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

Vancouver has a host of Greek restaurants, and in the downtown part of Vancouver there are many popular places. Takis Taverna is a hole in a wall in the Davie Village, and it's just the spot to go to for a no nonsense Greek meal. I got the chicken souvlaki. The portion is generous (the large is two skewers, but... More

Eating at Takis Taverna was like eating at a friends or relatives kitchen. It was busy the night we were there so we waited a while for service. The food was hot and very good. The only negative was a charge for extra sauce which amounted to an extra 4.00 for my wife and I. In all the places I've... More

Our vacation group of 6 went to Takis on recommendation of our hotel, Sunset Inn & Suites. This Greek Restaurant is a gem and should be visited by all. Not only was the food excellent but the friendliness and attentive wait staff was also excellent. Our server, Debbie, was so friendly and helpful. She made us feel like we were... More

We ate here on a TA recommendation and were not disappointed. The food is very traditional Greek and everything we ordered was quite good. The Lamb Shank and Dolmathakia were especially delicious. The Saganaki for a hot appetizer is also good. All in all a very good restaurant for Greek food in Vancouver.

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.
