Pasparos Taverna has been serving authentic home style Greek cuisine in North Vancouver since 1974.
I've tried them all and this is simply the best Greek in town. You feel as if you're in Greece as you sit inside their whitewashed atrium like dining area. The taramasalat is superb. The slow cooked lamb is excellent. Garlic prawns are excellent. I love to take people here for a special and very different meal. The prices are reasonable and the wait staff are always friendly. I try to avoid Fridats because of the belly dancer but the food is always reliable.
Decided to come here based on good reviews on this site and the fact that we live close by. Despite having a reservation we waited 15 minutes to get a table, and then another 15 minutes for a server to grace us with their presence. The place was very busy so we accepted that this is just the way things are on a Saturday night. Waited 15 minutes for our order to be taken, and then another 30 minutes for our meal to arrive. Unfortunately in the meantime our appetizers seem to have been forgotten, which was a little disappointing to say the least. The entree was pretty good, but we cannot say the same for the service which was totally non existent all evening. After another long wait, we had to demand the bill from another server as ours seemed to have disappeared. In conclusion, nice place, good food but appalling service and I can't say we will be back anytime soon.
Pasparos is the most incredible restaurant I have even been to anywhere. The food is amazing and the service makes you feel with the ambiance that you are in Greece. My favourite when we go are - the humous and pits, the grilled squid, the meat platter, and of course Pasparos Coolers and after dinner the Pasparos coffee. Hmm I think it is time to go again!
