Marina View

A nice "out of the way" fine dining restaurant with a great view of the adjoining marina, ask for a window table. The menu is varied with something for every taste, even fish and chips, though we both had the Salmon Oscar. They don't have a separate gluten-free menu but our server Tera knew the... read more

We enjoyed the prawn appetizer and rack of lamb which was cooked to perfection! The servers were soft spoken, attentive and lovely. The view was serene and interesting. We loved it!

If you're stuck at the Nanaimo ferry dock you've got two nearby choices for food. Beefeaters is the one to avoid. We should have known that a restaurant that doesn't post a menu outside probably has other problems. Still, it looked nice from the door, and even had tablecloths. The menu is horribly overpriced, with entrées in the $20 and... More

Had lunch and while the food was good the portions are very small And I had to eat a cheeseburger after. Prices very high for what we received. I felt the value is very low and we won't be going back

There was nothing to not like. My appetizer of oysters was great and so was the entree crab/avacado salad. Excellent service. It is also a great atmosphere.

Beefeaters has been a Nanaimo fixture for the better part of two decades and it longevity speaks volumes to its success. Located along the waterfront and close the ferry terminal, this restaurants somewhat dated but charming character offers a pleasantly consistent variety of dishes that should please just about everyone. The staff that I have meet have been there for... More

This restaurant was referred to us at the Pine and Picket Bed and Breakfast. We found the food tasty and the staff friendly and very efficient.

Was okay.. Food was okay not bad but not great. Service was lacking. Felt like I was bothering the servers if i asked for anything. And one server looked angry the whole time not one smile.

Located on the wharf near the ferry terminal, we found this unassuming restaurant just a short walk from our bed and breakfast. The dining was semi-formal and very comfortable. The staff were professional, friendly and efficient. They use only fresh caught sea food and fish which is definitely evident in the tasty dishes we enjoyed. Each day , there is... More

We were aiming for the pub next door but the posted daily special at the Beefeater caught my eye. More of an upscale feel with tablecloths and cloth napkins but very comfortable and friendly staff. Watching the activity in the harbour was a great way to spend a late lunch. The food was very good, the only miss on the... More
