Greek
WHO ARE WE?
We’re the second generation of two Greek families that came to Canada to open some of Vancouver’s longest running restaurants.

Now, we’re taking everything we’ve learned from them to offer a brand new dining experience.

WHAT ARE WE ABOUT?
Loula’s is the Greek nostalgia of our upbringing infused with modern dining trends that have intrigued us. The atmosphere and cuisine are an homage to our namesake, a woman dear to our hearts who always leaves you in good spirits with a full stomach. Expect that overwhelmingly authentic Greek experience when you step through our doors—along with a few other things you won’t expect. You’ll just have to trust us.

WHERE ARE WE?
We’re located in the heart of Commercial drive, a spot we feel quite at home in. If you know anything about The Drive, you know it’s warm, vivacious and a little kooky.

Just like Loula.

    My daughter and I went for dinner at loula's to celebrate her birthday. We were seated right away and were brought water within minutes. We started with the hummus and pita and I had an IPA. The hummus is outstanding! We then had the saganaki (fried Greek cheese) which my daughter had never had, it was delicious! For our main dish we had spanakopita (spinach pie) and I have to say it's the best spanakopita I've ever had!!! I then ordered the orange cake for my daughter (it was her birthday after all) and she said it was amazing! Our server was friendly, polite, personable and attentive in all the right ways! An excellent night out!!!

    The food was fantastic – playfully elevated Greek dishes, with thoughtfully paired wines and interesting cocktails. The room is cozy and elegant, and the staff were incredibly friendly and attentive. And, in a nice change of pace for Vancouver restaurants, the music was well-curated and actually added to the ambiance.

    Lovely experience as always. Our server was awesome, very attentive and friendly. The prawns were a little disappointing (didn’t really taste of much), and would have appreciated more fruit on the saganaki. The cheesecake was fabulous though, as were the cocktails.

    I went Loula with a friend Feb5, 2024. Unfortunately, we met a server who had only one table before we came, after us there were two more tables and she brought them food sooner than us. we waited 45 minutes for our food and she forgot about the salad. When we asked why it took so long (and the other tables that came after us had already brought food the same as we ordered), she blamed the kitchen. Also, I was not born in Canada, I'm an immigrant and I have an accent - maybe for her immigrants are second class people, because I can't find a reason why she served other guests faster. I also saw another server quickly serving his tables. No matter how it sounds, but I also work in a restaurant in the kitchen and know how it is all done from the inside. therefore, the conclusion: the food is very very tasty, the environment is very nice, everywhere is clean. Just when you are going to visit Loula, just ask another server - not Savana

    We went to celebrate an anniversary and I requested a nice table but unfortunately we got big one and it was by the door that made us feel cold every time the door opened. By overall the food was wonderful. I miss Greece and it’s remind me about good times there! Cocktail was nice as well ! We will probably back again

    Customer service was bad. Our server asked to pack my meal before I was even done eating and she came by to ask if we wanted anything else with the bill already printed. I did not feel welcome at all and that ruined my night. I don't want to label anything but my friend and I were the only POC there at that time.... so it did make us wonder if we were being targeted or if the server was just bad at customer service. As we were walking out, I saw her whispering to her coworker and laughing...

    The music was loud for the size of the restaurant and for the amount of people present. It felt more of a supper club ambiance. Dial the music down. The cocktail drinks were really good and well priced. I found the main plates and mezedes very authentic and well seasoned. The Greek potatoes were well seasoned and amazing. The broccolini was undercooked. I would split the stem in half lengthwise so that it is not as raw and easier to eat . Would come back again!

    The food is always absolutely amazing at loluas but the service from our server wasn’t the greatest, felt like she was rude and not the best experience from her overall. Some of the other staff did an excellent job with us and that made up for the experience overall. Wish the tip was going to a different server instead.

    Cocktails were lovely, food was WONDERFUL. Three of us shared the zucchini chips, calamari, feta and eggplant dip, potatoes, and lamb skewers. It was a lot of amazing food. Everything went well together. Our server was lovely and explained everything possible about the food and drinks, which makes it more of an experience. Decor and design is perfect. Love your restaurant, have been before and will return, thank you.

    Everything was great , food, music, ambiance other than the limited time we had. We were late for 15m since we couldn’t find a parking spot and when we got there they told us we have 1 hour 15m. We usually get a bottle of wine but we had to get a glass due to limited time ! we wanted to try a bunch of appies and we felt very rushed and after 1 hour 10m our bill was in front of us . This was the only downside :)
