This is the second time we have eaten at the Wandering Greek Oven when passing through Castlegar. On both occasions the food was very good. This time both my wife and I had the souvlaki which was very tasty. The serving size was generous. Highly recommend this small downtown restaurant.

Found there are very few restaurants open downtown midweek/lunch. Service was good. Varied menu. We shared a Spanakopita lunch with Greek Salad and fries. Healthy portion. Tasty. Good value.

Small, but inviting. Good location. Nice decor. Staff very enthusiastic and friendly, which makes for a happy and satisfying experience. Good selection of food, prepared in a timely manner. Definitely suitable for family dining. Calamari particularly well done -- not rubbery! Tasty souvlaki and fresh salads. Recommended.

We stopped for lunch on the road and were very pleased to have found this restaurant. We had Hester Creek wine, which was nice as we had been to that winery the day before, and the menu was good. The food tasted great and we sat outside on their pleasant patio. The server was attentive and we felt welcomed and... More

If you find yourself in Castlgar and you enjoy Mediterranean fare, this restaurant is worth finding. The service is friendly, and the menu has many traditional Greek dishes. The chicken souvlaki, Greek salad, and the Sautéed Prawn dishes are excellent. Definitely worth the visit.

This is some of the best Greek food ever, and we've tried many. Authentic, casual and tremendous value. If you like Greek food or just good food, don't skip the location.

We went early in the day to take a look at the menu ... we were not told that reservations were needed and when we went back at dinner time, they remembered us but there was no table available. We went for a 1/2 hour walk and when we returned they simply took off a Reserved sign from one of... More

We had a great meal here with friends. Service was fast & attentive. Selection is good. My husband and Girl friends husband looked over the menu for a while before deciding. Brenda & I already knew what we were ordering before we arrived! They have the best lamb in town! Delicious! Our husbands were both pleased with their choices. I... More
