Milos Review

Don't let the nets and floats hanging from the ceiling fool you: Milos is no simple taverna (a fact reflected in the prices, which some argue are exorbitant). The main dish is usually the catch of the day grilled over charcoal and seasoned with parsley, capers, and lemon juice, but appetizers like grilled vegetables or shrimp, or the sliced zucchini and eggplant with lightly fried saganaki cheese and tzaziki, are a good way to start. Fish are priced by the pound and often displayed, along with the vegetables, in the restaurant's colorful, open-market interior. There are meaty options, too. If you're on a budget, consider the affordable fixed-price three-course late-night menu available from Thursday to Saturday between 10 and midnight for C$25.13; or the three-course fixed-price lunch menu for C$25.14.

    Fresh food fights back...

    This is fabulous restaurant and not as expensive as you might have been led to believe (although its not cheap). Milos is all about fresh food standing up for itself. The philosophy is simple, fresh food tastes better, and sauces, herbs and spices are only used by those attempting to camouflage the bland and/or their incompetence. We sat at the back of the restaurant on a Saturday evening, there was a steady ebb and flow but it never seemed over run. The wait staff was excellent, coming and going as required without interruption. The wine list is limited but if you do your homework before you go youll be better prepared to make the right decision for your budget. But regardless of staff and ambience youre here for the seafood. Yes the fish is served whole, so it should be shared. Two can easy work there way through the Sea Bass as we did. In terms of food, we ordered the Oyster Mushrooms (from Poland of all places), charcoal grilled and served with a slice of lemon, they were divine. Next up, the house special, lightly fried zucchini served with tzatziki, absolutely delicious. Greek salad arrived and was served by our waiter, who carefully ensured my wife didnt get any onions, not sure if this is house policy but it was a classy touch. Then came the nicest fish dish weve had in years, the black sea bass, naked bar the olive oil and lemon juice, was absolutely splendid. We had sides of chunky French fries (I know what your thinking but I couldnt help myself) and broccoli for a little color. The true test of course is whether or not we would return and the answer is unanimously a YES.
