There are those restaurants that tickle your taste buds but leave you little to glance around at as you eat the food in front of you. For an authentic experience -- on and off the plate -- Alekos Greek Taverna is Coquitlam’s Greek hot spot for the past 14 years. The ambiance is as reminiscent of Greece as it can get – terracotta tiles, soft green plants, sparkling whites and blues gives the regulars of this restaurant a feeling of being on a get-a-way.
If the ambiance isn’t well enough, the food also keeps you coming back for more. Voted the people’s choice, Best Greek Restaurant in Coquitlam for several years in a row, this menu has a wide-variety of mouth watering options. Famous for its flavourful souvlaki (chicken, beef, seafood or mixed), tender rack of lamb and traditional starters like calamari, spanakopita and keftethes – this menu will please even the most particular eaters. The secret? Everything is made fresh, daily, from long-held family recipes which are kept under lock and key – literally!
A Place to Party
Every Friday and Saturday night, Alekos offers a lively atmosphere of music and belly dancing. The friendly staff – many who have been working with the restaurant for several years – encourage clapping and even dancing for those who are adventurous. Large parties are welcome in the restaurant but reservations are a must. Tables tend to fill up fast on the weekend too, so reservations are recommended just in case. But if you miss out on eating out, take advantage of the extensive take-out menu and bring a little bit of Greece home for dinner.
