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.

We live here and when we feel like a real treat for Breakfast, this is the place. Huge Breakfasts! The eggs Neptune has eggs on a crab cake slathered in seafood hollandaise...OMG!!! Even Chipmunk bread toast will fill a logger! Lunch can be a Prime Rib Burger or any great sandwich. Just a great friendly little bistro with big portions,... More

Every time I go there I never disappointed. Quality of food is constant and service is always very professional and efficient. Try their large selection of Bennies you will love them.

Recommend this stop on the way to or from Tofino/Ucluelet or if in town in Port Alberni. Large tasty burgers, good Neptune Benedict's, excellent fish tacos, and good prices. Friendly service and quick delivery from the kitchen.

Stopped for a breakfast/lunch with my 15 year old son on the way home from Tofino. He had a blueberry smoothie, omelette, hash browns and toast. I had French toast. Food was well prepared, looked good and tasted better. Great service, too. We'll stop in again.

We stopped there for lunch on our way to Tofino. That day for some reason they were closing the place early, (it was Monday, around 3pm) but they still served us. The quality of the food was great, we noticed that the corn bread was kind of cold inside... maybe frozen and not properly heated? Anyways, the service was great... More
