Canvas Cup is now closed.: Coffee and sandwich shop
This coffee shop is unique. The menu is varied and delicious. The atmosphere has been carefully created and the lattes the best. The Canvas Cup showcases local artists and the walls are lined with art which make great conversation pieces. The menu boasts many different kinds of drinks. The soups are healthy and delicious and the desserts are wonderful.
Favorite Dish: White chocolate latte is my favorite drink.
Pescadores: Great Food In or Out
This is a steak and seafood bistro which has become very popular. It is situated just off the main road (Johnson) at the bottom, and just at the turn off for points west.
It is possible to sit on the patio which affords a view of the Somass River.
I was impressed with the speed of service and the willingness to please when we went there for lunch.

Boston Pizza: Good Food..Great Menu
I have been here several times and never been disappointed. The menu boasts a wide variety of dishes both for lunch and dinner.
The ambience is friendly and relaxed and very much family orientated. Children are welcomed and are given crayons and something to color. This plus the food must keep them happy as I have yet to hear a little one cry.
The waitresses are cheerful and quick.
Favorite Dish: Last night I had a chicken salad which was delicious. There was lots of tender chicken on top of a great mixed salad with a very nice dressing. The portion was large and I brough some home.
I have also had pizza here and enjoyed it immensely. No tough crusts here and there is a wide variety of toppings.
Waters Edge Restaurant is currently closed: We Wait and See.
This restaurant is a pub style restaurant. It is situated right on the edge of the Alberni Canal so affords a wonderful view. The restaurant is fairly spacious and there is a deck outside overlooking the canal where your meal can be enjoyed on a nice day.
Favorite Dish: The restaurant has closed it's doors. That is the status right now. Hopefully they will reopen or someone will buy it as the location is probably the best in Port Alberni.
Little Bavaria: Fine Dining
This restaurant has been a favorite in Port Alberni for many years. It has recently been renovated to create a wonderful Bavarian atmosphere. The facade of the building is an immediate draw.
Kathy K. (owner) and her staff have been providing wonderful service to very loyal clients and tourists and they do it with a smile.
The food is always good. The Schnitzels are a special treat. They specialize in German and European food.
The restaurant is open from Monday thru Friday for lunch and dinner and everyday for dinner.
The Clam Bucket: Great Seafood
The Clam Bucket is a popular restaurant in Port Alberni. The service is good and the food plentiful.
The name could be misleading as they serve all kinds of food and it is always good.
There is a glassed in area that is nice to sit in to get a view of the water.
Favorite Dish: I like everything I have had there but my favorite is the Beef Teryaki. I like stir fries and they do it very well.
