Cuisine: Greek, Tapas/Small Plates
Price Point: Mains from $15 - $30
Ranked: #8 of 11 restaurants in Vancouver

Serving authentic Greek plates straight from the family recipe book, Anatoli Souvlaki is filling rumbling tummies all over North Vancouver.

It's a cosy eatery that's reminiscent of all the comforts at home. Forget contemporary furnishings; here old-school wooden chairs have patterned cushions that wouldn't be out of place at an antique shop. That, coupled with low ceilings, hanging guitars an abundance of paintings, it's an informal spot to relax after a long day.

Refresh the palette with some of those clean Greek flavours, like the tzatziki with cool cucumber, grilled octopus with a tangy caper dressing and grilled halloumi with tomato and mint. The mains are feasts within themselves. The rabbit styfado comes with fries and a Greek salad, the country lamb is tender as can be and the variety of skewers on offer are enough to make you drool. And then there's the classic moussaka which comes in beef and veggie form.

Then embrace the laid-back Greek lifestyle with a vibrant cocktail. Their claim to fame is that they serve 'the best sangria in North Vancouver'; go and see for yourself. If it's a school night, feel free to justify it as 'research'. We won't tell a soul.

Reviews

It was a cold and dreary night. As we turned the corner, “Anatoli Souvlaki” brilliantly lit up in the night sky. Upon entering the villa, warmth and happiness filled the air. We were immediately welcomed with a smile, saw the chefs in action, confirmed our reservation, and were graciously offered a very cozy table in the middle of the quaint and beautifully rustic atmosphere, whereby the sounds of Greece played soothingly in the background. There were a few others as well, pleasantly enjoying their meals with smiles and laughter. From that moment on the service from everyone was excellent and we felt like family!

Most items were delicious and very filling! We began by trying for the first time a Greek specialty, Avgolemeno. It was quite soothing with a nice burst of lemon zest. We then shared the Spanakopita...yummy...the pastry was nice and fluffy with just the right amount of spinach filling. The Calamari was lightly battered and tasted wonderful with the accompanied Tzatziki. Now onto the Lamb entrees, served with rice, potatoes, Greek salad with Dondoni Feta from Greece...fantastic! Both the Pidakia and Country Lamb (melted off the bone) was perfect and went down nicely with a couple pints of the House Lager! Large portions and flavourful sides. Our only complaint was the Pita...it was slightly over toasted and thin...we prefer buttery, light and fluffy.

It was our first visit and we will definitely be back! Although dining with a discount, never were we treated any different, in fact we didn’t even show the certificate, the staff never even mentioned it, just kindly provided 50% off the meal. A great surrounding to enjoy a large familial dining experience with caring staff and delicious eats! Upon return we must enjoy the Saganaki, Moussaka, and Octopothi...all looked mouth watering and delightful!

We ordered the avgelemeno soup and the server divided the soup into two bowls without us having to ask. Everything on the Messe platter was delicious. The lamb chops were the highlight. They were perfectly seasoned and grilled. We will be back !
