Can't Go Wrong With The Main...

Great spot for a beer and good food on trendy Main Street. We were drawn in by the amazing aroma coming from the kitchen and we weren't disappointed. Above average Pub style decore that shuns the cookie cutter style that is so common today. Very good scotch and local beer selection, and our... read more

The Main is a great place because of its consistency, ever meal I've had hear has been awesome. Not only that but The Main boasts a classy atmosphere, friendly service and a good selection of beer on tap. Plus it's one of the few places in Vancouver that accepts debit!

Went there with some friends and we were quite surprised it was a Greek style cuisine. Think my main wasn't the right option (had a veggie burger that was a little burnt). My friends said their mains were good tho. Service could've been more attentive.

Wanted a little Greek, so ordered the chicken souvlaki. Pretty standard - nothing bad, but not extraordinary. The tzatziki sauce was better than average. Service was great. If you want the basics, this is a place to get it. I'd go back.

We've been to this location a few times and find it to be a place you can count on for good service and good food. Thanks Mary.

I'm slowly working my way through all the restaurants and bars on Main Street and when the room mate and I couldn't be bothered cooking we headed here. The building is pretty cool, its big and airy plus it was a hot day so they had all the big windows open. Service was friendly and fast, I had the special... More

The Main has the best calamari I have ever eaten. It is large tender pieces with a light crispy batter. The burger is really good too. The portion sizes are generous. The lamb souvlaki is really tender and the greek salad has large pieces of vegetables. The soups are made from scratch and the small bowl is big enough for... More

We had our choice of tables on a Sunday afternoon but kept away from the open windows as there was quite a breeze. (Even so our service totes were blowing about.) Service was prompt and politely impersonal. Food was good, but not great. Reasonable prices for smallish portions.

Lately we have visited some of the restaurants along Main Street. Last week we stopped in at The Main for lunch. The name itself gives no indication that this restaurant specializes in Greek food. Lunch during the week offers the standard Greek fare. Both of us had a small serving of soup, my wife the Bean soup and I the... More
