“Excellent local restaurant”

Friends recommended Lefty's to us and we weren't disappointed. Fun atmosphere, exceptionally friendly staff and delicious food. As well, we really enjoyed the bookstore that is next door.

“Greatest burgers in town”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 9, 2011

Nice upbeat casual restaurant. Nice variety of simple fare but the burgers are definitely a hit. I have dined at Lefty's in Parksville and Qualicum Beach. Both do a great job of their entres. Service has always been friendly and efficient. They also do a good job catering to families and prices are reasonable for the quality of food.

“Great staff- Great food. Why go anywhere else??”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

I have just moved from Ontario. Tested most of the restaurants in the area and Leftys is by far, the best tasting for the least money. Pizza is to die for !!! Try the Montreal.

“Good food, nice atmosphere”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 24, 2011

For a restaurant in a strip-mall (but most of Parksville is like this!) this is pretty darn good. They do a nice job of creating a quirky but warm west-coast atmosphere. I have been here a couple of times before and always enjoyed the food and service. I recommend the Nirvana for dessert.
