Excellent

Excellent Greek food and amazing ambiance. Go on a night with the live musicians and Belly Dancer entertainment. Really adds to the atmosphere. As does the patio on a nice warm summer evening. Food is terrific. Large portions and reasonable prices. Excellent kalamari. Highly recommended.

I was here for breakfast/Lunch on Sunday. We were not happy with the service and food at all. 1. It took more than 45min to have our meal. There was only 1 table with customer when we get there. 2. They server me the end toasted bread with my breakfast 3. Over cooked vege on my daughter lunch. 4. 3 tables who came after us get served before. So disappointed overall

Mouthwater Experience

I'm writing this after just finishing our delicious meal at Christina's seating on their lovely patio filled with healthy beautiful flowers. Love the environment, packed but very accommodating and well worth the little wait that might be necessary. Great service, waiters are super friendly and efficient. In my opinion, this is the best restaurant on the strip!

Great Greek Restaurant

Visited Christina's couple of days ago. I felt like I was at a restaurant on one of the Greek Islands. There was entertainment, a bouzouki player and a belly dance who were very good. For some people they might find it a little noisy, but that added to the atmosphere and it only lasted while the belly dancer performs. The food was great, especially the grilled octopus, kolokithokeftes (zucchini croquettes) and the kalamari for appetizers. Our entrees consisted of lamb chops, whole fresh grilled sea-bass and rack of lamb. Everything was delicious. We had two bottles of a nice Cabernet Greek wine. Portions are large and well presented so is the service.

Fun and Very Entetaining

The atmosphere and entertainment was so much fun! The belly dancer was energetic and fun. The service is professional and friendly. The food was great, try the rack of Lamb and the Kalamari crispy and very tender. We were in a large group and everyone talked about how delicious their meal was. This is now our favorite place in Greek town.

Live

great overall atmosphere and service. the crowd is on the older side and the place is seemingly more of a family place (greeks primarily). i tried the tested and true thing on the menu the souvlaki on the menu as i've had bad experiences in the past when i order something I don't know - yes their menu is entirely greek. the ambiance is great when your inside. the live music was a bit too loud for us. the service was great throughout and their were no complaints with the food. nothing special though which is why I wouldn't visit again - across the road and in the entire area you will find less expensive areas to eat in.

This restaurant is open late and is a favourite...

This restaurant is open late and is a favourite of other restaurant workers. There is a tendency to overorder and doggy bag, so the price really is for for three meals, not two! The entertainers are fun, the servers attentive, and it is a place where I can take the whole family. the grandkids love the flaming cheese! The seafood soup is almost a meal in itself, with lots of tasty ingredients and liquid that begs to be mopped up with the complimentary bread. The desserts always look wonderful, but we never have room for them! Watch out for the zombies, they can creep up on you... the patio is a great place to watch the Danforth and the propane heaters make it livable for much longer. Take the TTC - Danforth parking is a zoo. We can walk it from Queen Street, and we usually need to after our excess!

Expectation was Mother's Day brunch given that the restaurant advertises bruch on weekends and that it would make sense to serve brunch on Mother's Day. There was no brunch. We left.

We were seated at a table for 2 that was too small to accommodate the dishes and beverges we ordered. The table was crammed into a tight space and when serving staff arrived with food for the surrounding tables it felt that they were on top of us. Particularly dangerous especially when serving saganaki that was flamed. Our waiter came to take our order without giving us time to peruse the menu and when we told him we weren't ready he disappeared for 15 minutes. We had to flag down another server to order. In all fairness to the restaurant, it was the Saturday before Mother's Day and Christina's was just packed. We had an assortment of 3 tips with pita bread and a Horiatiki salad both of which I would rate as average. The fried calamari though was tender and delicious.

If your server is Tommy and as you are choosing what to order from the menu he tells you "let me chose for you" and "I will take care of you, trust me", DON'T DO IT. If you do you'll end up with so much leftover food that you can't finish, and you'll pay so much more than you needed to pay. We were 4 people and we got and paid for an 8 person meal. Other than that, the food - that we could eat - was delicious, the band was very good and the singer was incredibly nice and sang a lot of lovely music.

Our party was a few minutes late to arrive, and the restaurant was very accommodating. Our server was very attentive at the start, but throughout the meal we would see him less and less to the point where we had to ask/get the attention of multiple different servers for additional drinks, coffee and ultimately our bill. Aside from this, it was a good dining experience, and the food was delicious.
