This restaurant is really unique! everything is kept so simple except food. Food is fantastic, its incdredibly tastefull and very good quality. Prices are also very reasonable, for chicken souvlaki, with rice, potato's and salad its 15.95 (dinner price, on lunch its even cheaper). I absolutely recommend this place while staying in Vancouver! Restaurant opens in lunch and dinner hours... More

This place was near our condo, and we were glad to try it out. The chef owns it. The lamb was outstanding. Nothing fancy and not a lot of tables, but good authentic food at good prices.

We went to this place for a late dinner. Wasn't very full which initially concerned us. We ordered a half order of calamari. It was okay but not the greatest. I ordered the chicken souvlaki and my wife had the lamb shank. The greek salads that came with the meal were awesome. They were flooded with dressing. They were filled... More

Time to order & we selected 3 appies, Kleftiko (8), Spanakopita ( 1 we cut in 4) and the Calamari (deep fried). Kleftiko were moist but bland, Spanakopita... More

It is our favourite Greek restaurant. Best to reserve as it is very small and gets full quickly on weekends. We weren't always lucky with the waiters but there has been a huge improvement lately. The food is delicious, the saganaki, especially the dolmades I HIGHLY recommend them, the quails, the calamari. ..... You won't be disappointed.

The garlic butter prawn and the saganaki was so delicious! Must try. The environment of the restaurant was also nice and the servers are very friendly.

A long establish local Greek food restaurant. Has the best lamb shoulder roast in town. Since relocated to its present location about five years ago, service and food quality has deteriorated. Overall, still a good value eat.

Every time I come to eat here I enjoy an outstanding dining experience. The sumptous fresh variety keeps me coming back for more. The fact that I have been coming since the 1990's and followed this establishment to its third location says it all. There is comfort in knowing what I am going to get; authentic consistent quality sumptious offerings.... More

I was visiting my sister in Vancouver and she wanted to go out for lunch to a Greek restaurant. She loves Greek food. We chose Kalamata Greek Taverna and I wish we hadn't. It was lunch time and the restaurant was quite busy, so we had high expectations. We shouldn't have. The amount of food we received was generous, but... More

Neighbourhood Profile
Shaughnessy
Residential neighbourhood to the ultra-wealthy, the gorgeous manor houses centred around The Crescent area are a fabled sight to behold. Shaughnessy is Vancouver's most verdant plotted neighbourhood, and its tree-lined streets, walking routes, bike trails, and charming public parks make for an ideal location to spend and afternoon communing with nature. Consequently, it is also the botanical centre of the city, featuring conservatories and an expansive Botanical Garden, taming and sculpting the wild into seasonal viewing areas and enchanting landscapes. Quiet, elegant Shaughnessy excels at providing the Three Gs: Gardens, Golfing, and Galleries.
