One of the most creative and delicious Mediterranean meals I’ve ever had. We were nervous about going to a restaurant amid COVID restrictions but the staff took exceptional care to ensure we felt safe and comfortable. Service was outstanding and the atmosphere lovely. I would...highly recommend this restaurant and we’ll definitely come back when next in Montreal.More

- GRILLED SEAFOOD PLATTER with Shrimps, scallops, octopus and calamari. What can I say, but a delightful, singular flavor from the wood burning oven and cooked to perfection. The bread served is not one of my favorites, however my partner finds it amazing..go figure! -...SEA URCHIN DUO. Clean flavors from a pretty rich appetizer. The gel, my partner enjoyed and she is not a fan of that style. - DIGBY SCALLOPS. Cooked as they should be, just fantastic! - SALMON with beets…ahhh the only disappointment. The beets were a bit too al dente, but that is a matter of taste. However the salmon was not a sushi grade. Which might not be an issue, but it was cut in a way that resulted in stringy pieces of fish. The service would be rated higher, except our waiter appeared relatively new and had trouble finding dairy free options for my partner among other requests. However the Somelier saved the day. He was extremely knowledgeable, friendly and a great conversationalist. After we perused the Greek selections with him. He set us up with a top notch Italian white wine. I have been coming to Ikanos for 10 years, as an Old Montreal resident. Never a bad experience at Ikanos and enjoy the subdued ambiance. In the past, had amazing experiences signing up for the tasting menus with the guest Chefs. I find myself coming less often now, as the prices have increased over time. So it is more of a special occasion place for us, than a go to in Old Montreal.More

We had dinner at Ikanos and it turned out to be very delicious but a bit pricey. We had the seafood plate including octopus, squid (I guess), shrimp and scallop. The staffs are professional.

Our hotel concierge, Philip recommended dinner at Ikanos. It did not disappoint. We started with the duck & exotic mushrooms. It was magnificent. The sea urchin- not something we’ve tried before - was interesting to say the least. Our entree of grilled seafood platter was...amazing. The scallops were sweet & tender, the shrimp perfectly cooked, the calamari a bit chewier than should be. But the grilled octopus was the best part of the platter - grilled to perfection - sweet and tender with a bit of charring. Our server, Alex was a pleasure and very attentive our entire meal. He offered a Sancerre that was not on the menu. It was perfect with the seafood platter. A great evening all around.More

What a great deal with the coupon. It even covered the parking! Food was really good. Great seafood and fish. The room is lovely and the service is very good. My girlfriend has dietary restrictions and they did a great job at adapting some of...her dishes even tough we were using a coupon. They treated us like regular customers. I will come back even without a coupon.More

We were so lucky to be directed to IKANOS by our hotel concierge. We really didn't know what to expect ... after looking over the menu we ask the waiting for his input. We rarely do this but we let the waiter ( who was...tremendous) order dinner for the four of us. So, here goes ,,, we shared everything ~~ zuccini chips( everything was great ... these were the best ! ),huge greek salad, mushroom ravioli ( we did drool over this), and a grilled seafood platter ~~ grilled octopus ( a "10"), scallops., calamari and huge shrimp. Every aspect of IKANOS was magnificent ... an experienced that should not be missed !!!More

Exceptional restaurant. The decor was very nice. Service was exceptional. I ate the fish option and my wife the sea food. Both were very good. Starters were on point. All in all very nice restaurant and great service.

The service here was top notch, warm and very helpful. Our waiter suggested an extensive sharing menu for the four of us, and every item, from the oysters to several mezzes to the huge grilled seafood platter was done to perfection. We couldn't be happier...with any restaurant.More
