We arrived minutes before closing but the wonderful waitress gave us full service. The fish tacos were indeed the best - not full of heavy fried batter but lightly dusted with spices. The salad with wild salmon was delicious and huge - even though it was the "smaller" size. Go there!

We stopped in on our way from visiting the island from the road to Bamfield. What a cute restaurant. The service was great and the food was great. Fresh and fully satisfying. I had the seafood salad and my husband had the halibut taco. We wish there are more bristo's like this. I thought it was a cafe type rest... More

Came here for breakfast and the seafood Benny is absolutely incredible! The food as well as the service were both amazing. This is definitely the place for breakfast while in Port Alberni

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here August 2nd on our way from Victoria to Ucluelet. We dined on the patio - a little crowded, but a nice venue. The service was great and our food arrived quickly. We shared the calamari and the chef's salad and were impressed by the quality of both. We would visit again!

We took my parents here for dinner, having reserved an outside table in advance (they are often full!) Their outdoor patio is pleasant and the tables are far enough apart that you can actually have a conversation without hearing every other table! The restaurant itself is also nicely decorated. The ribs were lovely - great flavour and falling off the... More

Had brunch with some friends and the setting outside was great, the service was great, the company of friends was great, not so much the food. The ham was dry and looked old, the fried potatoes were cold and not fully cooked, the eggs were good though, that's about it. My friends didn't say much about their food, so no... More

I have just had a great fish taco lunch. The portion of two juicy tacos with salad were tasty and savoury good looking. Pescadore bistro is a fine eatery; I highly recommend it!

Stopped for a quick lunch on our way to Tofino. Parking was plentiful and when we went into the restaurant we found it very inviting. The menu was great, lots or items with varied price range. I would make it a stop if we are in Port Alberni

We stopped by on a Sunday lunchtime and were fortunate to get a table (it's not a big place). The sign outside advertises 'Best fish tacos' and I would have to say I agree. Mean fish and chips as well. Service was friendly, the ambience colourful and the prices reasonable.
