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.
This sleek seafood-focused restaurant on Richmond attracts hordes of Bay St. types, thanks to its upmarket takes on faithfully traditional Greek fare. Here the menu offers an ensemble of sharable mezedes, market-fresh fish and rich bechamel-smothered moussaka, best coupled with a bottle from the superb list of Greek wines.
The thriving purveyor of Greek street food now boasts three locations where you’ll find handheld favourites like pitas stuffed with chicken or pork gyro, souvlaki or bifteki. Hungry appetites can go all out with "YiaYia's big dinner" - a platter packed with any meat, potatoes, salad and rice.
Seafoods and chargrilled meats dominate the menu at this Aegean oasis. While gyrating dancers are only billed on weekends, the food-minded can take delight in the live entertainment that is kefalotyri cheese flambeed tableside. Take advantage of the reasonable prix fixe menu for great value on worthwhile classics like braised lamb shank or the vegetarian moussaka.
