Let's start off with the bad - the parking lot is very tight with no easy access or egress, but prevail. Now the good - Once past the parking problem you have some steep steps to navigate, but there is a ramp off to one side for those that are stair challenged. Once inside the setup is a semi-circle with... More

I have been at Zougla's twice in one week - once for a business lunch and once for dinner with my spouse. Both times were excellent. The Greek items on the menu were very well cooked and presented with professionalism. There is a great view including some of the Departure Bay. This is a good place to eat whatever the... More

Great authentic Greek food in a lovely atmosphere with friendly service. I recently dined at Zouglas during my trip to Vancouver Island and was impressed with the food and service. There were three of us and we ordered the saganaki (fried cheese similar to haloumi) and pita with hummus for starters. The saganaki was very tasty and was served with... More

We've always enjoyed this restaurant for quiet, relaxing evenings with really good food. Several times we suggested adding Saganaki to the menu. Now they finally have - apparently many people made the same request. Awesome! I think we'll be going to Zougla more frequently :)

We live here in Nanaimo and have eaten at Zouglas for years, thus this review is very long overdue. For us this is the best restaurant in Nanaimo for a special dinner. The atmosphere is very nice, the service is always top notch and the food is consistently very good. The owner, Chris, is almost always there overseeing everything which... More

We went to Zougla with our family, which included two kids (9 and 11). The food was excellent and didn't take very long, although it wasn't super busy. The service was solid and I really enjoyed the ambiance. In the summer you could look out and see Departure Bay. The food is perhaps a wee bit overpriced and that would... More

Both of us had the braised lamb shank - the food was really good, great value, excellent staff. Will definitely go back. Nice selection on the menu, will try something with seafood next time.
