Felt like we were having dinner back in Greece

It looked very busy, and yet they found us a table for two immediately.. Enjoyed delicious grilled Calamari followed by a superb lamb souvlaki platter. Service was good, very nice friendly staff. A lovely evening out!

Seafood meal was wonderful! Atmosphere is happy and the staff is friendly . It is best if you make reservations. Parking is at a premium . Sitting outside is nice in this beautiful weather. Prices really aren't bad either. The platter for two is a good deal! It is a fun place.

Returned for lunch to one of the best restuarants in Nanaimo and was not disappointed. The chicken souvlaki was excellent as per usual, full of flavour and fresh tasting and more than enough for lunch. The lunch platter also looked great. Will contiue to make this a regualr stop in Nanaimo.

Truly excellent food, service & atmosphere. We live in Vancouver which has many great Greek restaurants but we all felt this was better than anything Vancouver has. Beautiful older house in the Old Town part of Nanaimo (easy walking distance from the hotels on the harbour), so make a point of having a meal there. We had 8 in our... More

GF and I ate here on a Saturday night after showing up to a full house on Friday. Best Roast Chicken I've ever had, so tender and perfectly seasoned. The Chicken was excellently prepared and plated. Only issues were that they charged extra for bread w/ my appetiser saganaki, what was i ongoing to eat flaming hot cheese on if... More

Never disappointing at this Restaurant. Food is great, service is great, prices are great for the meal you get. Check it out but perhaps make a reservation. Not too many nights where it isn't full!!

We came here for a late lunch/early dinner and the place was near empty. We were warmly greated and seated on the patio quickly. Service was fantastic, with genuine conversation, rather than just taking our orders. I had the lunch special which is a really nice way to sample much of the menu. The food was excellent, especially the calamari...not... More

We went there as a group of twenty (Dragon boaters) on Sat. night, everything was 5 star. The Staff, the food, the atmosphere were all first class. I don't know how the staff can produce such high quality food so quickly and always with a smile on their faces in such a small space. Our Team will be back next... More

We were a party of 6 in Nanaimo for the annual dragon boat regatta. The experience from start to finish was perfect! We shared the stuffed calamari appetizer and a combination platter. We asked for an increase in the size of the order and it was more than enough for 6 women as the portions were very generous. We will... More

Greek is always one of our favorite venues for restaurant visits and this was on the top of ones enjoyed. Wonderful setting and service. The food just topped off the experience. We would return in a heartbeat. Try the Moussaka and Greek plate. Calamari is not one of my favorites, but not here! Dolamands awesome. The whole event was savored!
