Best Greek cuisine in Nanaimo area

Beautifully renovated house in old Nanaimo offering great atmosphere and marvelous Greek meals. Staff was very friendly, service was impeccable. We were a group of about 20 from work. I've been to Asteras before and will go back without a doubt. If you plan on going as a couple, ask to be seated... read more

I was a little disappointed. We typically go out for New Years with friends on the 30th preferring to have a "quiet" celebration at someone's home on the 32st. We made reservations at least 6 weeks ahead of time and asked for a table in the atrium. We were told that they would do their best but cannot reserve a... More

We have been going to see Peter and his team at Astera's for years and the most remarkable thing about the place is how it is always excellent. This authentic Greek restaurant nails it on every dish, every time. The roast lamb is my personal favourite - it falls of the shank and matches perfectly with the potatoes, rice, vegetables... More

Located in downtown Nanaimo, in a picturesque Victorian style house, is this really great Greek restaurant. Great service, great food and even an after dinner blue ouzo drink is the perfect end to a great meal. Great selection of wines as well. It's not on the cheaper side but, well worth the money. Hope you check it out. Opa!

Friendly staff and great food. Very comfortable location, right down town and the owner comes and checks with the guests most times. One of my favourite places for great Greek cuisine.

Very good food. Tasty and filling. The Greek wine Rouge was good too. We will definitely go back. The only reason I did not give it 5 star was because the place was a little bit noisy. The music was loud too.

I've been here four times. Every time, have rallied the Sharing Platter #1. Every time, after dinner, would like to high-five the person across the table and the people at every other table but I'm slumped back in my chair with a stupid grin, patting my belly, sipping my wine, trying to keep things formal since it's a pretty nice...

Peter and his staff took very good care of us again for a memorable evening. Such a terrific selection of delicious appetizers to our favourite of Moussaka and Lamb Shanks. Memorable and thanks so much for such a treat.
