About

"The Breakwater" name speaks to the heritage of our setting; the original breakwater was formed to calm Comox Harbour so loggers could form their bounty into booms for tugs to transport. Just up the shoreline, several ships were scuttled to create a breakwater. Today, those silent hulls serve as an iconic reminder of the perils that faced coastal pioneers. "The Breakwater" speaks of the restaurant's proximity to the ocean, as well as the rich history of the Comox Valley. We invite you to enjoy the warm atmosphere, friendly service, and fresh, creative West Coast cuisine in the Breakwater restaurant or on our patio — all with one of the best views in the Pacific Northwest. We're committed to bringing you the bounty of Vancouver Island. The surrounding waters are famed for salmon, halibut, sable-fish, shrimp, crab, mussels, oysters, clams and more. Our climate supports a vast range of vegetables, fruits, and herbs… to say nothing of the wild foods that pops up without anyone's help

This was the first time in the new dining room, everything is lovely except for the art, no worries the restaurant has a fabulous view. We found the only people who looked happy to be working were the hostess and busboy. No one was rude, but no one was very friendly either, server didn't introduce themselves and we waited over 20 mins to get a drink we ordered when we sat down. I think we prefer the old fashion over the top type overly attentive kind of service, which I realize is not very popular anymore. (generation thing) Food was tasty, but the plating does not match your pricing, it lacked sophistication. If I am honest, I would make the appetizers smaller and lower the price, they make better sharing plates than individual servings before a dinner. Overall it was a good experience, but not a great experience for the price.

We went there for my husband's birthday. Fabulous meal. Service was great. Waitress was helpful and had good recommendations. I heard her talking about the area and she was quite knowledgeable. They gave my husband a lovely dessert, free of charge with a candle in it. We really enjoyed the evening. The view was amazing. The whole experience was wonderful.

The view is fantastic - overlooking the water. The food was fresh & tasty - I had buttermilk Chicken & my boyfriend had the martini mussels. The bowl of mussels was generous & delicious and my chicken was tender & juicy (not always the way with a chicken breast). But the highlight of the visit for us was our server. She was friendly without overdoing; had a great sense of humour and was informative about the menu. Definitely a great asset for the restaurant!

About to undergo renovations to make a bistro and wine bar and casual dining restaurant which is going to be much better with comparable bars and restaurants now opened up in town. Beautiful surroundings with Eagles flying by makes dining there a great experience. I only go for brunch or lunch as much better value. Great buffets on special occasions , just to expensive now for the amount I eat.

My wife and I, attended the restaurant for Sunday lunch, my wife had the salmon and I had the steak sandwich, both were very good. We also had desert which was also very good. The waitress was very pleasant and friendly and very knowledgeable in regards to items on the menu.

We would definitely return to your restaurant.

I would not recommend going here again to my friends. The most disappointing meal I have ever had. Poor value for the high price. Two prawns, two scallops and a few mussels is not my idea of a 'Seafood Pasta' it was all pasta.
