If you’re heading over to Bamfield, chances are that you’re there for a relaxing get-away or to catch some fresh seafood. Either way, we’re sure that you’ll build up a great appetite doing everything that Bamfield has to offer. Once a quiet little fishing down, Bamfield has grown into a great get-away location and it has many delicious eats to offer visitors and residents alike. Make sure to check out these four restaurants while you’re in Bamfield, BC.

1. The Market Café

The Market Café is a quaint little market located in the heart of Bamfield and was purchased by Huu-ay-aht First Nations in 2013. It’s open seasonally from March to October serving casual dining with a menu that offers something for everyone. The Café is also licensed, meaning you can enjoy a boozy beverage with your meal. From building your own omelette to a grilled cinnamon roll, you can enjoy these inside their Café area or outside on the patio to take advantage of the beautiful Bamfield weather.

2. The Boardwalk Bistro

The Boardwalk Bistro is a little restaurant opened by partners Barry and Judy. Location on Bamfield’s famous boardwalk, it is a relaxed and friendly little eatery serving up great food. Take a seat on the waterfront bar tables to enjoy a great view of the scenic Bamfield inlet while you get. The burgers, paninis and coffee drinks are highly recommended by their regular patrons.

3. Tides and Trails

Also known as T&T or the east store, Tides & Trails is a market that sells fried and fresh good and has a great wine selection. The restaurant is attached with varying hours, so we recommend to call ahead to check. They only do dinner service during the peak season and have made a name for themselves serving up their delicious burgers.

4. The Pub Bamfield

ocated right across the street from The Market Café, the Pub Bamfield is also owned by the Huu-ay-aht First Nations. The Pub offers all the popular pub cravings you would want, including a delicious fish & chips and a halibut burger. Children are allowed at the pub and there’s indoor and outdoor seating available if you would like to enjoy the sunshine. Regulars also recommend their dessert selection if you’re looking for a nice little sweet treat.
