Very serene and peaceful right by the water, and about 5 min. walk from the ferry terminal. We didn't mind the slow service as we were in no rush and already in vacation mode. The Caesar's drink was a wise choice to cool down during the sunny afternoon. The burger and fish and chip were as ordered, so they were... More

Nice location by the marina, but lacks some personality. Some background music and more comfortable chairs would be a good start. Nothing spectacular or innovative about the food, but you can get a very decent meal for a reasonable price - good variety of fish and seafood, steaks, burgers, pasta. I had the scallops (came with roasted sweet peppers, pilaf... More

Beefeater's is located next door to the ferry terminal in Nanaimo. We missed our ferry and had a 2 hour wait for the next one. Once we figured out how to get out and re-enter the terminal, we went searching for a place for a snack and a drink. We found Beefeater's. It was a real find. We sat on... More

So this restaurant has been around for a while and the comments heard are that it is a bit on the "old School" side of restaurants. Old school can be fine, who doesn't love classic food? But when the menu reads as a delightful culinary experience and you receive a mediocre interpretation of that menu item disappointment ensues. The menu... More

Had dinner. My husband and son ordered the specials and were pleased with their meals. I ordered the one piece fish and chips. The presentation was very unappealing. Fish tasted fresh. Batter was a bit soggy and cool. Chips were not chips...they were some oddly cut potato things. My son had crepes for dessert. Odd...two crepes (not rolled), some blueberry... More

On the recommendation of the hotel front desk we stayed at, we visited Beefeaters for dinner one weekday evening. We arrived without a reservation and fortunately the restaurant was only about one third full so they were able to accommodate us. The restaurant is upscale, with tables nicely situated along the large windows overlooking the harbour/waterfront. A really scenic setting!... More
