We have lived in the Comox Valley for five years. Martine's is where we always take visiting relatives & friends. The rack of lamb is to die for! Always! My parents were in town Sunday. Of course they had to go to Martine's. It was packed. Seems the secret of the Valley is out but mgmt. hasn't adjusted yet. Only... More

Good Lord, the food is never a disappointment. It has such a nice feel and ambience, love the outdoor deck. And the fact it that it is so close to the water and you can walk off your meal after dinner if you so choose! The service is always good and the servers are excellent at knowing the wine list,...

Martines is a neighbourhood treasure (mostly undiscovered by the rest of the Valley) It has style, panache and surprise, surprise - great food ! Their rack of lamb is world class (TDF)

This place was recommended by our uncle who retired in Comox, in his mind, this is the only place that has good food. It was not disappointed. The menu was internationally inspired, that is why an Indonesian dish of Nasi Goreng is in the menu. It advertised itself as locally provisioned. I had a 'Steamer' -- steam mussels and clams,...

Lovely little bistro with outdoor patio. Service was so friendly and accomodating. The food was excellent. We all started with the fresh Cortes Island mussels - they were outstanding, cooked to perfection and just the right amount. Had the special seared Ahi Tuna which again was prepared perfectly with a wonderful rissoto, very flavourful. The seafood liguini which the others... More

We chanced upon this bistro when we were holidaying in Comox. It was a Sunday evening, dinnertime, and we were walking around town, so we thought, why not try this place? Its location is appealing, in a revamped older house near the marina. There is outdoor seating separated from indoors by retro garage doors. The sun was setting when we... More

I have eaten here every time (20) I visit Comox. This has to be one of the best restaurants in BC. Both location and food quality. Outdoor seating on a summer night is to die for.

Happened to come across Martine's and we were happy that we did. Warm welcoming atmosphere, and good food. Dinner portions were a nice size, so that there was room for dessert!
