We went there for dinner, I had the prawn tacos, my husband had the steak. We both raved to others about how good it was. Went back for breakfast and couldn't believe the huge portions and the great selection. Awesome breakfast!!! Went back again for dinner, a repeat of the first time, except unfortunately my husband's steak was not good... More

We ate outside on a warm fall evening and enjoyed the atmosphere and good service at this restaurant. Three of us had excellent meals and would reorder them. The fourth in our party had the special of the day--a boullibaise soup which he really disliked. He would have sent it back but in the spirit of the evening he simply... More

While vacationing in Port Alberni and visiting family we had a great breakfast here. They quickly and easily accommodated our group of 8. The portions were huge, and reasonable!

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!
