I have come here many times as a couple, with friends, and with a larger family group. Every time the food is excellent and service is great. I always get the grilled calamari, tasty and a generous portion! The desserts are amazing and a nice selection of Greek wine.

My two girlfriends and I met up at Asteras for lunch. It was my first visit. The atmosphere is charming and the sunroom where we were seated was open and airy, a plus given the gray skies on that day. Our server Megan was lovely. She took my friends' wine order and gave us time to chat and review the... More

Nice and attentive staff, really good food, lovely atmosphere. As this restaurant is usually very well booked, it might be recommendable to make a reservation. We will be back.

The atmosphere is great and staff/service is amazing. The food is also good, sometimes isn't very warm however. Usually have the chicken souvlaki (it's thighs) it's very tender and tasty. The hummus and pita I highly recommend. Usually you get a free little drink at the end of your meal as a great added touch.

I recently had dinner at Asteras with my co workers while on a business trip to Nanaimo. It was a wonderful experience! The staff went above and beyond to make sure we had a lovely night and the food is delicious with generous portions. Highly recommended!

A little Gem in Nanaimo. A very intimate atmosphere with phenomenal service. Food was very flavourful and staff was top notch. Prices were very reasonable for the quality. Very small restaurant as a converted house so intimate but loud due to everyone enjoying the experience. Not recommended for kids Opa!

We needed to go out for dinner as we hadn't set up her kirchen, well Nanaimo is not know for a plethora of great restaurants , but decided we'd try Asteras based on reviews in this site . The restaurant... More
