Finding Greek food in Montreal is never difficult. As one of the longest standing immigrant groups in Montreal, the Greeks have made an incredible impact on Montreal's culinary landscape. Finding the most authentic Greek food, however, is a challenge around these parts.\nNow, nothing will get more authentic than yiayia's home cooking. I remember when mine would make these incredible pastichios and mousakas with no equal. I still haven't found a Greek restaurant as good as yiayia's, but these Montreal restaurants would give her a run for her money.\nREAD MORE: Best Dumplings In Montreal\nTL;DR If you're on the prowl for the best Greek in Montreal, give these authentic Montreal Greek restaurants a try and let them transport you back to the old country.\nElounda [1818 boul. de la Côte-Vertu]\nView this post on Instagram when you live next door... how can you say no to this? #greekfood #greeksalad #mediterraneanfood #mediterraneandiet #feta #oliveoil #mythos #mythosbeer A post shared by David Betito (@david.betito) on Dec 18, 2018 at 6:23pm PST\nElounda, located in Ville St. Laurent, is an amazing family-owned restaurant that serves some truly authentic Greek cuisine.

Huge portions and delectable gyro pitas are the name of the game at le Village Grec.\nCheck it out here!\nElatos Souvlaki [550 Jarry W.]\nView this post on Instagram As the kids say: these pitas were "lit fam". #Elatos #GreekEats #PitaGuy A post shared by Ben Shulman (@shulmanthesoulman) on Jun 5, 2016 at 6:13pm PDT\nIf le Village Grec is the Schwartz's of souvlaki, then Elatos is the Main Deli. The old adage that tourists go to Village and locals go to Elatos is somewhat less true than their delicatessen cousins. Both tourists and locals absolutely love Elatos and their incredible gyro pitas. Where they also score points is with their subs and pizzas, which are decidedly less Greek, but are way too good to ignore.\nCheck it out here!\nSparta [405B Sherbrooke E and 4024B Saint-Catherine St. West]\nView this post on Instagram Family Dinner Hack 👇 Fill the table with Sparta Chicken and watch the smiles hit everyone's face!
