It is an old room, nicely decorated with wooden “pews” for seating. The menu is very eclectic - from sushi to flatbreads. The small plates are freshly made, creative and the portions are generous. We love to eat there before we catch a play or music at the Port Theater. There is always a “special” every day, including creative drinks.... More

We really enjoyed this restaurant, There is something on the menu sure to please everyone, from vegan dishes to burgers to seafood. I was able to actually have a healthy meal of salmon, quinoa and steamed vegetables, my husband the burger. The pies are just out of this world! They are homemade in the basement of the restaurant by our... More

We were spending just one night in Nanaimo with our 15-month old son, and needed a place to grab an early dinner that was toddler-friendly. Found Acme Food Co. and were not disappointed! Our server was fabulous - she knew exactly what tired parents with a toddler would need. Food was fast, tasty, and hot and the staff was friendly... More

I spend a lot of time in Acme in the mid-afternoon enjoying the view of downtown and its good coffee, oysters on the half shell and sushi. The oysters are to die for, the sushi is great and the coffee is very good. I keep on telling myself that I have to have a full meal and I will!

dinner, music, and service were all excellent. staff paid real attention to their customers and all the food was done outstanding. recipes were very good. linguine had a unique flavor to it, perhaps some sherry or something, and the ceasar was distinctively good, large croutons, peppercorn and fresh parmesian. excellent mousse dessert too.

We are sushi fanatics and have had sushi from Japan to Vegas to New York. This is some of the best sushi ever. They refer to it as sushi-fusion and it is more creative with wonderful sauces, relieving the sometimes dry sushi we have experienced. Excellent, attentive service and the host is delightful and engaging. Seriously, this is exceptional sushi... More

Just went there for the second time. Once again the food was great and the waitresses are just awesome. Friendly and helpful, especially since I needed gluten free options, and it turns out one of the owners is Gluten intolerant so they have lots of options. Of course what I most wanted was not listed as Gluten free, but they... More
