Stepho's Souvlaki Greek Taverna
This spot draws a diverse crowd seeking a lively escape. The Hellenic eatery recently expanded to support its continually growing clientele, but it is still packed at peak times. Richly painted walls, dark wood furniture and light fixtures set the stage for a loud and social meeting place. The environment is welcoming and the servers are outgoing. The portions, meanwhile, are large. The lamb and souvlaki platters overflow with roasted potatoes and rice, while the Greek salad is one of the city's best.
We made a reservation for 7pm but we arrived at 7:30. The server told us that the table would be reserved for us for 2 hours and since we were late half an hour, we would still have to be finished by 9pm. We said okay. We found out that they were seating us at a table for 6 even though we had 8 people. A few minutes later, he dropped by to ask if we were ready to order, we said not yet. A few friends arrived later and were still looking at the menu when the server came and asked again. He said he wanted us to quickly order cuz we had to finish dinner by 9pm. When we were almost finished dinner, another server drop by to ask if he could take away some plates, we said we were still eating. Then a friend saw that the server was still standing nearby looking at us, as if they really wanted us to finish off quick so that they could seat other people. I've had much better service at another Greek restaurant in Burnaby, which offers the same great food, if not better, at pretty much the same prices, as well as much better service. Needless to say, I'm not crazy about their food and definitely not satisfied of their service.
I used to live near the restaurant and eat out lots. They are great!! I have moved out and miss the food there lots. I have been looking for the one which can beet Stepho's for 3 years but I have not found one yet, maybe I cannot....
My wife and I heard from just about every local we met that if we were going to eat in Vancouver, we would be silly to NOT choose Stepho's....They were correct. We STUFFED 4 people including drinks for about $100 CANADIAN!!! The lamb shank could be eaten w/ a spoon.....
Fire ravaged this Kitsilano restaurant's original structure during the late 1990s. But like the fiery Phoenix, a better taverna rose
from its ashes. A mannequin garbed in traditional Greek attire greets guests outside. Inside, it is reminiscent of a ...
