Had the Gyro dinner tonight. Lots of food for sure, so great portions. Everything was hot. Cooked through. Really only had a problem with the amount of salt in the lamb / beef I had. Really really salty. Had been at least 10 years since I had last been. Place looks exactly the same now as it did then. Prices... More

This restaurant doesn't look like much on the outside but inside is a nice homey/classy restaurant. It is a Greek restaurant and the food was wonderful and the server went out of her way to make sure we were pleased with everything. Loved it.

Great family run Greek restaurant, with excellent service and delicious food. The menu options are fresh and tasty. I definitely recommend this place. I believe they are also the best rated Greek in KW for many years running.

I visited the Three Kretans restaurant with my office co-workers during lunch the other day. The server was polite and quick to take our orders. There was one other table seated when we arrived. Perhaps that should have been enough of an indication? We ordered various items from the lunch menu, I opted for the Chicken Lunch Souvlaki @ 11.95... More

My wife and I dined here before a performance of The Jersey Boys and it was a super experience. It has a bright, airy feeling, despite being below street level, and very much a Greek feeling to it. The food was excellent, and served timely due to the theatre expectation. I had the lamb souvlaki, as did my wife, and... More

I love greek food and this is a great place for good greek dishes. The special dinner for 2 people is our favourite but the mousaka and souvlaki are really well done also.

Description
Angelo and Doxa Makrydakis immigrated to Canada from the island of Krete. In 1996, they decided that Kitchener needed a Greek dining experience where customers would feel welcome and a part of the family in a casual, warm atmosphere. Soon after, the Three Kretans was born. Named after their 3 sons - Gus, Zack and Niko - they succeeded in bringing the tastes of Greece to KW. With fresh ingredients and traditional Greek dishes and desserts prepared daily, Three Kretans has established itself as being Kitchener-Waterloo's premiere authentic Greek restaurant for over 18 years. OPA!
