My husband and I had a late dinner here 2 nights ago and thoroughly enjoyed it. The place has a nice atmosphere and the interior is warm and inviting. They have a great selection of beer, and our server was very pleasant and helpful. We had eaten at this restaurant a couple of years ago and our meals were not... More

Since my first review in early June 2014, we have been back three times and we have been gone for a month. This is the first place we dined when we returned to Nanaimo. The sushi is even better than we remembered. Tony and Sarah are very gracious hosts. All the servers are friendly, knowledgeable about sushi, and professional. The... More

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.

Acme is one of my favorite restaurants in Nanaimo especially on a Friday night with the great line up of live music. The lunch and dinner menus are full of great surprises from The Sushi Bar to their delicious menus.....everything from fresh fish and chips....and their fantastic hamburgers, and of course! Much much more....you won't be disappointed! Not only is... More
