Since 1980, Molivos has been delighting patrons with its old-world charm and fine Greek cuisine. Decked out in the style of a Greek taverna, the crisp linens, curtained windows and Aegean seascapes create a setting conducive to the ultimate enjoyment of fresh seafood and superb Greek specialties. Located in downtown Montreal, guests are offered lunch and dinner service, plus the convenience of delivery and takeout. To start, the Saganaki, Dolmades and Charcoal Broiled Octopus are well worthy of their enduring popularity. And after sharing some appetizers, recommended specialties include the Charcoal Broiled Rib Steak, Chicken Brochette, and Lamb Chops. However, Molivos is most beloved for its seafood, where options range from fresh Red Snapper, Black Sea Bass, Shrimp and Squid, to Striped Bass, Sword Fish, Salmon and Trout.

Four of us were at Molivos on a Monday night, it was very quiet. Our server, Irwin, was very friendly and solicitous. We had the fried zuchinni (very tasty, light and crispy) and the sweet Holland grilled peppers as appetizers. We were served plenty of grilled bread with olive oil. Three of us had the shrimp platter as our main course while our other guest had the chicken brochette. Both selections were deemed delicious! They were served with salad, rice and French fries as was the chicken brochette. My only suggestion would be to offer the client a choice of either the rice or potatoes instead of serving both. We were also served a complimentary dish of delicious Gigantes Plaki (large lima beans in an aromatic tomato sauce). We enjoyed a lovely bottle of white wine, Domaine Mercouri Foloi, with our dinner.

Charming and authentic Greek restaurant which was pretty quiet for a Saturday night but admittedly we booked for quite a late meal. The meal was cooked to a good standard but nothing exciting, not as good as Greek food can be. Service was reasonably attentive but did not seem to be at all Greek! The knowledge of greek food and drink seemed limited. The octopus starter was recommended but was either frozen or over cooked because it was ok but not special. The red snapper which we both had was good but not amazing. All in all a pleasant and charming place but lacking in passion and the real attention to detail to give it the wow factor. My girlfriend paid the bill so I am unsure as to the actual amount but she implied that it was a bit pricey. Definitely not up to some of the reviews we read but its difficult isn't it? Everyone has different expectations. We're certainly not demanding 'foodie' snobs, and we didnt mind at all the slightly run down feel of the place but we feel we know love and and imagination and excellence, and this was clearly somewhat lacking here. A bit neglected in every way was the overall feeling - like a family restaurant with the central family members missing.
