Good bye Mr. Guido

I've been frequenting this restaurant for at least 10 years. The food and service have been consistently good and the décor is very authentic and romantic, which was reason enough for me to ignore the incredible rudeness of the owner. I saw him yelling at his staff in a couple of occasions, and... read more

We have been going to this restaurant for over 25 years but no more. Going back a few years you would have to line up out the door to get in, but those days are long gone. There are many reasons for this: rising prices, deteriorating food, inhospitable owner and one really annoying server. I would say this restaurant is... More

This facility has a nice Greek Restaurant environment - food was good but limited options to their satisfaction in that no offer of just a plain garden salad and if you order steak "it comes as it comes" so it is good if you like it medium.... Service was okay - but minimal follow-up on asking if things are okay... More

I had the Kalamari, Chicken Keftethes and Garlic Prawns. At first I thought I had lost my ability to taste food. Turns out its the food. The Tsatizki had taste, granted not a very good one. The food was cooked well enough just tasteless. I was amazed that food could be so bland.

Food was ok, like everyone wrote, over priced for the food you get. Portions did get smaller. Im guessing its due to the upgraded car of the owner.. Everyone knows the place for the owner having a Ferrari. Not the food. 18$ for a roast lamb.. Bit high. I guess they are right, best greek in burnaby.. If you only... More

I came here, against my sisters advise. She said it was just OK, bit I needed to kill an hour, and the website is so basic, I assumed it would be a quick salad and spinach pie, diner style. I was so shocked to see how cute, quaint, and decorative it was inside. Tons of attention to detail. Spotless, warm,... More
