Mamakas
Is an upscale 1st class Greek Restaurant in the hipster Ossington area.
Definitely delicious, you will find an authentic and amazing cuisine that the Greeks are well known for. Offering a more sophisticated Greek menu, making Mamakas Restaurant one of the best Greek restaurants around.
The lamb and fresh fish were exquisite. Everything thing else was just superb.
Bravo Mamakas OPA!
Well worth the extra cost.

Who would think "Greek" could be upscale. Beyond the fresh first rate ingredients that many other classy greek restaurants highlight. Mamakas blends creative spins. Incredible staples such as lamb, spanakopita, and tzatziki are given delicate first rate twists.

Visited by reservation on a Wednesday evening. Dinner hour was just getting underway, so while the restaurant was sparsely filled when we arrived, that soon changed. As you walk it, you are greeted by the wonderful smells emanating from the grill to your immediate left. The service from the door to the table was welcoming, seamless and warm. The waitress knew the menu well and made excellent wine recommendations. The tzatziki was homemade and tasted just like the one mom used to make. The horiatiki salad complemented the grilled octopus appetizer very nicely. The entrees were over the top delicious. My son ravenously devoured the succulent kotopoulo (chicken). My wife and I shared the baked Sea Bass (some of the best I've had in a long time). One daughter thoroughly enjoyed the mousaka while the other daughter could not have been happier with her choice of paidakia (rack of lamb). Don't overlook the dessert - the 'standard' baklava was uniquely presented and surprisingly light. Two thumbs up to Mamakas Taverna - we can't wait to go back.

Make a reservation in advance of your trip to Toronto. This is the best greek restaurant in the World. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. Service is 5-stars - the food is 5-stars - the ambience is energetic.

IF you have a family meal, or just want to dine on fine lamb chops, and excellent tzatiki with rare greek wine - do head over.

Don't believe me, check out their Instagram @mamakastaverna !!!
