For over 25 years, Gina's Mexican Cafe has been a favorite destination for locals, tourists and boating adventurers. Fondly known as the ‘Pink House on the Hill’, Gina's is a popular destination for authentic Mexican cuisine. Located on top of a cliff, easily accessible from the Highway #1 and a short walk from the boat basin, c'mon home to Gina's for a memorable dining experience you won't want to miss.

Gina's Mexican Cafe has great views of Mount Benson in the west and overlooks the Old Island Highway (Terminal Ave) that winds through Nanaimo at the foot of the cliff.

If you've visiting Vancouver Island or driving from Duncan, Ladysmith, Port Alberni, Victoria or Qualicum, let Gina's Mexican Cafe be your first stop for fantastic food, a lively atmosphere, great service and affordable prices.

And did we mention the margaritas? Mmmmm!

Since 1986, the "Pink House On The Hill" has served a fresh and flavourful taste of Mexico that Nanaimo comes home to.

Fresh Tasty Mexican Food

Featuring fresh and tasty foods and catering to many differing palates, we feature traditional chicken and beef favourites (don't miss the "chipotle specialities"). We take great pride in offering the finest in West Coast seafoods. We have also offered a variety of vegetarian and vegan dishes throughout the years, and will do our best to accommodate special diets and allergy requirements. Our longtime efforts to adhere to the "100 mile diet" philosophy has resulted in much of our dairy and protein foods being sourced fresh from the local region. Make sure to sample the 'Fish Tacos' or 'Southwest Seafood Burritos'.
