“Really good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2014

We stopped in on our way from visiting the island from the road to Bamfield. What a cute restaurant. The service was great and the food was great. Fresh and fully satisfying. I had the seafood salad and my husband had the halibut taco. We wish there are more bristo's like this. I thought it was a cafe type rest stop and much to our delight was a well balanced menu.

Came here for breakfast and the seafood Benny is absolutely incredible! The food as well as the service were both amazing. This is definitely the place for breakfast while in Port Alberni

“Great place to stop”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 6, 2014

My wife and I enjoyed lunch here August 2nd on our way from Victoria to Ucluelet. We dined on the patio - a little crowded, but a nice venue. The service was great and our food arrived quickly. We shared the calamari and the chef's salad and were impressed by the quality of both. We would visit again!

“Nice patio, good food and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 2, 2014

We took my parents here for dinner, having reserved an outside table in advance (they are often full!) Their outdoor patio is pleasant and the tables are far enough apart that you can actually have a conversation without hearing every other table! The restaurant itself is also nicely decorated. The ribs were lovely - great flavour and falling off the bone, the way I like them. Great baked potatoes that came dressed with sour cream, bacon bits and green onions. My husband enjoyed his seafood and sausage dish. They also have nice desserts. The restaurant is on the intersection where you turn right on the road that goes on to the west coast, or turn left to head downtown.
