    Do you mean real souvlaki (i.e. pork cubes in pita) or gyro (in pita)? In any case and IMHO, I think by far the best is Nostos on L'acadiemostly for their gyro pita but also for their souvlaki pita. Good runner-ups are Village Grec (Parc-Ex location mostly) and Marathon. I never understood the polls that claim George Souvlaki is the best; I thought it was very average and so is Arahova (with some locations being downright awful. Then again, if you've had it in Greece, you will never want to eat anything here; it just doesn't compare. BTW, avoid Kojax Souflaki at all cost; not only is it horrible and vile, they don't even spell it right!

      I haven't tried Nostos (will do), but with regard to the rest of your opinion I do agree with.

        George used to be very good a few years back, but there was a change of management (possibly ownership as well but I'm not sure) and it went downhill fast. I think the fact that they keep getting voted best souvlaki in the city has more to do with brand loyalty than with their current offerings.

          My favourite place is Agora on Somerled in NDG.
          It takes awhile as they cook everything fresh, but well worth the wait.
          They have insanely cheap lunch specials

          Also pretty good is Parthenon on Van Horne & Cote Des Neiges.
          Hands down the best Tzatziki in Montreal and it is also a BYOW

          I agree that Nostos & Village Grec are best by far, if you're talking about gyro. Never tried the souvlaki at Nostos, & I think I tried the souvlaki at Village Grec once, but it was longtime ago. Marathon for their souvlaki I presume? Does it make a difference at which Marathon location(their laval locations & Decarie Expressway location)?

            hungryann RE: BLM Feb 23, 2008 08:10 PM

            No diffrence...both are equal. There is also a WI location, which has the same quality. Marathon also does gyro; both the gyro and souvlaki are good but the pita is a little chewy. I prefer the fluffier pita and that's more traditional than using the arabic pita.

              The Marathon locations throughout Montreal, I'm guessing are owned & run by the founding family(meaning they're not franchise operations)?

            "Real" souvlaki is not necessarily porc. In fact, lamb is more authentic. If done well, any meat is good. (And, of course, gyro is not souvlaki, tho I love a good gyro sandwich. )

            Had to mention two souvlaki components that are top notch: the tzatziki at Village Souvlaki (Decarie & Sherbrooke) is excellent - very creamy, lots of cucumber shreds, but not too garlicky like I find the one at Arahova. I also love the fluffy pita bread at Terasse Lafayette (Villeneuve & Jeanne-Mance) - not sure if it's homemade or what they do that makes it different, but it's tremendously tasty and fluffy. Will try some of the other recs here - if I could ever find amazing chicken, pita & tzatziki in one place, I'll be in souvlaki heaven for sure. :-)

              Yes, all the breads at Terrasse Lafayette are house made. Their tzatziki is excellent too. Add high-quality grilled meat and you have the makings of one of the city's better souvlakis. Plus it's BYOB. Too bad their doner isn't up too snuff.

                  It's Villa du Souvlaki on the corner of Sherbrooke and Decarie. And it's by far one of my favorites. Go before 3 for lunch specials. I always get extra tzatziki to dip their yummy fries in.

                  La Ligne Rouge (a.k.a : the Red Line) on Jean-Talon corner of Saint-Denis (next to the Jean Talon Metro's most western exit -Direction Marché) is my guilty pleasure and the only place I can still recommend for souvlaki.

                  The pork is fresh (not manufactured and frozen in Markham), tender and spiced right. The tzatziki will assure you people (even bank tellers behind protective glass) asking where you ate for at least a week. Drive back home with the windows open even in a snowstorm and enjoy!

                      Yes, in Greece, they have lamb souvlaki, however pork is more popular. Also most gyro in Greece is made with a combination of pork, lamb and beef and it is out of this world!

                            I hope I won't be kicked off the board (or worse, laughed at and ridiculed). But I am still a big fan of the Original Arahova (on St. Viateur) souvlaki pita and tzatziki. The fries have gone downhill ( I think they are using McCains or something like that), but the pita is still great. And I love their rice pudding. I don't order anything else from them.

                            ok. you can stop laughing now...

                            We used to have a Village Grec that we could order from in the Plateau, but that closed. Those were great souvlakis as well, and I have been meaning to go to the other store. But we are just too close to Arahova... it is too easy. The sins of laziness....

                              They might of been the first souvlaki establishment in Canada, when they first opened on St-Viateur. No problem with liking Arahova Souvlaki St-Viateur, & they might still do these differently(for the better) than the other Arahova Souvlaki locations.

                                Don't sweat it. I used to like it too until I discovered Village Grec and Nostos and then married a Greek man! It's good for what it is but I know for a fact Greeks refer to it as souvlaki for non-Greeks.

