Amazing Brunch Spot

Every time I roll into PA, I froth at the mouth in anticipation for brunch at Pescadores. Depending on my mood and the time of day, I tend to go with breakfast. Huevos rancheros, eggs bennys and veggie breakfast burritos stuffed with bacon just seem to get me. If I order from the lunch menu, I... read more

Had lunch with 2 friends and the food was VERY GOOD, we all loved it. The only thing that bothered me was the bathroom, it wasn't that clean, they had 2 glass containers on the back of the toilet that had non-descriptive items inside, one looked like a rotten potatoe and everything was covered with dust, it was quite disgusting....

One of the best places in Port for breakfast or brunch. The omelets are out of this world. The portions are huge, my daughter and I usually share brunch The prices are not too bad. Great service.

We happened to be passing through on our way to Torfino and stopped for lunch because of the quaint looking exterior. We were not disappointed. We were impressed with the friendly and professional wait staff and the quality of the food we ordered. We had heard the fish tacos were very popular and they were tasty (not New Mexico style,...

Stopped in for lunch and had the prawn taco with mexi-salad. Excellent choice, if a bit messy to eat! Prawns cooked perfectly and the mexi-salad was very good, lots of black olives and beans with cheese and tomatoe. Will definately have this again. Have also heard very good things about the eggs benny and plan to come for breakfast very... More

We had driven by this place so many times on the way to Tofino, that it was time to stop in. We had a late lunch on a weekday, so the place was nearly empty. Cozy, warm decor, and a friendly waitress. I had the grilled vegtable sandwich on chipmunk bread. It was rich, garlicky, sloppy, and even my most... More

Have not been there for lunch or dinner but have been there quite a few times for breakfast and I have to say it's easily my favorite place for breakfast. My boyfriend and I have made a few special trips from parksville because we love the eggs Benny. The hollendaise is very well done! Service and wait time has been... More

Stopped in twice now and had the Greek egg Benedict twice! I write this review to tell you it's an amazing, flavourful benny. However, the quinoa side salad was much too salty. The first time I had it, there was nice hints of cumin. But this time the cumin was undetectable which was disappointing because I chose to eat here... More
