Went back for a second time. Service was slow & food not the greatest. Free parking front & rear. Needs a update on food, service & interior..

This place has American, Italian, Greek, and Middle Eastern; they're all delicious. The menu is gigantic, you could spend an afternoon just reading. I am told by a close friend that the owner makes frequent trips to Greece and every time he comes back the menu gets bigger.

This is the place to go when your hungry. They also have one of the largest menus I've ever seen. Menu has food for everyone. Pizza and Greek are the main things but burgers are also on menu. What ever you order your going to be full when you leave. Quality is also very good.

If your either of the above this is the place for you. It usually takes a while to get your meal (usually very busy), but well worth the wait.

Rainbow Pizza is really a Greek diner with much more that Pizzas to choose from. The plates are enormous, the salads fresh and the flavours quite distinctive. Service is very friendly and attentive.

A few years ago I took my kids at rainbow pizza Halfmoon bay to pick up something to munch on while watching the sunset.

Let's start with the kitchen area, it's filthy. You can see it through the front to area. The,tables are sticky and the restaurant smells. I've eaten here twice and my stomach as regretted both times. To put it kindly, if you're looking for a stomach cleanse, this is the place.

This place is awesome!! Not fancy by any means, but the food is delicious. Hubby and I have been here many times and have never been disappointed. My husband likes the pizza and my favorite is moussaka. I've eaten other dishes too and all yummy but I always go back to my favorite. One slice of pizza is a meal... More
