We had a wonderful time at Rodos. The food was incredible and the lady serving us (I think she might be the owner) was an utter delight.

Authentic Greek food, very good service and food. Wish they had more beef plates as I don’t eat lamb and fish/seafood, but all was delicious.

The decor will take you away.

My gosh I only have good things to say about this really genuine authentic Greek restaurant. Food is absolutely delicious, service is above and beyond. Everything from appetizers, main dishes, to desert is sooo good that I regret not knowing this place earlier.

I’ll become very partial to this special corner in our city, Montreal. I admit it. But I’ve a very good excuse for it. I grew up in that part of Greece, the southeastern-most islands of which Rodos is most important, -known also as Rhodes- for its historic contribution to knowledge and civilization. I spend my high school years there. I have some visitors from there.
“Rodos Restaurant!” struck me at once on your list.
The cuisine is genuinely that of the islands, the decor represents the architecture with the heavy arched columns and the unmistakable huge urns that our grandparents and great-great…great grandparents all the way to the Minoans and Mycenaeans, used to store their supplies.
Another stand out was the colorful hand-crafted plates that abound on the walls locally produced until the 1950’s that are now collectors’ items even in the Islands. My friends were amazed by the decor and the ambiance of this particular restaurant in Montreal. Then came the food and the service that made everyone happy. “I would have never imagined” said Kyriakos, my visiting friend “that I would find so much Rodos in Canada”.
The food was fantastic as it is was prepared to everyone’s taste: The Meat Platter with choice of meats to please the various tastes and preferences. in meat ‘entrees’ as well as the Fish Platter with a variety of sea food. We are islanders and we know sea food. Then came the main dish that catered to every one’s taste prepared right there fresh and hot from chef George. To cap it all we tasted their desserts: Loukoumades, luscious Baklava and the other delicacies all prepared on the premises.
And their prices are very reasonable by Montreal standards.
Thank you, Open Tables, for the listings and for making the reservations.

My date & I enjoyed a super tasty & fresh seafood platter of octopus, shrimp & calamari along with a pikilia that included scrumptious breaded zucchini & sliced eggplant. The portions were perfect and the warm & welcoming atmosphere was legit old-school Greek village. LOVED IT! I wish I had more friends who liked seafood so I could go to RODOS more often!

The worst service! The lady who served us was rude! The food was tasteless and the grilled octopus came cold and tasted very fishy. We were so turned off from the appetizers that we didn't even order any mains. We left right away.

La nourriture était bonne et nous avous eu l'impression de manger un bon repas maison. Par contre, la facture a plus de 150$ pour deux personnes avec une bouteille de vin c'est trop cher. Ça ne vaut pas la peine de se déplacer pour ce restaurant . Allez a la Casa Grec

The service was excellent and the ambiance serene and relaxing. There was not the hustle and bustle of the very busy restaurants.
We had swordfish that looked real fresh and delicious as well as lamb chops juicy and succulent.
All told not only I will recommend it to my friends, but we will there return again and again. It is our second visit there but we'll make it one of our regular spots.

The food was good, but overpriced. We had the “fish platter for two”, which really was only a small-sized fish preceded by a couple of small pieces of vegetables and a small bowl of greek salad. For that, we spent around 100$ (for the food only). We were disappointed. The Greek salad, however, was very good. Our meal was worth about half the price we paid.

What a joy having dinner at RODOS was!
At first we were worried by the lack of clientele, but once we had been seated and our appetizers started arriving, we realized we had no reason at all to worry. I say started arriving because each appetizer came as it was prepared, for all of us to share and finish just as the next arrived. Talk about relaxed! Wisely, we were not asked about mains until after the appetizers had come and gone. By then a couple of us were full and ready for nothing more than a salad. But not any salad, a lovely Greek salad with generous slabs of Feta cheese and plump Kalamata olives. We were recommended and enjoyed a very nice wine, Atlantis from Santorini, and those of us with a healthier appetite enjoyed to delicious sea bass. We were graciously allowed to move to a table outdoors on the terrace for the rest of our banquet. Everybody had desert, the baklava was good and the loukoumades even better.
We will definitely be going back soon.

We had a great meal, and all of the extra attention from the owners was amazing. they were warm, lovely people who shared their life stories with us. the wine list (although all greek) was great, and georgia did an amazing job of recommending wines we would like based on varietals we told her we were used to drinking. the food was delicious, from the fresh greek salad to the moussaka and then the fried doughnut desert which was such a hit with the kiddos. we sat outside on the porch as we were the only patrons when we arrived, and it seemed empty to be in a larger space with no other people dining. that would be my only real complaint; i anticipate that they are busier during the weekend. it was nice to have all the personal attention though, and likely resulted in faster service as georgia was the only server when we were there!

Classic Greek taverna with nice atmosphere and good, but not great food. Pricey for what just an okay dining experience. Service was charming by I assume one of the owners, but more staff would have made for a better experience. Just 1 waitress for the place on a Saturday night.
Grilled fish was fresh and good, the prawns were average (likely frozen). They either need to up their game in terms of food quality and service, or reduce their prices to warrant a 5 star review.

Went to RODOS Restaurant a week ago and throughly enjoyed our dinner! We've been to many Greek restaurants in Montreal but this was the best. First, the atmosphere is exquisite, with authentic folk art and decor making you feel you are actually on the island of Rhodes. The owners (and chefs), George and Georgina make you feel like you are their private guests and make excellent recommendations from their menu. The food is super fresh and includes wonderful mezedes (Greek hors d'oeuvres) such as kolokithakia (fried zucchinis), dolmades (stuffed grape leaves) and horiatiki (the real Greek salad). The menu is mainly selection of fresh fish and seafood, but you can also get some meat dishes like lamb and moussaka. We opted for the hors d'oeuvres and some Calamari and shrimp. We had galaktoboureka (Greek custard pie) and loukoumades (small doughnuts) for dessert which were so good! They have a good selection of wines from Greece and can of course serve you good Greek coffee. Highly recommended. We'll definitely go back.

Attentive service from George and Georgia who own the restaurant. George, the chef, even came out to greet us, a nice touch.
The best stuffed vine leaves I have ever tasted were followed by perfectly grilled oyster mushrooms and red bell peppers. Next up was a surf and turf plate featuring one succulent lamb chop and one jumbo shrimp, both grilled and both very tasty. Then came the main course, a perfect piece of swordfish nicely charred on the outside, juicy and flavourful on the inside, with a medley of vegetables. All this was accompanied by a refreshing white wine from Santorini.
Desert of home-made galaktoboureko and Greek coffee rounded out a delightful evening.
