This restaurant on a boat is wonderful. We went with 11 people for a family style dinner. The cook was amazing . It was a 31/2 hour dinner evening in a beautiful setting in the harbour quay Port Alberni.

The first day at the B&B we had a Moroccan-style quiche - fabulous & fresh. The 2nd morning I had a great breakfast of wild-caught smoked salmon, eggs with cheese and capers. Yum!!

We have been to the Swept Away a few times for supper, and they have never disappointed us! Bouchra's culinary skills are beyond compare, and Dan's dessert are extraordinary! We haven't stayed on the ship, as we live in town, but I can only image...More

Bouchra and Daniel cook up excellent meals that are served on board the Swept Away at the dockyard. Lovely atmosphere, real authentic Moroccan food, cooked up by Bouchra with family help and her own Moroccan heritage. You must make a reservation as the meals are...More
