We went to Asteras on a busy Friday night. Food took over 45 minutes to arrive. Owner or sever ever said anythingg well waiting so long. Food was over cooked and bland. Sevice was terrible. And the way the staff seemed to be mistreated. Never going back!!!

The food is fresh, hot and well prepared, you will not be disappointed. The same food is priced more cheaply at lunch so if you're on a budget... Owner is friendly and wants you to enjoy your meal. Staff are professional & attentive.

Friendly staff, delicious food, fair price! A bit hidden in the Old Town District (?) of Nanaimo. The Souvlaki was excellent, the kids got extra service.

Dolmades were definitely freshly made as well (which is not often the case) and the lamb was delicious. Definitely one of the best Greek meals we've had - and we... More
