“Amazing Food and Excellent Service!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013

We have been to this restaurant twice now and each time the food has been top-notch, fresh and flavourful, and the service is excellent and professional. While the prices are not cheap, they are reasonable for the quality of food you are receiving. This restaurant is an excellent place for a special occasion but also for just a nice dinner out. With the right table you can even get a glimpse of Departure Bay. We will dine here again and would highly recommend it to others - locals and tourists. Enjoy!

“Old fashioned romantic”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 21, 2013

We dine here a few times each year. The atmosphere is perfect for a relaxed '80's style romantic evening.

The service is pleasant and efficient.

The food is quite tasty and worth the prices charged.

I do wish they would change up the menu and add saganaki.

“Reminds me of the 80,s”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 11, 2013 via mobile

I come to zouglas for their steak cause its the best in town. And the wife likes her chicken dish. But the menu is dated and needs a change. The decore is upper class but customers in baseball caps and tee shirts says its not. I was not that happy with my appetizer and service was not very attentive at all. So if you want a steak this is the place even if your in your jogging suit it doesn't seem to matter.

“Best Place in Nanaimo to Dine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 23, 2012

I have been here many times over the last 10 years, And,most of the occasions have been for special family events. The serving's always meet or exceed my expectations. The menu provides a variety of choices at affordable prices, although there a few dishes at the higher price end. Here you can get excellent Mediterranean, as well as a variety of seafood, steak and other dishes. If you are looking for that special place and you are in Nanaimo, look no further. This is the place.

“Group Holiday dinner”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 13, 2012

We had a wonderful evening at Zouglas for our annual Christmas dinner. Our group of 20 were seated in a private corner and had a fantastic meal, served promptly and all together. There was not one complaint, the meals were tasty and hot. The service was friendly, helpful and professional. It really was a wonderful evening. There were another very large group and we were all surprised how efficiently we were served. It was great.
