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.

Quick stop for lunch on the way to Tofino. Food was good, one of the specials was a steak taco. Very tender pieces of meat although it could have used some more spices. Service was good and friendly, the server asked for feedback for the...More

Prompt service, friendly wait staff and delicious food. Has a funky atmosphere; a couple of private booths, in the middle of the restaurant. Also the typical tables along the walls. An excellent selection of desserts.
