Ossington’s stylish taverna is the strip’s go-to for seafood and a glass of white from their all-Greek wine list. Head here for your after-work rendezvous for whole grilled Mediterranean sea bass and grilled lamb chops.

As its name implies, expect a bounty of tasty house dips and piping hot pita bread at this cozy Greektown spot. Come for the friendly family atmosphere and stay for their juicy souvlaki and saganaki show.

Greektown’s gyro king is known citywide for their superbly affordable gyros. These massive pitas are what latenight snack dreams are made of: stuffed with garlicky housemade tzatziki sauce and meat shaved straight from the spit.

Square Boy

You simply can’t beat the prices at this iconic joint on the Danforth. Square Boy’s gyros, souvlaki and BBQ chickens somehow taste even better while eaten in a retro diner booth. While admittedly not Greek, the banquet burgers are on legendary status.

The folks behind Mamakas also run this meze bar right across the street. Conversation-starter shareables include feta fried in phyllo and dakos toast. Come during happy hour for half-off wine and oysters from the raw bar.


Volos

Breezy white archways and outstanding service make this Financial District one of the fanciest options for Greek. Moussaka with organic ground beef and grilled chicken breast, organic, with tzatziki come straight from this upscale menu.

Myth

The newest arrival on this list is this swanky King West restaurant with impressive interior decor that’ll make you feel like you’re in some coastal lounge. A platter of dips, plates of crudo and grass-fed Australian lamb chops are on the menu alongside a list of Greek wines.


The Greek Grill

The Greek Grill

Pape Village’s longtime plaza joint has been serving casual sit-down dinner since 2007, when they first opened on the Danforth. Expect all the usual Greek favourites, from calamari straight off the grill and gyros to their famous layered mousaka.
