We love this restaurant. The moussaka is our favourite. The souvlaki and Greek salad also so good. We look forward to eating here whenever we are in Nanaimo! Staff are so nice too

I went to Alexandra’s Bistro last night with my friends and it was fantastic!! I always come back with new friends and they always love it! This restaurant never disappoints and I am so glad I am a regular here! I ordered the calamari as...an appetizer and it was so fresh and tasty. For my main meal I got the Kleftiko (lamb shoulder) with a Greek salad and it was so flavorful, fresh and delicious!! This restaurant is such a good place to come to if you want Greek, Italian or some Indian food. The owner is super nice and friendly and the service is excellent! I also was super delighted when I received a complimentary slice of cheesecake from the chef! This restaurant is the best in town and definitely bring your friends and family here!!More

Everything was absolutely fantastic. Bobby was very accommodating for the pick up time for our order. Also added spicy carrots which also were great! Looking forward to some fettuccini alfredo pasta next time too.

We were Happy to support Alexandra's throughout the pandemic and extremely pleased to see they were able to remain open. We have been dining in or take out ever since Alexandra's Bistro first opened. It is our favorite Greek Restaurant in Nanaimo. The food is...very delicious with generous portions. Our favorite is the Moussaka but enjoy many of the other fantastic dishes as well. Nice atmosphere very friendly staff and owner/chef Bobby(sp?) makes sure you are enjoying your meal. Thank you for such Great food and service over the years. Look forward to seeing you soon.More
