We were staying near Davie Street and came upon Takis Taverna by chance. Lucky for us! It was the best Greek food I have had. The calamari was divine and so was my husband's souvlaki. The service was great and it was good value. Would totally recommend eating there

You may walk right past Taki's on your way to Stepho's, a 'famous' greek restaurant on Davie Street. But if you know good food and great service, you'll stop at Taki's. I used to live in the West End of Vancouver, and Taki's was my favorite Greek restaurant. The food is fast and hot, delicious and huge servings! The service... More

Besides how great the food and service are, the best thing about this place is that there is usually no line up. Not sure why. We went for dinner at 5:30 on a Saturday night and got a table right away. Excellent service, excellent food. And, great value. Best kept secret of the West End!

We ate here twice and found the service friendly and the food tasty. Convenient walking distance from our hotel. Not the best Greek food we've ever had, but we can recommend the braised lamb and the spaatopita.

After a very long travel day, we wanted some food not too heavey, but something warm. Had soups and salad here, The soups came to the table extremely hot and very flavourful with tons of fresh herbs flavouring them. They were accompanied by a lovely bowl of toasted bread. We ordered a Takis special salad and it had everything imaginable... More

This place was great! My husband and I love Greek food, and this place didn't disappoint. They had a few dishes that aren't overly common, such as the Halmoui cheese, so that was nice to try at a restaurant (vs what we find at the supermarket). The saganaki was awesome, and all the mains we had were fantastic. The staff... More

If greek food is what you're looking for, then this is the right place! Flavor, place, feeling and people just makes you feel great in Greece. I ordered the grilled calamari and the lamb, they were just delicious and perfectly prepared.

This restaurant is on the same block as another well known Greek establishment that is always lined up, yet this place is much better in my opinion. As such, it kind of acts as overflow for the other spot a few steps away. I have always chosen to eat here rather than line up for food that is similar or... More

We were going to another greek/mediterreanian spot a few doors down but we were told by our Bed and Breakfast hosts that we should try this because it's much better. It's a little bit pricier but the food is good. Each one in the family enjoyed. We got there close to closing time but they still gave very good service.

Neighbourhood Profile
Davie Village
Davie Village is the vital LGBTQ heart of Vancouver. It is the only like area in the world to have a permanent four-way rainbow crosswalk, to symbolise the city's solidarity with many of the businesses, ranging from bars to bookstores, that keep the area vibrant. By day, it is a people-watching stop, with fantastic boutique cafes, but at night is when it really shines, humming with neon lights and nightclub music inside many of the hip and trendy bars and dance halls. The area is diverse and welcoming, and its supportive community makes for a tight-knit group of independent and creative shops.
