Cabernet's closed a few months ago. There is an Indian restaurant there now. I have not heard from anyone who has eaten there.

Enjoyed our meal, portions are great. Service was good, prices are comparable. I'd go back. If you are on a special diet you'd have to ask some questions and do some figuring out yourself but there is plenty to choose from.

The food was fabulous (special steak and lobster dinner & lasagne), dessert was divine (chocolate mousse), and the staff was welcoming and friendly. The decor could use some updating but overall we were very happy with our dinner.

On vancouver island for a vacation - first time in parksville - decided we needed to eat and feed the kids. Found the restaurant on the main strip - based on outside of building - wasn't sure what the experience would be like as it has a dated look. Plus the name made no sense in relation to the food....

This is the last time I will go to this restaurant. On entering the place smelt of mould or mildew or of old age. While the service was good, the owners being very welcoming, the food I received was awful. I had pork schnitzel. There were two large pieces cooked totally differently. I suspect they weren't prepared at the same... More

We decided it was time for a Greek dinner and so we went to Cabernet's. The warm & welcoming hostess (owner) was very appreciated. Comfortable seating with ocean view was great. The kalamari was wonderful....cooked to perfection. The baclava was lovely. Both our waitress and owner checked with us that the music was at a good level and that our... More

We had arranged a romantic meal, sight unseen, at Cabernet's. When we pulled into the parking lot (free parking!), it looked like a horrible dive. We very nearly left, but agreed to at least poke our heads in the door. Very glad we did! The service was just enough and, to my delight, they had Retsina (a spruce resin Greek... More

Went for dinner here on a not very busy rainy October night. Pleasant server, lady who could be one of the owners, not sure of this. Food was good, service as well, decor is a bit beyond funky...sort of a dated Greek/Italian/Canadian hodge podge. Our main issue came when we tried to use our credit cards. Both had worked earlier...

We were in Parksville, BC to see the sand sculptures on display when we stumbled onto this outstanding Greek and Italian restaurant for lunch. The beef and lamb Gyros were outstanding as was the chicken quesadilla. Our only regret was that we were not able to stay in Parksville for dinner. Our waitress was the owner, and she was extremely... More
