Lamb is on my mind...Over to Gorgona
August 07, 2014

This is only one of two lower mainland "greek" restaurants that gets my referrals, business and my appreciation of their offers. I can count on them for great lamb dishes and a wonderful dessert. The environment, whether sunny or not, is very cheerful and open. They have a inexpensive small wine list. Sit in the gazebo for wonderful summer night... more

Excellent food
August 06, 2014

Nice romantic restaurant. Excellent Greek food. Great value for money. Great service.
Try the TZATZIKI, the TARAMOSALATA, the BEEF SOUVLAKI and the MOUSSAKA.
Excellent food!

Delicious moussaka
July 26, 2014

$17.95 for probably the best moussaka I have ever tasted, even when in in Greece. served with delicious rice and a host of other items.
Did not have an appetiser, and had no room left for a desert.

Best Greek food in town
July 24, 2014

I've been here countless times with my family and each visit has been great! The patio is beautifully decorated with flowers, and the inside has a cozy feel with Greek music playing. The food is amazing and I personally recommend the lamb as they are famous for it here, but there are also other great appetisers and pasta dishes to... more

Quaint and charming
July 10, 2014

This is our go-to restaurant for delicious Greek food in Delta. The summer patio is romantic with loads of flower baskets and twinkling lights. Great service, generous portions,. Food is consistently great. Been at least 10 times now.

Best Greek Restaurant
July 01, 2014

We love this restaurant, the food is amazing and the ambience very relaxing and beautifully decorated. We always receive top notch service from all the staff and the owner makes sure everything is to our liking.
Definitely a great place to hold a family celebration, as well as a cozy couples night out!
We'll be back soon.

A Little Piece Of Greece

I dined here this evening with my family and was blown away with the food. I've never had such a great meal at any Greek restaurant in my life.

Good food, terrible customer care
June 24, 2014

My co-workers and I frequently order take-out from Taverna Gorgona during our work-week together because, although more expensive than average, the food has been consistently good. After our experience this week, we will not be ordering from them any longer.
A few weeks back, we had placed a dinner order with them for pick-up. As per usual, I requested extra... more

Every summer we come back I try and like this restaurant. The food is mediocre,at best, but it's the service that has gone downhill very fast and on a consistent basis.

A Little Greek Summer Paradise
April 14, 2014

Plates are always delicious and copious! I love it most when the patio is open, the fountain is splashing happily, and there's a lushness because of the well-tended greenery. And then there are the evenings when the lamb is roasting... the gods would be proud!

Been coming here for a long time and have always enjoyed the food and ambience. Large portions and a lot of variety. We have been very happy to share meals there with family and frequently with friends & guests. Souvlaki is excellent and even their fish dishes can be very good.

Average Canadian Greek Style Restaurant
March 01, 2014

We've been here a few times and it hasn't improved over the years. The food is mediocre at best, usually overcooked and under spiced for Greek food. The Greek salad was hours old, dry, no dressing, and limp. Service is adequate, the girls are rushed but get the job done. There's no background music or Greek authenticity, feels like your... more

Great Greek Food
January 29, 2014

Taverna Gorgona has a great Greek atmosphere and typical, but very good Greek dishes. They have the usual variety of entrees and appetizers and their prices are reasonable. The soulvakis are very good, but I have had better roast lamb. The Greek salad is generous and the service is good. We enjoyed our meal and would definitely go back!

Have been here a couple of times this year with friends who live in the area and each time, the food & service has been nothing more than average at best.

too compact of a place
October 13, 2013

We have not eaten at this place for some time only because it's quite small and you don't have a lot of privacy.
If that does not bother you, the food is pretty good, the quantity is OK but the prices are on the expensive side.

Always ...always ..always.. Order the chicken with prawns coated in a lovely garlic cream sauce. I love this dish so much that I have attempted many times to recreate it at home.. Also always delicious, yet very time consuming and messy to make...so just go to the restaurant and have them make it for you...lovely

August 03, 2013

The service quality has deteriorated over the years but the food is just as good. Don't go outside on the patio - it is cold there even on the best of days. I also ordered takeout there for a large group once but the food quality was not as good.

Taverna Gorgona is the Tops in Greek cuisine
August 03, 2013

This long-established Greek restaurant in the heart of Ladner Village deserves its large clientele of one-time-become-regular diners. Eating indoors or out, Greek decor and music set the tone for the great presentation of exquisite Mediterranean food and wine, with courteous and informed wait staff. From time to time belly dancing is on the menu - a truly moving extra!
