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!

Tables too close together and too small. Felt cramped in while sitting and eating dinner. Otherwise good and service was excellent. Waiter was attentive and prompt gave a suggestion for the wine that did not disappoint. Food was some of the best Greek food I’ve had on the Danforth.

Horrible service. Inattentive waiter that failed even the bare minimum customer service standards. Will certainly not return and will advise anyone to think twice about going there. This is not representative of the many great Greek restaurants in Toronto. PS: Asked for pork souvlaki WELL DONE… received undercooked pork.

Very average. The restaurant interior is tired. The washrooms, stairway etc all need paint and TLC. The tables are shoved so closely together that you can barely sit down. They are also very small tables and they serve everything on giant plates which are too large for the table so the overall effect is squished and crowded and uncomfortable. Laminated menus which are dog eared and not particularly clean which means many hands have touched them. Nice to have live music however.

Splendid atmosphere even mid week and terrific, hearty food. My wife and I used to go to Christina's 30 years ago when we were dating and on a visit back to Toronto went back with our kids, now in their mid twenties. We were not disappointed; excellent service, and towards the end of the evening we enjoyed the Greek band practising their set for the weekend. We'll be back next visit.

We arrived on time for our reservation but still had to wait fifteen minutes to be seated. After receiving our appetizers and drinks the server just stopped serving us. For thirty minutes we had empty plates and our finished drinks and he didn't come to our table. We kept trying to get his attention so we could order our dinner but he would make eye contact with us and then ignore us. We had to ask another server to place our dinner order. When he did eventually come back to our table (after we asked him to) and clear our plates, he dropped cutlery on us. The tzatziki and saganaki was good, but the chicken souvlaki was average at best and the fried zucchini was very greasy

Our waiter was very friendly however his service was poor. He was hard to find , didn’t remove our dirty plates and had to be flagged down to provide the bill. He seemed to forget about us. The food was mediocre at best. The size of the Moussaka was huge but it was dry and flavourless. The chicken cordon blue was average. Same with the souvlaki. The bill was a shock at $300 for 6 people 2 of whole didn’t drink. All in all a disappointment.

Could not believe they charged $26 for a small tentacle of octopus whereas Joso gave me 2 large tentacles (and delicious too) in Yorkville for $28. Moreover the lamb souvlaki was tasteless. I have been going here for 40 years but not in country for past ten years. Therefore surprised of changes not to my looking in recent years

The street-front patio has an assortment of hanging baskets and potted plants to give it a tranquil feel amidst the bustle of the city. The cuisine is predominantly Greek and brunch is offered on weekends.
