I was only in Port Alberni for 2 nights, but on one of them I went to the Starboard Grill for dinner. I ordered the special Mediterranean Feast plate, featuring shrimp, chicken kebabs and lamb kebabs. Delicious yogurt sauce!

The four of us had lunch at Starboard Grill. The location is really nice and as it was a sunny day we sat outside. We had the soup of the day, salmon and asparagus, and it was delicious! The sandwich was very rich and fatty....More

My husband and I were on our way to Tofino, Canada and decided to try this restaurant and it was a real treat! The restaurant is on the waterfront and it is very airy with large windows looking out to the water. It was chilly...More
