  • We had never been to Baranga's and really wanted to sit on a patio by the lake so we thought it would be nice to give it a try despite some of the reviews. We had nothing but an incredible experience! The service was fantastic...ask for Eli! An older gentleman, that I assume is the owner, was very accommodating about allowing us to leave our bikes on the lower patio so we could keep an eye on them. We can't say enough about the food...we had a wonderful true Greek salad that was the freshest salad I have ever had at a restaurant. My husband had the spanakopita appetizer and calamari and they were also amazing and fresh. Beer was seved in a frosted bug, nice and cold for a hot summer day. For a lake front restaurant the prices were very reasonable...check out some of the other lake front restaurants if you want to see outrageous pricing. We went back for dinner a week later with some friends and again it was a great experience and our friends loved it! The management and staff greeted us like we were family and remember who we were...very impressive given how busy this place is. To each its own I say, but this is one incredible restaurant! We will definitely be back!!

  • Order: True Greek salad, calamari, spanakopita and ice cold beer

  • The meat and salad was great. The it was nice to have a beach side view of Lake Ontario while having our meal. The only thing that annoyed me was the older snippy waitress who didn't smile.

  • Order: Gyro & Chicken Souvlaki with Greek Salad

  • 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
