We arrived here to be greeted by a pretty grumpy, not very friendly waitress. it felt like she'd been there too long and lost any enthusiasm for the job. The food when it came was tasty but the meals were just too big! The main course was enough for about 3 people!! A good place to grab a quick meal... More

I've eaten here several times over the past years and each time I have thoroughly enjoyed my food and their friendly service. I still haven't tried their famous pizza, which I will do the next trip. Great family owned Greek restaurant in Kitsilano, reasonably priced menu and wines.

Our good friend from Victoria suggested the Simpatico for lunch. We were greeted by a very charming server by the name of Courteney who seated us in a very comfortable table next to the wndow facing 4th Avenue. Lunch was delicious and the best part was that the cost was under $50 for a party of 3.

Simpatico has been around for many years. My future wife and I went there for the first time in December of 1972 (though it was under different management then). While we had been back a few times after that initial visit, it didn’t become one of our standard restaurants for Mediterranean food. Maria’s Taverna, one block over, took that spot.... More

Had a wonderful business dinner at Simpatico. Didn't have a chance to try their pizza yet, but have heard it's amazing. Excellent service and very fair prices make this spot a great choice for family Greek food. Large seating space so you can also have large parties and usually easy to get a seat.

I am surprised at the less than stellar reviews. This is a great place and the portions very generous and all the staff very welcoming. Of I could afford to. I would eat there everyday.

Went back to Simpatico recently and enjoyed a warm friendly meal with friends. Clean, comfortable, fresh, reasonable, what more do you want. Ribs terrific, mousaka marvellous, although they've changed to an individual dish type instead of the big slab, salads fresh, calamari tasty and done right. Come every now and then since 1972 and not much has changed, thank goodness.... More

Have visited a few times over the years with friends who insist on Sympatico as their place to go for Greek in Vancouver. So here we are again. Good service from their favorite waitress, dated interior, resonable pricing, clean washrooms, credit cards accepted. Ordered the lamb shank and the large and small Chicken Breast Souvlaki. The lamb was tasty and... More

I frequented this restaurant when it had atmosphere and truly wonderful food. There was a buzz...attentive service...owners always there ...engaging. NO MORE...attentive I sensed it within minutes sitting down. Food ordered was minus -2 ...on a scale 1-10. How can you screw up a Greek salad...no dressing ..one olive?? MOUSSAKA was greasy. Lamb was tired...before it even came to the... More

Staying in Kitsilano

Neighbourhood Profile
Kitsilano
Kitsilano is one of Vancouver's most transformative neighbourhoods. With a long history of coffee culture and poetry readings, its days of flower children and buskers may be long-gone, but not without leaving their mark on the number of organic restaurants and fair-trade cafes in the area. At the centre of Kitsilano ("Kits" for short) the almost idyllic expanse of Kits Beach offers the opportunity for a relaxed afternoon of beach volleyball or sunbathing. Along with the beachfront, nearby public pools and trendy street-beats have driven up the homeowners prices, making it a haven for stylish home goods stores, from design and furniture, to supplies and appliances. The multitude of both families and public spaces also make it a happening neighbourhood in the summer, when festivals and fairs take to Kits' streets.
