We live on the West Coast of Vancouver Island and drive by the sign, "Best Fish Tacos" every time we pass through Port Alberni. Reading the reviews on Trip Advisor, I was happy that I finally had time to stop. A quaint and eclectic restaurant welcomed us with a very happy and helpful hostess. That's where it starts going downhill.... More

Love the atmosphere and the friendly staff,. .Food is nicely presented and yummee. Been trying different breakfasts, all good, favourite is the egg benny. Oh and french toast. When patio is open, nice to sit outside a truly nice experience with all the beautiful flowers. Nice place to stop on your way to the west coast, going and coming, but... More

Brunch on Sunday. Our table tried 3 different kinds of Eggs Benny. No-one was disappointed in the least. Pan fried potatoes were really nice, and they pour a decent cup of coffee. Good, friendly service in an unpretentious setting.

To start off the staff is always friendly and welcoming. I am a picky eater but never have trouble ordering off the menu. If your looking for a great sandwich the turkey club is awesome, and the size is big. To top it off the turkey is real. Today I tried the ham and swiss Panini, I was surprised by... More

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 ALWAYS go with fish... 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....
