After a very long travel day, we wanted some food not too heavey, but something warm. Had soups and salad here, The soups came to the table extremely hot and very flavourful with tons of fresh herbs flavouring them. They were accompanied by a lovely bowl of toasted bread. We ordered a Takis special salad and it had everything imaginable... More

This place was great! My husband and I love Greek food, and this place didn't disappoint. They had a few dishes that aren't overly common, such as the Halmoui cheese, so that was nice to try at a restaurant (vs what we find at the supermarket). The saganaki was awesome, and all the mains we had were fantastic. The staff... More

If greek food is what you're looking for, then this is the right place! Flavor, place, feeling and people just makes you feel great in Greece. I ordered the grilled calamari and the lamb, they were just delicious and perfectly prepared.

This restaurant is on the same block as another well known Greek establishment that is always lined up, yet this place is much better in my opinion. As such, it kind of acts as overflow for the other spot a few steps away. I have always chosen to eat here rather than line up for food that is similar or... More

We were going to another greek/mediterreanian spot a few doors down but we were told by our Bed and Breakfast hosts that we should try this because it's much better. It's a little bit pricier but the food is good. Each one in the family enjoyed. We got there close to closing time but they still gave very good service.

The roasted lamb and chicken souvlaki were delicious. It is a bit dark in the restaurant and there tends to only be 1 server on during the lunch hour but they do their best to have you in and out quickly.

Referred here by Sunset Inn and Suites after a long day of sightseeing. The food was plentiful, delicious and the beer was cold! Sat by the open window and enjoyed watching hinges the world go by!

Thought we would pop in and give them a try. No regrets. Ordered the Calamari special. Many restaurants over cook calamari and it can be dry and hard, our order was done perfectly. Also ordered the Chicken Souvlakia. Portions were generous and chicken was tender. Our waitress, Tereza, was very attentive, pleasant and contemplated our needs which made the meal... More

This is a quaint, family run Greek restaurant - very likely the best Vancouver has to offer - not ostentatious, exceptional friendly service, not too big and right off the street in Davie village ... Authentic Greek cuisine is well prepared and varied, portions are very reasonable, beverage selection is great, too! Their motto: ''This place was created to alleviate... More

Staying in Davie Village

Neighborhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
