About
To visit Kenora and not dine at The Plaza Restaurant would be a Greek Tragedy! What began as a simple diner back in 1969 has evolved into one of Kenora's iconic restaurant. While Thanasis (Tommy) & Maria Adamopoulos introduced Kenora & the Lake of the Woods area to the Mediterranean Diet and the "Greek" way of life, Konstantina has successfully carried on the family tradition using her parent's authentic recipes & lovingly makes everything from scratch (except the chicken fingers). Not into Greek cuisine, The Plaza also offers delicious pastas, full-flavoured steaks, succulent seafood, savoury ribs and of course mouth-watering Lake of the Woods walleye. Since the covid pandemic, the Plaza has pivoted to a "Touchless" Delivery & Take Out Service... So now, not only are we known as "The Greek Gods of Casual Fun Dining but also as "Greek Gods of Touchless Delivery & Take Out" Stay Safe Everyone and remember to always Put A Little OPA in your Life!

What an absolute gem this authentic Greek restaurant is! I asked our server a question, and she had Tina, the owner come over to answer my question. Despite it being busy, Tina stayed and chatted with us. The food was delicious, and the avgolemono was especially tasty. Yum! We were just passing through Kenora, so this was our only opportunity to eat there. I’d go again and again if I could. It was a memorable dinner. I highly recommend it.

I now live in Thunder Bay where the Greek Restaurants don't even come close to the fare at the Plaza. Since June 2023, we have visited family in Kenora 3 times and each time, we ate dinner at the plaza. In my opinion, the Kalamari (appetizer or dinner) is the best – it is served with Tzatziki, lemon, thin red onion – perfect. Their soups are made fresh daily, my favorite is Saturday’s – Wild Rice Mushroom Curry, although seasonal, I was able to enjoy. Another appetizer, the Homous perfectly seasoned & creamy, has become a fan favorite and can be purchased to take home at the restaurant or at Keewatin Place of you’re craving it on a Sunday. Other notable mains are the grilled souvlaki, pork or chicken, the moussaka and chicken parmigiana. Their house red wine – Apelia is the perfect accompaniment to any meal. I want to acknowledge the kitchen staff, servers and of course the owner Tina – for doing such a great job, keep up the great work - 10 Stars!

Heard that the Plaza was THE PLACE to go to for greek food when in Kenora so knew that my husband and I would have to check in out. A major bonus - on Wednesdays they offer HALF price bottles of wine. We started with a saganaki which was entertaining and so delicious. My husband had the Olympian and I had the roast lamb - both were fantastic. The meat was so tender and flavourful. Some people might find that the prices are "high" but for the quality and portion sizes, we felt it was on par! Our server Daniela was so friendly and attentive and you could tell by looking around that all the staff go out of their way to ensure everyone has a great experience! Will definitely be back!

After checking the reviews for the Plaza I though I was going to be treated to an exceptionally good food experience. This was pick up orderthat I made. The waitress who took the call was pleasant and after placing the order she informed me that the tac on a auto gratuity. I asked how and why and her response was it statred at the pandemic because the staff do a lot to prepare a pick up? She did ask if I wanted to speak to a manager but I declined figuring that the meal would be top notch. I penned a note to the manager picked up my order and left the note with name. phone and email address (gratuity). The staff were nice and had it prepared on time .I was still going to have the best food in Canada apparently so I was still looking forward to this dinner. First this is the bill The souvlaki was well overpriced and 35.00 with an automatic 15% yes 15% gratuity so my meal less taxes came to $.40.25 With added govt taxes the total came to $44.80. Was it great food. Hardly. The skewers were very salty/dry, the roast potatoes( not Lemon roasted) were like the square breakfast potatoes but roasted. The rice was yellow but had no flavor. The greek salad was a couple large chunks of lettuce with a couple olives, couple lenght cut green pepper slices, some tomato and maybe a cucumber slice, with side dressing The cost of this meal is well within the price range of a higher end steak restaurant like the keg in Winnipeg. In Winnipeg we utilize 3 greek restaurants in the St. James and Charelswood area All are much better than the Plaza, half the cost and no automatic gratuities (15%). If you are heading west from Kenora I would advise you to wait for greek food until Winnipeg. ( Olympia Diner, Taverna Rodas and a small a pick up only place called Greek Market). They are far better, fresher and larger portions for half the price. Note : The Greek Market does not even accept tips. What? Yes They do not accept tips. What a novel idea. Pics to follow Have a nice summer

