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.

We are open for dine-in, but we have some safety measurements implemented, as suggested by health authority and work safe, BC, as follows:
• No cash, and we sanitize the machine in between each use.
• Guests pour their own water with a jug at the table after pre-pouring water glasses at the bar.
• Servers leave food and drinks at the end of the table and let guests pass them after the server has stepped away.
• We’ve removed salt and pepper shakers, sauce dispensers, candles, and other tabletop items.
• If customers ask to take unfinished food with them, we provide packaging and let the customer put the food into the container (we don’t take the plates and package the food for them at the moment)
Cleaning and hygiene
• Established handwashing procedures for all front-of-house staff. WorkSafeBC handwashing signage is provided to communicate good handwashing practices. Posted handwashing signs near all sinks.
• We have sanitizer for customers and staff at entrance and after checkout.
• We have increased cleaning between seatings. Tables, vinyl or laminated menus, and vinyl/leather/metal seats are wiped when tables turn.
• We clean bathrooms thoroughly and on a more frequent basis.
• We have greatly enhanced cleaning of all frequent touchpoints including walls, light switches in bathroom, tables, chairs, barstools, condiments, coat hooks, restrooms, doors including front door, restroom door, and kitchen.
• We have developed a cleaning schedule and assign and train a person who is responsible for completing cleaning tasks and ensuring these tasks are completed.
