“Affordable Ambrosia!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

Without a doubt, the best restaurant I've been to in Comox! Lots of local flavours from Island farms and nearby waters! Combining excellent service in a warm, hospitable atmosphere with outstanding fare from an accomplished, innovated chef (always a few weird and wonderful items on their fresh sheet). Just stopped in for some Komo Gway oysters, a load of Salt Spring mussels and a glass of divine Beaufort wine (hey that rhymes). If you're there for dinner check out the Tannadice farms double pork chop...mmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm!

“Don't judge a restaurant by it's location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

This restaurant has a really strange location beside a Shell gas station and an inn on a busy road. Inside the decor is lovely and there is a really nice ambience. We enjoyed delicious, yummy meals (salmon on salad, salmon on cedar planks, and seafood chowder) and excellent service. Really, a great find.

“Top of the list”

We tried Avenue Bistro for lunch recently and found the food great, especially the seafood chowder, the service friendly and the decor excellent. We'll be back to try other menu items.

“Avenue Bistro - the place to dine”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

Avenue Bistro has a great menu that highlights produce and meats form the Comox Valley. A great selection of fresh local oysters, friendly and efficient staff and a very diverse menu with something for everyone. Family friendly too!

“Pleasant Surprise”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Went with my son and his new wife and her parents . The décor and service were a 4 star plus . The food was well prepared and nicely presented and worthy of the price . Beautiful views of the Straight of Georgia and the Rockies from the front windows and patio of restaurant . Don't hesitate to try if in the vicinity .
