Kallisto Greek Restaurant

Address: 2950 Bank St, Gloucester, ON K1T 1N8, Canada

Kallisto Greek Restaurant is also nearby the airport. When you've rented a car, truck, or SUV, just drive over to 2950 Bank Street – it's only 8 minutes from the airport, tucked into a strip mall – and enjoy this enjoyable Greek dining establishment that gets rave reviews from the locals! We recommend the tender, grilled octopus appetizer and the juicy, flavourful chicken souvlaki plate as an entrée, but you really can't go wrong here!

Other wonderful choices for a meal near the Ottawa International Airport include Vittoria Trattoria – a favorite Italian place – and Chef Bento for sushi. Try either one, depending on your mood and tastes! They're only a short drive away, thanks to the high-quality car rental you've booked at VroomVroomVroom.
