This place has the most delicious Greek Lamb Chops ive ever had! I will defiantly be back! My wife loved her salmon as well. Not to mention the service! She was delightful and very educated on everything on the menu!

We took my parents here for dinner, because of the great ratings it had. Now mind you, it was a very pleasant place, with a very nice server. However, the food didn't live up to the expectations. It was ok and plenty of it, but...More

Friendly servers, generous portions, authentic Greek food. The Avgolemono soup is lovely and their tzatziki sauce goes very nicely with the souvlaki. The dessert selection looks very good, though I've never had enough room left to try it! The location is a bit unexpected, as...More

It's nice that they offer you a small souvlaki (exchange fries for potatoes for an additional $1). Even though it was a small, the portion was definitely enough for a meal. I was a bit disappointed in my salad as it had only one olive...More

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 22 years. OPA!
