Lefty's had other than your ordinary menu with delicious salads and slightly unusual combinations. I enjoyed it very much. Very reasonably priced.

Went here twice, once for breakfast and once for lunch. The food was delicious and varied for vegetarians and gluten intolerant like me. Would definitely recommend this location! Also went to leftys in qualicum.. Not nearly as nice!

Had lunch here with our family....loved the food here-quesadilla, pizzas, a kid's pizza, broiled avocado with colourful tortilla chips, Tuscan chicken wrap, and their signature dessert nirvana. Everything was fresh. Highly recommended! We were so satisfied we came back for breakfast the next morning and it was wonderful! Sat outside in the patio as the air is better than inside.

Came here for lunch with my mother in law and my two young kids. It was very nice. They have a big menu, lots of choices, good kids menu, quick service, friendly staff. We all really enjoyed it. Kids devoured their pizzas and salads, (house salad was very nice), I enjoyed my Thai wrap. MIL enjoyed the pulled pork sandwich.... More

This was our second time dining at Lefty's in Parksville. Both times my meal was average----this time I had the seafood jambalaya and last time was Salt Spring Island mussels. The meals were just okay in my opinion....I would not order either 1of these dishes again. We also had the coconut prawns for a starter and they were okay too,... More

The food was good, staffing good and they had a gluten free menu - what more can you want? We had an early dinner here last night and there was a good range of food, nice atmosphere and my dietary requirements were easily accommodated. A nice change given the difficulties I have had in other parts of Vancouver Island! good... More

We went while on vacation to celebrate my son's 9th birthday - 2 adults and 3 boys - 6, 9 and 11. One key to choosing Leftys was the high rating on TripAdvisor and the second was the fact that the Manager has been responding - clearly they care about the customer. And the service lived up to the suggestion... More

We recently ate here for breakfast around 10:30 am. Staff was friendly but our experience was they were very slow. It took awhile to order breakfast and even longer for our food ( 45 minutes ) and I am not exaggerating! The restaurant was not busy so I don't know what happened since we have eaten here before.

Glad you enjoyed the breakfast but disappointed in your experience. Not knowing which day it was, I can only offer an apology and an assurance that it will be brought up as a reminder to stay on our game by delivering the quality of service that we intend. More
