Casual spot, Great food

Best Greek in Vancouver so far!! I love Greek food, and eat it often so I guess you could say I'm a bit of a snob about it. Takis Taverna has the traditional dishes that I love; ie: feta & olives, spanikopita which you can have as a dinner and lamb. I haven't been to Stephos so I cannot... read more

I had been through a long day of meetings and was heading to my hotel across Davie and said 'Enough...' and parked ... went for a walk and was shortly in front of Takis ... it was inviting with the street facing windows open and a small table empty. I went in and was not dissappointed - Had the roast... More

A friend who lives locally suggested we meet here Lunch. She recommended the seafood platter. On the hand it was a decent size for three, on the other hand the food was decidedly average. We accompanied our meal with a half litre of US Chardonnay. It was god, but expensive. Overall, our dining experience, including tip and taxes, left little... More

Local advice told my party of 4 friends to skip the bigger Greek restaurant on Davie with it's accompanying lineup and instead, have supper at Takis. We were very happy with our decision! We were welcomed warmly right away and proceeded to have a very good meal. The artichoke dip was amazing. It was cool and refreshing, served with warm... More

While on a recent stay in Vancouver, my family and I were looking for a place to eat in west end (Davie village). With 2 kids. I wanted to try something more unique. We happened upon The Greek By Taki Taverna, and liked the ambiance and energy. The food was fantastic, and our server was delightful. Even Takis stopped by... More

First of all we went to this restaurant because some guy in the bus told us he liked it so much, so we decided to go and see. We went in lunch time and they have some deals that at the beginning seemed quite attractive and we chose the 2 dips with greek salad or soup for 7.95 CAD. The... More

We always eat Greek food when we're on Robson street, and our old favorite (Kalypso) recently closed. We used trip advisor to locate a few options and narrowed it down to Takis or Stephos (on the same block), both a few blocks from Robson. A nice lady on the street told us we wouldn't regret Takis, so we went in.... More

We always return to Takis Taverna whenever in Vancouver and have never ever been disappointed! The ambience is warm and friendly, the staff are amazing, with the owners present and engaged all the time. The food is out of this world - the lamb shoulder (forget the proper Greek name) gets me every time, its unbelievable, and the saganaki is... More

We live a few blocks away and went here for lunch with friends. Staff was super, friendly, mentioned the specials, water came promptly and was refilled, made sure everything was good. She was excellent. Atmosphere fine, here for a visit with friends. Food was good, served hot, pita came for a snack, really enjoyed. Would absolutely go back.
