Most likely the best choice to eat in the small town. There were locals and tourists alike. The free wifi didn't work, menu was the usual (burgers, fish, salads etc). Portions were large, and cookies were huge too. Fresh out of the oven.

Good food. Clean premises. Seating options for indoor and outdoor. Gluten free options too! Wifi was also available which was great in a cell service dead zone.

The place was fairly full but we went at the end of summer so they had plenty of time over the summer to get ready for crowds. The service was very slow, the Internet didn't work and there is only one toilet in each of the men's and women's washrooms which is poor considering the restaurant holds about 50 people.... More

We were in Port Renfrew during a power outage - from the people we spoke to it seemed like a pretty common occurrence out there. We picked this place because of the great reviews, and the fact that they had a generator, so we thought we'd be able to get some substantial food. Before we sat down we were told... More

My family and I were staying nearby and came to Coastal Kitchen for dinner which was very tasty and surroundings very chilled and laid back which is just how we like it. We had freshly cooked pizza from an outdoor oven along with salad an Italian sharing platter and some fries, all of which was delicious.

We had fabulous pizza's here one evening during our stay in Port Renfrew. The salmon pizza was a revelation - brilliant. I also tried their sparkling cider which was a bit like prosecco and just what was required after a few hours on exploring Botanical Bay. The pizzas are made to order so don't come that quickly but it is... More

Comfy like a living room, and the recipes are creative and tasty! Not cheap, but cooking with ingredients like whats on this menu...it's worth the drive! Really nice chowder, really good chicken and pesto sandwich from the roast-y chicken pieces to the fresh crusty bread! yum! So great to find a nice restaurant like this one- wish it was closer...

This restaurant has really good options to make your meal gluten free:) I found the staff knowledgeable and friendly. They put a pan fried salmon with a lovely salad together for me that I really enjoyed! The special house dressing made with blackberries was wonderful!!! My husband enjoyed his burger and fries as well. The other good point is that... More

We drove the 255 km Pacific Marine Route and ended up in Port Renfrew at about lunchtime. We asked some local kids where we might find a cute restaurant. They sent us to the Coastal Kitchen. Lunch and a shared Fat Tug IPA beer set us back a few $$, but was worth the stop. This place is out of... More