                              VivreManger you still coming back to Montreal often? You can get lamb souvlaki at Yia Sou, a Greek eatery at 5375 Queen Mary(a little off Decarie blvd I think). It gets a very high rating in today's Saturday Montreal Gazette paper, reviewed by Sarah Musgrave. I haven't eaten there, so I can't comment on their food. Their menu is vast & varied.

                                          No, their gyro is a combination pork/lamb. I have never found all lamb in Montreal.

This is also the case with grilled chicken breasts, in many restaurants that serve them. Is this correct?

                                Marvins used to be one of the best...that is up to about 3or 4 years ago, when all of a sudden the quality dropped. I had gone back a few times, but the food is just not the same. The Pita on my last visit was so stale it was inedible.

                                I suspect that from the change in decor (most all the stuffed animals decorating the place were gone) that it may have changed ownership. Too bad, I really liked Marvins.

                                Just had souvlaki and yero pitas at Terrasse Lafayette after many moons away, and man,are those pitas delicious - soft, thick, doughy. And the tzatziki, so creamy and not too garlicky. The disappointment came in the meats - measly slices of dry yero and slightly better souvlaki though a little on the salty side.

                                  I've been eating souvlaki in the Park Ave area off and on since 1976 . Anyone remember Salona? Park at Fairmount. Long extinct now. I loved it, but was only 13 so don't now know if it was really good or not.
                                  I dug up this post because my family hit Arahova on St. Viateur last night and I experienced the worst souvlaki pita of my life. I'm used to the usual one piece of grisly inedible pork that seems to be in every souvlaki everywhere (and diminishes it as a go to fast food, I might add). But I spat out (elegantly I might add) 4 of the 5 pieces of pork last night and left them on my plate. Told the waiter who grunted "Did I want another one?" I said no. To his credit it was off the bill without me asking.
                                  Arohova still has great tzatziki, that's about it.
                                  Still remember literally living off souvlaki pita at take out stands while traveling through Greece about 22 years ago. They were 50 dracma each at the time. 50 cents then. Super budget traveling. Anyone else slept on the roof of a hostel in Athens in their own sleeping bag for 1 dollar?

                                    Hands down best souvlaki is Marvens in Park Ex, also best fried calamari (although you should clearly get your cholesterol levels checked afterwards!) I was at Village Grec just this past Saturday night and I was very dissapointed, it's usually much better. Also good is the original Arahova on St-Viateur, but not their franchised ones. Nostas is super overrated and insanely expensive. Lunch there cost me $30! and all I had was the chicken pita platter with salad and fries - no entrée, diet coke, nothing to write home about!

                                      this may come as a surprise, but van horne pizza in outremont makes a fine souvlaki pita. whatever tzaziki they use is wonderfully tang with just the right amount of garlic. back during my vegetarian days, I would get their vegetarian pita which the owner claimed comes with the best feta cheese money can buy - and I don't doubt it . heck i might go veg again just to justify its daily order!

                                        Well not too surprising, considering most pizzerias are Greek-owned.

                                        Hi,

                                        Being Greek myself and eating Greek food at least once a week I thought I would post my 2 cents.

                                        Marathon's (Never liked anything here, and i live 2 minutes away)
                                        Arahova (Great tzatziki, everything else is bland)
                                        Village Grec (Used to have best gyro and Souvlaki, now it is more miss than hit)
                                        Nostos ( So So, always takes forever for the girl to bring the bill)
                                        Mama's Pizza (Shameful because the owner is Greek, Disgusting)
                                        Alto ( Slightly better than Mama)
                                        Ace Deli (Slightly Better than Alto)
                                        Georges Souvlaki ( Had it once, it's enough)
                                        Elatos (Hands down the most succulent souvlaki I have ever tasted. Only complaint is they put Italian dressing on the Greek salad wtf, Following visits I always ask for Village salad with olive oil and it's terrific.

                                        As for Gyro, I am only going to mention the Real Gyro not that Chicago still crap most restaurants serve that looks like cat food.

                                        Arahova( Decent )
                                        Marathons (It is always very dry)
                                        Nostos (Decent)
                                        Village Grec ( As I said Hit and Miss, when it is good, they have the tastiest Gyro in town, when there off they are second best)
                                        Elatos ( Always Consistent but not as good as when Village Grec is at it' best)

                                            550 Jarry West. I can't remember if I've eaten there before(from the address).

                                              Now I remember trying the gyro at Elatos years ago(maybe 10 years ago). Elatos was the first place I found real gyro.

                                              Closest metro stations are Parc and Jarry, though the resto's several long blocks from each. Visit www.stm.info, click the Plan Your Trip link and enter your location and the resto's address; it will calculate the quickest route via bus, metro and/or train.

