This restaurant came highly recommended by friends, it was an enjoyable experience! We made reservations for a Saturday night & glad we did, as it was busy. Got a nice table close to the bar & our server was very friendly & helpful with explaining the menu. We both took the seafood pasta special which came with a salad/garlic bread.... More

Steak and eggs were good, she had bagel and loved it. Service was very good, seating was fine, atmosphere suitable for breakfast...or other meals. Prices as expected, reasonable. Right in downtown, street parking. Will go again.

Yep! I've never liked pizza since my last fave in Argentina but as soon as I had a bite of Leftys homemade thin crust bubbly dough, topped with their "Mancino" and "Hot Stuff", my honey and I kept coming back for more almost every weekend now. The ladies that served us were very friendly despite how busy it gets sometimes.... More

Having happily lived for a few years in Comox, I regularly stopped in Qualicum Beach enroute or simply as a destination to eat the most delicious pancakes you can find! This is a busy place during breakfast hours on any given weekend, but the staff work their butts off and the owner is often in the store greeting and bussing... More

We were there for my husband's birthday on Sept 11 2014 and I had their Blueberry salmon with white rice and veggies and my husband had peach cod with quinoa and veggies. Excellent quality, could be a little bit more rice on the plate for the money we paid, but overall the taste and quality and the service was great.... More

The food is tasty and fresh. The staff is friendly. This restaurant is right in the town of Qualicum and my daughter and I come here often for breakfast or lunch. And it is always good.

This is a lovely local restaurant (another in Parksville). All desserts for the two locations are made on this site. I've been to each location several times; service is quick and courteous; good selection of menu items, and great desserts.

The place was pretty busy when we went for our mid-week dinner. The waitress was friendly and the service was prompt. What wasn't good, however, was the food. My wife had the fish and chips and I had the burger and chips. From memory they pride themselves on their fried potatoes, but really they were terrible. I can't remember the... More

I am sorry you were disappointed with your food and hope you expressed your disappointment to your server as our policy would have been to replace it or not charge you for it. As to the potatoes, I apologize for the quality of that product which is made daily and prepared to order. We have reviewed the preparation process to... More
