Find more information about Nanaimo - Dining
Friends and I went to Basque Restaurant in Downtown Nanaimo the other night- it was awesome! They specialize in spanish influenced cuisine. Basque is housed in somewhat of a landmark building - it was home to the Rendezvous Restaurant for many years, which in its day was a Nanaimo hot spot in its own right They featured 'dining under the stars' and the new owners maintained that element-you'll have to see it for yourself to understand.
The service was friendly, but not overly so and the atmosphere was great. Just one more block in the rebuilding of Nanaimo's downtown core.
