Great restaurant! Love the warm atmosphere and the view. Staff has always been friendly and the steak wrap is so so so good. I think the only down side here is the plain rice/bean sides but that seems to be a common thing at most Mexican restaurants. I suppose the side is just not for me. Other then that, no complaints! You must try it at least once.

Nice place with delicious food and a lot of stereotypical Mexican decorations. They also take perfectly care of any allergies or diets.

Awesome service and very tasty food. Had the southwestern burrito, was a bit too saucy but the portions were huge and the ingredients fresh. Will definitely be back. Truly one of Nanaimo's better restaurants. Price was reasonable.

Hadn't been there in years, remembered it well, wanted to enjoy it, liked the staff, but the mains were forgettable and the sides (rice, beans and corn) were actually quite unpleasant. Not likely to try again, unfortunately.

Probably the worst Mexican food I have ever had in terms of flavor. It was so bland. The Mexican corn tasted like it had been microwaved straight out of a green giant can of corn. It was lacking spice and definitely salt. My mom had the special which was a shrimp burrito and a beef tostada. The tostada was good however the shrimp burrito tasted as if the shrimp wasn't even real and smelt fishy. The texture was kind of like rubber. The service was mediocre. However we did complain about the shrimp burrito and the gentleman so kindly removed it from our bill.

My wife and I recently moved here from Ontario and we're anxiously trying the local eateries. Gina's did not disappoint. Service was punctual and friendly, our food came quickly, was steaming hot and very tasty. The homemade deserts were a nice topper to a great meal. We'll definitely make this a regular stop.

I have visited Gina's twice now. Once with colleagues and once with my family and had a great time at both visits. The price - value relation for food is very good, portions are large and the atmosphere of the little colorfull house on the hill is very special. Service personnel was extremely helpful and friendly. We had a ferry to catch and they managed to get our food (appetizers + entrees) read extrafast for us (I havent stopped the time but my guess is +/-15mins.) Will come again on my next visit!
