Our Mission


Located in the Harbour City, Fiddlehead Bistro is proud to call Nanaimo BC its home for the past 2 years.  Ever since the beginnings of this Nanaimo Restaurant, the Fiddlehead Bistro has been on a mission to provide the most local, organic and freshest ingredients to its customers.  Our humble restaurant is always wanting to insure that we maintain a highest quality of food, beverages and most importantly service to our customers from Nanaimo and abroad.

Our menu provides our patrons with local seafood and a revolving menu to best suit what is in season on Vancouver Island.  Our food is a perfect balance of local flavors to compliment a west coast fine dining experience.  To compliment the menu we ensure a wide selection of locally crafted beers and wines to our customers.

“Good food is very often, even most often, simple food.”

– Anthony Bourdain, Kitchen Confidential
