Branas Mediterranian Grill serves Italian and Greek cusine. Open for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Waterfront patio facing marina.
I brought the GF here on Valentines Day for dinner. Food arrived after 10 minutes of wait but the food was delicious! Chicken was juicy and the seafood was very fresh. The place isn't too bad but a bit too cramp. It's located in a very romantic area. Service was good, food was very delicious and the price was solid. We'll be coming back for more.
Went for a walk with my girlfried on a cool sunny October weekend. This is in the false creek area which is often quite pricey. The menu pricing was very reasonable as I checked out the menu as we walked by. It was getting a bit cold and I kept thinking about the borsch they had on their sign.
The inside is very nice with nearly no patrons. There was only one other table of four and us two in the restaurant. Everbody was walking by without stopping. I asked about the borsch and was told that it was over. Not sure if that meant they were out of it or if they only served it during brunch hours. We ordered the wild mushroom soup. We only wanted a small snack and were planning to share the soup.
When the soupd came it was a really large bowl. I think when they found out that two of us were going to share it they made it a larger serving. They incuded some fresh made bread topped with garlic and rock salt. The soup was excellent and jammed full of pureed mushrooms. It was all very nice and quite a bit more than I expected. The bill was just over $7 before tip.
The only issue was the food was a bit slow coming out but I think that was due to them makeing the unexpected bread. I would totally go to this place again and would look forward to eating a full meal there. With the only reveiw I think this place is a hidden gem
Found this place by mistake, but we are sure glad we did! We have been back many times and enjoy bringing our friends, especially those from out of town who really appreciate the amazing view the restaurant has. I have tried many of the dishes and everything has been delicious. Some of my personal favorites are the Kefthedes, Cream of Mushroom Soup, the burger and chicken souvlaki. Some of my husband's favorites are the Russian Pelmeny, stuffed fried olives and the pasta with clams. If you go on a Friday night, they have live music, it makes for a fun night out.
Simply great place! Food is amazing. Smoke salmon Benny for branch with homemade hollandaise sauce are the best. Seafood platter for two for dinner is my second choice, again super delicious. Great view on the docks is very romantic and cozy. Great selection of vine. I really enjoyed my time there with my fiancé. Service is very nice, warm and friendly. I would definitely come back and will recommend this place for my friends
I've been there twice now, once for dinner, and once for brunch, and there were some outstanding parts of each. The brunch they have was really fantastic, one of the best brunches I've had in a long time. Really great style to the foods, really tasty, and a good price. We ate out on the patio, which is a nice, quiet location overlooking the seawall, all the way to downtown. We had eaten dinner there a few nights before, and the ambiance of the restaurant was great, nice and cozy, great classic music playing, but the food wasn't very good, fairly generic, and not the best tasting.
I'd say, go there for brunch, because it's really fantastic, but only for dinner if it's an awesome, warm night and you're just looking for something simple.
Beautiful quaint restaurant next to the harbour in False Creek. Great food and prices. Very welcoming and cozy, plus an awesome view of downtown/Yaletown! Food is obviously "homemade" and fresh. Pretty good selection of wines and the music is perfectly suited to this little gem ( a lot of Frank Sinatra). Service is friendly and heplful. Could be a great place for a romantic dinner or with a group of friends.
Waited at the door for almost 5 minutes before anyone greeted us. One of the cooks had to get up from his seat in the dining room to get the lone server out of the kitchen. She pointed us in the direction of the table and we sat ourselves. She brought menus a few minutes later. It's a small restaurant of about 25 seats. It's cute and the view was nice. Loose Rock sugar in a bowl on the table kinda grossed me out... Sneezer anyone? Menu is mostly Greek with a few common "Mediterranean" dishes. I felt like the menu was a newer version of the old Greek/pizza/pasta/steak places. Prices are fair for the location. Zucchini keftedes were tasty though I'd prefer them more crispy. Bruschetta was a thick slice of french bread topped with pesto, a slice of a steak tomato, and giant piece of fresh mozza. Ordered some russian dumpling dish to share. I didn't like it at all. It was greasy and heavy and I was burping up the flavors all night long even though I only had two pieces. Would have had some dessert but the list was boring. I'd go back for drinks and the zucchini keftedes only.
Went here based on friends recommendation. Took my wife out and therefore didnt wanna spend too much. Food was 50/50, zucchini fritters absolutely bland, baked mushrooms were bland and terrible. Beef was nice but nothing special i.e. I could have cooked it at home myself. Great salad main of sultanas, wheat bread and onions. Whatever it was called. Didnt order wine coz wife brunch.
Ambience ok but nothing great (you look through the window into the vista). Service good but once again not superb or sexy.
