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!

It was wonderful to return as my husband and shared a few plates and watched the Danforth and the rain :) from our table on Friday night. With Covid on all our minds a safe dining experience was a concern. The staff cleaned tables and wore a mask for their customers and even tho we weren’t quite sure where to stand when we arrived our reservation with “OpenTable” had the restaurant prepared for arrival (2-thumbs up!)

The service was good overall, and the atmosphere was quite nice. We ordered from the dinner menu. The food was okay, but not up to par in my opinion. The amount of meat in the souvlaki leaves something to be desired, and it was quite dry. The tenderloin is tough and not tender at all. The "jumbo" New York cheesecake is tiny and far from jumbo as the name would suggest. Maybe a jumbo waste of $9. Not a terrible experience overall, but there are better alternatives for sure.

Our server was awesome. Food was pretty good (a very minor 'so-so' comment on the eggplant dip and the taramasalata; the mains were good). My brother-in-law loved the lamb. Not our first time, and for sure we will be back.

Service far too rushed - barely finished chewing a bite when next course was on table. Waiter told us the specials but not their price. Food portions were way too large - we all left nearly half our meal resulting in far too much waste.
