“New Restaurant - worth a visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 22, 2014

This us a new restaurant at a location and décor similar to a predecessor but a completely different menu. I would suggest the restaurant needs time to work out service bugs as the service was inconsistent and sporadic. I definitely would go back but I would give it a little time before I do. The food was very good. It was hot and well presented. Too much Greek bread littered the plate which both us wasted. The bread, as part o the entre should be elevated in favour of little bread served separately. The calamari was excellent. The entrée were good but not exceptional. The roast lamb had a strange flavour to it,I guess based on the way they cook it, not to my personal liking. There was fat on the shank that should have been removed. The salad included with your entrée was excellent and the fruit desert plate, also included as a nice bonus. Overall I will return and I would take guests there. There is good value good but not exceptional food and a pleasant atmosphere.

“After the movie”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 2, 2014

Just left the movie & drove downtown for a meal - but, hey this is Nanaimo where not much is open at 9:45 on a Monday. Popped into Marina's and had an enjoyable meal; friendly staff.

“Awesome place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 30, 2014

Found this little diamond by accident, turned the wrong way and there she was. A quaint little place with the best pizza I have tasted in a long time, lots of character and very very friendly. The ladies were very sociable and gave a small dance for us.
