Fantastic Dinner

My husband and I treated a local friend to dinner - we are from Vancouver going to Campbell river and were on the ferry googling restaurants when my husband read reviews so we decided to try it. It is not inexpensive but was well worth the $$. Staff was friendly, food was great! 2 of us had... read more

Cons: truly mediocre food Pros: , clean, airy, nice views, close to ferry and you can sit for hours whiling away time if need be. Very good, friendly service. Enough said.

Our last evening in Nanaimo, miserable weather......lets go eat! 'Zougla' was just 15 min drive from our Hotel. Good decision, good choice. Excellent starters and main course of Lamb and my wife had enough Prawns for life! Service was exceptional, the freshly baked bread to die for! Most impressed.

We ordered some drinks, dinner, dessert. Waiting time periods were within tolerance. Food was very delicious and refined. Price was high end and acceptable. The decor is very nice and matched. You should dress up. You dont have to; you would fit in either way, but the decor will have you feeling great if you dress up. I gave compliments... More

Been dining at Zougla for many, many years. Chris (owner) and his staff are wonderful, they go out of their way for you! The food is amazing, the staff friendly and great service! You feel welcomed every time and have never been disappointed! This is the best restaurant in Nanaimo! Food and service is amazing!

My husband and I where looking for a nice restaurant in the Nanaimo area as we where on holiday there for the first time! We where driving around and this restaurant catched our eyes. Even from the outside we felt it looked very inviting. So we went inside and felt welcome by the owner and the hostess. Very friendly and... More

Found it on a whim. Was heading somewhere else and saw the sign! Even the sign looked inviting. The staff went out of their way to be helpful, courteous and pleasant. The owner welcomed us in. And then there was the food. Sharing was the plan. A small loaf of fresh sour dough bread followed by a large Mediterranean spinach... More

It is a good Greek restaurant. The flavours were great. The steak was tender but a tad over cooked. The rice was made with chicken stock which enhanced the flavours. The service was very professional but a tad slow. The decor is dated but pleasant enough. It is a little pricy for what you get. Over all it is a... More

I was very impressed by the warm welcome and excellent service. Choose a Thursday evening for best seating. What a spectacular view. Could the food live up to this? Yes, it did. Probably the best steak I've had in years, cooked exactly how I like it. Only the Bold Knight rivals the food, but here you have the view as... More
