We took our daughter here for her birthday last weekend. We were pleasantly surprised, even after reading the reviews. The location is great, and the decor is wonderful.

Asteras is my favorite restaurant in the world. The food is always incredible and bursting with flavor. The ambience is charming and very European. The best part is the service. It is top notch and you are treated so very well. Always a complimentary dessert or drink. Makes you feel very special.

We are lovers of greek and italian cusine and have been to many great restaurants across multiple continents but Asteras surpasses all! Three of us - each with unique raves - me veg moussaka & my guests beef tenderloin souvlakia and Paidakia rack of lamb chops! We will consider making a special trip to Nanaimo to revisit Asteras alone!

Great tasting food made to please with lots left to take home. The owner always checks with us to ensure if... More

Asteras follows the tradition of Greek restaurants beautifully. Menu, ambience, service all excellent. Tried the grilled option for the calamaria - amazingly good! Lamb souvlaki cooked just the way I ordered it. Great meal.
