I visited Nanaimo for the long weekend and stopped at Marina's Taverna for dinner. The atmosphere of this restaurant is modern, welcoming and has a very friendly and attentive staff. I ordered the beef gyro with fries and this is the best gyro I have had in a long time. I will definitely return to Marina's soon!

My family lives in Nanaimo and recently tried Marina's Taverna. We dont have alot of experience with Mediteranean food however Marina's is the best we've had in town! The staff was helpful about what to order as well as very friendly, service was exceptional, and the food was absolutely delicious, said even our picky 10 year old! The atmosphere there is great for any and all occasions, the pricing is very fair as portions are large! We definitely trying it out, and we will sure be back soon!

Well, what an experience. The awesome renovations certainly give you the feeling of a true traditional Greek restaraunt. From the colour selections to the back ground music and proffessional knowledgeable staff, all contribute to the experience. As for the food, it is to die for. Not sure how the cook and his right hand man prep their lamb, but it is the Best we have ever tasted. The kalamari was mouth watering. The remainder of our dinner became next days lunch due to the large portions. Our meals were complimented by their special coffee and desert. Prices are compeditve, resonable and affordable.Be sure to book early as this establishment has become very popular. As Greek cuisine is one of our favorites, we plan on leaving the mainland once again for another great Greek dinner experience. We rate Marina's Taverna 5+

Excellent! Generous portion and delicious! Cost of a meal very reasonable.
Lamb cutlets very delicious. Excellent chef. I come from Quebec and the pizzas are different and delicious. The crust number one.
