Mom & Pop Shop okay for breakfast
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 10:15pm [Dine in]

We've been for breakfast and enjoyed a averagely tasty bacon and egg breakfast. Seemed like homemade toast, which was a nice touch. Obviously family run by some nice folks. They were really nice to my 3 year old. Not fancy; honest.

For Beer & a game
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 10:11pm [Dine in]

This is the spot to go watch the game with your loud friends over several pints. Expect a sticky table and party atmosphere. Don't go looking to be impressed with the food. Don't take your family.

A good standard
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 10:01pm [Dine in]

We used to live around the corner from here and ate here quite regularly. The food (usually one lamb and one eggplant) is very tasty and is the standard by which I judge other greek places. A little greasy, but fully flavourful.

It's got a patio and beer, which is a rarity on that end of the drive.

Some management policies are stingy e.g. only 2 pita breads included for free when 3 $8 dips (which all "came" with pita bread) were ordered.

Solid little spot
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 9:54pm [Dine in]

We're always on the look out for a good greek restaurant, and this one's pretty solid. Great tzatziki. Hubby thought the lamb was good, too. My halibut was very delicious and healthy tasting, though it didn't have the heavy greek flavours that I was kind of hoping for. We will definately go back.

Very good place
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 9:49pm [Dine in]

Delicious food - nice potatos, saganaki, lamb & halibut with tomato sauce. Good service and a really cute & cozy dining room with greek style decorations that are not too over the top. Would recommend it entertaining family of friends.

Perfect date spot
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 9:38pm [Dine in]

There is time to have a good conversation between courses, you get to share plates, the atmosphere is trendy, and you don't leave feeling like a stuffed pig, so I think this is the perfect special date place.

We took our 3 year old, which I know is a faux pas, but we don't have a baby sitter. Instead of snears, the hostess and server were falling all over themselves to make her comfortable. They made off-menu suggestions for her immediately without us asking, which she really enjoyed.

The food was great. Loved the squash soups and short ribs. The portions are small, but your supposed to enjoy a few courses and share plates. if you can afford to do this, and have good company along, you will enjoy your dinner immensely. This is the point of the tapas concept and trendy atmosphere.

Even though it's not competing on quantity portions, as many are in the neighbourhood, I hope it will be very successful into the future.

Love it!

Best carrot soup ever; awesome pacific chowder; fresh and interesting salads; delicious fondue combinations. This place is an excellent spot for a fresh and healthy (okay, not if you have fondue) meal at any time of the day.

Minoas Greek Taverna3823 Kingsway, Burnaby
Kinda sad experience
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 6:55pm [Dine in]

This restaurant is in a great converted house... neat atmosphere and perfect for a Greek family restaurant. The server was friendly and treated my 3 year old daughter well.

The only problem... the food was kinda gross. I have eaten lots of greek food at different restaurants from classy to fast food and I never considered that lemon, oregano, garlic and all the other greek flavours could be done wrong.

My eggplant dish was okay, but the greek salad was cheap and the cauliflower in butter sauce was very overcooked and really quite awful. The roast potatoes weren't anything special, and that's just a shame because what could be better than a good greek roast potato?

I always leave greek restaurants very sarisfied, but not so much this time - just trying to get that taste of overcooked cauliflower out of my mouth.

If you want good greek, I'd go elsewhere.

Thai House Restaurant116 W Esplanade, North Vancouver
Weird
Submitted Tuesday, March 25, 2008 - 6:44pm [Dine in]

I was so excited moving to the north shore to see we would be living near a Thai House. I LOVE the Thai House on Robson St; it has truly excellent food and the one in Metrotown is delish, too.

I've been to the NV location 3 times for dinner and it doesn't seem like the same restaurant as the 2 above. The food seems greasy and not as fresh. 3 times the Pad Thai has been gross... noodles with icky red sauce and few other toppings or additions (unlike the restaurants other loactions.) The atmosphere is weird - looks like it should be a steakhouse. These service is fast and otherwise not memorable.

Bartender/ Owner/ Server waiting to impress
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 10:36am [Dine in]

I read a previous review and was surprised at how closely it reflected our thoughts on the place. The Bartender/ Owner/ server basically did his job, but wasn't that attentive. Other than a couple of folks at the bar we were the only people in the place. It seeme like the guy has been trying really hard to get a classy lounge together for his friends... and if they were there we might have seen it come together. The food was good, but trying so hard to be gourmet and fancy that some of the the freshness was lost... If I was younger and there on a packed night, I might be impressed. Kudos to the ownere, though, having your own restaurant is a lot of hard work.

Tantra Lounge & Grill123 Carrie Cates Court, North Vancouver
Beautiful location, and that's about it
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 10:25am [Dine in]

I kind of wonder how this place is still open. Wen we went, the service was adequate, overlooking the ocean was beautiful, but the food just could not make up for it. I had a stir fry and my friend had pasta. i'm not sure which was worse, but whichever one was, was likely the worst meal ever served in a restaurant. Totally overcooked, just plain gross. would have been wiser to eat anywhere else in the Quay. I haven't ate at McDonald's in over 12 years, but if Tantra and McDonald's were the only 2 restaurants at the Quay, I'd pick McDonalds. Just yucky. Can't imagine serving this food to anyone... Honestly can't recall ever eating a restaurant meal that comes even close to the level of dissapointment we experienced here. We sent both meals back but didn't dare try anything else.

Great place to take (older) family
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 10:15am [Dine in]

In our family, there sometimes seems to be a pretty big gap between what the different generations want to eat. When we're taking out people between 50-70 that seem a little wary of ethnic/ west-coast healhty, this is where we end up. Everyone gets to eat something of good quality and no one gets scared off because the french fries, b urgers and battered fish are recognizable to everyone. Later you can all look around the Quay. Not a place for a hot date, and though they have a kids menu, the servers are likely to want to move your stroller and will not be fauning over your kids. Someone I know travels a great distance to eat their shepherd's pie, but I've never tried it.

El Nopalito Mexican Restaurant149 3rd Street West, North Vancouver
One of our regular spots
Submitted Sunday, June 17, 2007 - 10:00am [Dine in]

We recently moved to the north shore and since have made this a regular spot. The food is consistently great and they are always very friendly to our 2 year old. As a Mexican food fan, I know it's tough to find a decent Mexican place in the lower mainland. We've been happy to keep going back here. Family-run restauirant type service.
