Christina’s Cuisine is a family run authentic Greek restaurant located at 4367 boul. Notre Dame Ouest. The restaurant is open Monday through Sunday, 30 tables to seat guests and a constant flow of people through the door, so it is important to make a reservation.

The restaurant is named after the chef, Christina, who was a chef for many years at various hotels and restaurants in Greece. The family moved back and opened Christina’s Cuisine two and half years ago. Christina runs the restaurant with her son George, who has over 30 years of experience in the restaurant industry and daughter Dora, whose vivacious and energetic attitude keeps customers smiling from the moment they book a reservation to walking out with their appetites satisfied.

The dim lighting, blue walls inspired by the Mediterranean Sea, the mellow Greek music and the aromatic scents emanating from the kitchen transport you from the suburbs of Laval to a quaint coastal village of Greece. Scenic paintings of Greece adorn the walls and the tables tops are draped with traditional blue checkered cloths.

The menu is composed of traditional Greek dishes, the way you’d find them in Greece. Efie Chrissikos, a customer and friend of the family explains the food as being, “traditional Greek food the way [her] mother would make it.”

A unique feature to Christina’s that no other Greek restaurant in Montreal or Laval has is the hot table. Here you can find steaming dishes in gleaming stainless-steel trays. “Everyone tends to think souvlaki is Greek food, but there are actually so many more traditional dishes. Souvlaki is actually more fast food styled Greek food,” says Dora. Dishes such as Mousaka, Pastitsio, roast pork, stuffed peppers, goat, veal and lamb are just some of delicious options on the menu. There are many vegan and vegetarian options as well, for those who don’t eat meat. Deserts include Baklava, cheese cake and traditional Greek yogurt with honey. All of their wines, beers, coffee and olive oils are imported directly from Greece.

Whether you’re looking to have an event or party catered, ordering for take-out, or your next dinner spot, Christina’s Cuisine should definitely be at the top of your list.
