This restaurant serves Greek fare which is really greek, not some touristy stuff that most try to pass off as authentic. We appreciate the hostess warning us about portion sizes being very large. A platter for2 can be shared very well by 3. Our party...More

We enjoyed a very nice evening with terrific grilled fish. Service was very helpful. Portions were very generous. Humus was homemade and delicious. I'd go back. Simple and good.

We went there on Jan 24 to try the Dine Out Vancouver $18 menu. My husband and I had the Avgolemono as appetizer. The soup was light but a little bit salty. As this is the first time we try this soup so not sure...More

Having been taken to Maria’s in October 2012 when I was on a business trip, I went back with my family now in August. I was not disappointed! The food was again excellent - the kleftiko (roast lamb) was as good as I remembered, and...More

Greek salad was not made fresh and was several days old. Old red onions with mashy tomatoes like it was boiled and soft cucumbers.

This small restaurant was jam packed. We both ordered chicken souvlaki and just wanted Greek salad with it. Also got homous and pita with one of the best homous we have tasted recently. Meal was great. A bit disappointed in the bean soup--needed more beans....More

We have been to Maria's Taverna many times over the years and keep coming back for the consistently good food and friendly service. Maria herself does all the cooking during the day, and her sons (2 waiters, 1 cook), waitresses, and other kitchen staff have...More

I know I look young for my age. But that does not mean that I don't pay for my meals nor that I don't deserve the same respect as other customers. Highly disappointed at the attitude of the presumed chubby male owner. He chatted up...More

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
