had the best fish and chips ever here. The staff were all courteous and helpful. The guests beside me were raving about their oyster dish and when other guests were leaving, I heard them say to the cashier to give their compliments to the chef. Now you hardly hear any of that during one meal! During a second visit, I... More

Four of us enjoyed lunch on the covered patio at the front of the restaurant mid-July. The service was excellent and the restaurant was open and airy. Between all of us, we sampled the Oyster Platter, the Ceasar and a couple of burgers. All portion sizes were large and the food was very good. The price was reasonable for four... More

The name is misleading . The service is good, the atmosphere/ decor a little flat but the food makes up for it. Authentic Greek food . We have eaten here twice and have had two great meals.

A small place, casual and very welcoming with good food at reasonable prices. We had a great lunch there, and enjoyed the fish pita special, an unusual twist on the 'fish taco' offerings of other restaurants. Service was friendly and quick.

What a surprise! A little eatery at the end of busy Baker Street in Nelson, BC. Greek in theme, but with other excellent food, including great fish and chips. Everything made from scratch, with lots of love. The special seafood club sandwiches were delicious, as was the fish and chips.

We took a day trip to Nelson and found a wonderful place to eat! The Main Street Diner is small and comfortable and a very wide selection on their menu. Sandwiches, salads and Greek food too. I had the 2 piece halibut fish and chips and only order this one if you are HUNGRY! Ample food and fish made right... More

Really enjoyed our dinner here. They have an outstanding selection of Greek foods as well as non-Greek choices. Most items made on site. We tried their hummus - so delicious. Simple things like coleslaw is actually prepared and marinated on site. They have a lovely street patio and the service was great. Will make a point of returning when visiting... More
