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.

    Often a go-to restaurant for me. Not sure if prices were increased recently, but my guests noted that the portions for the cost were a bit disappointing.

    The servers were rude, and water was dripping from the ceiling. I left a note that it was my friend’s birthday, but the birthday cake wasn't even served or acknowledged. I have celebrated my birthday there before, so I know they usually bring a cake with a candle when you leave a note. The servers didn't even confirm with me. We had to wait 40 minutes for our food, while people who arrived after us got their food earlier.

    Everything was really good, It is a bit more on the pricy side but its perfect for a special occasion, it gives off nice summer vibes.

    Food was great and our server Alana T was very professional. It was quite loud in the main dining area so hard to hear. Will be back soon

    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.
