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 23 years. OPA!

I love greek food and this is a great place for good greek dishes. The special dinner for 2 people is our favourite but the mousaka and souvlaki are really well done also.
