I took my friend who is a person of colour visiting from out of the country to this restaurant. He arrived a few minutes earlier than me and I didn't notice anything unusual upon my arrival. During the course of dinner, he told me he felt something odd about the way one of the "older ladies" received him. He said... More

In no way are we racist or want to be perceived that way. We have a very multicultural staff at Taverna Greka so to call us racist is untrue. If your friend would... More

We have been going here for many, many years and have never been disappointed. Yes the food sizes have been reduced but a very little, and the prices have not gone up very much over the last 10 years. Just sit and enjoy the views and the service plus the belly dancing on Friday and Saturday nights. I like so... More

Taverna Greka was our go to spot for lunch in New Westminster yesterday - the usual “early-birds” when we dine out for lunch - we arrived at the restaurant shortly after it opened at 11am. We received friendly, welcome greetings upon entering, and were shown to a window table, about mid-restaurant in location, so had very commanding upriver and downriver... More

My favourite restaurant in New Westminster. They serve mostly Greek food - I especially like their roast lamb. The servers were friendly and did not rush one. And their is a nice view of the Fraser River. The restaurant itself has an interesting layout and decor --- great for a romantic dinner (or lunch).

This had come well recommended by a colleague and our family was not disappointed. It has an old world feel to it that we really liked and we could sit by the window in full view of the Fraser River and walkways. The food was very good, especially the lamb. Portions were nice - not too large, but certainly enough... More

Taverna Greka has only improved now over the years. The good is better than before. Lamb is awesome so is the moussaka. House wine is delish. Keep up the great work!

Taverna Greka has been in New Westminster for many, many years, run by the same family. The restaurant has been remodelled from years past. The setting you can't beat, looking out over the river and bridges. The service is always good, the food is always delicious!! I highly recommend this restaurant.
