Went with local friends for dinner. As there are only a couple restaurants in this small town, it seems, I wasn't expecting too much. But our meals were all fantastic. Highly recommended.

We ate at Pass'n Thyme a few times during our trip to Alert Bay and each time the food was delicious. The staff was always friendly and accommodating and we had a great experience here!

Very good fish and chip and a tasty Thai Shrimp Salad Roll. Fast service on a busy Thursday Night. Lots of space between tables.

Beautiful view with wonderful service. When asked if we had made a reservation we hadn't. They moved a table and made room. We had excellent Mussels and a Spinach salad (shared them).

Great view and the best restaurant in Alert Bay at the time we visited. Wendy (the owner) let us in from the rain despite being closed before dinner. So grateful. Our server, Isabella, was delightful.

This was the only restaurant open during our visit in March. The service was excellent, friendly and professional. We had lunch and dinner on day one which was very good. On day two we had dinner and it was excellent. The chef knows how to...cook a steak. The vegetables and baked potato were also well prepared. We chose the carrot cake for dessert and it was also excellent. We would definitely recommend this restaurant!More

We had a delicious family dinner. Safe social distancing. Food would rival anything from the big city. Chicken parmigiana and lamb shank specials. Service was quick and very friendly. Can’t wait to enjoy another meal here!

Our dining experience was marred by poor service and inconsistent food provided on the same special. For example, the Chef provided toasted garlic bread to the table next to us and no bread at all to us, even though both tables ordered the same special....The desert menu lacked most of the listed items, even though we ate before 6 pm on a Friday night. The waitress appeared disinterested and untrained in hospitality. The veal was inexplicably too dry for my taste. The bone marrow was very good, and the appetizers were good, but the portions were far too small. The special was overpriced by 40%, compared to the top prices of everything else on the menu. There should have been fresh fish on the menu, especially since this restaurant is on an island with huge amounts of fresh salmon that is caught daily in early September. This was a serious flaw. Quality food, prepared by a good chef, but marred by too many mistakes.More

This was one of only a few places open during the covid pandemic. The food and service were really good, social distancing and safety measures in effect, and the service was excellent. A million dollar view too!

We stopped in for a dessert. We went for the deep fried ice cream!!! Highly recommend. It is like one of the tiny donuts you get at the PNE wrapped around vanilla ice cream. The view from the restaurant is wonderful and our waitress was...great. Next time we are in town will definitely go for dinner.More
