Chat about Nanaimo's best and worst restaurants, and where the best deals are. Visiting? Do your research!
This is a great opportunity for us to exchange useful information about Nanaimo area restaurants.
It's been really difficult to know how to moderate this forum and site, because business owners are understandably upset when someone slanders their operation in this static, public environment. Bad...
I just found out that a new Italian restaurant, La Famiglia ("The Family" in Italian), will open in the location where Wesley Street Cafe was. The owner/chef is Dino, who used to run Maffeo's Ristrante Italiano in town for many years.
The restaurant is currently under renovation, and Dino is...
I am shocked no one has written anything about the best Japanese restaurant in this town, Nori Japanese Restaurant!
Have you dined here?
I go there quite frequently and have always had a fantastic time, food is exceptional, service is awesome and the vibe is happening!
If you're a sushi...
New Irish pub at the train station appears to be open finally.
I have been looking forward to this for a long time, and the food sounds good, and the collection of beers, however, after looking at the prices on the menu, I just about died..
Anyone been here yet?
Just wondering if anyone has heard about a new Vegan restaurant in "the cliff"'s old location?
My wife and I tried the Namul Korean Restaurant on Rutherford Rd. We both thought the food was really good. They brought us some free starters to try, a Korean omelet and some lotus root. Being a vegetarian there was lots to choose from. We ordered some Kimchi as a side and loved it so much we...

We ate there recently and loved it. Try the avocado & banana spring rolls.
A great variety of fresh, fine tasting offerings: soups, salads, panini, stir fries, appies, sushi and noodle soup bowls - (salivating now)
We really enjoyed the food we had...
Seems that The Courts has closed. Soon after Muddy Waters. Anyone care to comment?
If you have a favorite restaurant in Nanaimo, go support it before you can't.
Driftwood Bistro has closed its doors.
I don't think this is so much a sign of bad economic conditions any more as it is a variety of other factors (and not necessarily in this case but in general):
I believe the projected opening date is mid-March, although nothing is set in stone with a new build. For those that have never been to Brown's, they have great drink prices ($4.00 social sodas, beer, etc) and a cool vibe. This will do well. And thank God I don't have to go downtown to eat ever...
We tried this new restaurant on Aug 10th so they had only been open for 5 days. I have to say I was very excited about the location and felt this was something Nanaimo needed. There was 6 adults and 2 kids. Unfortunately the location was the best part about it. The decor is modern and it was...
With my complaints about loud music in restaurants and my recent review of the Keg, I thought I should put in a favorable review next so I don't get a reputation as an old curmudgeon. :)
So here is a real gem of a restaurant.
My wife and I stopped in at Huong Lan a few weeks ago. This is a...
How about trained staff--really trained to be servers-the profession recognized, not someone looking for a job with no training, no memory and no appropriate skills. How about giving these folks at least a weeks training on the menu and the focus of the restaurant.
How about a focus in the...
Just wondering if anyone has tried this new place out yet? The chef is quite renowned, so I am looking forward to hearing some reviews.
I heard today that Kelsey's is closing after December 16th. Can anyone substantiate this?
The restaurant scene has been calm for a few months - hopefully it stays that way...

I dream of owning a bar/restaurant in the down town...
Couple of weeks ago, I had a Montreal smoked meat sandwich at Danforth Deli & Grill downtown. It was very good and I am looking forward to trying more.
The owner was very friendly and we had a great chat.
And, very unusual for me as a professional Internet marketer, but they actually have a...
I am dying to try the Hilltop Bistro. The Markt was exceptional, and I trust the vision of the young man who has moved into the full restaurant realm. I checked out the menu online, and it looks amazing! Has anyone tried this place out yet?
