Came here for lunch, the server was very nice, attentive . I ordered the calamari and Cesar salad. The calamari was cooked perfectly. The Cesar salad was way too overdressed. I informed the server and she fixed the problem . After that the Cesar salad was delicious and I definitely enjoyed the fact that it was a bit spicy .... More

We had no idea what to expect when we entered the restaurant. We just chose one while we were walking around, and kind of figured it would have typical "Diner Food". What we ate was delicious and definitely not diner food! My husband had lamb and I had a cheese and ham melt on pita bread. Both meals were absolutely... More

This is a great place to enjoy a delicious lunch. It's first impression is misleading but a great place for a variety of options. Great lunch options, superb fries, and delicious, homemade coleslaw.

The best oatmeal and granola we've ever tasted. I would go back to Nelson just for the granola. Heaven!

My husband and I each ordered the Kronos dinner ($18 CAD), which includes a greek salad with 2 pita triangles and hummus and tahziki, along with the entree of 1 spanakopita, 1 spanakopita that was just 4 cheeses, roasted potato wedges, roasted veggies and some orzo pasta that claimed to be baked but didn't taste that way (it was still...

The Diner has been a stable choice for many years for us. We recently had a meal there after an absence of more than a year. Both menu choices the fish and chips and a greek plate were prepared to perfection. Despite the crowd the service was friendly and efficient. We'll keep coming back.

My husband had the feta,red pepper, mushroom poutine, and couldn't get enough. Sooo good with a corona beer. I ordered the Greek Sampler and was awed. Greek salad was scrumptious. Fresh made hummus. We licked the plates clean. Never disappointed with this place

At first glance it seems strange a diner would be a place for an evening drink, but this was the exception. The evening menu consisted of fine Greek dishes at surprisingly low prices. I had the leg of lamb and was genuinely surprised at the quality of the meat and the speed of the service on a moderately busy evening.... More

We have been going to this diner for years and always make a point of visiting on our trips to Nelson, which is why our experience this past week was so disappointing. It wasn't so much that our meals weren't very good (5 of the 8 were fine), rather it was the poor attitude we were greeted with and the... More
