We were looking for a quick and interesting lunch: Alexandra's more than met our needs because the food was delicious. The Greek Platter answered the question 'lamb skewers or calamari' with 'Have Both - and lots more!' The Greek bread was fresh, delicious and completely unlike pita, the lemon potatoes were delicious, both lamb and chicken skewers were delicious (love the marinade), the calamari was crisp, fresh and not greasy, the house hummus was fabulous... it was all good. And the home made cheesecake was fabulous. We'll be back next time we're in Nanaimo to try the Italian menu :-)

The food is cooked from scratch, sauces are made daily. A wonderful array of choices both Greek and Italian. I am told their seafood dishes are great (not my thing)

Was warmly welcomed by the friendly staff at Alexandra's, enjoyed the table that my partner and I were led to. He ordered the Lamb Souvlaki and I ordered the Mousaka, both of which were A M A Z I N G!!! The owner made sure we were satisfied and the server never let our drinks go empty, would definitely go back!!

Had "Big FAT Greek Platter" for 2 which we shared for 3 and still had left overs.... excellent food and excellent service. Offered beverages when we were waiting and did not have to ask for refills. Owner came to see how we enjoyed the food as well as all of others in restaurant. Enjoyed that they offered both Italian and Greek food.

Ordered the moussaka... was very delicious ....served on a bed of rice with a small Greek salad and 1/2 a piece of pita bread.
Only drawback is the lack of customer parking in front of this quaint bistro....being "out-of-towners ", we were unfamiliar with areas to safely leave our vehicle.
