Welcome to Marias Taverna a family owned and operated restaurant, where great food and good times come together. Located in the heart of Kitsilano, Vancouver our Restaurant offers Fine Greek Cuisine in a Charming Atmosphere. We Hope to See You Soon!
Marias has a wonderful facility, typically decorated in the greek style with wonderful atmosphere. Unfortunately, neither the food nor the service live up to this setting or atmosphere! If you go to either of the two restaurant locations--West 4th or Denman Street in Vancouver, you will the find the service obtuse and disinterested. The food often takes forever to get to your table, even if the restaurant is not particular busy. Explanations or apologies or acknowledgement of the delay is hard to come by, and one gets the feeling nobody cares if you come back or not, because apparently, there are plenty more customers like you out there that will show up for one meal before deciding to take their money elsewhere! If you order take out or delivery, you will be given a standard time estimate that bears no resemblance to reality, and you will be given an equally stock set of excuses when your food does not materialize in any reasonable time frame! If you wish to avoid russian roulette with your restaurant or delivery experience, avoid patronizing this business!

Authentic Greek Fare

There are, of course, the mandatory splashes of blue and white painted trim, mimicking the colours of the Greek flag, and pretty pictures of Santorini. It is a Greek restaurant in Vancouver after all. The Kitsilano location has been around since the late 1980s, and... more
Had a delicious meal while visiting Vancouver. A friend and I had the tamara and hummus as appetizers. The warm flat bread was great. It was my first experience to try tamara, which is a very smooth spread to be eaten with the flat bread. For entrees, we chose lamb souvlaki and mousaka. The portions are substantial and the sides were really good. Although the lamb was good, I'd say the... more
Excellent food, and service, very enjoyable experience.
delicious food a an affordable price,best on 4th ave.
With its authentic Greek cuisine and warm hospitality, the family-run Maria’s has maintained a loyal following in the Kitsilano neighborhood for several years. The blue and white décor is classic Augean, the atmosphere cozy and inviting. Start with an appetizer of zesty hummus and pita or a plate of lightly battered calamari. Greek salad, roast potatoes and rice accompany all main dishes. Try... more
