i was disappointed that there are only Greek wines on the menu. I understand that it is a Greek restaurant but surely local wines could also be offered. They would be less expensive and of a much better quality.

Although the food was good, I was astounded at the price! Had I realized how much this meal would cost, I would NEVER have gone.

I recommended this restaurant to 2 other couples as a place for us to go. I had heard that the food was good and it was BUT it was definitely not worth the price. We have been to equally good fish restaurants that were not nearly as pricey.

In addition, they have a promotion going on that their Greek wines are half price during this month. It said so on the wine list. We thought that was very reasonable given that their wine list is super expensive. We ordered wine that was reasonably drinkable. When the bill came, we saw that the prices listed on the wine list were the reduced prices rather than the regular prices that we thought. No where on the list did it clarify that these were the prices that would be charged. We were absolutely shocked! After speaking with the manager, we did come to a reasonable resolution given the mix up but this should never have happened in the first place.

As I said, the food and the service were very good but be warned that the prices are sky high.

Great service, very knowledgeable server on wine. Slightly pricey, but quality speaks for itself. Great for light dinner.

Had a wonderful dinner on OCTOBER 31. ( note to all- if you are able, it's a great night to try a new, hot restaurant)
The service was understandably terrific as the ratio of staff to customers was fantastic in our favour.
However, the food was absolutely delicious also and that had nothing to do with number of customer.
We will definetly be going back,

Paralia has a great environment and terrific food. Prices are high and beyond regular visits for us. I worry they will survive the winter months when the great views are less compelling.

Went on a rainy day but still loved the feel of the restaurant. The server was really nice as well as everybody else who worked at the restaurant. I definitely can't wait to come back in the summer time on a hot sunny day! You would literally feel like you were in Greece!

As a restaurant that prides itself on their amazing selection of fish... They ran out of fish!

We were left with a choice of 3 small pieces of halibut they had left, of which our table of 10 took one, and were provided with one overcooked piece of halibut to share morsels of!

The server was amazing! Very passionate about his job and did very well with what he had to work with.

Very warm welcome at the door by the hostess and our waitress is very knowledgeable and have recommended one of their top selling salad to us. They also have a wide selection for wine and the food is just excellent! Last but not least, LOVE the way the restaurant was decor! We feel like we were in Greece during our visit!

I was disappointed because I really liked the food at Trinity in Montreal - the decor and ambiance were fantastic, there was a nice buzz, but the food was not great, and pricey for what it was. The calamari appetizer had too much breading, artificial tasting seasoning and the squid texture made me wonder if this was a frozen appetizer from Costco. The lamb was worse: overcooked chunks of tough, chewy meat. We didn't eat it and pointed it out to the server but no one came to our table and it was not removed from our bill. We had two bottles of wine and tried several dishes so we had a hefty bill for what was not a very memorable meal.

Our waiter John was magnificent! OUTSTANDING service!

The food however could be better... excellent presentation, but for the price point of this place, it should leave you at WOW! It didn't.... disappointed. We were a large group- Ordered- Fish, Lamb, Chicken (which tasted the best), Shrimp, Rice, Potatoes, Mushrooms, etc (you get the idea) so we had a great sample of all the food the place has to offer!

Excellent ambiance, feels like you left Toronto, and the outdoor patio is amazing.

I had a large table and it was my duty to walk over the say 'HI' to the manager, who really wasn't doing much the entire night..... oh well. But John the waiter made up for the night service! Generally the staff were very accommodating and helpful!

I'll probably be back, just for the patio experience and ambiance.... and the chicken :-P

We have been to this restaurant a few times. My daughter is off to France for a school exchange plus we wanted to toast to my dad's upcoming BD before she leaves. We wanted a comfortable but memorable dinner before we head out to the airport. Paralia did the job perfectly. The food was consistently quite excellent. The server was friendly and professional (That was quite consistent too). The setting makes it easy to imagine you are enjoying a causal evening in Greece!
