Unique setting in Old Downtown. Bright Mediterranean colours inside felt warm and cozy on a bleak rainy day. Family of six adults went for lunch on a Tuesday in early January. The lamb was slow cooked and melt in the mouth tender. My sister had the Taste of Greece lunch special-a platter of small servings of about ten different menu... More

Our family headed to Nanaimo for some fun and decided to stay for dinner. My son Googled restaurants in Nanaimo and this gem came up.

Each time I go to Asteras, the service is excellent and food exceptional. The owner often greets customers personally and is very welcoming. I spilled a glass of wine one nite and within minutes both the tablecloth and the wine were replaced. Highly recommend for both lunch and dinner.

Asters is always a solid choice for a nice meal in Nanaimo. It has a nice decor, good atmosphere and always great service. I always get their Greek special for lunch which generally comes with a great assortment of authentic Greek flavours..

Had lunch here two weeks before Christmas but didn't have reservations. Staff quickly rearranged two tables to accommodate us. Service was efficient and food was served quickly. Food was quite good and everyone was quite satisfied.

We were there for a large birthday, took up most of one side of the place. The food was great, we had a good time. My husband and I shared the platter for two , we are big , I mean big eaters, and we couldn't finish it all

We padded our reservation timing a bit too much, so after the matinee, we got to Asteras an hour early. Although the table they had planned for us wasn't yet available, they did accommodate with what they determined to be a less desirable one. It was close to the kitchen and serving area, but while a bit noisier than the... More
