Anatoli Souvlaki was opened by Helen & Thomas in the spring of 1984. They had a dream of combining the food of Greece with great service to add some Mediterranean style to the North Vancouver restaurant selection. They opened in the sleepy neighbourhood of lower Lonsdale and lived above the restaurant to ensure the quality and service. They were able to create a North Vancouver staple, a successful thriving restaurant based on faithful patrons and a reputation that has been passed through generations.

North Vancouver has quietly amassed an amazing collection of Greek restaurants--Anatoli is one of them. The location is amazing, and if it's Friday night its next to the Shipyards Night Market. A reservation is recommended, as is the lamb souvlaki.

Been a favourite for years. We've been coming to Anatoli's for as far back as I can remember. 30 years later, it still delivers good service and quality food.

We enjoyed the location, energy and food. We felt the prices were high for the souvlaki, especially with the upcharge for no potatoes or rice, with very little additional salad.

No complaints about the food and the service but it was so incredibly loud, we could not carry a conversation. We decided to eat quickly and head to a quieter place so we could catch up.

Food was just so so, I was expecting more. I would come back again for lunch , but it wasn't what I was expecting for a Birthday dinner - Lamb chops were tough and fatty, others enjoyed their meals but no one was raving about the food. Fun atmosphere and great location

Celebrated my birthday here again this year and it was fantastic as always. The server wasn't great to be honest and she forgot to punch in one of my friend's meals, but the owners took care of things and it was a great time overall. Fantastic food and the belly dancer is always a treat!

Food was ok. Our kalamari was oily. Lamb and chicken were good. Our service was horrible. Food and drinks kept going to wrong table. Waitress ignored us all night. Kept having to get other waitresses to bring us things such as napkins and refills. Nice place but wouldnt recommend based on service.

The Food was below par calamari should not be soggy. The portions were small for the price. The baklava was hard as a rock I had to cut it with a knife. The service was slow and also forgetful. I can understand the service if it was busy although there may have been maybe 10 people in there. I went due to the high reviews and I would not go back

Anatoli is one of the many jewels of the North Shore. Located right by the Seabus terminal, is a perfect place for a group of friends or for a romantic date. The food is superb and the service is impeccable. My favorite summer activity is to sip a Caesar on the patio watching the live around.

Phillip, our server, was very friendly and attentive and the Mezze platter was superb. One small complaint, however, was that we requested a table near the fire and we were stuck at a small table overlooking the washrooms. We were eventually moved to the window at the front which was a nice compromise. Thanks.

Very nice evening, the roast lamb dinner was excellent! They say slow cooked for 5 hours, it was very tender, fell off the bone. Service was fast, efficient and friendly.

There is an outdoor patio which is great in spring and summer. The souvlaki is delicious.

Great food, excellent service...we arrived at a busy time and it was very noisy...as the time wore on, the noise lessened as the crowd thinned. We were not deterred by the noise as we have eaten here before and always enjoy our meal.

I had gone to this restaurant for many years. It provides decent satisfactory middle-of-the road Greek. The pricing has gone up dramatically with Lower Lonsdale redevelopment. Wine: $9 for a glass of Boutari is ridiculous.

We went for Thanksgiving. There was a big private party. They were noisy and you couldn’t get near a bathroom. I wish that we knew that they were having a party when we booked. Also the apples were good but the moussaka was bland and tasteless

Fantastic service. Authentic. Great music and lower lonsdale scene. Great traditional Greek food. Need to get a little more creative with the menu to set them apart from other Greek restaurants. Need an interesting twist on a traditional dish then call it fusion. Change it up seasonally.

I recommend that a waiter ask a customer ordering a souflaki dinner how the meat should be cooked: rare, medium or well done. Although the taste was there, all three were overcooked and dry. The service was very attentive and friendly and our table inside was right by the window.

Everything is delicious. Try the lamb. The Greek salad is authentic with plenty of Feta. Do NOT sit in the section served by the extremely loud and rude waitress. She has short dark blonde hair with tattoos on her upper arms. She spilled water all over our table. We had to ask her to clean it up to which she replied, its only water. She was so upsetting that we had to switch sections
