Good food and atmosphere

Gourmet food and good service culminate in a fine dinning experience. The waiters are very good at what they do.

Martine's has become our 'go-to' restaurant and we were delighted to see that they were featuring a Sunday Prime Rib dinner. The restaurant was full and hopping the day after Valentine's and we were lucky to get a reservation. The servers were hustling to attend to everyone and were cheery despite the hectic pace. We usually start with a bowl... More

Took my wife to Martines to finally check it out. We both ordered the specials, a rib eye steak for me and salmon for her. My steak was tasty but extremely tough. I mean every single bite was tough. My teeth hurt after eating it! The mashed potatoes and vegetables tasted good but the meal was presented warm, not hot.... More

It is sad that this restaurant let being a good place to eat go to its head. Anytime we came to Comox we always went to Martine's we have not been there for over a year. The prices kept sneaking up and the menu was stagnant. The management treated customers as though they should be grateful they were allowed to... More

Have been here numerous times and we love it every time. Atmosphere, great food, excellent service, decent wine list, what is not to like. Try the tiger prawns or the pan seared snapper. As a matter of fact, try anything on the menu.

We were given a gift certificate for $150.00 and were looking forward to a evening out and dinner at this restaurant based on all the good reviews. Went on a Monday night and the restaurant wasn't too busy. My husband started with a cocktail and I with a glass of wine. We ordered our appetizers and our meal at the... More

Good selection of local ingredients, and lots of choice. Nice building with some great doors, which look like they belonged to the former use of the building.

We visited Martines on Nov for a friends birthday celebration. Our group was eight for dinner and all fairly mature! My clams and mussels appy was excellent, the main Tuna dish from the fresh sheet was just average. The service was terribly slow and inattentive albeit friendly. Other meal comments were variable but all agreed that the service was poor.... More
