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

We stopped at Pescadores Bistro on our way through Port Alberni, on our way to Tofino. We had lunch. My husband had the mango salad (delish) and I had the yogurt with muesli and fruit. Both were delicious. The service was friendly, efficient and fast. On our way back down island, we stopped again, hoping to be as impressed as... More

So, even though we waited 45mins for our food, it was quite tasty. And good portions. Will remember next time that the noon Sun rush is not really the time to show up. Would come back again.

Stopped for lunch while in Port Alberni for a week recently on business. It was snowing so the restaurant was mostly empty. There is not a large seating area and I have since heard that it can often be a challenge to get a table last-minute so we were fortunate. Food was very good. Service was friendly and carefully catered... More

Was very happy with the service decoration and the food, we both had the fish tacos which came with a delicious side salad, which was very unusual and very good, would definitely go back if ever back in Port Alberni.

We had lunch on our way home from the Chase and Warren winery. The tables were full when we entered, but were sat at the big table even though there were only two of us. Service was quick, efficient, and pleasant. The food offerings were varied, and when our waffle chicken clubs came, they were delicious, really happy to have... More

We went for a lunch while our new car purchase was being arranged. Went there on recommendations from Van Isle Ford. Glad we did but wished we could have spent more time there. Food was well presented and substantial portioned so we did not have to go to Rotten Ronnies after. Had their seafood bennie special and it was wonderful.... More
