This post is long overdue, but I didn’t want to not write about Stefanos Restaurant. They deserve some recognition.
Stefanos is located in New Westminster on the main road, Columbia Street. I have to admit I’ve never heard about the place, but word of mouth put this restaurant on the radar.
My friend, Shirley had her wedding lunch at Stefanos and everything was handled wonderfully. They accommodated our group at the last minute as well, but everything went smoothly. The wedding took up a little more than half the restaurant on the second floor. We had microphones for speeches and a dance floor for people who want to let loose.
The food was delicious. For my main, I had the roast lamb was tender, moist and seasoned well. The roast potato was cooked well and flavorful. Everyone had shared appetizers which featured a little of everything on the menu. There were spanakopita, calamari, hummus and meatballs.
The staff were personable, helpful and full of smiles. This alone made a huge difference. From the time the reservations were made until the last person left the restaurant, we were treated very well. Not many of the guests brought their kids, but there were plenty of high chairs if they were needed. The restaurant is spacious so the kids could have played in an area of their own as well.
Stefanos is out of the way if you’re visiting Vancouver from out of town, but if you’re in the area, it’s worth checking out.
