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!

My wife became ill later that night. Grilled calamari was undercooked. My pork souvlaki was small, fatty, overcooked and too salty. Mainly rice. Salad was not as good as the last time we went there. Unfortunately we will not return.

The music was far too loud for dinner which resulted in all of the patrons speaking at the top of their lungs which added to the noise. The tables were very close together so that the servers kept bumping into my daughter's chair as the passed by with hot or even flaming plates. Our server was incredibly rude throughout and at the end of the meal, when I asked for a takeout container, returned with it secured in his armpit!!! Completely disgusting and unhygienic. When I pointed out that I didn't want a container from under his arm, he was again rude and said that I was being too picky. Everything took long. The saganaki that we ordered was delivered to the wrong table and then given to us completely congealed from the other table and without any pita for dipping and the server refused to bring us a fresh one. It was a full hour between being seated and our main course arriving. The bill took so long that I had to go to the bar to pay the bill. Will not recommend nor will I return. If the server was that complacent about hygiene in front of our faces, I shudder to think about what goes on in the kitchen where no one is watching.

I went my friend for brunch. And the brunch menu hasn’t started yet which they didn’t let me know. Lunch was ok, and they did have amma g coffee options as well because the machine wasn’t working. Overall an average experience. Might go check out the brunch menu when things open up.

Ordered the seafood platter for 2. Disappointed! Lobster was mostly completely empty. 1 small piec of salmon. 4 shrimp and 1 calamari and I piece of octopus. Don’t get me wrong lots of French fries underneath. The Saganki was the best part of the meal.

I was just a little annoyed that although most of the restaurant was empty, a large party was put directly behind us. They were extremely loud and kept bumping the back of their chairs into my 74-year-old Mother's and I's chairs making for a most uncomfortable dinner as a result. The food was amazing and otherwise, the service was immpeccable.

The service here is great. Very attentive and friendly. What is not so great is the food - average and does not seem to be made from scratch - so not a place for foodies. Also the music can be too loud, so it is difficult to have a comfortable conversation.
