I love the spanakopita platter. I usually eat half for lunch and save half for my dinner (nice take-out containers). Some people come for the salad dressing alone, but the salads are fresh, and the potatoes and rice that come with the main dish are delicious.

Went for dinner just before Christmas and was glad I had made reservations. The restaurant was packed. Lots of families out for dinner before the Christmas rush. The atmosphere was lively and the staff was great. Our meal was delicious. I had the chicken souvlaki - 2 sticks with salad rice and those great potatoes. The Greek salad dressing that... More

This place is out favourite spot in Cornwall. Service and food always great, never disappointed ! Many times there are line-ups but it does not take long before you are seated. Nothing fancy but it really does not matter. Our favourite is the Greek selection , but other guests have commented that their American fare is just as good. We... More

I just love Philos for the salads. They are fresh, crispy, garlicky, large and relatively inexpensive. Food quality is consistent from visit to visit. Today, I had a craving for garlic and Philos met the challenge. A Caesar salad with chicken was especially tasty. My wife had the SMALL Horitaki salad with chicken and could not finish it all. Lots... More

Philos has such good lunchtime specials and monthly specials that it really draws a crowd, especially the day after all the seniors get their CPP/OAS. Seniors are savvy shoppers and if they are occupying a large percentage of the space then it must be a deal and probably tastes good too. The monthly special ending on 30th Nov was Chicken... More

Ok I must admit I have been hearing about this Philo's for quite some time. I was reluctant to try it as all the other Cornwall restaurant suggestions simply grossed me out. Tonight, I was brave and decided to give it a try. Well here we go for the long-winded review. Upon our arrival, we were able to park right... More

Had the chicken souvlaki. Big salad, great rice, perfectly cooked chicken. Potatoes were good but lacked That lemony herb taste I look for, but thats personal pref and 4th were still good. My server Tasha was nice if a little evasive or rushed at times. Wasn't busy. Portion size for price unbeatable. Would recommend for a general meal.

Their Greek food is wonderful. They also offer many other food options, which are all also great. Definitely recommend for casual or family dinner. They're a favourite in Cornwall and are usually quite busy, but the service is always good.

I have been to this restaurant for years and all the food is good but the management is horrible. We've been there tons of times with my family, my family, my church, groups... We are very satisfied with the food and even the prices are reasonable. However, we always have problems with the management that is not business at all.... More
