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

Taverna Greka has only improved now over the years. The good is better than before. Lamb is awesome so is the moussaka. House wine is delish. Keep up the great work!

I learned that we should have made a reservation as it was super busy. The owner managed to squeeze us in and gave... More

Taverna Greka has been in New Westminster for many, many years, run by the same family. The restaurant has been remodelled from years past. The setting you can't beat, looking out over the river and bridges. The service is always good, the food is always delicious!! I highly recommend this restaurant.

Have lived in New Westminster many years and never tried this popular restaurant. Four of us went for dinner and may I recommend going before sunset to check out the view. The restaurant looks out over the newly created park on the Quay. You can see the four bridges from the dining room and sometimes the conversation is interrupted by... More
