Fresh, good Greek food and the servings are generous. The place is very large, but you still wait in line in peak hours (they need to hire a hostess that would control the flow of people waiting) - no reservations are allowed. They are very...More

So yummy and so delish, the best lamb chops in town. Even though there is a wait it is well worth it. Friendly staff, a must

Love this place. I go often with family and friends for the calamari plate and delicious lamb chops. Quick, friendly service for a great price.

Found this restaurant randomly while walking nearby, seeing a huge lineup of people in front of a house. Marven's serves probably the best fried calamari of Montreal; perfectly crispy, tender meat and seasoned well. The portion sizes are also enormous and prices are very affordable.

We went there on a sunny afternoon, ordered 2 plates, waiter brought us the wrong order, the plate was full os soggy salad with barely any noticeable fries and the rice was very dry. There is barely any room to eat. Avoid with passion, Petrit.

After leaving the Rockland shopping center around noon, we decided to re-visit Marven’s. We hadn’t been there for years. One thing, the service and portions have not changed a bit. It is CASH only. Once we were seated, our waiter, Jimmy came by fairly quickly...More

incorporated into the landscape. With prominent Greek
