We went to this little hole in the wall and it was very very good. There was a steady lineup of customers before us and after us. Many of them are local regulars. The portions were very generous and the price was very fair. We will be back.

They only serve pork or chicken gyros, so I was a little disappointed that they didn't have lamb or lamb/beef. I ordered the pork and the meat was very fatty. It was terrible, but it was just okay. Not sure I would go back.

I've had the veggie pita many times and was never disappointed. Thought I'd give the chicken gyros a try. THAT was a big mistake. I imagined slices of tender flavourful meat; what I got was huge chunks of flabby & rubbery chicken. Not very appetizing at all. I always figured the line-up meant that the place was a nice little...

If you visit Toronto and specially Toronto harbour, this is a place to visit. Small clean restaurant that serves really good gyros. The place is very small and is designed for take away, but in the summer you can sit in one of the three tables outside. I like the place , but don't expect a five star dining extravaganza... More

At the bottom of the longest street in the world is Alexandros. Unassuming small building between high-rises on a shore of the lake. Small, with enough space to sit 3-6 people on bar stools, clean and fast and efficient. I've been coming here for the last 15 years on occasional; 'fast food' lunch. And I get Pork Gyro with everyhtinhg.... More

The pork gyro had good flavor but it was overpowered with onions. The counter woman was rude, and not just to me but all the customers ahead of me. Wouldn't even smile. Overall it's a good option if you're staying at The Westin (like we are) and need a quick bite. It's right next door.

Stayed at the Westin next door and had great gyros after a long day of sightseeing. Chicken or pork, tasty, moist and plentiful, with fries, salad and pita! Stuffed.

Stayed at the Weston next door and after reading some TA reviews about their restaurant and room service we wanted nothing to do with that idea. Stumbled across Alexandros while taking a walk and ended up eating there 3 times. Everything we tried was tasty and reasonably priced.

Located Next door to Westin harbour castle hotel. Got 2 pork gyros dinners for $11.50 each - pitta and tzsasiki comes in a separate paper bag and box contained pork kebab meat, fries and feta salad. Place was busy with queue nearly out of the door but didn't take long for the server to take my order. Order was ready... More

Staying in Downtown West

Neighbourhood Profile
Downtown West
Downtown West is home to Toronto's gorgeous Inner Harbor, and is a must-visit for lovers of art and the outdoors. The area's rich cultural heritage is celebrated by a number of monuments and museums, giving the neighborhood a mature feel. As a premier destination for modern art, people here stroll through the cool contemporary pieces at the Power Plant, enjoy the outdoor installations along Queen's Quay and Canoe Landing, and picnic among the zany designs of the Toronto Music Garden. The waterfront itself is often suffused with bikers and joggers, and the harbor is always packed with classic ships with masts raised. The vintage boats and ferries to the Toronto Islands make for a charming contrast against Downtown West's backdrop of skyscrapers, condos, and food trucks serving up hot, fresh fare to locals on the go. The area has a peaceful energy, and is popular with tourists and Torontonians alike.
