Great Greek in Vancouver!

Takis Taverna is as authentic as you'll get away from Greece! The decor reminds you of visiting the house of that Greek friend you had in school. Pics of the family and of the old country surround you. The food was plentiful and the lunch specials were amazing value. I had the Kleftiko (lamb... read more

When I met one of my friends in downtown Vancouver he suggested to go to “Taki’s Taverna”, a Greek restaurant at Davie Street. I was surprised that that I have never heard about that restaurant. But when I checked out the website I realized why - it was simply too expensive to me for a casual dinner. Anyways, we went... More

Service was great, as was the food. Wine was good. This place is popular with locals, and good also for tourists, such as us. Easy going place to sit in, we felt comfortable right away. We might also have lunch there next visit.

Went to this restaurant on our first night (Saturday) in Vancouver. Very busy, luckily we had booked, so would advise this. Good, lively atmosphere. Service very good (though it took a long time to pay at the end). Food, again, very good though far too much. There was 6 of us, all with quite good appetites but not one of... More

A little spot that came highly recommended on Davie St. You know it's good when the hotel suggests it and three people stop to tell you how great it is as you are being seated. They were able to take a group of Grey Cup revellers at short notice and were very good about menu suggestions, explanations and requests. An... More

We we're visiting from the UK & were on... More

I not one to wait very long so I have always passed up Stepho's and gone here instead. It is only a few doors down. It may be slightly more expensive than Stepho's but only slightly. Very good Greek food!

To life, that grand and wonderful journey.. OPA! And to the one of the greatest joys of living, to eat. Eating the best and the most beautiful of all cuisines, the Greek plate. Takis is a darling gem, hidden past the long lines of Stepphos, which is just half a block down. Stepphos offers large plates of Greek fare for... More

We really enjoyed the roast lamb platter. It's evident that this restaurant puts a lot of love into their dishes.
