A busy restaurant on a Tuesday night in Nanaimo. We had the lamb with prawns, which came with roast potatoes, rice, salad and tzatziki sauce. Very good. My husband had the prawns and scallops, which he enjoyed. You must order the pita bread separately, which...More

The interior decoration is pretty. Greek food. Quantity is good. A bit heavy. No elevator, has to climb a few stairs. Could be a problem for wheelchair bound persons. 3.0-3.5/4.0.

We were a party of 9. We raved so much about our meal another 12 people from our larger group visited the following evening. Might be best Greek food ever. Lamb melted in your mouth. Don’t miss the grilled calamari! We had some high maintenance...More

I had to get help to pronounce the dishes but not to eat them! The Marouli salad was delicious and light while the Avgolemono soup was tasty and surprisingly not heavy with the creamy chicken, rice & lemon. I highly recommend both dishes! Service was...More
