Since we love Greek cuisine we were looking forward to trying something new. As it turned out we should have stuck with our old favourites. Other than the wine and the chicken in the chicken slouvaki everything else was below standard or just plain bad. Pita bread, very bad. A good half of our meal consisted of Greek salad which was composed of big chunks of cucumbers and tomatoes. Its great if you like cucumbers. And it wasn't a true Greek salad. The potato was half cooked and tasteless. My wife's domatis tasted of vinegar and the meat looked grey. The rice was below average and tasteless. Our evening at Felico's was a disappointing end to our week. I got the feeling that ownership were going cheap on the ingredients, judging by the unusual size and quality of the salad. On a more positive note our waiter did his best to please.

We ordered the Felico's Platter. It comes with Greek salad, pita bread, hummus, shrimp cocktail, crab/shrimp cakes, lamb, grilled chicken, calamari, mint sauce, tzatziki sauce, marinara sauce, rice, baked potato, string beans, and carrots. I suggest you eat the calamari right away while it's still tender and warm. The grilled chicken is usually the weakest part of the dish because it's overcooked. We just save it for lunch the next day. The Felico's Platter is a great value for less than $50 for two people.

If you visit on a Saturday, there's often belly dancing at 8 pm. If you don't like the loud music, you can visit earlier or on a different day.

The service is relatively consistent and the dining room is lovely. (There are a few spots by the windows that are quite drafty in the winter.) This is one of the few moderately-priced, western-style restaurants in the area that still uses tablecloths, which makes the dining room feel more upscale.

We attended Felico's Restaurant to celebrate the highschool graduation of our son with a party of 12 people. We requested the 'Dinner Party 2' set menu which was wonderful! We were given a set menu with about 5 entree choices including grilled salmon, slow cooked lamb, sauteed seafood, new york steak or baked chicken breast - all of which were amazing! We also asked for vegetarian options and 3 were given - primavera linguini, vegetable plate or spanakopita. Before the entrees there were lovely appetizers included - first pita with homous and satziki -wow! Then the kalamaria arrived - so good! And finally the choice of salads (Greek or Caesar) or soup which was seafood chowder. All three options were tried by our group and all were delicious! We were afraid of being too full for our main course and wanted to hold back from eating all the appetizers, but we did anyway!
The main courses were all amazing! A few of us had to take some of the food home as we couldn't finish, but that was a nice treat for the next day.
The final lovely part of this meal was the belly dancer! She came over and gently tried to entice us to dance with her. Our guest of honour (the graduate) agreed to dance a little with her and we all had fun watching. A real highlight!
We would definitely go here again!

Approximately 25 of us sat in a private area for a celebratory dinner. The meal was preset where several courses were shared between 2 people: hummus and pita, iced shrimp, Greek salad (Caesar salad substitute if requested), fried cheese (yum), stuffed prawns, main platter included calamari, chicken, lamb, and each person got a plate with rice, potato and veggies and then a dessert plate. The service was good and the food delicious.

After running around Vancouver for a week we needed a change of pace. The land of great seafood and Chinese cuisine was wearing my buddy down. I am a SEE-food EATer. If I SEE it..I EAT it. He is not into pork, fish, tomatoes, mushrooms...don't like Dim Sum, PHO, Sushi, may eat vegetarian...you know the type right? LOL!

Was going to go Korean but it was packed! So...off to Felicos. A Greek resto in Richmond! Go figure! Gotta Go!!!!

The place was not busy. Let's say around 25% capacity - but it was Monday night - me thinks.

We ordered the fixed menu with steak, salad, and dessert. The steak was ok...nothing to write about in great lengths. It was supposed to be medium but I got spots of rare to well done - probably the steak was frozen at some time. The rub could use a bit more salt as it was a bit bland for me. Dessert was tiramisu - nothing to rage about.

All in all, an OK meal and my bud got a chunk of steak that he was craving all week! OPA!

Cheers!
