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.
Took my boyfriend here as her has never been before. One of my favourite places on Ossington. Excellent food always and service. Will be back soon!
I have been twice now, once with my boyfriend and once with my family. Both times were amazing. The food is delicious and you feel like you’re in a little restaurant right in Greece. The wine is Greek as well so we got to try some that we wouldn’t be able to anywhere else necessarily. Definitely give it a try!
Exceeded our expectations! We sampled a number of delicious menu items, and all were outstanding. Quality of service matched the quality of food!
Brought my Mum here who previously never had Greek food. She loved it!! Really tasty food, great service, our server was fantastic!! overall fabulous experience
My anniversary of my birth.
The waiter was very friendly, the service was super fast and the food was excellent
The food quality was not up to my expectations. Octopus was cold and burned, the beef was cold and hard. The waiter was distracted although restaurant was not that busy.
I don’t think the flavour palate resembles the flavours of Greece.
The decoration is very good and music selection as well.
Tasty casual meal with a good pal at the Bar.
Client meeting out of town.
Amazing food!! Great service!
Quality food, fresh ingredients and great recipes makes this place special. Will certainly come back:)
Portions are becoming smaller and prices are increasing. Food quality and taste is still good.
Outstanding food & service as always
The lamb chops are a must!
The lamb was unreal, as well as the drinks. The ambiance and lighting were very comfortable, and the noise level was also very tolerable, as I was able to hear the person I was with clearly without struggling. Great service!
Waiter was extremely pushy on us to buy more food. I felt very cornered by him. Also he refused to give us one of the items in the menu that I had the half size just last month (2 lamb chops instead of 4). I won’t go there again. Very cheap mentality.
Excellent food & service.
The food wasn’t great. But dips and pita were to die for. Drinks were very well made.
Bonus: They were incredibly sweet, they provided 2 glasses of champagne for our anniversary complimentary.
Fantastic Service, host.
Our mains were very delicious and flavourful. The Melitzanosalata dip blew my friend and I away (I still dream of it). I was disappointed that the Saganaki was not served in flames. The apple and beer sorbet was no good. It tasted like apple puree baby food. I never leave food on the plate but I couldn't make it past 2 bites.
Server did not ask questions regarding choice of flavor palate
Great spot for authentic greek food! Its on the pricey side but you definitely get the quality-worth.
Great food, impeccable service-as always! Always love eating at mamakas.
The best Greek food in Toronto. Have the eggplant dip , lamb chops , Greek salad and saganaki Highly recommended meal with amazing service
Lovely food and experience! We have been a couple times this past month and will be back again soon. Thanks
Food and Ambiance is very good. Always busy when we have visted, that is a very good sign.
Best lamb chops I’ve ever had! The food, wine, ambiance, service and location are phenomenal!
Great service and phenomenal food, as always.
Great food that reminds me of Greece. Octopus grilled exactly right. Real retsina and ouzo. And excellent service. Not our first time and not our last time.
Disappointed. In a competitive restaurant landscape you need to up your game. Mamakas has slipped a bit. missing that extra something.
Amazing food, great service and ambiance! Best greek food in Toronto.
I was celebrating my 3 year anniversary with my partner, and it was such a great experience! Our server Lacy was phenomenal, they greeted us with complementary champagne which was lovey! The food was delicious, the atmosphere was fun and energetic, the drinks were unique and super tasty. Overall amazing experience, will definitely be back and bring more friends!
Outstanding food & service. Can’t wait to go back!
Sat at the bar - great meal and the bar tenders were great.
Everything we had was delicious
Very good food and decently sized portions in a very cozy setting. I would recommend pairing the more unique dishes like octopus with the basic dips and pita. The cocktails are definitely worth a try, they do an excellent job of incorporating greek liquor into crafty drinks. Only problem is that food comes in no particular order so it's not easy to combine dishes. Also we had a long pause just waiting for the latter half of our order to come out. I definitely felt we were overpaying for very simple ingredients, though the food is excellent.
We have been here more than once. The food is delicious - most dishes are meant for sharing. Great restaurant!
We don’t get back here often but when we do, we feel very lucky to dine in this special place.
Great Food, great vibe. Brought our kids and they were very accommodating.
Great menu, service was great and they were very attentive to my food sensitivities.
