    This restaurant has everything you are looking for to have a great meal : Great food, good atmosphere and very friendly and professional staff. All dishes are exceptional and very tasty. The mezze style allows you to share a variety of dishes. The scallops with foie gras is absolutely a must! This is definately not your typical greek restaurant!

    I was delighted at my dining experience at Ikanos last Friday evening. There was something very special about the whole experience. The food and service were excellent and the atmosphere had a touch of magic to it- just what I like. My dinner companions ( one from Europe and one from Toronto) are discerning and experienced when it comes to restaurants. They were very impressed.

    I had high hopes for Ikanos from the reviews on Open Table. But personally found the restaurant a bit lacking in portions. I realize the menu is modeled on small plates... but only two shrimp on the plate? A bite size of Halibut? The quality of the dishes themselves was actually quite nice. And the wine was lovely. Again, I only rated Fair due to the size of the portions.

    If you are in Old Montreal around lunch time I highly recommend this restaurant! The food is outstanding. I have been there twice for lunch and I have been telling everyone about it. Their specialty is fish and seafood, but I have also had the eggplant/lamb dish which was delicious. The tables are not 'stuck' next to each other which is a big plus and the noise level is perfect. The price of $22 for lunch including appetizer, entree and a few bites of dessert is unbeatable. Everyone should try the greek salad. It's the best I've ever had in Montreal!

    It's a relatively new restaurant and it took us quite some time to understand how the menu worked. Maybe we're just slow. Anyways, with a party of 4 or more, you could probably try out half the mezzes on the menu. In most cases small portions could play against the restaurant, but with Iknaos it's great because you get to try a lot of different dishes. And the kitchen works fast so if you want to add anything they'll be happy to oblige. They do have some really nice items like their grilled octopus and the fried zucchini which both tasted great. We also enjoyed the sea bass. I wasn't fond of the wooden style decor but that's just me.

    This place is very trendy and the food is very good...the portions are very very small and the price is very high. I was aware of the concept of Mezze but the prices were too high for what we had. Again the food was good, but we have had expensive meals in town before and we understood why we were paying a lot - it felts justified, we were left disapointed...but it is a nice place, nice ambiance and the bar is lovey. Great for drinks and a small bite on a first date, but not for dinner.

    Went for dinner with my Wife and Kids. At $400.- I felt there should have been more. I am a stickler for details.. So when I pour my own wine all night long.. Or cutlery isnt set properly when they change it often.. I get dissapointed. Portions are SMALL. No other way about it. Some items we ordered 3 & even 4 of. They were good.. but portions are just small. Even fish for two which was superb I felt was really for one. Left there feeling no more than "ok". At this price point I feel there are other players in Montreal scene that easilly outdo Ikanos.

    Food was excellent all round. At the end of the day however, it's pricey for me. Wines essentially "start" at $50 and by the end, the bill is $225 before tip. This is like London, New York etc.

    We were a large group of 7. Our waiter was awesome, attentive and great with food and drink recommendations. Highlights were the seafood platter for 2, LOVED the grilled octopus and the saganaki appetizer. Very cool looking decor too.

    We were looking for a restaurant late on a Friday night to enjoy our anniversary in a relaxed environment, with good food, good drinks and good wine. We really enjoyed the time we spent at Ikanos, the food was excellent, the waiter's suggestions were very good and, we discovered a great greek wine bottle thanks to him! We will definitely come back on our next Montréal visit.

    Nous avons beaucoup apprécié notre souper chez Ikanos. Tout était frais et savoureux. Nous avons bien été conseillés. Le plateau de fruits de mer grillés était excellent, la salade grecque parfaite et quoi dire du thon, parfait! Il n'y avait que la salade de tomates et poivrons qui était sans goût, sans saveur, ça ressemblait plus à de la ratatouille trop cuite mais tout le reste était parfait. Nous y retournerons, c'est certain.

    Authentic Greek/Mediterranean food in a simple yet lovely setting. Small plates (mezzes) offer opportunities to sample more. The staff couldn't have been more professional or friendly and while parking might be problematic, there are a few lots not far from the restaurant.
