mother’s Day and had a great time. We all did the fixed menu and there was so much food we couldn’t finish it all! Everything was delicious and the service very attentive. Would definitely recommend.
