A group of 8 of us had dinner at Tulio's on Thur. night as a rotation of restaurants when our wives are busy with their clubs' monthly meeting. Most had the House speciality: schnitzel while I had a New York steak. Everyone really enjoyed their meals. Portions were a good size and tasty. Service was friendly and relatively quick as... More

While on Vancouver Island, our 'home base' was Courtenay. We visited Tulio's twice during our stay. The food is really great and FRESH. The owner "THERESA" was a sweetheart. She offered excellent service and was personable and very sweet. Her son is the chef. His creations are wonderful. We had plenty of restaurants to choose from. The fact that we... More

We had heard mixed informal reviews from people who had eaten at Tulios but decided to give the place a try. It is conveniently located along Cliffe Ave, and easy to find, with good nearby parking. Unfortunately, although we were almost the only people in the restaurant, the service was slow and the food, when it finally came, was scarcely... More

I felt well received and attended too. I ordered the Coquille and it was delicious. It also came with a mediterranean salad and buns before the main course all included in $25 which I think is very reasonable. My partner enjoyed their ribs, very soft and a delicious sauce.

Their specialty is supposed to be Schnitzel No Spätzle, It comes with some type of fried potato and vegies .The potatoes tasted off they had some odd taste from the deep fryer old grease or whatever they had been cooking in it before. My wife had the Escargot for the... More

We were there for dinner and ordered a Steak (medium), which We unfortunately got well-done. The seafood platter was ok, but the seafood tagliatelle were covered with a distasteful white goop..... Difficult to enjoy the meal.

The Seafood Neptune ($28) was ordered, but found no shrimp as mentioned in the menu. Only a few pieces of scallops and lobster FLAKEs.

Decor very dated but the meals are very well cooked and delicious. with a fine range of dishes. Chris the chef knows how to cook the perfect blue steak, and their pork and veal will amaze you. Go there every year for our anniversary.
