From the critics ….
“Among the area’s very few off-Granville Island dining options is a sweet Greek restaurant as serene as the Mediterranean vistas on the wall. No surprises on the menu, but the souvlaki has a nice charred smokiness and the lamb (slow-roasted leg, or broiled loin or chops) is flavourful. Hearty moussaka sees silky béchamel, fragrant meat, eggplant and zucchini layers in a thin-sliced potato shell. Locals take out the thick, crisp pizzas, like the feta-rich spinach and artichoke”
– Vancouver Magazine
“Apollonia is not your usual Greek restaurant. No blue and white paint, no Zorba music, it’s not big and noisy, and most of all it has much better Greek food than any restaurant I’ve eaten in outside Greece itself”
– James Barber – Barber’s Best
“(roast lamb) … a chunk of meat that falls away in layers, fork tender, mild in flavours accompanied by pale golden roasted potatoes and a well assembled Greek salad … moistly textured fluffy Mousaka … well prepared affordable Greek food”
– Tim Pawsey – Vancouver Courier Food Critic
“At Apollonia, they know how to get the gastric juices working with good substantial home cooking … the Greek Platter amounts to a small buffet … roast lamb shoulder cut, the bone left in, braised at a low temperature for a long time with garlic, herbs and lemon which leaves it melting and aromatic …”
– Angela Murrills – Georgia Straight Food Critic
From our diners ….
“Terrific Greek food with quality a step far above many other Greek restaurants in Vancouver…”
“Friendly staff, great food & unbeatable prices. if you like Greek food, you must experience Apollonia”
“My favourite restaurant for comfort food! I’m a vegetarian and I love coming to restaurants where there are tons of options for me. I live near by so I’ll also get delivery. They’re always friendly, prompt and delicious!”
“We have been frequent diners over many years at Apollonia at Fir St & 2nd Avenue (near Granville Island) – family owned and operated, this is one of Vancouver’s true gems. Fantastic home-cooked Greek food……best avgolemono soup we’ve ever tasted. All menu items are absolutely delicious; staff is attentive and friendly. Good wine options and excellent value. Don’t miss this one!”

“The spanakopita was perfect: the phyllo dough crunchy outside and tender inside, and the right mix of spinach, garlic and feta cheese for the filling…”
