In the basement of the YWCA, the room was surprisingly large and even a bit atmospheric. We were towards (but not at) the end of the lunch period and the server had to be convinced by the chef (or manager) to seat us but once...More

This restaurant doesn't look like much on the outside but inside is a nice homey/classy restaurant. It is a Greek restaurant and the food was wonderful and the server went out of her way to make sure we were pleased with everything. Loved it.

Description
Angelo and Doxa Makrydakis immigrated to Canada from the island of Krete. In 1996, they decided that Kitchener needed a Greek dining experience where customers would feel welcome and a part of the family in a casual, warm atmosphere. Soon after, the Three Kretans was born. Named after their 3 sons - Gus, Zack and Niko - they succeeded in bringing the tastes of Greece to KW. With fresh ingredients and traditional Greek dishes and desserts prepared daily, Three Kretans has established itself as being Kitchener-Waterloo's premiere authentic Greek restaurant for over 21 years. OPA!
