Our second visit to Lefty's in Qualicum. We had lunch with friends. The food was pretty good but not fabulous enough that I remember what I had.

Having been to the other Lefty's in Parksville and were not disappointed, we decided to give this one a try. A greeting at the door and we were shown to a nice table for two. Ordered coffee and it quickly appeared. An extensive menu followed. My friend ordered soup of the day, which was butternut squash and apple-dark rye bread... More

I read the recent reviews of this restaurant and nearly didn't go because of them. But as this place is well located for the town we decided to give it a go. The server was very friendly and accommodating. Lots of seating and outside patio for summer time. We went for breakfast, a meal I struggle to enjoy out due... More

Our commitment to quality ingredients and the feedback we have received from an overwhelming majority of our guests has led us to choose these products. Our supplier has recently advised us that we could be saving a lot of money by purchasing lesser products. I understand that this is a forum for guests to offer their subjective experience based on... More

I have eaten here a couple of times with family and friends, satisfied every time..

Fresh, well prepared and served. Attentive service. Daughter questioned the 'yellow' colour of her Kale Caeser Salad greens. Server returned with answer from Chef who indicated that the yellow part is the heart of the kale. Her salad was fresh and she enjoyed it thoroughly My husband and grandson (10) each had a delicious burger and I tried to Caeser... More

Recently my wife and I ate at Lefty's in Qualicum. Based on our numerous positive experiences with Lefty's in nearby Parksville, we were expecting a pleasant experience. It turned out not to be so. We were part of a New Years Eve theatre group that had ordered our meals well in advance of the night. In the case of my... More

Mmmmmmm, delicious! I certainly enjoyed the Chestnut, Bacon and Chive soup which was served with a couple of slices of grilled pheasant loaf garlic bread. My husband listened to my "mmmmm" sound each time I put a spoonful of the delicious soup into my mouth.

My boyfriend and I stopped at Lefty's for dinner last weekend. We loved it!! Atmosphere was great. Tables were a great distance apart. Very large menu - I am a vegetarian and there were tons of options for me. I had their veggie burger which was one of the best ones I've ever had. We shared a desert called "Nirvana"... More

We have been here for breakfast/brunch on a few occasions and this place has gone down hill recently. Decor and style is supposed to be modern and "funky." While it's clean and tidy, it's getting tired. We had omelettes for breakfast and sorry we did. Eggs were dry and foamy, bacon cooked to a jerky-like texture, and the cheese topping... More
