Tasty food, nice ambiance

We went there in the early afternoon so there were only a few customers. We ordered garlic prawns, chicken souvlaki and roast lamb. The service was excellent and the food came fast. The prawns and the lamb were absolutely delicious. The portions are good size and the price is fair.

We used to go to Kypriaki's old location every few months but hadn't tried the new one yet. Although they kept the name and tried to recreate the ambience, they failed miserably in every other respect. The food was nothing special and the service was absolutely abysmal. There are too many good restaurants in North Van to bother giving Kypriaki... More

I'm terribly sorry to hear you had a bad experience while dining at Kypriaki. We have only been open a couple months and are extremely busy and we are still trying to work out all the kinks. I am hoping that you will either email me at kypriaki@shaw.ca or call me (604 985 7955 preferred) so that I may understand... More

Some of the dishes were very good (Calamari, Saganaki) but very small portion for the price Roast Lamb was excellent meat, very juicy, but the greek salad is atrotious, with unpeeled cucumbers, not fresh tomatoes and only microscopic bits of bad feta cheese it was disspointing Fried Calamari was very good but spicy calamari was awful, just a mush of...

Entering the new home for this long established North Shore restaurant, I had high hopes. The room is bright, spacious and welcoming with a small patio out front. Unfortunately, the food didn't live up to expectation. I had the lamb souvlaki. While the lamb was very tender, the whole meal wasn't even warm, so I wonder if the kitchen struggled... More

Let me start off by apologizing to you and your guests. We definitely did have a difficult service that night as we only had a couple reservations and had staffed accordingly but (I hate making excuses) then one cook didn't show due to heat stroke and we got way busier than anticipated in all areas of the restaurant. Not sure... More

I don't go out for Greek often, but when I do I go to Kypriaki. Truly excellent Greek food and the atmosphere is good too. Unassuming from the outside, but great on the inside, good value and highly recommended.

Our family of four went to this restaurant on a quiet Sunday night. We had great service in the newly remodeled restaurant. We ordered saganaki and it was not great- overcooked. The gyros were good but needed more Taziki sauce. The desserts.... were AMAZING!

Back in the day - before sushi bars appeared on every block - Greek food ruled in Vancouver. Kitsilano had numerous good Greek tavernas catering to UBC students and young west side locals. The general idea was: large meals at reasonable prices (washed down with wine, of course). The Greek restaurant crowd seems older these days now that younger people... More

Went to the new Kypriaki last night with my wife and our son. The parking is excellent behind the restaurant and we were seated quickly. The breaded calimari we ordered was great and the two Pita accompanying it was both whole wheat and white and both were good and fresh. We ordered two lamb dinners and the Greek ribs which... More

The joint has moved next door to new digs and boy did they do a great job! The choice of formal dining or sports bar is nice and the food is great. Nothing fancy, just great Greek.

This taverna has moved next door fo its charming rustic cottage which makes it an attractiion in itself. In the new building the restaurant is divided half into a traditional Greek restaurant and sport's bar. The food is still great with the lamb sold out when I arrived on the third opening night!!! Locals favourite.
