Good food and selection. Quantity is more than enough and fresh. Service is prompt and helpful. Love this place but wish they would be open late in the evenings as well.

I came here before a night of theatre with a friend on a Thursday. The staff is nice and the spot wasn't too busy so I don't think reservations are required before 6:30pm. Our meal took about an hour but we stuck around for a while until the play was going to start. We had a couple appetizers of stuffed... More

Do not be deceived by the outside of the restaurant, the Oil Lamp has a wonderful, cozy Greek atmosphere. We were greeted warmly and our server was a sweetheart!! We ordered an appetizer of Tzaziki and pita, the server shared we could have a half hummus and half tzaziki dish; perfect! The hummus was delicious, rich in garlic and lemon!... More

I have been going to this restaurant for years as I used to work at the courthouse across the street. When I was working, I was there at noon. It was, and still is, very busy at that time of the day. Now that I'm retired, my friends and I go there for dinner before going to the Citadel theatre... More

This place had a lot to live up to coming from a place where the Greek food is VERY good. I have to say that i was pleasantly surprised. The food was amazing. We had chicken soulvaki and the chicken could not have been more moist and delicious. the lemon rice soup was wonderfully thick and not overly sour with... More

Having traveled a few times to Greece I have to say that the food here is some of the most authentic I have ever had over here. Of course some adjustments have been made for the local tastes and availability (not as much lamb on the menu), but it was still an excellent meal and thoroughly enjoyable. It is your... More

Some people do not like the downtown area but it is a must for an excellent lunch. It is right across the street from the courthouse and a block down from Canada place. So if you are in the area check it out. They have a lunch special for 12.50 with a choice of 5 or 6 mains that come... More

Don't be fooled by the outside of the building as it is quite charming and quaint inside. the food was very good and well-priced for lunch. I had the gyro with rice and Greek salad. the rice was ok, the rest was delicious. my colleague had the spanakopita... More

This restaurant is in a busy area with many civil servants at the municipal, provincial, and federal level and across the street from the Courthouse. As a result, they make a very brisk business in serving lunches for these employees. I don't know how they fare with dinner guests but their lunch is served very quickly and they remember repeat...

Visited this nicely decorated lunch spot for a business lunch. My associate recommended the "Calamari and Salad" lunch special. My Greek Salad and Greek style potatoes were very good. The "calamari" stuck in my mouth with a burnt taste for several hours after. It was cooked on what was clearly old frying oil and was limp in the covering batter.... More
