Our favourite destination for calamari, pizza and lasagna. Had the $10.45 calamari lunch special. Generous portions of calamari stacked high and done to perfection. Comes with plenty of delicious Greek salad, rice, roasted potato and pita bread. Have had the pizza and lasagna on a number of occasions and never disappointed. If you are in the west end for lunch... More

We stumbled upon this restaurant while we were walking down Denman St on our way into the West End. It looked very inviting from the outside and it was packed with people which is always a good sign. We scored ourselves a cute little table outside on their little terrace. The menu was huge and had something for everyone. Being... More

This Greek restaurant has been around for decades and it's because of the pizza. We had two: the Greek special and #28, ham and fresh tomatoes. The wait was worth it: fresh and hot with an excellent crust. The place was busy on a Wed. night and judging by the amount of take-out going out the door, that's probably their... More

Calamari lunch failed to offer a hint of flavor, where was the garlic? Never had tzatziki that was so bland. Even the rice was way below any other Greek dining option. My wife's chicken was almost acceptable. I would not suggest spending money here, too many other good options on this street.

The food was good, but why on earth should it take forty minutes to get to our table? On a Wednesday night, with the restaurant half-full?

We found this restaurant quite close to our hotel and just walked over. While we were visitors the table next to us seemed to be regulars and known to the staff. One got the impression that people visited quite regularly. Food was quick to be served and staff were very pleasant.

Food: we shared the house special pizza - it came out hot and really tasty. Can't comment on the other food because that's all we had

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
A hodgepodge of landscapes, the West End combines verdant gardens and blocky modern architecture, with Victorian bits and Edwardian bobs in between. It is a paradise for takeout food, take-away coffee, and perhaps incongruously, some of Vancouver's most languid lines of beachfront. English Bay and Sunset Beach invite swimmers, strollers, and picnic-lovers to take in dusk settling over the water, or to jog along with the sunrise, offering breathtaking views at any time of day. The West End merges together so many looks and flavors probably because it functions a hub: its the leafy pit-stop between nightlife and entertainment venues along Davie Street, and the shopping paradise that is Robson Street, offering visitors beautiful parkland to rest on, and quick, easy food to re-fuel with in between ventures.
