Hydra Estiatorio Mediterranean
Food was delicious and the service genuine in a beautiful setting. Will be going back to try the happy hour downstairs!
Always the best...the food the service the ambiance we love this place...we will be back
Contemporary vibe with an emphasis on seafood. We shared oysters, octopus, whole fish, and a lovely baklava dessert—not too sweet, just right. Server was a great help in selecting wines and describing menu options including specials.
Pretty space. Waitress was very sweet. Cocktails were uninspired and just ok. Food was awful. Mediterranean dips were dry and/or tasteless. Black cod was poorly cooked. Grey soft skin on top. Wet and undercooked inside. Tiny cast iron pan of veggies could have been great but had a funky taste from inadequate cleaning/seasoning of the cast iron that was off-putting.
Very pretty place and the service was fine but the menu was very limited, the actual food was very ordinary and the portions were incredibly small and the wine list was way overpriced for the format of the restaurant.
Such a disappointment. I wouldn’t go here if you are hungry bed you will walk out hungry as there menu is very very very very very VERY disappointing.
The space and the service was decent. The food was very good. I would go back, but will give it some time to iron out a few details typical of any new restaurant.
Having travelled to Greece many times and brought up with a Greek family, I can say this restaurant does Greece proud.
The food, the menu and the service is excellent and although the menu could be even more adventurous and authentic to rustic Greek food, it is the very best I have had outside of Greece.
Well done, we will return. A
Beautiful setting, nice friendly service and menu. Negatives- pretty basic food and expensive. Our whole grilled shrimp were over cooked and mushy. The cauliflower and vegetables were the best items we had (meatless meal). The dips are nice but again very expensive for something pretty basic. On a positive the drinks were very good but....here I go again, the Wine menu was poor and overpriced. I won’t be back- for the price I’d much rather go to Elisa or Hawksworth
Great new venue in downtown Vancouver. Enjoyed the Mediterranean menu and the atmosphere.
Server was a bit deceiving in presenting the options and was up-selling which left a bad taste in our mouth. The lamb was excellent and can easily feed 5
Great lunch deals. It was the only thing we tried! Beautiful space, would love to try their other items sometime.
Resturant was out of lunch special by 12.15-20. Doesn’t seem like there’s enough preparation done. Prepare for changing the order
I would go again just due to ambiance and service of this place
As noted in the star section everything was excellent. Portion were huge (two full size fish for 2 person, one on the grill and the other in salt) and 4 Greek appetizers is too much for 4 people, unless desperately hungry. That should take nothing from taste, service and ambiance (book rear room if looking for a noise free for ease of conversation. Great casual dinner experience.
Excellent seafood. Dishes cooked extremely well and tasty. Great presentation. Highly recommend.
New restaurant, and very good overall. A few issues on our original seating, but a very good addition to Vancouver's food scene.
Our reservation was at on time at 7:30. After 1.5 hours and well after 9pm we decided to leave as our main still hadn’t come out after almost two hours. The waiter felt bad but I’ve been to a hundred restaurants and that amount of wait is a first. 2 hours with no meal. Crazy. Stay away.
Simply put not a very good restaurant
Worst experience ever! Waited almost two hours between our appetiser and entrees.
Everything was great except for the fish . We ordered Seabass grilled but it was dry. Timing was great until dessert, our guest had to leave to catch the ferry back to victoria. It took over an hour for our dessert to come. It was thrown in as complimentary but we had to extend our parking 3x.
Had fava bean and melitzana dips, both delicious. Appreciate being able to order vegetable crudités with them as I am gluten free and they had no gluten free bread available that night, but apparently they usually do have gf bread. Ordered the grilled shrimp and the sablefish to share and both were absolutely delicious. Service is very attentive and responsive to your needs. This was our 3rd time here and we really enjoyed it a lot!! Food is always very fresh and the entire experience is top-notch!!! Can’t wait till they open for lunch, and also hoping they will offer brunch on the weekends.
Tried several seafood appetizers plus the roasted veggies. Will be back with a larger group to have the leg of lamb- it looked amazing!
Service was great too.
Enjoyed the soft opening very much.
Curbside greeting is something new in town, great!
The space is beautiful with a grand staircase seperation of the lounge & restaurant.
Service was good, however maybe she had too much on her plate. (Too many tables?)
We went with her recommendations and 3249275782
This will be a pearl of Vancouver once it's up to speed!
