BAR KOUKLA

88 OSSINGTON AVE

Meze, vino + cocktails by way of the Med

Our sun-drenched patio is now open for outdoor dining with our kitchen + bar firing Wednesday through Sunday from 12pm-10pm. 

Meze, natural wine + cocktails against the soundtrack of Ossington. No reservations, walk-ins only. We’re keeping things casual over the Summer months. 

Bar Koukla is an intimate patio setting in Toronto’s famed west end. The younger, more rebellious sibling to our original Ossington outpost Mamakas Taverna, Koukla’s open a little later, the music’s a little louder, yet our interpretation of contemporary Greek style offers the same unrivalled authenticity.

We’re genuinely thrilled to be welcoming you back to our Ossington home. See you soon, Toronto.
