It is not a large restaurant so it feels intimate. The decor is modern and tasteful. The food and drink menus offer a broad choice. The chicken souvlaki and the chicken Santorini were delicious. We shared half a bottle of wine (priced at $20). The bill for two, including the tip came to $83. Pinelopis is well worth driving to... More

Made reservations a few weeks ago for 6 p.m. We arrived on time and waited 25 minutes for our table. The restaurant was more full than I remember. It looked like extra tables had been squeezed in for the day. When we reserved we were told the menu might be limited. This was not our first Valentine's at Pinelopi's and... More

I recently brought my mother-in-law to lunch but this was not my first nor only time coming to this restaurant. In fact, I could say that it’s my favourite restaurant in Barrhaven. The atmosphere is comfortable. The service is top notch but as it’s a restaurant, it’s the food that brings me back, time and time again. I can’t say... More

We found this restaurant while house-sitting in the area, and have returned several times. The service is attentive and friendly without being overly familiar. Our meals were served quickly - and there was no hesitation in bringing extra bread for our Medley of Spreads. (The Tirokefteri spread is my favourite.) My pork souvlaki plate was more than enough for my... More

Consider where it is located, I suppose it is reasonable that being authentic will not fly. We went for our anniversary dinner after reading its reviews on Tripadvisor. I am sorry to say we were disappointed as we were expecting genuine Greek ethnic food. They don't even have retsina on their wine list; no roast lamb either. The decor is... More

It's a good thing my friend and I made a reservation for a Wednesday night. The restaurant was completely full! Despite it being full we were never made to feel rushed or that the servers were over worked. Our meal was delicious and service was superb. At the end of the night the owner stopped by our table for a... More

I've been waiting to find an excellent Greek dining experience locally and I finally found it at Pinelopi's Greek Kitchen! The food is delicious and authentic. The restaurant is not large, so be sure you arrive before the crowds or better yet, make a reservation. You won't be disappointed!

I love this place! My mom found it long ago when it was in another location under a different name run by the family. The owner branched out to make this little piece of paradise in barrhaven. No matter where you live in the city you MUST make the drive to eat here.

Yet another visit to Pinelopi's--a must, every time I'm in Ottawa. Great food, always delicious, always consistent and reliable. Staff are largely family, and they're all wonderful--friendly, friendly, professional, just great. Nice setting--just the right size. I'm going to get a jump on a friend who will be reviewing (for the same evening)--we both agree "Penny can't do anything wrong!"... More

Dear Penny, Yet another wonderful dining experience with you and your staff! Our friend who visits from North Bay would not consider her visit complete unless we ended up at Pinelopi's. It's become a tradition with the three of us. It was so nice to see Christina-with-the-dark-hair last night. And always nice to see Sue (aka the Martini Goddess). We... More
