We had gone to Alert Bay to take a tour of a place which had been on my 'bucket list' for over 50 years when I first saw Mungo Martin carve in Victoria. On completing our tour of the island, we needed to stop for dinner before returning by ferry to Sointula. The manager of Culture Shock recommended Pass'n Thyme... More

My husband and I are English and we were travelling with four of my husband's Canadian family. We were planning to do a whale watching trip and booked accommodation at the Alert Bay Cabins on Cormorant Island. Chris, the manager at the cabins, suggested Pass' n Thyme as a place to eat - there is no restaurant at Alert Bay... More

I am not a fries person, but not only ate them, but we came back the next day JUST TO EAT MORE! Gyro burger really good. Lovely, sweet waitress.

This is a good place to eat takes a while to get your food but they do a decent job of it and they are very friendly

none too clean . tired decor...and service was unsophisticated, and this is definitely a family friendly kind of experience.. iffy overall.. zero ambience and not cheap.. my husband ordered the special... loved his dinner .. said it would rival dinner anywhere..and mine was average. Great view

A day trip to Alert Bay was unfortunately a little disappointing. However, our lunch at Pass'n Time was not. Their home made wraps were very flavourful and the home made apple pie with ice cream reminded me of the kind my grandma used to make and serve us as kids.

Ate there several times, each time was very good - consistent, high quality, good service. Nice view out over the water. Also stayed in the suite over the restaurant and really enjoyed it - stayed an extra night!

Spacious, airy, bright, yet also warm artistic and funky! Perched up high to take in the intoxicating view we had meals here over 3 days and look forward to going back. We had the halibut and fries and the Halibut Burger and fries twice! The server (darn, should have asked her name), was a beautiful example of grace under pressure... More
