Stopped in for lunch as it seemed to be a popular local spot. Orderd the special, bean and bacon soup with bannock. Bannock was very good...but the soup was terrible. Basically it was boiled bacon to make the broth ..with the strips of heavily fatted, little meat bacon left in...and one, only one, small red kidney bean to be found.... More

I was here while waiting for the bus back to Victoria. The staff were wonderful, and I had a great breakfast! They were friendly about me taking my time, and happy to wrap up a sandwich to go before I left. I'd visit it when you're in town.

Loved this little place. Waitresses are nice and it is a charming place to go for a casual dinner. They make great Mexican food.

Tia's had only been open a while, and is still in the growing stages. Good Mexican and Canadian food: lots of it. Limited menu for someone who is "gluten free" or a Celiac. The only draw back, is that it doesn't stay open for dinners right now, closes at 530. Come on Summer when it will stay open longer.

Went here for lunch - had a great lunch and the service was pleasant and timely. Nice, friendly small town atmosphere - the place appeared to be full of local residents as they all knew one another. Will be back again during my stay in Port McNeil.

Small and boxy but the window walls really open up the cafe. The food was delicious and our sever always had a big smile.

We went here with our family. It is very casual but the tacos were fantastic! Not really romantic, just good tacos very close to the ferry.

We used to come to Bobanees alot. Last time we were in Port McNeill we decided to give Tia's a try. We found the service was slow and did not appreciate having water spilled all over the table and on to one of our party. When we ordered our meal we were told that they had run out of our... More

The service is about the same as always and that was poor. Had to bring our meal to the cash register since the waitress didn't come back to our table for about half hour and there was only 2 other tables. But there menu has nothing on it. Not 1 salad couldn't even eat had to watch my family eat.... More
