Although we have been taking out their delicious souvlaki for years now, once in a while we do sit down in the adjoining room to enjoy our meal. I highly recommend you take the time to sit down. Your plate is delivered to you heaped and piping hot. I find this a much better experience than the take out although... More

Inexpensive quality Greek food. They give great portions, the platter for 1 is great for sharing. Love their potatoes.

Small, informal place. Separate room with tables for 40, maybe. Ordered at counter from very friendly, helpful staff. Fried calamari was good. Tzatziki was considered very good by some but a couple in the group complained of a sour aftertaste. Platters are huge. Greek salad was quite good with lots of olives. Beef, chicken, and lamb were all pretty good.

There is a reason this place is always busy, the food is delicious. The service is quick. I have had the traditional greek souvlaki platter, very generous portions, but I also like the pita wraps with their amazing greek salad. I agree with other reviewers that the staff are friendly, and I love to find these local gems. No need... More

Seriously, we visit this restaurant almost weekly, and never the same time of day, and the food is tremendous, consistent, the staff are always friendly, and when we can, we always ask for Irene to make our plates, as she never needs to ask what we want, she just knows!

Cozmos is incredible, the owner and employees are always so nice and the food is delicious. I usually get a pork pita wrap with potatoes and extra tzatziki. Unlike other Greek places like Greek on Wheels, instead of putting the cubed meat from the souvlaki kabobs in the pitas, Cozmos shaves the meat off of the rotisserie so you get... More

I get take-out from here with my in-laws. It is really good. Huge portions. The fried calamari is delicious (although admittedly best fresh and doesn't taste as good by the time i get home to eat it).

This is my favourite restaurant in Barrhaven. The service is exceptional and the food is always delicious. The prices are reasonable and the serving size are consistent. It's my go to place when I'm in the mood for a quick delicious meal. I usually have salad with meat or a vegetarian pita. Majority of the staff are kind and courteous.... More

I don't know what they put in their salad dressing, but it is crazy good and so addictive. Their serving sizes are incredibly generous and you get a good amount for your money. I have thoroughly enjoyed everything that I have tried from the menu and I end up ordering from them multiple times a month. My favourite place to... More

This place is great. I truly believe it's the best in town. Certainly worth going out of your way for. Not only is the food great, and the staff great, but the prices are great as well. Now I want a pork sandwich.
