BAR KOUKLA BY DAY

We’re serving our Aegean-inspired meze menu for lunch Wednesday through Friday from 11:30am during the winter months. Gather with friends and stay a while in the comfort of our Ossington home.

We recommend reservations for our indoor dining room as space is limited. You can secure your spot through Resy. Our fare will also be available of Uber Eats for pick-up and delivery. 

We serve our unique take on brunch weekends from 11am-3pm. Enjoy traditional Aegean flavours through a reimagined menu of brunch classics. Dinner service every night of the week from 5pm-late.

Welcome to Bar Koukla, an Aegean-inspired meze + wine bar located on Ossington Ave in Toronto’s famed west end. The younger, more rebellious sibling to our original 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.
