The Best Greek Restaurants in Toronto

The best Greek restaurants in Toronto are no longer concentrated to the Danforth (though Greektown certainly represents), and while souvlaki and gyros are still house faves, these are the places to discover other delicacies, too. Flaky phyllo pies, flaming cheese and innumerable combinations of mezedes are all on offer - not to mention fresh seafood that aims to transport diners to the Aegean coast, if only for an evening.

Here are the best Greek restaurants in Toronto.
