Lovely

Wonderful food and great surroundings. I do not get to go out for a meal often, so when I do, there is nothing worse than feeling like you wasted you time and money. Not here!

We have always enjoyed our whole experience from the food, service to the atmosphere. This is a very busy restaurant so we suggest reservations just to be sure you can go when you want. The owners/ staff have always been very friendly, efficient and professional. Never a long wait for drinks or your food .

I'm back home in Windsor now where grade A food is the norm, but this place was an awesome stand-in while I lived in Nanaimo. Best Greek food in town for sure!

My husband and I have been here many times in the last 3 years. The food is very tasty and the portions are quite large. To date, all our visits to Asteras have been very good! I do find the service a little amok during busy times, and we've often had two or three people attending to us. This is... More

Was driving home to Victoria from Coombs and called a friend in Nanaimo and said let's go for dinner. She said I know where I want to go. So we went to Asteras Greek Taverna. It was a very good choice. The service was excellent and the food was superb. I highly recommend if you want a delicious Greek dinner.

Everything was so special for me from the personal greeting by Peter the manager owner to all the waitresses that were there to take care of all your needs and served with a smile. Cozy atmosphere ans excellent food

Whenever we feel like having a special Greek experience, especially, the lamb, we go to Asteras and have never been disappointed. The restaurant is family run in a charming converted house. The staff are friendly, cheerful and efficient and always ready to go that extra mile to please you.

I came for a visit and appointments with a freind and had the BEST ever lunch and can't say enough about the quality, quantity, and service was amazing. They liked us and we liked them and received a free cake portion that topped us up like little butterballs.

Visiting Nanaimo on a business trip in June. Inquired at the hotel where there was a good authentic Greek restaurant for dinner. Was given a couple of options. Asteras Greek taverna looked appealing. Myself and my colleague were tired and hungry ,looking forward to a enjoyable evening and a good meal. Right from the start of this dinner was very... More

My boyfriend and I went to this Greek restaurant hoping for a romantic evening...It was completely ruined by horrible service, a waitress with a terrible attitude, the owner was yelling at the staff on the floor of the restaurant, and when our pita was brought to us, a piece fell on the floor and they picked it up and put...
