Food is amazing, service impeccable, and location is a charming repurposed heritage home. Also a lovely garden out front.

Good authentic Greek food. Service is usually pretty good depending who your server is. A bit on the expensive side but has the feel of a good big city restaurant.

We had a family dinner at Asteras just before Christmas. Despite the restaurant being packed, the food was outstanding and the service was well paced from arrival to departure. It was a wonderful evening!

Food is really good, great service and a fun place to go. If you are looking for a quiet place for dinner this is not the place on the weekend but is great for celebrating family birthdays etc.

There was a buzz about the place when we arrived and I was glad that we had made a reservation, even though this was a Tuesday. We sat by the front window, a lovely spot partly because it was less noisy. The service was a little slow, but when the food came the lamb cutlets were very fleshy, perfectly cooked... More

I have been coming here for years......since they opened. I have always enjoyed every meal throughly. Just delicious! The Mousaka is yum, the Lamb is melt in your mouth just to name a few items and for desert the Ek Mek is simply amazing! Service has always been great and very welcoming. An absolute gem in Nanaimo!

The food was amazing! I didn't even know I liked Greek food. The waiter helped us choose a fabulous wine to go with it. All the wait staff were personable and prompt and accommodating, the dining area was beautifully lit and open visual of the town below. I can not wait to go back. It should be on everyone's list...
