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.

Our first visit was for my father-in-laws 88th birthday on Sunday, December 1, 2013. The restaurant is lovely, cozy and immaculate. With our reservation, we requested a table in the corner of the room due to dad not being able to hear very well. Upon arrival, we were seated at a lovely table in the corner of the room and... More

We realized we still had over an hour and a half before the ferry left so we pulled over to pull out my iPhone to check what... More
