  • There was nothing horribly wrong with my experience(s) here, but there was certainly nothing positive either. The meal was ho hum, the service was on the slow side, and the prices were a bit steep for what you got. Think I'll pass on this one.

  • Order: burger, soup, mixed drink

  • Great place for a date night! I had gone before with a group of buddies and we had an awesome time! Took my girlfriend this time and had an ever better time. Service and atmospher were great as usual. I ordered the lamb burger instead of my usual gyro. It was good, but I love the gyro. My girl friend had the soup and Greek meze platter and loved it. Not sure about the negative experiences reviewed, but this is one of my favorite spots and I have never had a bad experience at Barangas.

  • Order: Lamb burger, roasted red pepper soup, meze platter

  • POSITIVES:

    - Great view beside Lake Ontario
    - Nice patio beside the Waterfront Trail
    - Side of beet salad w/ fish and chips was a bit good

    NEGATIVES:

    - Shared the Feta al Forno with dinner party, for $12 it was too small (two thin slices of tomato topped with bits of Feta and four small slices of jalapeno) with 8 small, dry pieces of bread (untoasted). It wasn't explained that the appetizer was so small

    - Fish was a little dry and the chips tasted frozen

    - The service was very disappointing. Waited 10 minutes for our drinks and another 15 for our shared order of the Feta al Forno, it took 30 minutes after the appetizer was delivered for the mains to arrive, had to ask twice for condiments, napkins, more water. After eating, we expressed our disappointment with the meal to a waitress and we were challenged because we finished it (One hour after first sitting down, we didn't want to send it back because it took so long to get, just wanted to eat and get out - we should have said something earlier granted, but the waitress was very defensive). Waited another 15 mins after finishing in order to get our bill and get change back.

    CONCLUSION:

    I would love to go back because it has such a great view, but won't go until food and service improves dramatically. For the prices that are being charged, either lower the prices slightly or increase the portion.

  • Order: Feta al Forno, Fish and Chips

  • When we got in, the person at the door would not let us sit outside, and seated us right next to the door to the kitchen, even though we said we would wait for a spot. We were the only ones inside the restaurant.. Drank our waters fairly quickly after we ordered and never got another for the rest of our time there. We got our meals, my boyfriend ordered the fish and chips. The waitress did not give us any ketchup, vinegar, salt, anything with his meal. She was constantly rushing back and forth past us into the kitchen, along with every other staff member, and no one stopped to fill our waters, ask us how were were doing, nothing. I tried to stop the waitress at one point to ask her for something and she just zipped by paying no attention. The fish looked like it was straight out of a box, it did not look freshly battered or anything.... disappointing for a beachside restaurant and hard to get down with no water. My tiny portion of shrimp was fairly tasty but very overpriced, I was still very hungry afterwards. Was very unimpressed, I have never left a restaurant without tipping until Barangas.. save yourself the money and just drive a little further to Hutch's.

  • Order: shrimp dish, fish and chips

  • I'm having a hard time agreeing with the negative reviews.

    I was very pleased with my meal. It's a big menu, so it's always hard to judge on one dish. It's predominantly Mediterranean with a Canadian twist, not the same ol' same ol'. Pricey indeed, but what place isn't these days?

    My waitress was also very lovely. Really friendly, and advised well in our choices.

    My table was also lakeside. Say what you will about the Hamilton beaches... it's fun to pretend! The patio area is lovely and I hope to return.

  • Order: lamb burger

  • Like other posters the only redeeming thing about this restaurant is its location. That being said, being besides Lake Ontario in Hamilton isn't exactly one the conjures up images of beach tranquility.
    The food can only be best described as a step below regurgitated road kill. Never before has my taste pallet been so insulted by what was placed in front of me. Couple that with insulting management staff, and outrageous price points on F-caliber food I would have to say that this is by far one of the worst restaurant experiences I've ever had.
    When considering a meal at this establishment, please consider all other possible alternatives before subjecting your self to self torture they call food service.

  • Order: Greek Salad, Lamb Shank, Calamari
