Hudson's On First
located in downtown Duncan, Daniel Hudson (was on Top Chef Canada!) is making magic in the Cowichan Valley with confident, assertive, roots-conscious food (black pudding, bubble and squeak), terrific service, and a handsome heritage location.

Sobo Restaurant's culinary philosophy echo the values of small town Tofino. A combination of boldly imaginative, world wise dishes expertly prepared with simple, fresh, locally produced- often wild- ingredients and served in an environment that is somehow both elegant and rustic. Sophisticated Bohemian not only represents the style of culinary integrity and relaxed ambiance that Artie and Lisa Ahier have cultivated- it also reflects the personality of Tofino itself. Killer Fish Tacos anyone?

Sooke Harbour House has a long standing reputation of being ground zero for the slow food movement. They serve up local, organic, seasonal, and wild food! Is considered one of Victoria's best seafood restaurants. 


The Pointe at the Wickaninnish Inn boasts rustic elegance on the edge of the Pacific Ocean. They offer up Pacific Northwest cuisine with 240 degree views from their gorgeous cedar room. View the ocean while dining on top quality local ingredients served up by exceptional professional staff.
