We went to Alexandra's in Nanaimo yesterday before going to the Theater. It is a small place, family operated, clean and cozy. The staff is young but keen on learning. having been in the business for a very long time, I can highly recommend Alexandra's...for a nice evening out. We ordered a bottle of Chianti Melini which although only a couple years old was excellent You have to pour your own which was just fine with us. For starters we ordered the Shrimps in a Marinara sauce, very tasty. I had the Lamb Osso Bucco and my wife the Chicken Souvlaki also delicious. The food was hot, well presented . The service attentive and friendly. For dessert I had some Vanilla Ice Cream with Grand Marnier. I nice finish on a great dinner. They have a good selection of wines which are very reasonably priced. Together with a generous tip you are looking at around $80 per person which was very reasonable for what we had ordered. The Chef/Owner? even came out to check on his customers which was a nice touch. We will definitely go back there again soon.More

The food was average. Flavours were weak, the Greek salad barely dressed with almost no seasoning. Greek and Indian combination is weird.

Googled best salad in Nanaimo and Alexandra's Bistro came up. I had the small Greek salad and the hummus with pita. Absolutely delicious. Husband chose lamb souvlaki, which was tender and tasted. The service was excellent and the servers so charming. Will return.

A go-to for casual nights out or special occasions, whether your looking to dine out of pick-up! We’ve had some of the best Greek food we’ve ever had at this restaurant. I try to order new dishes each time to mix it up, always finding...new flavour favourites!!! Last night I ordered the Vitello Marsala - the portion alone noteworthy, offering me 3 course luxury. Lamb is cooked to perfection, some of the creamiest Alfredo sauce I’ve had. 10 out of 10 will go again Perfect amount of garlic 👌 Chef / owner came out to greet us, check on our food and thank us for coming in. That’s service!!!More

The food is soooooo good! This is our favourite restaurant in town. Delicious food, friendly staff and reasonably priced. I fully recommend! I usually get the prawn slovaki and my kids get the prawn fettuccine. The cheesecake is amazing too!

Wow was I amazed coming here again! The last time I went, which was also my fist time, I had a great time with even amazing food/service. I’ve got to say the most recent visit was just as exceptional! Our waitress, Kiera I believe, was...the sweetest and she accommodated all our requests as well as concerns due to dietary restrictions. In the end of our meal, she also brought out a complimentary dessert which was delicious!! Not only would i recommend this place for the food, especially the calamari, which I’ve never had it as good as here, but also for the amazing service during a very busy night. Also make sure to place a reservation, especially if you’re planning to go during the weekend. I saw a few turned away since the restaurant was packed.More

My daughter is in her mid twenties and we have been going to Alexandras since she was a little girl. The Moussaka is fabulous and so is everything else. Alexandras is a special little gem and the staff and ower obviously get along and treat...each other well, which is imprtant to us. We're so pleased Alexandras survived the pandemic. Each time we have gone in we have been greeted and treated with warmth and excellent service.More
