A quick note about our name:

Pharos (pronounced Fah'-ros) is the Greek word for lighthouse. Lighthouses are beacons of light that guide sailors.

We love that this word touches on our family heritage, while giving a nod to the number of historic lighthouses to be found on the Bruce Peninsula, such as in Big Tub Harbour, Cabot's Head,
Lion's Head Harbour, Cove Island, Flowerpot Island and
Cape Croker.

This definition also has personal meaning. Although we opened The Tobermory Princess Hotel and dining room in 1999, our family's hospitality service in Tobermory actually began in 1977, when Jim and Bessie Kritikos purchased and operated a different business - The Lighthouse Gas Bar & Take-Out. After 10 years of fueling cars coming off the Chi-Cheemaun, and selling thousands of pizzas, they transformed it into a dining room in 1987, and ran it, along with their four daughters, for another 25 years.
This establishment introduced locals and tourists to many of Jim's classic dishes, such as his savory souvlaki and beautifully seasoned Georgian Bay whitefish.

While we bid a bittersweet good-bye to The Lighthouse Restaurant in 2011, we are excited to pay it tribute with this dining room's name, and continue our tradition of providing a beacon of light - and a nourishing meal- to all who make their way to Tobermory.
We look forward to welcoming you!
The Kritikos Family