                                              You should also try Tripoli; no gyro and the souvlaki does not come in a pita but the meat is tender and flavorful. Also some friends say that Panama's souvlaki is very good but I have never had it.

                                                Stop by yesterday since I was in the area and it turn out to be my the best tasteless souvlaki plate I ever had. Leaving the place I also stinked like fried oil and all. People were very nice but didn't like their food at all. I had a souvlaki platter with 2 sticks.

                                                Anyone knows of a secret place for souvlaki??????
                                                my favorite place is parthenon. Love their tsaziki and souvlaki sticks.

                                                  believe it or not but van horne pizza in outremont does a good souvlaki. in fact, even their vegetarian version is on the very good side

                                                Arahova on St-Viateur is the best everything Greek.

                                                  they definitely do not but it is the best food imaginable at 4am

                                                  For me the best gyro in town is :
                                                  La Ligne Rouge
                                                  414 Jean Talon Est
                                                  514 277 2222

                                                  The gyro meat is always tender,moist,flavorful and no fat.

                                                    I'm not Greek, but I did grow up in Chomedey... and I have been to Greece a few times (so I can be a little objective)... and IMHO Marathon's really nails it.

                                                    Arahova's if you have no other choice... a little too fluffy and creamy for me.

                                                    Elatos... ummm... no way!! Bland and greasy. I'd sooner go to Decarie Hotdog.

                                                      Update.
                                                      Well mixed reviews I see. Will definatly try out La ligne rouge this week, never heard of it.

                                                      I am on a low-carb diet and eat at least 3-4 times a week at these places. Maybe you should give some restos another try.

                                                      I had Arahova take-out today and it was really bad. There was 6 strips of meat and a ton of white sauce, that did not resemble tzatziki in any way.
                                                      Marathons yesterday was better than usual but still under par.
                                                      Village Grec Laval location is still good for Souvlaki and the salad is ok.
                                                      I still got to admit Elatos is the best overall. Try the one stick with doner meat and Village salad.

                                                    Ive always found the original Arahova on St Viateur was great. All the others are crap.

                                                      Here are some places I have tried and liked:

                                                      1) Parthenon on Van Horne (great tzatziki, if you like garlic!)
                                                      2) Nostos on Acadie (solid) and I like their greek salad.
                                                      3) Elatos on Jarry in a real nice neighborhood for their Elatos Sytle souvlakis (fries+cheese). Greasy!
                                                      4) Marvens on Ball (Oversized pita and ok chicken but a minus of the tzatziki). I have the fried calamaris when I go.

                                                      Ive had great chicken sticks at Orama on Parc near Jean-Talon.

                                                        I aslo second Orama. I have eaten at this restaurant about 5-6 times and everything is delicious, best loukoumades in Montreal. Tied with New Tripolis in Laval for best Greek food .

                                                          My favorite will always be Villa du Souvlaki on Sherbrooke near Prud'homme.

                                                          Perfect balance of ingredients, creamy tzaziki, loaded with fresh chicken and vegetables and their puffy round potato fries are amazing and even better stuffed into the pita! I also like the brand of sweet ketchup packets they use (not heinz) Been going for decades and still just as good as ever!

                                                            Villa du Souvlaki was my go to place when I lived in NDG over 25 years ago. I love the round potato fries too, that are harder to come by now. But fresh chicken? I know, I know, chicken souvlaki has been around for years but souvlaki really is pork. I know, I know, it's really lamb. WTH is souvlaki pita anyway? Anything goes, I've never had a chicken souvlaki but I'm sure it's great. I've had so many grisly bits of pork over the years I'm willing to give it a try.

                                                            What do people in the St Henri region do for a souvlaki fix?

                                                            I know I probably shouldn't be touching souvlaki with a stomach flu, but I've got my first craving of real food in days and it's gotta be souvlaki! I feel too wrecked to venture out in the cold though. Is there anything edible by way of delivery to this hood? I won't touch S.George with a stick!

                                                              Wow, ok, I'm not sure whether it's been mentioned but I just landed on the awesomest Greek spot in the city. Move over Marathon and Marvin's... make way for Yia Sou on Queen Mary, a couple of blocks west of Decarie.

                                                              Perfect tzatziki, perfect pita, delicious meat, tangy tomatoes and crunchy cucumbers. Golden crisp fries. Friendly service, but a bit slow. Well priced (I think they have lunchtime specials) .

                                                                I've ordered from them before and with a little persuasion, they deliver all the way to St-Henri! Reasonable price and fast, friendly service too.

                                                                Wouldn't call them near the best int he city though. Their souvlakis are good and the Greek salads are enormous meal sized, probably the best in the immediate area... but I'd still take Villa on Sherbrooke and Prud'homme any day.
