We had a lunch there celebrating St. George's day and the friendly, warm service made this special. The food was great. The roast lamb was one of the best we have ever tasted. The prices are very reasonable. They even have a three-course prix-fixe menu with good selection, which is a deal. We highly recommend this restaurant and will definitely... More

We went for a lunch on a weekday. We got a great and warm service from an elderly waiter. Food was delicious and we were served quickly. The owner also said hi. I highly recommend this place!

I've written about Pan before, I know. This is my favourite place on the Danforth for many reasons. First, of course, is Food. The food is delicious, with excellent variety. I would strongly suggest that you try the Grilled Lemon Chicken with the Feta Scalloped potatoes. Topped with huge crispy onion rings, it is just a wonderful explosion of flavours... More

Food here is incredible and reasonably priced. So is the atmosphere. Around 7:30 pm there was a Greek belly dancer followed by a band playing Greek music. Be sure to try the flaming saganaki cheese and the roasted lamb shank. Everything was amazing. The restaurant has valet parking or you can try your luck on the street.

Staying in East End

Neighbourhood Profile
East End
The East End is an eclectic amalgamation of areas that team up to make this district one of the most multi-faceted and alluring. Home to Toronto's LGBT community hub, Gay Village is alive and pumping day or night with friendly bars, nightclubs, and cafes – its thumb is on the pulse of excitement. For a more relaxed day, the East End has the largest collection of restored Victorian homes, and its stately streets, tree-lined and bursting at the seams with affluence, often sport farmers markets and street artists, epitomized by the effusive St. Lawrence Market. One of the most gorgeous of Toronto's neighborhoods, it also straddles Lake Ontario in an area called The Beach, where you'll find folks cycling and strolling along the sandy shorelines, getting some sun or enjoying shopping, dining, and pub options. For some fabulous food, the vivacious personalities running the restaurants in the East End's Greektown is only equaled by the fun and authenticity of the street stalls and restaurants at its expansive Indian Bazaar. 'Something for everyone' has never been so accurate.
