Our Story

Welcome To Eve Olive

Eve Olive features locally sourced and organic ingredients when possible, and offer dishes from various cultural influences, using 100% plant-based ingredients, delivering savoury tastes and creative dishes, each dish available in a tapa size or a very generous entree portion.  This is the first Nanaimo vegan restaurant to offer wines, beers and cocktails.  Cozy up by candlelight in the winter, or enjoy the patio on a sunny summer day.  Dishes are handcrafted, plant-based, and made with love, offering 80% gluten free options, without sacrificing taste, presentation or nutrition.  Come visit Nanaimo’s newest gathering place on Rutherford Hill, at Rutherford Boardwalk, open Wednesday through Sunday evenings.

We carry a selection of wines, primarily from local wineries, local draft beer and modern cocktails, including liquor from our local distillery.

Planted based food at Nanaimo's premiere Vegan restaurant.
