A real gem of a place, with a reasonably priced menu offering nice options to suit all tastes. Excellent service ... all round a safe bet place to call at if driving through Port Alberni.

“Excellent! Highly recommended”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

My husband and I had dinner here July 29. The service was great, the server very helpful. The food was delicious, attractively served and very reasonably priced. We will be returning and letting all our friends know about this restaurant!

“Right on the water”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2013

Lovely dinner right on the water in the harbour quay. It was very windy out so windsurfers and kitesurfers to watch! Cheerful service and reasonable prices. Nice patio, although we sat inside because it was too breezy outside that night for the seniors in our party. All 5 in our group enjoyed the meal - two had lamb and it was delicious.

“Nice for lunch on a sunny day”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Driving from Tofino to Nanaimo, it made sense to stop for lunch in Port Alberni, and this was the nicest place we could see. Sitting at a table outside, looking at the water, eating burgers and drinking beer, we had no complaints. The salmon in the salmon burgers was wild and locally-sourced, which pleased us. There was no draft beer, just bottled, but the selection of that was pretty good.
