A very nice restaurant

The food is mostly Mediterranean style and very good, plus it's nicely presented. The service excellent, and the restaurant itself is immaculate, although I find the furnishings dated, but this could just be the style. The restaurant is located fairly close to the ferry and is easily accessible... read more

I've been to Zougla's a number of times and I am always so satisfied with the food and service. The food is made with the finest ingredients and is always so flavourful and delicious. Be sure to try the calamari it's GREAT!! Can't wait til next time

An excellent restaurant in Nanaimo, serving Mediterranean dishes. Numerous choices, great service and great presentation. The restaurant is roomy, and can accommodate for different occasions. Free parking is available in the back. Prices are in the high-medium range. Opens weekdays at 11 AM, and 4 PM during the weekends.

The service and atmosphere here are fine. The food is decent but overpriced. Hard to describe but it's just does not have a groove. Dined here for dinner twice and same opinion both times.

My husband and I had a small wedding at home and went to Zougla for our wedding lunch in 2013. We go back every anniversary as it is romantic, the service is exceptional, the view of the sea is great, and the food is fresh and delicious. I am a strict vegan and called ahead to order a vegan meal.... More

Right from when you are warmly greeted by Frank, the owner to being seated in a relaxed atmosphere that is tastefully well appointed, this is an impeccable dining experience. Always fresh flowers at each table and a menu that makes it difficult to decide what to order. The staff are knowledgeable and respectfully trained, pleasant and professional - the service... More

Zouglas has great food but getting pretty pricey. The quality of the meals is always ecellent as is the wait staff, but getting out of our price range unless for a special occasion. There is lots of food but the cocktails and wine are pretty high.

We frequent this restaurant on special occasions and have never been disappointed! The atmosphere is wonderful....not too noisy. It has table clothes and candles and a remarkable water view from some of the tables. Be sure and make a reservation if you want a water view on a weekend. The staff are all very competent and friendly and our meals... More
