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!

Exceptional wines selection from private imports. Great recommendation from our waiter thank you Sam. Food simply amazing The only thing I would change was music -a bit too aggressive for older crowd. Mediterranean rhythms would be more appropriate for the menu, decor and whole experience. Definitely to recommend

MDinner last night was 5 Star!!! From introductions, explanations and recommendations by the staff as well as the exceptional food!!! Wine selection and knowledge by our server also a Sommelier was outstanding. The courses each brought different flavors and the flavors from their oven I have not tasted before! From the redfish to the scallops with froi gras, to the grilled octopus and calamari and finish with the orange marshmallow baklava! Tastes and flavors you don't see elsewhere. Thank you for the wonderful evening! We will be back!
