Montreal’s best Greek restaurants
Where are Montreal’s best Greek restaurants?
We admit to starting our quest with a limited amount of information. Who doesn’t love Greece and Greek food, especially during our cold winter months here in Montreal? So, faced with the question of identifying the best Greek restaurants, we called on our Greek friends here to make sure we give you the best list. A special thanks to Stefanie Stergiotis for her knowledgeable input and the support of her family members who also assisted us.
« Celebrating Independence Day at the Greek Parade on Jean Talon Blvd is when true Greek restaurants are on full display. Greek families come together and it happens here, » she tells us. Stefanie’s grandparents immigrated to Quebec with $10 in their pockets and a bottle of Ouzo! And like so many Greeks, they settled in Parc Extension. Stefanie explained that many of the first generation Greeks started in this neighborhood, whereas the second generation chose the neighborhood of Chomedey, Laval. Not surprisingly, our best Greek restaurants follow more or less the same route.
For excellent souvlakis, we recommend Elatos Souvlaki (who delivers!) or the multi-location Marathon’s Souvlaki.
For a delicious small Greek-style snack, specializing in phyllo pastry, try Phyllo Bar Melina’s.
