A group of eight of us visited the Three Kretans on a Friday evening. As others have noted, the entrance is a bit quirky, back behind a modern office building, and down a twisting flight of stairs. Once through the door, however, you enter a...More

We went here for dinner prior to a show at the nearby Centre in the Square. The good news is that the restaurant gives you a coupon for FREE parking on their lot, thereby avoiding the $7 parking charge at the Centre. Finding the place...More

This is my favourite Greek restaurant in KW. The platter for two is a great way to sample many of their delicious dishes. The food is delicious and the service has always been good, sometimes great. The atmosphere is very nice, despite the strange entry...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!
