Greek
Thomas Makris, from the Island of Skopelos, fell in love when he met Helen Babalos. They met at Orestes Greek restaurant in 1974, while on a Greek dancing tour of North America. Soon after their marriage, they had a vision to open a place like no other in Vancouver; a Greek restaurant where everyone is family; where everyone receives a consistent experience created by delicious homemade authentic food and impeccable service. In 1984 they opened Anatoli Souvlaki in north Vancouver. In 2011 their sons Alexi and Iani took over the restaurant and early 2015 they expanded on their parents original dream, in a new venture with their cousin Daniel Bergman, Alexi and Iani opened ‘The Greek by Anatoli’ in Yaletown. ‘The Greek by Anatoli’ focuses on small share plates or “mezze”.

    Good food. Great tzatziki. Very noisy, but likely that was because of the Canucks game playing the evenung we were there.

    Anatoli Souvlaki has been a long time favourite of ours, crossing a bridge to try The Greek By Anatoli - Yaletown didn’t disappoint. Some noise is what we came downtown for, and there was plenty. The food was perhaps less plentiful than on the North Shore, but everything was perfect, especially the desserts! Can’t wait to try again.

    The food took a lot longer than what we expected and the cauliflower appetizer was disappointing but the souvlaki and potatoes and wonderful server made up for it. Not sure I’d go back for a special event though.

    The food felt like it was prepared in the afternoon, the music being played was very loud and not very enjoyable and the very young waitresses were inappropriately dressed. This was not an enjoyable dinner and I will not recommend it to others.

    One of my favorite places in Yaletown. The atmosphere, staff and service are always good. The food is awesome and the price point is affordable. We started with the calamari (it's delicious) then ordered the Greek salad entre size with chicken skewers and pita with tzatsiki. We shared the salad and sides too and it was enough food for tow of us. My son had the Gyro and said it was the best he's ever had. We love the Greek by Anatoli and will continue to dine here.

    What a FANTASTIC dinner we had!! Made it with 15 min left in happy hour and prices were great!! Best Greek food outside of Greece we’ve had so far. Saganaki was to die for, spanakopita light and fluffy, everything was bursting with flavor. Fabulous service, friendly staff, such a nice change from what you can sometimes find when dining in Yaletown. We will be back!!

    Service was amazing as usual, staff very friendly and helpful. Food was delicious as always. Got the saganaki (came out sizzling and was amazing), calamari (big and crispy, some of the best in the city) and chicken souvlaki and shrimp platter (the veggie mix is the best, all of it was delicious), highly recommend going.

    This was our second time having dinner at The Greek in Yaletown. We have also visited the Gastown location. We really enjoyed our dinner! The service was excellent and the food was great! We had the Humous dip and pita for an appetizer and then shared a souvlaki platter for two. This was more than enough food for two of us. We found it to be quite affordable. We will come back for sure!

    Love the food here but service was more attentive last time I was here also lots of dirty tables around us. And not quick service. Also one employee took a picture of the dirty table after it was sitting like that for almost 30 min. The bar manager Ian is amazing though had him last time. And the food is amazing :)

    First time there and certainly not the last. Staff was great, good music too. Food made me travel to Athens. Good espresso and Metaxa to end the night. My wife had the baklava and she days it was one of the best. It would be nice to feature more Greek wines. We will be back for sure.

    Everything was lovely. Our server was very polite and efficient. Only 2 recommendations: be a bit more liberal with the tsatziki and make the skewers a bit bigger. They were a tad too small. Great flavours and overall satisfied!

    Absolutely awful experience with the host (guy with dark curly hair). The host was condescending and he did not want to be working. He didn't walk me to my table, instead, he pointed in the direction of the table so I went and sat at a table then he came over and said "This isn't the table I said but ok sit wherever you want I guess". I was in shock so I didn't say anything back. He then says "You seem to be in a bad mood I'm in the service industry so tell me what's wrong". I got up to walk out and he scoffed at me and told me not to come back as I just wasted his time on a busy night. This is in no way the way to treat a customer. I won't be back and will be sure to tell others to avoid this place.
