Updated: 2 July 2017
If you’re struggling to decide what to eat, try some Greek cuisine. Indulge yourself in a hearty gyro or nibble on meze. It’s fresh and delicious, plus a Mediterranean diet is only gaining points for our well-being. Here are our 10 best Greek restaurant picks that will make you want to break a plate and shout “OPA!”

Doretta Taverna & Raw Bar

Bar, Restaurant, Greek, $$$
Save to wishlist

If you’re looking for lively atmosphere, great food, and friendly service, then look no further than Doretta Taverna. This eatery, centrally located in downtown, is a fine-dining take on Greek cuisine specializing in seafood, with the grilled octopus and fish entrées being crowd favorites. However, it’s their modern twist on many well-known dishes that keep people coming back for more. With an abundance of small plates to choose from and share, going with a larger group is recommended.

Saloniki Greek

Sandwich Shop, Restaurant, Greek, $$$
Save to wishlist

Ever heard of a Greek version of Chipotle? Well, Saloniki Greek is exactly that. This fast-casual eatery, located in the heart of Fenway, gives you the option of building a grain bowl, pita, or salad or choosing from the restaurant’s own creations. So get in line and pick your fancy as the pita cooks and rises on the griddle right in front of you for that extra personal touch. The “Herc with Pork Shoulder and Spicy Whipped Feta” is not one to miss. Pair this with one of their beers on tap and skip the footlong frank at the next Red Sox game.

Gyro City

Sandwich Shop, Greek, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located in a strip mall-like structure filled with restaurants in an area quickly becoming high-rise central, Gyro City is a staple of the Fenway area. This tight, quick-serve, no-frills locale holds only a long counter and a handful of tables where diners can sit and offers authentic gyros made to order filled with rotisserie meat, fries, tzatziki sauce, and onions, all rolled into one. Portions are large with affordable prices, so head on over with a relatively empty stomach.

ZO

Restaurant, Food Kiosk, Greek, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located at the intersection where the Financial District meets Faneuil Hall, ZO combines fast food with homemade goodness. It’s a small establishment—with not enough tables to seat its bustling lunch crowd—that is a great spot to grab yourself a gyro and soup. ZO is only open for a few hours a day during the week, so plan ahead to avoid missing the chance to fill yourself with a freshly made meal that even a yiayia (Greek grandmother) would be proud of.

Gre.Co

Restaurant, Greek, Street Food, $$$
Save to wishlist

Located on Newbury Street with both indoor and outdoor patio-style seating, Gre.Co provides fast, healthy and fresh Greek food. There is an assortment of sauces and tender meats to choose from, and don’t forget to add an order of house zucchini chips to complete your order. Do yourself a favor and order loukoumades, which are Greek-style doughnuts, to top off your meal. Seating is limited, and the waiting line can snake around the block; therefore, go early enough to avoid the lunch and dinner crowds or be prepared to wait.

Desfina Restaurant

Restaurant, Greek, $$$
Save to wishlist

Desfina is a family-run business on a quiet corner at the edge of Cambridge’s Kendall Square. The atmosphere exudes the feeling of a Greek restaurant tucked into an oceanside basement right out of a postcard. But nothing brings more excitement to the restaurant like an order of saganaki, best known for being an appetizer of fried cheese. Waiters use a lighter to ignite a piece of sheep’s milk cheese to kick-start your meal, so sit back and enjoy this cozy little taverna.

Committee

Restaurant, Bar, Greek, $$$
Save to wishlist

Committee sits in the Seaport District in Boston, and its roomy and industrial vibe is a reflection of the neighborhood surrounding it. Stop by and get a feel for how the Greeks drink with their extensive drinks menu, which includes ouzo—a liquor made from the sap of a Greek island tree. The Greek-inspired food served tapas style is meant to be shared between people. The feta saganaki, halloumi, traditional spinach pie and grilled octopus are must-haves.

If you’re just looking for a satisfying Greek meal, try the Greek Corner Restaurant.

A longtime favorite of the Greater Boston area, Esperia Grill has a vast menu that doesn’t stray from the classics. From $4 bowls of soup to a $5 homemade spread, it’s affordable and authentic.