My family has enjoyed coming to Plaza for years & it’s still one of our favourites. Tina & her staff go above and beyond to make you as happy & full that is possible. They really make you feel like family every time you’re in there. We went tonight for my birthday dinner and like usual, it didn’t disappoint. The appetizers, drinks & dinner were delicious and my cake with candle & singing was the perfect end to the night. Thanks again Tina & everyone for helping to make another perfect experience for us. ♥️

The decor made you feel like you were on the coast of Greece. The food was excellent. We had the veal cutlet dinner. Large portion of veal along with garlic mashed and veg. It came with soup or salad and garlic bread for the table. I highly recommend the Plaza Restaurant is you are passing through Kenora.

The Plaza despite not being open for dine in yet as we live out of town always has amazing food and quality. The ladies who take your order are always great and cheerful. We can’t wait for the dine in option to happen again. Maybe next week they told us after nov.14th. Saganaki is amazing, tried the Ekmek also good. You won’t be disappointed!

Truly a hidden gem in Kenora. Staff are especially attentive to persons with allergies. In our case shellfish and gluten. The souvlaki and lamb ribs were the best Ive ever tasted. Fresh herbs and perfectly cooked. The he decor takes you to Greece. Excellent value for a really good meal.

Delicious food in a super fun atmosphere. Loved the Greek decor. I ordered the spanakopita with asparagus and Greek roasted potatoes. They were hands down the best Greek potatoes I’ve ever had, and I am still dreaming about them!

So I am born and raised in Toronto and most weekends were spent on the Danforth enjoying what I thought to be the best Greek food I would ever have in my lifetime….psych! That was until my girlfriend took me to Plaza. She was raving about it for months and I was like ya ya, I’m sure some restaurant in a small town can beat out a whole street in Toronto full of Greek restaurants as far as the eye can see. Well it was a humbling experience as she looked at me as I took the first bite of the dip trio and said “I told you so”. I’d be willing to have her be able to say I told you so for the rest of my life to have that plate of chicken souvlaki and calamari again. So good that I came back the next day and oh also drove 16 hours back to Calgary with enough hummus to last me 6 months…I hope. But in all seriousness Plaza is truly one of the greatest meals I’ve ever had, the service was incredible, the atmosphere they created makes it feel like you’re in Greece and above all the owner Tina makes you feel like part of the family. When they say you can taste the love in food, well then Tina is Cupid herself with how much love is in that food. I’ll be bragging to my friends and family back home in Toronto that I’ve eaten at the best Greek restaurant in Canada. Don’t walk, don’t run, sprint to plaza as soon as you can, or because it’s located in lake of the woods boat there, just get there. Counting down the days till I’m able to go back. PS highly recommend the dip trio, any of the souvlakis, the green lemon soup, navy bean soup, calamari, and Maria’s mocha almond ice cream!

All I can say is WOW... If I knew that by surprising you with your "Houmos" request, the Plaza would end up with such a beautiful review... I definitely would of made more. I am so happy, the frozen houmos made it all the way to Calgary. Thank you so much for your kind words. I am truly beaming with pride and joy and excited to show my Plaza Crew this review. Can't wait for you and your girlfriend to return so you can try other Plaza dishes. Until next time....OPA!!!!

You won't be seated unless you have the exact number of people for a table. Don't try to go as a group - if you are one short for a big table they won't let you in.

Hi Sandra Paul, First off, you were extremely rude to my staff, they were just doing their job and following my seating policy. The fact, that I needed to leave a busy kitchen, because you thought the policy shouldn't apply to you, blows my mind. Happy to know, we no longer have to serve you. OPA!!!!

Have just finished my meal and needed to write this review immediately! Service incredible, and the food even more so. Moussaka true to tradition, beautiful nutmeg bechamel topping, and the avgolemy ( lemon soup) was delicious! The Emmet desert outstanding! Don’t miss this Greek restaurant!

A little bit pricy. But great food and contactless pickup or delivery available due to Covid 19. The special of the day is always great and fresh.
