Asteras Greek Taverna

Previously known as Phoenicia restaurant, this is now open as Asteras.  This Greek restaurant seems to have all the traditional Mediterranean dishes you could want.  The decor is very inviting and the service is great.

    Had lunch there the other day and was very glad we did.
    The food was delicious. Traditionally Greek!
    My dining buddy said she would like to bathe herself in the hummus. I thought it was good, but I thought that was a little excessive. I had the lamb souvlaki. $12 which included rice, potato, tsatsiki and greek salad. Had to order pita separately which seemed strange as normally pita would be included. Other than that, tons of food!
    My friend had the lunch special, which included calamari, spanakopita, keftede, dolmade and of course hummus, tsatsiki and pita. all for $12. I thought it was well priced and well portioned.
    I’m not a vegetarian, but I thought they had a pretty good selection of veggie items.

    Went there for dinner the other night and was very impressed. It”s not only one thing but the whole package put together.First is the room. it”s so warm and soothing , you feel like you have left Nanaimo , if only for an hour. On a cold dreary day it is a welcome distraction. Then the host greets you and the service in this place is exceptional. They want you here and appreciate your business and it shows!Then the food comes and everything is delicious and high quality and affordable too. Overall a most memorable experience. I give very high marks to this place and recommend it tremendously. Let”s hope they keep it up :) !

    Very impressive restaurant that saved me a lot of money. Do not have to go to Greece to get authentic Greek food.
    Three of us went for a special dinner. The restaurant had a wedding party of twenty plus and this in no way deterred from the service and food delivery.
    We had the lamp souvlakia and the #1 combo platter.
    All were excellent. The lamb defies description.
    The staff are extremely courteous and well informed on the various dishes.
    The Greek salad was fresh as one could get.
    A truly memorable meal for us.

    awesome place! must visit. The food is delicious and so is the service. They stayed open for us even though it was late. The ambiance is beautiful. It does feel like you leave Nanaimo for an hour or so. Its in a beautiful house . Beautifully decorated. Really good food!!! Ordered the Garlic shrimp and the seafood entree. Very romantic atmosphere!

    What a beautiful spot for such a mediocre restaurant. The night started off well, we we’re greeted right away and seated near the kitchen, the candles were lit and the server was friendly. The food however was not up to snuff. I ordered the roast lamb with roasted potatoes and greek salad. The salad was oily, the lamb and potatoes were so salty I couldn’t eat them – it was like having a salt lick for dinner.

    I have found my new go to place to eat! Fantastic. Service was awsome our water glass never made it to empty once, food was so good right down to the rice, cooked to perfection. Owners were very nice and welcoming. Love the decor, very relaxing, only issue was the loadness, they need to hang plants or something to quiet the sound reflection levels in the the place so everyone can enjoy the music…was waiting for plates to break and someone call out OPA….really amazing!!! I do hope they keep up the great food and service, far to many places do not. Many thanks to the owners and the chefs Loved it all!!

    We had dinner last night at Asteras – wonderful meal, wonderful service, wonderful setting! We were even given desert on the house with no explanation or reason we could see. Particularly nice considering it was a special occasion celebrated.
