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.

Not very authentic, and the refried beans were really weird and just so wrong, despite them apparently being famous for them. Other than that, from an objective standpoint the food was actually decent.

Was expecting it to be amazing due to the misleading reviews below. I wasn't very impressed. Service isn't the greatest. Had the grilled chicken soft tacos. Long waiting times for your food & Food is very bland. Not even the dessert was decent. I've been to way better Mexican restaurants. I would not go back.

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!

I only popped in for a quick snack but I was definitely not disappointed. The salsa was very clearly home-made and it was delicious and noticeably fresh too. Not to mention the staff was so welcoming and kind and made for a wonderful experience! I will surely be going back soon

Environment: 5 the restaurant is super cute and very mexi-chic Service: 4 the staff were very friendly and the food came quickly Drinks: 3 the margarita was so-so and lacked oomph Food: 1-2 We tried the chile relleno which was small and had a square lump of cream cheese partially melted; the chimichanga and the enchilada were just meat with no real flavor or veggies. All in all the food was a disappointment with the cuteness of the place and the great staff.
