We have been to Lefty's a few times now since moving here. The price is definitely reflective of what you get. Yes about $15 average per item but worth it. The burgers taste homemade. The Bolder Mac and Cheese is amazing. The Chicken Burger is also very very yummy.

My boyfriend and I ordered two pizzas - a pepperoni/meat and the cheeseburger pizza (I forget the names). The pizzas were personal sized but priced as though they'd be much bigger. However, they were both very tasty. I just wanted to mention that we were seated in a booth directly across from the face of the kitchen, and the manager... More

We have appreciated Lefty's since we moved here 16 years ago. We are rarely disappointed. Without realizing it, we arrived close to closing time but they left us to relax and enjoy a pizza and a glass of wine and never hinted that we were there so late. Good food and wine, excellent service from an experienced waiter and a... More

We stopped off on our way from Victoria to Tofino for a coffee. The staff were very friendly and he selection of cakes was stunning. My wife had a slice of lemon meringue which was massive, but I was advised it was the lemon meringue that she has eaten.

Went for breakfast and ordered the Traditional which consisted of two free range eggs (scrambled), with one locally made sausage, hash browns, multi grain toast and tea. The eggs were well prepared but cold as were the hash browns and with very little taste. The hash browns were over cooked. The toast were ok. I was truly disappointed with this... More

Ordered three different pizzas and was honestly not impressed with any of them. Four cheese blend is smelly like parmesan or asiago and does not belong on a margarita pizza, but basil does and it was missing. Flavors in general were bland and muted. Crust became harder and harder as the pizza cooled - not recommended for those with braces... More
