“Hidden gem”
Reviewed April 26, 2013

Excellent place to dine. A hidden gem in Nanaimo. 3-course meal was delicious and well-priced. Good wine list. Small plates on Wednesdays a nice alternative to a full meal.

“Great food great location”
Reviewed April 18, 2013

This jewel of a restaurant on Westwood Lake is a wonderful spot for lunch or dinner with a lovely view of the lake. The food is great and although it is a bit out of the way on Arbot Rd it is well worth the effort to go there. A great addition to Nanaimo.

My wife, son and his girlfriend and myself went here recently and were treated to a wonderful dining experience. The staff were spot on and Gatean was a delight. The food was spectacular and well presented. All of our requests were handled courtesly. We had a wonderful time and will return as we live close by.

“Bistro in Nanaimo”
Reviewed April 8, 2013

This fairly new restaurant is situated on a lake on the edge of Nanaimo,BC. The setting is perfectly serene and beautiful. This is a fine restaurant both in decor and food. The menu is creative, delicate, and in good taste. The staff are welcoming and casually friendly making you feel at home in a 'high-end' looking astmosphere. You can have a casual weekday meal or go for that special occasion. I would recommend it highly.
