Kostas Taverna1133 Mount Seymour Road, North Vancouver
A Hidden Jewel in Parkgate
Submitted Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 3:39pm [Dine in]

This family-run fixture in Parkgate Village is worth indulging in. The Taverna Platter has all the standard Greek items; lamb, calamari, greek salad, pita (warm toasted), dolmathes and a few more that I wouldn't normally order but love to try. Meals can be on the greasy side due to the deep frying of some items, but lighter choices are an option. Homemade tzatziki with lots of garlic is a highlight. Wines from Greece round out the menu. I've never had desert here, the dinner protions are huge and i can never save room its so delicious. Prices are good. The service will surpass your expectations. The ambiance is romantic Greek, with candles and traditional music. I've never been irritated by loud children here, a great place for two. A reno last year updated this cute hideaway. Opa!

Menu Reno Needed
Submitted Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 3:26pm [Dine in]

I agree they need a menu redo. Someone please show this site to mgmt! The beer is absolutely great and the squid is the reason I still eat there, but dinner is a perpetual disappointment. The wok dishes are lacking. The chef's creation menu they offer changes frequently, but everytime i order from it i get a tiny portion for an entree. Also, it is family friendly, so if you don't like rugrats (the screaming kind) don't go until after 8. Families should feel at home earlier than that. Service is standard, with the occasional bright star of a server, and the odd dud.

White Spot333 Brooksbank Ave, #1100, North Vancouver
Great classic food, if you can wait
Submitted Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 3:17pm [Dine in]

I love White Spot, both classic Triple O burgers and new modern menu items like the teriyaki bowl. But I only go when I have no other plans following dinner, as it takes a while. There are often lineups out the door at this location! Once your server (eventually) gets your drinks to you and takes your order the food does arrive promptly, and steaming hot. then the wait begins again for the server to bring the bill or ask about desert. Service has been improving slowly, but I would never count on a quick bite here.

Seafood the way it should be
Submitted Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 3:11pm [Dine in]

Fresh! If you want honest fresh fish, shop here. The fish and chips may be a it greasy, but they're delicious that way and shouldn't change. A great source for seafood of all varieties, well worth stopping in for dinner inspiration at good prices.

Raven Pub, The1052 Deep Cove Road, North Vancouver
Standard Pub - Above Average Wings
Submitted Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 3:06pm [Dine in]

As the previous reveiwer mentioned, the wings here are much better than most other pubs. They seem to use better qulaity chicken, the wings are a bit bigger and not all fatty. Over the years prices have gone up and the beer selection has gone down, but if you live nearby its worth going on wing night. Avoid the nights with the live band/singer guy that looks like the lead singer from Nickelback. And don't bother with anthing except dinner and drinks, the brunch was lacking in flavour and served less than hot. A positive - the chicken souvlaki pizza is a creative, flavourful version of a classic. I often order it as takeout, with their great caesar salad.

Best breakfast- and Great Dinner
Submitted Thursday, January 11, 2007 - 1:49pm [Dine in]

I love this cozy bistro in all seasons. In the summer the patio is a great place to people watch and sip delicious margaritas with real fruit. In the winter a lazy Sunday morning is best spent enjoying the view of deep Cove while savouring the absolutely delicious "Timo's Benny" with wonderful smoked wild salmon. I've tried most of the menu, and the Angry Roasted Chicken is my favourite. The Juicy, spicy, vibrant tasting chicken with seasonal roasted vegetables will satisfy a large appetite. Go for a walk around the Cove after dinner to complete a great experience.
