Always a welcome site, with the Fraser River - and river business as backdrop. Great menu, loaded plates, the best pita bread and tantalizing calamari appetizers. Even at dinner - on the return from the airport - portions that beg for a doggy-bag. Good service from long-time staff. a coming-and-going of patrons, even on a weekday.

We have been dining at the Taverna Greka for years and have always enjoyed the lovely atmosphere of the restaurant and especially the food. However, the other day we dined with friends for lunch but we were really disappointed with the quality and presentation of our meals. Two people ordered lamb souvlaki, one person ordered roast lamb and I ordered... More

We are concerned that your visit did not meet your expectations. To hear that our food was anything less than exceptional is unusual. Thank you for your time, and we hope you can give us another chance. More

I took my friend who is a person of colour visiting from out of the country to this restaurant. He arrived a few minutes earlier than me and I didn't notice anything unusual upon my arrival. During the course of dinner, he told me he felt something odd about the way one of the "older ladies" received him. He said... More

We are sorry to hear about your experience. We are a family owned and operated business and want everybody to feel welcomed when coming to Taverna Greka. In no way are we racist or want to be perceived that way. We have a very multicultural staff at Taverna Greka so to call us racist is untrue. If your friend would... More

We have been going here for many, many years and have never been disappointed. Yes the food sizes have been reduced but a very little, and the prices have not gone up very much over the last 10 years. Just sit and enjoy the views and the service plus the belly dancing on Friday and Saturday nights. I like so... More

Taverna Greka was our go to spot for lunch in New Westminster yesterday - the usual “early-birds” when we dine out for lunch - we arrived at the restaurant shortly after it opened at 11am. We received friendly, welcome greetings upon entering, and were shown to a window table, about mid-restaurant in location, so had very commanding upriver and downriver... More

My favourite restaurant in New Westminster. They serve mostly Greek food - I especially like their roast lamb. The servers were friendly and did not rush one. And their is a nice view of the Fraser River. The restaurant itself has an interesting layout and decor --- great for a romantic dinner (or lunch).

This had come well recommended by a colleague and our family was not disappointed. It has an old world feel to it that we really liked and we could sit by the window in full view of the Fraser River and walkways. The food was very good, especially the lamb. Portions were nice - not too large, but certainly enough... More
