“Second Time...still a charmer”
Reviewed 6 August 2012

Was wondering what to do for dinner, there are so many options in QB. So it is a point in favour for Leftys since it was a standout resaurant in our mind at won the debate. Pesto chicken done beautifully, and a special request of no onions in the Gogonzola pasta was handled with naught a blink of question. I don't know where they get their pastieries and ckaes from, but it's not just the trees that are huge here in BC...whopping big slice of coconut cream pie, and an iceburg sized wedge of the most fabulous chocolate cream cheese cake we've come across. Well done on the ladies behind the counter and service was impeccible. Lefty's certainlt left a mark on us. We will be back.

“Love the Nirvana desert”
Reviewed 2 August 2012

Every time we visit Qualicum we always go to Lefty's for a slice of Nirvana. It has a shortbread base with pecans, with layers of chocolate, caramel and cream on top. Delicious!

“Wonderful meal! Will definitely return!”
Reviewed 1 August 2012

We had a wonderful family dinner here and would definitely go back! Our server (Kim) was fantastic, so friendly and we felt right at home. It's a nice small place, has great atmosphere and a perfect spot on a nice summer night. My kids really enjoyed there grilled cheese and "fresh" apple juice (a nice touch to have it freshly made). I had the scallops & bacon salad and I loved it. We can't wait to go back :)

“Fresh food and Great service!”
Reviewed 30 July 2012

What a great place for lunch! We always stop here on our way to the Tofino from Victoria and find the food delicious. Fresh, inventive, and very satisfying. We are so glad Lefty's is part of the Qualicum community and we look forward to many future meals. Highly recommended!
