Breakfast

My husband had the two eggs his style and I had a veggie omelette. We were both satisfied with our breakfasts. The service was fine. The food was good. The price was average for eating out at breakfast. I think his was $12 and mine was $14.

This is a great place to have lunch or dinner. The view across the bay at Parksville is amazing. The food is very good and so is the service. There is lots of choice on the menu for all tastes. The dining room is not really child friendly. They also do a good job of catering to groups of all... More

Four of us went to the Bayside on Sunday evening to enjoy their Sunday Night Roast Beef Dinner. Our friends had been several weeks before and told us about it and how they had enjoyed it so we all went. The dinner offers a soup or salad, the main course and a dessert. I had the soup and my wife... More

Had a great evening at the Bayside Bistro. The waitress was very friendly and helpful and sat us at a window table overlooking the ocean. They have a good menu to choose from and both my friend and I enjoyed our meals very much.

This restaurant used to have a beautiful buffet and was great for special occasions. The view is still spectacular but now breakfast is al a carte (with only three choices available) and the quality is mediocre. I ordered their "standard breakfast" (two eggs any style w/hashbrowns and bacon, ham or sausage). It was $10. for two poached eggs (done soft... More

I have eaten here several times and always enjoy my meal. There are many excellent choices on the menu and they have great specials. The prices are much lower than all of the other hotel restaurants in the area. You can tell that they use quality ingredients and they have a well trained staff. Most of the servers have worked...

The lady and I headed here for some dinner one night. It was down the road where we stayed, and some of the reviews we read helped in picking this place. There were big expectations, but the results were somewhat underwhelming. The crab cakes were a bit dry and tasted of that carbon filter material you find in a Brita... More

Great view, attentive service and an amazing ocean view. It doesn't matter whether the tide is in or out the view is spectacular from this dining room. The many window tables are prefect but the view is there for all to enjoy. Huge glass windows! I have eaten here many times for both pleasure and business. Dinners have always been... More

A friend and I were dining out on a Saturday night, we chose to go to the Bayside Bistro firstly because the views from the restaurant are beautiful and the vista before you is the whole of Parksville Bay and beach area, with plenty to see and admire.
