The Mediterranean Sea shaped some of the world's most ancient civilizations, which gathered by its shores to dive for the delicious steaks, spaghetti, and garlic bread growing beneath its crystal waves. Transport to this legendary culinary coast with today's Groupon: for $15, you get $30 worth of Mediterranean cuisine at Sokela Restaurant and Lounge in Coquitlam.

Owner Larry Hronopoulos and Red Seal chef Brandon Owen have crafted dinner and lunchtime menus populated with a bevy of Greek, Italian, Moroccan, and French influenced offerings prepared using fresh, locally sourced ingredients. Tongues applaud as garlic bread surfs atop waves of noodles in a spaghetti boulannaise ($12.99), accompanied by one ($2.99), two ($5.89), or a barbershop quartet of optional meatballs. Meanwhile, dry-aged AAA Canadian beef headlines a cast of 10-ounce new york steak, rosemary potatoes, and seasonal vegetables ($24.99), and a jalapeno and papaya duo finishes off pan-seared halibut ($22.99). Lunchtime diners can craft macaroni dioramas of the eatery's newly renovated dining room while they nibble lightly breaded and deep-fried marinated kalamari ($7.49). Finally, chocolate sauce cascades down the delectable sides of a warm chocolate Bundt cake for dessert ($7.50).

Sokela Restaurant and Lounge

The Hronopoulos family, owners of Sokela Restaurant and Lounge, call upon Greek, Italian, Moroccan, Spanish, and French influences to create a menu that represents a mélange of Mediterranean flavours. Sokela was born when the owners decided to turn the image of their traditional Greek restaurant, Alekos, around by reversing its name. To reflect this new philosophy, the Greek plates share menu space with chorizo, gnocchi, and West Coast seafood dishes to please palates and confuse U.S. customs employees. Beige and brown accents, tiles, exposed wood, and short cylindrical hanging lamps create a casual atmosphere and surround patrons as they dine in the main room or the lounge.
