We had a very nice dinner at Asteras. The restaurant is in a lovely old house, nicely decorated. Service was quite good, we appreciated being fit in without a reservation on an obviously busy night. I had the lamb souvlaki, it was very good even...More

Showed up without a reservation on a super busy right and the owner worked his magic and found us a table, grateful. We has a wonderful meal. Specials were amazing. Service was 5 stars. You should spoil yourself and try their featured dessert.

I have been to this restaurant a few times now and took some visiting friends this week. As usual we were not disappointed. All dishes exquisitely prepared and service excellent!

Just go! If you love Greek food, this is THE restaurant to go to. Roast lamb is to die for. Service is excellent and they make excellent suggestions.

Have had lunch there and the service as well as the meals were excellent! We were there as a group and everyone really enjoyed their lunch. Te restaurant is an older 3 storey home in the old quarter of Nanaimo, atmosphere is wonderful.

Always a delicious meal at Asteras. They really know how to cook meats. Atmosphere is friendly and unobtrusive and the owner always stops by your table to say welcome and enjoy. One of my favourites. I have had many dinners and lunches here.

Email the restaurant or call directly. Trip Advisor isn't the place to ask a specific question of the restaurant and expecting an accurate answer by a previous customer.

Hello, I have not had either of these items at Asteras so I'm sorry I cannot help you with your questions. My best suggestion would be to have spoken with the wait staff/manager of your concerns/questions.
