The Best Greek Restaurants in Hamilton

IOS Estiatorio & Wine Bar

I recently dined at ios Estiatorio & Wine Bar and was thoroughly impressed. The menu offers a mix of international and local dishes that are constantly changing and evolving to meet customer needs.

Their wine selection is impressive, featuring a variety of options from all around the world, as well as local producers.

The appetizers, soups, salads, and main dishes were all delicious and the wine pairings were spot on.

The service was top-notch and the modern setting with spacious interior and large patio area (available on weekends) added to the overall experience.

I am a big fan of Greek food and this place exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend ios Estiatorio for anyone looking for great Greek food, excellent service, and fair prices.

Greek Palace

Greek Palace is a family-owned restaurant, they are dedicated to serving authentic Greek and Mediterranean food.

I came with a group of friends, and we were blown away by the quality of food. The gyros and souvlaki were tender, flavourful, and super tasty.

Their soup was also great! We also had a garlic bun, which was delicious and very fresh!

My Buddy's Greek Bites

I've been coming here for a couple years now and I would say it's my favorite spot to grab some Greek food in the area.

There is just one location, but they have seven tables inside and another eight outside (eight is usually enough because it's a bit of a tight squeeze inside.)

The prices are very reasonable, especially considering the size of their gyro sandwiches.

I recently check out this place, and I absolutely loved it! Great atmosphere with a very friendly cashier/server, great owners who are interested in only serving high quality ingredients and natural foods.

The food was absolutely delicious, I had the Greek latte, Greek fries and chicken pita.

I’ll definitely be coming back!

I heard from a friend that Acropolis was great, so we decided to try it.

The food was perfectly seasoned with a really great flavor profile that, my friend who is someone new to Greek cuisine, said she could really get into such flavors.

The service was even better than the food. They were extremely friendly and made sure our visit was enjoyable.
