Can’t say enough good things about this restaurant. The service was spot on, the food was beyond expectations. Very reasonably priced, tasty, plentiful and pretty much perfect. I had short ribs and my friend had the chicken Neptune special.

The wine we chose was fairly priced and so good that we went to the liquor store and bought 2 bottles!
We will be back and we will tell everyone!!

Don't let a trip to Parksville go by without checking out this little gem tucked away across the highway from the beach. Go for lunch and/or dinner you won't be disappointed. From the moment you walk in the door and are welcomed with warm, smiling faces you know it's going to be good. We were greeted by the owner, Ali and our server Leanne. Both ladies could not be any nicer and helpful. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and not pretentious. The food choices are fantastic and varied enough to suit a variety of taste buds. For a nice dessert to finish things off with, try the Sticky Date Cake...your tummy will thank you! Yum.

After reading a few positive reviews of Chameleons, we decided to visit for dinner. We were not disappointed!
The service was fast, friendly and efficient despite it being a busy night. We had the evening special which was prawns, salmon and scallops in a cheese and saffron sauce served with a choice of potatoes or rice and fresh vegetables on the side. Everything was done as it should be - the seafood was not over cooked, the vegetables were crisp and tasty and the entire dish can only be describes as delicious. We has the cheesecake for dessert and it too was done perfectly. Rather than having a specific fruit flavour baked into the cheesecake, they placed a variety of fresh fruit on top of and around the cheesecake with a drizzle of strawberry on the side - scrumptious!
The entire meal (including a very good salad entree and ice tea) was about $80 (before tipping) which is very reasonable given the quality of the food and service. We will be back here again in the near future. highly recommended- one of the best restaurants in Oceanside. Reservations recommended.

Four of us visited this restaurant for dinner on a stormy January night because it was located across the street from our hotel. It was wonderful! A lovely, intimate interior and great service, the four of us each had a different menu selection, and all of us really enjoyed our dinners. They were short-staffed that night and apologized for a bit of a wait, but from the Seafood Crepe to the Lamb Shank, it was well worth it. The portions were so generous that none of us could stuff down dessert, but we'll be back to take in their special chocolate brownie!
