“Nice patio, good food and great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 August 2014

We took my parents here for dinner, having reserved an outside table in advance (they are often full!) Their outdoor patio is pleasant and the tables are far enough apart that you can actually have a conversation without hearing every other table! The restaurant itself is also nicely decorated. The ribs were lovely - great flavour and falling off the bone, the way I like them. Great baked potatoes that came dressed with sour cream, bacon bits and green onions. My husband enjoyed his seafood and sausage dish. They also have nice desserts. The restaurant is on the intersection where you turn right on the road that goes on to the west coast, or turn left to head downtown.

“Beautiful outdoor setting”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 June 2014

Had brunch with some friends and the setting outside was great, the service was great, the company of friends was great, not so much the food. The ham was dry and looked old, the fried potatoes were cold and not fully cooked, the eggs were good though, that's about it. My friends didn't say much about their food, so no complaints from them, but maybe they didn't say anything out loud like me.

“Fish Tacos made at perfection!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 16 June 2014 via mobile

I have just had a great fish taco lunch. The portion of two juicy tacos with salad were tasty and savoury good looking.

Pescadore bistro is a fine eatery; I highly recommend it!

“Lovely Lunch”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 May 2014

Stopped for a quick lunch on our way to Tofino. Parking was plentiful and when we went into the restaurant we found it very inviting. The menu was great, lots or items with varied price range. I would make it a stop if we are in Port Alberni
