“Small and Personal”
Reviewed May 18, 2012

Literally two chefs in the open kitchen. Limited seating and hours. But the food is creative and well presented. Very friendly place with no pretense. Daily specials and previously prepared take away of soups, etc. Perfect downtown bistro for breakfast, lunch or desserts.

“Outstanding new small bistro”
Reviewed March 26, 2012

Open a year and doing well, on old high street.
All day bistro food, from scratch, open kitchen,
expertly done, novel presentations.
standout Eggs Benny, just when you thought
you'd tried all variations.

“Fantastic food in a cute little bistro”
Reviewed February 13, 2012

If they were open in the evening, they would be THE place to dine in Nanaimo. Everything's fresh and home made and absolutely fantastic. Try their soups - something different every day and just to die for!

“Great lunch”
Reviewed February 3, 2012

I recently had a great lunch at 2 Chefs. Although the restaurant is a bit small the great food made up for the unexciting atmosphere. The service is excellent too!
