Asteras never disappoints. The food continues to be excellent and well prepared. The staff also adjusted our seating easily when it discovered that we had more people than we had reserved for. Its setting in Nanaimo's old town is also a delight.

Everything we have ordered has been excellent, have gone with groups of 10,6,4 and 2 and everyone had positive things to say about the food and service. The platters are excellent food and value.I have been to this restaurant at least 6 times.

The food was wonderful. My daughter and her boyfriend shared the No. 1 platter which was full of delicious samples of roast lamb, moussaka, spanakopita, dolmades, calarmari, greek sale, vegetables, tzatziki and fresh warm pita bread. I had the grilled halibut entree. The cost for everything was very reasonable. The service was top-notch. The staff never left us without water... More

Having visited Greece many times Asteras food is the genuine greek taste. The owner & all the staff are so friendly & welcoming it feels like a taverna any where in Greece. My favourite meal is the lamb that melts in your mouth.

We enjoyed some excellent service and food. We shared one of their mixed platters and some appetizers. There were four of us and we couldn't even finish it all! Great room as well. We shall return.

This is a well-established restaurant in the Old Quarter of Nanaimo. It seats about 40 people and is popular for small groups and couples. They do a nice saganaki appetizer amongst many others and have a modest wine menu. The seating is on the second floor of a converted older home and the decor is very pleasant but the stairs... More

There is a reason reservations are required. This place is consistently GREAT! Each time we go here we leave very happy. We had the platter which gives you a taste of various foods. The place was full but the service was top notch. We will return again, and again. Would definitely recommend this place to everyone.

The restaurant is located in the old district in a beautiful old home with a new atrium. We didn't have reservations but arrived early and had not problem find seating in the atrium. The service was wonderful and the meal excellent. The appetizer special was a great seafood treat.
