“Convenient restaurant inside Coast Bastion hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2014

The service was very good. The drinks were well made and very tasty. The atmosphere is comfortable and the very great. My Minnoz curry bowl was not the greatest, runny and did not taste any curry, so I was not impressed. Other members of our group had the tempura fish and chips and seafood sandwich which were excellent.

The next morning, we had breakfast delivered to our room and this was very good and delivered on time.

“Good service, comfortable tables”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 18, 2014

The staff at this hotel restaurant have mostly been working here for years. Generally, the food is very good, though the prime rib I gas on Friday evening was tough and undercooked. It was promptly recooked but that did not help the texture. The next night I had cod which was very good, but not the best of the season.

“Eggs for breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

A very nearly perfect hollandaise sauce on the eggs benedict variations, I think I had salmon instead of ham -- delicious!

“Best kept secret dining choice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 12, 2014

Minnoz Restaurant and Lounge has to be the best kept secret dining choice in Nanaimo. I am mystified why there is not a line up of waiting diners by the host's station. Perhaps it is because it is a restaurant attached to a hotel (The Coast Bastion Inn) that primarily serves hotel guests.
Their bookings seem to be dependent on the Port Theatre clientele and hotel occupancy.
Pity!

For locals it is one of the best places to eat mid island.
Besides the decor being tastefully finished, Minnoz offers a great view, good service, large portions, reasonably priced extensive menu, food that is both beautifully presented and absolutely delicious.
Kudo's to the kitchen chefs.

Among the entrees is the prime rib/yorkshire entree at under $20, or a 3 course prime rib dinner for $29. Only suggestion is our dinners weren't very hot.
The steamed clams starter special for April was gigantic, full of baby clams, under $10 and a real treat. The fresh berry crumble dessert was the best I've ever had, and hey, its hard to get ecstatic about a crumble:)

They just do it right. If you are a foodie, try Minnoz.

“Fantastic Service and Food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2014

Janine and Garry are probably the two best restaurant - hosts I've encountered in a long time. They are both so friendly, attentive and professional. The food was terrific!
