Ikanos

"Situé au cœur du Vieux-Montréal, le restaurant Ikanos vous invite à découvrir la cuisine méditerranéenne contemporaine du chef-propriétaire Constant Mentzas. Vous serez reçus dans une ambiance chaleureuse et conviviale pour partager des mezze (tapas) inspirés de la cuisine grecque moderne. Ikanos vous propose une expérience gastronomique unique à Montréal où se côtoient de manière inventive les saveurs de la Méditerranée."-IKANOS
"Set over several levels, the 80-seat space features towering ceilings, a handsome bar, sleek banquettes and large textured “tableaus” hung around the room. With pieces of faux fur wrapped around every second chair, there’s a sort of Nordic Greek chic feel to the place. But when it comes to the food, overseen by Constant Mentzas, the tastes are strictly Mediterranean. How to resist dishes like scallops with foie gras, octopus in a panzanelle-style salad, pomegranate-braised lamb? There are all sorts of enticing grilled fish and seafood, some of which is made in a Josper oven, a closed grill that burns live wood charcoal like you see in many a Greek taverna."-Lesley Chesterman, Montreal Gazette, July 2014
