Ikanos doesn’t quite know how to describe itself, and maybe that’s a good thing. “We’re very unique because nobody really does what we do. If you want to eat seafood in Montréal, most of the time you’ll end up eating sushi. We serve fish and seafood in a more Greek and Mediterranean way,” says owner and head chef, Constant Mentzas.

Ikanos has received very good reviews from notable publications in Montreal like The Gazette and its food critic, Lesley Chesterman’s top 10. “When these reviewers do their articles, a lot of the time they make lists and put restaurants in categories like best bistro, for example. We don’t really fit into any of these categories; we do something a little more diverse,” says Constant.

One of Ikanos’ specialties is grilled fish, which is served in the classic Greek tradition with olive oil, lemon juice, and capers. “We started a tasting not too long ago. We have two tasting menus. One is just pure fish and seafood; the other one is more of a surf and turf.”

Ikanos serves raw and grilled fish, and they have a variety of 16 or so plates that you can order as appetizers. “They are like the seafood equivalent of tapas,” says Constant. Fish is 50 per cent of the menu at Ikanos. “We have a charcoal oven so we do a pretty damn good steak as well.”

One point that was great at the restaurant great place to discuss business since it is not noisy. The menu was too complicated, and the dishes are wide and contains little food. Also, doesn't represent the great cooking of Greek meals. Even if the restaurant is trying to achieve a new look or new cuisine for traditional Greek, it is really not impressive and definitely food wise we were very disappointed. We had the appetizer with extremely small shrimps, a roll which supposedly was crab de

Portions style tapas, nourriture très bien, personnel sympathique. Nous avons mangé au bar et avons eu une excellente expérience. Le dessert aux beignets frits sur une panacotta aux agrumes était simplement délicieux!

Service was excellent. Food was amazing. Weather was perfect. Just another amazing experience at Ikanos. We go to Greece every summer and this year could not because of the travelling conditions and various restriction. Ikanos helped us feel like we were there in a way. Thanks to all the staff for making us feel at home.

Amazing seafood!!! Portions are small though but at the end you feel satisfied! Regular service and waiter wanted to offer their most expensive wines first, if you don’t ask for the price they just bring you a 150 bucks bottle. Rather than that was a really good experience and definitely come back again!
