The Greeks make some of the best food out there - there's no real argument here. Gyros (pronounced YEE-ros) is one of those dishes that's among the best of the best, and luckily for us, there's plenty of it in Montreal.

This Greek dish is traditionally made by roasting meat on a spit and then shaving it vertically into smaller bits. It's usually served in a pita with tomato, onion and tzatziki sauce. Typically the meat is pork or chicken but it can be made with beef or lamb. To be honest, we don't really care which one it is, because quite frankly, they're all mouthwateringly delicious.

Villa Du Souvlaki

5347 Sherbrooke O

For an all around delicious gyro meal, Villa Du Souvlaki is the place to go. The gyro meat is cooked perfectly and their pitas are absolutely stuffed with it. What makes it even more amazing is that the fries that come with your pita are some of the best fries that you'll find in all of Montreal. Dip them in the tzatziki and we guarantee it'll be one of the best meals you've had in a long time.

Estiatorio Yia Sou

5375 Queen Mary

There's never any issue of the portions not being big enough at Yia Sou. On top of that, the mountain of warm gyro that you get is freaking delicious. You can choose between chicken or pork & lamb, both of which are insanely good. It comes in half or full sized platters, or you can get a side order of a gyro pita.

La Ligne Rouge

414 Jean-Talon E

If you're out on the town late at night and are suddenly hit with a gyro craving, Ligne Rouge is the place to go (they're open until 2:00am Thurs-Sat). And like all late night food should be, it's cheap, delicious, and will hit the spot every time.

Village Grec

654 Jean-Talon O

At this old school Greek diner, they're known for their Doner pita, and for good reason. It's a beyond delicious blend of mouthwatering authentic pork, lamb and beef gyros, all wrapped up in warm pita and topped with onion, tomato and tzatziki.

Marathon Souvlaki

5365 Jockeys + 3938 Notre-Dame + 3313 Sources

Marathon may be a chain restaurant, but their Greek food is still top notch. Their Doner pita is loaded with tender and perfectly seasoned beef and pork, tomatoes and tzatziki. You can make it a double or get a combo, which comes with doner meat, salad and fries or rice.

Restaurant Nostos

9540 L’Acadie

Nostos is a family run restaurant that has been serving Montreal authentic Greek food for the last 10 years. Luckily for us, their gyro is one of the best things on the menu, and you can get either a doner pita or doner plate. But be warned, the tzatziki is strong enough to keep vampires away, so we hope that you're a big fan of garlic.

Kojax Souflaki

1389 Saint Catherine O

Kojax has been around forever, and it's their gyro that keeps the people coming back. You get a warm, fresh pita, strips of tasty roasted beef, fresh tomatoes, onions and Kojax special sauce. It's a solid meal that will satisfy all of your hunger needs.

Restaurant Elatos

550 Jarry O

Everything about the gyro is spot on at Elatos. There are tons of different combo options on the menu to choose from, but we recommend the gyro plate; it comes topped with onions and a side of bread that is super delicious. The prices are extremely reasonable and they even have free delivery.

Facebook

Pitarifique

4160 Saint Laurent

Pitarifique took the idea of traditional gyro and revamped it into new, innovative dishes. They have a gyro poutine and a gyro club sandwich, both of which are amazing. Of course, they do also have the classic gyro pita, which is just as mindblowingly delicious.

Facebook

Restaurant Nikas

6087 Sherbrooke O

Nikas is a bring your own wine Greek restaurant that is also changing up the use of gyro. While they do have an Old Fashion Doner platter (that you can get with one pita or two), they also have Nikas Special Pizza, which is topped with lamb, pork and beef gyros, onions, sliced tomatoes and cheese - and trust us, it's amazing.

Marven’s

880 Ball

This family-run eatery is the go to Greek restaurant for a lot of Montrealers. Most people come to Marven's for two things: the fried calamari and the gyros, so you can expect that it's going to be good. The gyro itself is fantastic and cooked perfectly, and the tzatziki that it comes with has a nice tang to it. Pair it with the calamari and you're going to be in for an amazing time.

Facebook

Arahova Souvlaki

480 Saint Laurent

Arahova has been operating since the 70's, so they've had plenty of time to perfect their Greek cuisine, and trust us, they have. They have a chicken gyro plate that is done to perfection, but they also have multiple gyro poutine options (chicken, lamb or doner), which is a combination that just can't be beat. Oh and they also deliver, so you don't even have to leave your home to enjoy it.
