good value

This restaurant is a fitting adjunct to a very well run hotel. The restaurant provides good diner style Canadian fare well prepared and tasty. The staff gives prompt, friendly service and is knowledgeable about the Port Alberni area. We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner and breakfast.

Located in the Best Western - simple and straight-forward, decent food with basic/usual veggie options. Friendly staff and willing to accommodate dietary needs where possible.

The reviews on this restaurant were really good so we decided to stay at the hotel and eat here rather then head out in the rain to find another place to eat. The restaurant is a very bright family style restaurant, softer lighting would help set a nicer ambiance, although most of the clientele were seniors,so maybe the bright lighting... More

Food was good, staff was welcoming and dessarts yummy. I had dinner and the food was wonderful, great portions and the desserts lovely. In the morning the coffee was hot and the breakfast was very nice as well. Again the staff was wonderful and often checked back to see if anything more was needed.

I come here regularly with staff. It's a nice place that's easy to get a large table. The food is consistent, not fancy but decently prepared.

Stamps is a Cafe. Not fine dining. But the food and service were excellent. We met some friends here at their recommendation as they often eat here. Coming from Alberta I wanted some "fresh local fish". Not disappointed.

Stamps Cafe, located in the Barclay Best Western Hotel is a bright, comfortable restaurant offering a varied menu and excellent service. As we are local, we usually visit the restaurant for lunch. They have a wonderful seafood chowder, some really great salads and a good selection of burgers and sandwiches. My favourite is the mushroom veggie burger, usually ordered with... More

We had breakfast at Stamps Cafe...it was an average meal. One consisting of eggs, bacon and toast, the other was pancakes and eggs. Service was good, prices reasonable...only beef...it's in the Best Western Hotel building and there is no sign outside saying where it is. Great if you are a local, not so good if you are passing through looking... More
