Good place for dinner along the drive from Tofino to Nanaimo

We'll be leaving Tofino at around 2:00pm on a Tuesday, after eating lunch at Shelter Restaurant. Our plan is to take our time driving back to Nanaimo: stopping along the way at Wally Creek, Little Qualicum Falls, Goats on the Roof, and Cathedral Grove, and anything else that looks interesting.

Is there any restaurant along this route (not in Nanaimo) that is really special and "not to be missed"?

Port Alberni, Bare Bones Fish and Chips, Port Alberni is roughly 1 hour drive east to Nanaimo. You have your choice of traditional batter or Panko, with halibut, the hand cut fries and the very best coleslaw.Prawns and cod are also available. Portions are generous and the price is great. Check the reviews on T.A.,

We also like the Little Bavaria restaurant, Clambucket and the J & L Drive In Restaurant (very nostalgic) depending on the mood that day.

Pescadores in Port Alberni is better than any of them. I've eaten in the Clam Bucket lately. Their standards have slipped.
