A great thing about Greek food is that it varies so widely in terms of price range and quality, from super affordable food-truck style meals, to gourmet affairs. Vancouver has a number of really great Greek and Mediterranean food restaurants and here are four particularly good ones.
The Greek by Anatoli - 1043 Mainland Street
The food here is exceptionally good, and it is worth the hype. The grilled mushrooms are particularly delicious, and the chicken is always cooked to perfection. The lamb, of course, is the star of the show here, and if you go on Monday they’ve got a deal on bottles of wine.
Scoozis - 445 Howe Street
Scoozis is a breakfast, brunch, and dinner place that has both Greek and Italian food. They have very good pasta, and the lasagne is really good and comes in big portions. It opens at 7am, and they serve delicious breakfast pizzas.
Takis Taverna - 1106 Davie Street
Takis has super good calamari that is light and fresh. Their portions are generally really big, and the lamb platter is a must-have.

Stepho’s Souvlaki Greek Taverna - 1124 Davie Street
Nearby, also on Davie, is Stepho’s, which is extremely popular and almost always seems to have a line winding outside. The service is quick, the food is delicious, and, while it isn’t as cheap as it used to be, the prices are still totally affordable.
