The place was not full yet the server stated that there were pressures on the kitchen so we might have to wait 20 minutes for food. We stayed and waited some 25 minutes but it was worth it as a flatbread and blue cheese salad...More

Very nice atmosphere, clean, and great service, with amazing food. Pastry is homemade, we wouldn't have found it, but we were told about it. It was worth seeking out. There is a bookstore attached with a pass through.

I am absolutely speechless and appalled of the actions of one of our employees during your experience! That is not acceptable in any way, shape or form and will be dealt with immediately! I offer my sincere apologies for this atrocious experience.

We went to this restaurant expecting something unusual on the menu as it was advertised and "Canadian cuisine". There wasn't anything on the menu that was out of the ordinary for an American cuisine. The food was good and the service was good also.

Thank you Darlene, you bring up an interesting point. I can understand the where the perception could be skewed as 'Canadian Cuisine' is such a broad label for so many different places.

My husband ordered the Mediterranean pizza, which was tasty with a little bit of spice. We both enjoyed it. Although the description says thin crust, it’s definitely thicker than a thin crust, but would order again. The Thai salad, on the other hand, was highly...More

We always pay Lefty’s a visit when in Parksville. The food is fresh, tasty and has something for everyone’s taste. Suitable for a couple, girls night out or a family group. Seating inside and out in a covered patio.
