    Easily the best calamari in Ottawa. I work internationally, and travel extensively. I have had calamari all over the world, including in Australian fine dining restaurants right on the water - And Mystiko's chefs produce a better dish. The specials are great (only available) from Wednesday on; Probably due to demand, but a shame). If I have a choice of where I go in Ottawa, it is always Mystiko. A better quality and value for money you simply won't find.

    I made a reservat...

    I made a reservation for my grandmother's birthday. When we arrived, we were seated almost immediately. We were brought water, then asked what we wanted to drink. Most of the ones on the one menu were not in stock, so we had to rely on our server's wine knowledge, to get us each the right wine for our pallet. A few minutes after receiving our drinks, our waitress came over to answer any questions and ask what we would like to eat. We got the spanakopita as an appetizer (to share). The spanakopita itself was very good, but lacked a dipping sauce or some added flavor. For our entrées, my grandmother got the seared salmon. It was cooked to perfection, the side salad was delicious, the potatoes were well seasoned but they were not cooked all the way through. For my entrée, I got the steak [New York]. The steak was cooked to my liking but once I had dug my knife into the stake, I realize that the majority of it was fat. On the 12 ounce steak, you expect there to be some fat, but not minimal 6 ounces worth. For such a classy restaurant, because out-of-state was very lacking

    Meal was fine and affordable, service was great-fast, friendly and efficient! We only ordered Greek salad. I think they used iceberg lettuce and the tomatoes were not local but it's autumn so I give them a pass on that. The dressing was tasting and healthy portion of feta! I like this restaurant because you know what to expect.

    Mystico is our favourite family restaurant. We have been celebrating birthdays, anniversaries or graduations there for over 15 years, and never disappointed with the friendly service, great food and a comfortable atmosphere.

    The food was amazing! I brought family to show off the food I enjoyed in Greece last year and was impressed with the selection. Thanks! I'll be back! (A little dark for dinner, especially for old folks. Scooch the lighting up a bit?)

    The food, main plates, were exceptional. Two moussaka, roasted lamb and a delightful vegetarian dish. The reason for four stars only......an appetizer of fried calamari was not very good at all. Too much flour used plus the calamari was tough and VERY chewy. The atmosphere was quite lovely except for the type of music they were playing. Why not Greek music? Our server was delightful, others who came to the table to refill water, take plates, very friendly and always a pleasant interaction.

    We had an absolutely fantastic evening. This was our first visit and we took friends from out of town, there were 4 of us. It all started by the convenience of their own parking lot, no hunting for on street parking. The food was outstanding and the atmosphere was perfect. Imagine comfortable seating where you can actually have good conversation without trying to compete with a bunch of noise! Our waitress was lovely,with a sense of humour,was attentive to our needs and made several great recommendations for food and drink. I had the best glass of red wine ever! All of us agreed our meals were outstanding. We have now found our favourite Greek restaurant and can’t recommend it highly enough. Thank you for a perfect evening!

    No bread on table, very small portions. Rice and potatoes are so inexpensive, why not fill the plate? Food tasted very good but we all left still feeling hungry which is very unusual for dinner at a Greek restaurant. Won't be returning.

    My parents were visiting from Sault Ste. Marie and they always like to try different types of restaurants that they may not have access to at home. Let me start by saying the overall experience was phenomenal. Our server, Jasmine, was amazing and accommodating. We all felt very comfortable here and things worked out perfectly for us. We went to the light show at parliament after so it was ideal for a nice walk after dinner. The food was on point, the wine was delicious. Absolutely no complaints and we will be back! :) thanks Mystiko!

    The octopus appetizer was mediocre, but the calamari platter, chicken and lamb brochettes were tasty. In general, we found the menu pricier than we expected. The restaurant setting is pleasant and comfortable.
