Once again Martine's delivered - good service, good food, good music, art, and ambiance! All this at a reasonable price. This restaurant consistently pleases.

My 95 year old Mother was coming to town and wanted the family to get together for a nice meal. Not being a big fan of any the fancier restaurants in town, I suggested Martines Bistro. It is not overly fancy here, but more upper stated casual food, The food is plated with good eye appeal. We were a party... More

The location is unassuming but the view is better than you would think and the food is incredible. We even ordered dessert which we never do because we wanted to stay longer and were curious to see if it measured up to main course(halibut) and the appetizer (scallops). It did. Not cheap but worth it for a special occasion.

Over eleven years we have been going to Martine's in Comox and have a very amicable relation with the crew who recognize us every time. After a bit of a delay in visits caused by life, we returned recently and were warmly greeted. This is probably the only place to get Jenever and Biterrballen in BC - maybe Canada. Let... More

The food and service are amazing. The only drawback is that the view isn't as good as the Blackfin (it's blocked by that building) but food and service more than make up for it.

Went here with my wife on our anniversary years ago. Had an Appy, which we asked specifically, did it contain wheat?. We were told that the Appy was safe as it was made with rice. Got the Appy, started eating and realized that it was pasta, asked the waitress, she said "oh yes, it's made of wheat!". My wife's stomach... More

Had a great meal here on more than one occasion. The calamari appetizer was exceptional (possibly the most tender calamari I have ever had) although I urge caution on the size - this is definitely better shared as it is huge! Lovely, attentive service, and very nice food.

The service (Paul) was excellent, the meal was divine and the location all made for a wonderful evening. Paul did a great job making us feel welcome and he introduced us to the people at the table next to us which was sweet! He also recommended a great wine for us to try. The appey steamed mussels and clams, had... More
