Imagine going out to have a quick bite, then changing your mind to having a three course dinner accompanied by a bottle of wine. This restaurant is just heavenly so , after being greeted by the real Greek host/owner Peter, we sat down to a freshly made appetizer of crab/avocado with warm pita bread. That stimulated our taste buds to... More

Visiting from Victoria we were in Nanaimo to, sadly, attend a funeral. Having used TripAdvisor to find a restaurant I liked the look at Asteros and booked a lunch reservation.

This is one of best restaurants in Nanaimo for dining out out. The meals are always done to perfection and the service is second to none. The owner is always there to greet you and to ensure that your dining experience is the best that it can be.

Asteras is a favourite however we had not been for a few months. It was as good as always!

The chef split the meal between two plates which... More

Whenever I think of a great restaurant in Nanaimo, Astera's is on the top of my list. My wife and I love Greek food and Astera's never disappoints. From the welcome, through the meal and till the good-bye, we always enjoy it there :-)

One of my favourite places in Nanaimo. It is a little pricey, so it's usually just a special occasion thing. Great food, excellent service and nice ambiance. Highly recommend.

Used to frequent Asteras but last time there, the service was terrible and the food was very disappointing. Sent an email to let them know and it took 6 weeks to answer. I hope they pull up and get back to their good reputation.
