1. Rotisserie Panama 789 rue Jean Talon O., Montreal, H3N 1S3 (Parc Ex)

Rotisserie Panama has been a mainstay restaurant in Parc-Ex (which used to be the main Greek neighborhood in Montreal) for many years, and the restaurant still maintains its reputation for being one of the best Greek food spots in the city. Two specialties of Rotisserie Panama are the slow-roasted lamb and the whole chicken, both of which are huge plates of succulent meat piled high for you to happily devour.

2. Philinos 4806 Avenue du Parc, Montreal, H2V 4E6 (Mile End)

“Philinos” for those who aren't well versed in Greek means “friends of wine,” so it only makes sense that this Greek restaurant would have a pretty extensive wine list, with many Greek varieties featured. While the red and white stuff abound at Philinos, one can't forget the food, with the grilled octopus and saganaki being customer favourites.

3. Estiatorio Yia Sou 5375 Queen Mary, Montreal, H3X 1V1

If you're in need of good Greek food in Côte-des-Neiges, look no further than Estiatorio Yia Sou, located right by Snowdon Metro. Plenty of seating is available (with a terrace open in the summer) so many can enjoy its deliciously large portions and famous lamb souvlaki and gyros.

4. Le Jardin de Panos 521 Duluth Est, Montreal, H2L 1A8 (Plateau)

A mainstay on the cobblestone street of Duluth, Le Jardin de Panos was the first Greek BYOW in all of Montreal, and remains one of the best. Serving all the classic (and delicious) Greek dishes, with some modern additions thrown in, Le Jardin de Panos does Greek cuisine right, but it's the ambiance and atmosphere of this Greek restaurant that can't be ignored.

5. Souvlaki Village Grec 654 rue Jean-Talon O, Montreal, H3N 1R7 (Parc Ex)

Kind of a hole in the wall, Village Grec looks a tad unassuming, but the rustic veneer is just the modest face of what may be the best place in Montreal to get a doner/gyro pita. Made with a mix of pork, lamb, and beef, Village Grec's pitas are what you need to order, but don't be afraid to try its giant main plates if you're feeling extra peckish.

6. Mythos Ouzeri 5318 Avenue du Parc, Montreal, H2V 4G7 (Outremont)

Not just a restaurant, Mythos Ouzeri is something of a supper club, with a large bar area, DJ booth, stage, and dance floor. With its large space (and ouzo by the bottle), Mythos is amazing for large groups looking to party a bit after having a great Greek dinner, which you can enjoy even on the later side of the night, as the restaurant stays open well into the evening.

7. Marven's Restaurant 880 Ave Ball, Montreal, H3N 1J7 (Parc Ex)

A meal at Marven's will get you huge portions of delicious Greek food at very affordable prices, which is hard to pass up. Renowned for its calamari (some say it's the best in the city), Marven's also makes a mean souvlaki, quail, and lamb chops, among many other dishes.

10. Tripoli Restaurant 679, rue Saint-Roch, Montreal, H3N 1L2 (Old Montreal)

Simple, rustic, and straightforward in delicious flavours, Tripoli is everything you'd want in a classic Greek restaurant. You can tell everything is authentic when you hear the staff yelling at each other in Greek, a fact that's reaffirmed by the freshness of each dish.

11. Ouzeri 4690 Rue Saint-Denis, Montreal, H2J 2L3 (Plateau)

Like the name would suggest, Ouzeri on St. Denis has a long list of wines and drinks with an upscale pub vibe to match. More high energy than a standard Greek restaurant, Ouzeri isn't just about the drinks, with its Beef Martini (a special beef stew, not a drink) being a must-eat, along with its moussaka.
