Greek
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.

Met up with friends for a fun night out together—lots of great food, and the unexpected appearance of a belly dancer. We had a great time 👍🏻🎉😍

The food was good and prices reasonable. But the noise level was monumental, so loud that the waiter comPLETELY messed up our order....Two wrong courses, one main came first, then the appetizer, then the other main....what a muck up! It was all good, though, and they removed the price of one food item, so all in all, it was fine.

Always been lucky to get our favorite table when requested on OpenTable. Great food, consistent service and reasonable prices. Watch for specials during the week. Our favorite Greek restaurant.

One of my perennial favourites and I keep coming back. The lamp chops....oooh so delicious. We had a delightful waitress and a great table. Thanks for a super evening. And hi to the belly dancer.

We have to the before and the foods very good. Today the food was dry and service was ok. It was busy today. This should not be an excuse for the food to be dry.

Everything was great..just they asked for special occasion added birthday. First waitress acknowledged
Talked about her birthday and another one from our party.. nothing done. Ordered dessert. No candle or acknowledgement and charged. When mentioned, just oh I did not know.. She said maybe next time. I said next time isn't my birthday. End of discussion.

Absolutely terrible service from Sophia (flower tattoo on the top of her left hand). We had to ask other servers for more water, to order more food and the bill. She did not check on us nor was she around to do her job properly.

Food was good

Service and ambience great as usual. My pork souvlaki was chewy. Appetizers were on the small side. Desserts were generous and delicious.

Great restaurant! The pita bread was not good this evening and I have had it before when it was hot and fresh. Otherwise, the food is great.

Everything was great except for the noise of the motorcycles going up and down Lonsdale. We sat outside because of the great weather. Nothing to do with the restaurant

We had a delicious dinner at Anatoli and I highly recommend them. If you’re down at Lower Lonsdale and craving good comfort food, you won’t be disappointed. Around the table we had the country lamb, the “True Greek” pork souvlaki and the spanakopita. Each dish was delicious, with huge portions and packed full of home cooked Greek flavour. The service was top notch and the atmosphere was cozy and welcoming.

Great food and service. Wine is overpriced at $18 for a large (8oz I think) glass!!! Delicious Sangria for $10. We always enjoy this restaurant.

We (a group of 5) went to Anatoli to celebrate a friends birthday and we were given a lovely table in the back where we could talk and enjoy each others company. Overall our experience was fantastic, the staff was very attentive, the food was excellent and the entertainment fun. We have always enjoyed Anatoli Souvlaki and would recommend it to friends and family.

We typically dine a little earlier here, because it is so good, and so popular, it can get a little loud for me on a Friday or Saturday evening during the later dining hours. Great food and outstanding service!

Guess we are getting old. The Saturday night noise level was so high it was difficult to carry on a conversation. My friend turned his head and his plate with dip still remaining was cleared without being asked. My chicken souvlakia was ok. The rabbit was said to be good. I think the place works on Saturday for the under 30 crowd.

Some of the food was hot and some was cold(on the same plate) the service was excellent. The lighting on the upper floor feels like you are under a spotlight!! But lots energy in the room

My friend and I had a lovely lunch at Anatoli's. I ordered the Country Lamb which was amazing as usual!
We were too full to have dessert, but I had a very nice cup of coffee.

We spent Christmas Eve dinner here. Late sitting. Dinner as we always expect - scrumptious. We have been coming here for a long time.

But, now live on Vancouver Island and rarely get over your way.

Would have missed this,opportunity to dine with you.

My friend and I both ordered the country lamb and were surprised that it was half the size portions of the restaurant in yaletown. 40 dollars per plate and we both weren't full.
