Had diner with two young kids. Atmosphere is really easy going, salmon was a little dry and the kids meal had too much garlic in it. But decent food and relaxed atmosphere.

They offer a sweet location and with close proximity to the water you’d expect much better. Had the mussels they were over cook and fishy tasting. Everyone else was also unhappy with their meals. We likely won’t return.

This is the best restaurant around, from Nanaimo, Tofino through Cambell River. We never ate such good seafood, especially calamari. Need to be there at least once and I'm sure you'll return.

This is one of our favourite places we found to eat on Vancouver Island. The Clam platter is a must. You will need to be hungry. Everything is fresh and tastes delicious. We ate here twice and were not disappointed.

Tried dinner menu, but we were disappointed with overall experience. Meals were oily and over cooked, service was fair while the bill was way to high. Keep looking, you'll probably find something better.
