In this up close and personal interview with restaurant owner George Kountourogiannis, he reminices about the history of the restaurant, the future and his endless passion for cooking.


It all started just a few short years ago, when the lease expired on  Kountourogiannis’ previous greek restaurant location on Lake Street and he decided to leave it all behind to start fresh at his new establishment  on Queenston Street in St. Catharines, ON.

The rewards have paid off big time as George’s Greek Village restaurant has now become the go-to destination in the Niagara region for the finest greek food and experience!
