About
The Papaioannou and Stathopoulos families travelled from mainland Greece to Northwestern Ontario, an odyssey that began in 1961. From the hillsides of ancient Delphi, to the shores of the Gulf of Corinth (famous for its olive oil, lemon orchards and feta cheese), the family of Dino's eventually settled down on the beautiful shores of Lake of the Woods in Kenora, Ontario. Dino's Restaurant was established in Kenora, Ontario in 1982 and has continued to flourish to this day with the same family commitment to quality. Like the Greek God, Dionysis, Dino's Restaurant has always believed that two of the most simplest and important pleasures in life are...excellent food and fine wine, which when combined with gracious hospitality, will ensure that you and your family will enjoy an amazing dining experience. From our family to yours, we invite you to visit us and enjoy some of our culinary creations and fine wines. OPA!! (Cheers!!)

We brought friends for the first time to Dinos they were really impressed , they will post their review soon ! The food is always AMAZING actually makes you say “mmm “ every single bite!! I had the Athena Chicken , it was so flavourful . My hubby got the Calamari and said it was the best he has ever had . Honestly , the food was so good we had to try and share not one but TWO desserts ! Try Peters Greek dessert it is a one of a kind and just plain heavenly , the other dessert was a pecan ice cream which was really yummy too ! The servers are so friendly you feel like you are family and the whole atmosphere of this charming authentic Greek family run restaurant makes you want to go back again and again.

Most everything was great about this small family-run Greek restaurant, which might explain why it has been around for some 40 years. Our seafood casserole, lemon veal and gyros all were excellent. Service was rushed because the place was busy, yet still friendly and efficient. Best sign was that everybody seemed to be having a good time. Excellent.

We went to Dino’s for dinner , there were four of us. The Server was very good , knowledgable and very professional. We ordered Calamari for a starter and then they had a Rib and Chicken Special. Both were fabulous. I Highly Recommend Dino’s

Server was miffed because I asked for water before she had finished her spiel about drinks. In a restaurant with good service, she would have smiled and replied, of course, I'll get that for you right away. Neither server seemed happy to be there, and only chatted if it looked like it was going to be a table of "big spenders".

My wife and I were absolutely delighted with this wonderful little restaurant. We each ordered the seafood linguine with greek salad on the side and it was superb! When the waitress found out that we were there celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary, she gave us our choice of dessert on the house! The dessert we chose was the ekmek and our lovely waitress brought it to our table with a candle on it!! To top it all off the dessert was even better than the main course! I can't say enough good things about our experience here and would highly recommend this place to anyone!

There was four of us for lunch. I had the chicken souvlaki plate....with Greek rice, Greek salad, chicken skewers, lemon, dip. , garlic toast. It was absolutely perfection. Chicken was moist and yummy. Huge amount of food, took it home with me. They had fish and chips and my husband veal cutlets...everyone cleaned their plates as everything was excellent. The service was great, we had a very good waitress. Dino’s is a family run restaurant and they treat their guests very well. It is a lovely place to enjoy time with family and friends and know you will always get great food.

Stopped in for dinner as we were just passing by. Was pleasantly surprised by the service and the food. What more can you ask for in dining out. Seafood pasta was cooked perfectly and generous amount of seafood. The Waleye was to die for. Sorry we ate it all so the picture would be of an empty plate. Although the decor is dated I still recommend it.

Dino’s has gotten to be my most favourite place to eat (we are always encouraging the owners to open one up in the city we live in - that’s how good it is!). Located downtown Kenora, ON - it’s a small place with a big heart. Upon entering, we always feel welcomed with a smile and are made to feel like family. I have no bad reviews on any of their Greek cuisine! It’s freaking awesome! Our favourites are the Greek soup and salad, Saganaki, the pork medallions, the lamb chops, and the lobster ravioli. There are numerous other meals but these are our go-to’s!! This visit it was out wedding anniversary and my husband called ahead to see if we could get some of our favourites for dinner! Dino never disappoints - he went out of his way to make sure our night was special! Take a look at our pictures from the evening! I miss it already! Oh and pick up a few bottles of their Greek Salad dressing and Marinade. Delicious!!

My wife and I met the owner of Dino's Restaurant while visiting the farmer's market. We made of the off hand comment that we plan to eat a Dino's Restaurant during our holiday. We ended up eating there the very same day and went as a family of four (all who have spent considerable time in Greece). We had a wonderful time, tasty food and were impressed by the service. We will definitely go back during future holidays. The salads were fresh with delicious dressing, the portions were generous but not overly large. The soups were yummy (I had lentil soup and my son had lemon Greek soup). We all felt that the food was good value too. Our server was helpful and friendly, which further added to our fun family dinner out. We will be back.

Very good Greek food and drink. Dino has been around a long time and the place is friendly and nice for a dinner-date night.

Came across Dino’s when i was trying to find somewhere to eat. I looked up the reviews on TripAdvisor as i’m new to the area and they were all good. I got the cup of soup which was a lemon soup as another post said it’s delicious, and it was! I also got the gyros wrap with beef and lamb with greek salad. All so fresh and great flavours! I was seated quickly and my waitress was very friendly and happy.

This evening me and my grandmother came in here and I couldn't be more satisfied. The service was amazing, very friendly and answered any questions we had about the menu and had very good recommendations. I had the lamb chops and I couldn't be any more impressed they were done to perfection accompanied with steamed vegetables and some of the best mashed potatoes I've had! Thank you Dinos for your great service and amazing food, couldn't think of a better place to bring my friends and family to eat for an amazing dining experience!! Special thanks to both dino Jr and senior and to Peter for making this place the best place in town to eat!
