Nice value

Small little greek place. Ample portions, well priced and the staff was very friendly. A bit on the darker side so if the tables weren't so close together it might be considered semi-romantic.

All five in our party loved the flavours, and the big helpings of food served up, but everyone's was not warm. I don't understand why, as it was early(5pm), and it was not busy. Service was friendly and prompt though. We ate here because the Greek place we wanted to go to already had, and usually does have a line... More

Being a lover of food my friend and I like to try a new restaurant at least once a month. I am passionate about Greek food and this place had good reviews so we decided to give it a try. Service: Rude, cold, seemed bothered that we were even there Food: Bad. Just flat out bad. $20 for the Calamari... More

We had originally planned on a barbecue on my son's balcony but the rain would not let up. Rather than fight the elements, the three of us felt the one thing that would cheer us up best, would be some solid Greek cuisine. No problem as Takis is just down Davie. We arrived around 3:00pm and we were one of... More

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 shoulder) with rice, potatoes, veg and... 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
