Like the title says, it's a fantastic place and my girlfriend and I stop here every time we pass through Port Alberni. You gotta try the spicy seared tuna, either the steak or the burger. Simply the best tuna I've had in BC.

A very cozy little restaurant with pleasant decor that serves good breakfasts. The service is friendly and the coffee is better than most breakfast places. The food was fresh and tasty. Only negative is the parking lot is a bit tight.

Pescadores is a great local restaurant that caters to all different foods! I normally go there for breakfast and it never disappoints (portions or taste). Make sure you stop by because you don’t want to miss it!

Nothing bad to say. Waitress was nice- not super attentive, but nice. Fish batter is great. Light and crunchy. Tartar sauce is like Kraft from the bottle. Nothing great. Fries not hand cut. Wasn’t as good as we expected, but ok.
