We were looking for oysters and walked into this restaurant during a down time. The manager took his own time to go and shuck the oysters. He also explained what he was doing to my 10 year old daughter while he was doing it. She was very interested. The oysters were so fresh and amazing, the staff was fantastic. I... More

Found this lovely restaurant on Canada Day when we arrived very late in Nanaimo and most restaurants had closed early. The waitress was very pleasant even though it was a few minutes until closing time she didn't try to hurry us with our choices and also didn't specify anything on the menu that we couldn't choose due to cooking times....

We have had mixed reviews of this restaurant over the years, but lately they seem be doing something right. Whether it's new management, or a new cook, I must say that our meal and drinks... More

Friends had recommended Acme Food Company and we were very glad that we took their advice and had dinner there. It is a family owned and operated restaurant which we prefer to chain restaurants. Overall we had an excellent dining experience. I ordered the westcoast cannelloni which was very very good and the portion was huge. My husband ordered the... More

I have been to acme multiple times as a new resident to Nanaimo and would recommend it to any one who would live to have a local experience! They have fresh shellfish and a wonderful atmosphere and staff. David my bartender this evening was also very friendly, knowledgeable, and inviting!

This is a great little restaurant for any time of the day. The food is good and fairly priced. The staff is friendly and helpful. They even had a musician that would play requests. It is right in the middle of downtown Nanaimo .....close to everything. Parking was not a problem. I would definitely go back again!
