Got the chicken and lamb dish. The favor was outstanding. It was very much like being back in Israel. The appetizers were also really good.

We stopped here on the way to the Portland Airport for lunch and it was great! We had lamb kabobs, salad and rice and hummus and pita bread. Great value and when we are back in Vancouver, will will definitely stop again!

I ate here once last year and the food was decent so I brought my mom yesterday so she could try it. The waitress gave us lunch menus but before she got the chance to take our order, the cook came to our table. 1st thing he did was grab my mom's cheek because she was smiling and told her... More

Was looking for something else when I saw it was Mediterranean it sounded good. The lentil soup had good flavor. I ordered the chicken on humus and would order again. The staff is friendly. Over all good meal.

This is a spot that my beautiful mother-in-law meets friends at for Sunday lunch. We were in town and decided to go here. It's a casual place with very good food and good service! Thank you for a nice afternoon.

The food was not very good at all, and there servings were very small. The service was also lacking so once was more than enough for me.

Enjoyed some of our Greek favorites and were not disappointed. Dolmas were very good too. Friendly staff. Convenient location.

This review is for the 516 SE Chkalov Drive location, not the one Downtown Vancouver. The food and menu were so good, that next time I go, I am simply going to tell the chef to make me his favorite dish and bring it on. He came and pulled up a chair next to our table and talked us through... More

We stopped in for lunch and I must say that the service was very good. However, I felt that the food was bland. I haven't had a lot of Mediterranean food so I don't know if this was normal.
