We arrived at the restaurant and it was totally empty apart from our party of four .Somewhat with trepidation we entered. We were greeted by a friendly and attentive waitress who seated us and put us at ease .... We ordered our food and drinks and whilst waiting the room came to life as more and more people arrived...within minutes... More

Sandy and I had supper there recently. I had the roast lamb and she had beef tenderloin brochettes. Both meals were excellent. No complaints at all. The service was really good too considering how busy it was when we went. The wife and I will definitely return. While I would not describe Asteras as a "cheap" place to eat, the... More

I am half Greek and grew up in a Greek neighborhood. This place is authentic, as evidenced by the two cooks, and probably the best restaurant in Nanaimo. Get yourself some Tarama and pita. The fried calamari was the best my wife and I have ever had, simply prepared in a light batter and served with tatziki. We also shared... More

Went on a busy Friday. We got the last table w/o a reservation. Food was very flavorful and the service attentive. The menu has a full range of Greek specialties plus lots of seafood. Both our meals were outstanding. Can be quite noisy when the restaurant is full. Overall a wonderful experience.

We arrive without a booking and we're happily accommodated even though the restaurant looked quite busy. The restaurant has a great vibrant atmosphere and would be suitable for anything from a special occasion to a casual meal. All our meals were delicious, mousaka, roast lamb and land souvlaka.

We have never been disappointed in the food or the service at Asteras. Every Server is courteous and efficient. I prefer to sit in the sun room area. It is not quite so noisy. It is a very popular place so do not expect a quiet intimate dinner. Expect happy loud conversation. The food is wonderful and the service is... More
