Service with a smile in Parksville
Compare and locate restaurants, pubs, and lounges.
Foodies rave about the best of the local eateries, often pointing to the quality of the local produce as a big reason why. Vancouver Island is world-renowned as a leading player in the “slow food” movement, and many establishments in the Parksville and Qualicum Beach region take pride in sourcing local meats, seafood, vegetables, bread and fruit whenever possible. Chefs then integrate the homegrown food into dishes that tickle the taste buds and satiate appetites.

Independent establishments serving everything from pad thai to pub food, steak to sushi, are dotted across the Oceanside map. And a full array of nationally branded chain operations are bunched in Parksville. Bon appetite!

South-east Asian: Home-cooked Malaysian delights are served up hot and spicy at The Westhill Restaurant, one of only 50 restaurants to earn Where to Eat in Canada’s “Best Buy” designation three years running.

Bodacious Brunch: Top-flight indulgence is the name of the game on Sundays at Tigh-Na-Mara Seaside Spa Resort. The resort’s popular Cedar Dining Room fills to capacity as happy patrons loosen their belts and make repeat raids on a genuinely spectacular buffet selection. Be sure to try the Endless Gourmet Tapas in the Treetop Tapas Grill.

Value-priced Gourmet: Herons at the Bayside, where chefs prepare a three-course feast for just $30. Come here for seafood, omelets, scrumptious entrees, desserts and a spectacular view of the ocean.

Casual and Funky: Lefty’s Restaurant is renowned for its funky atmosphere and fresh food. And the staff serve it up fast and friendly. The Huevos Burrito is a breakfast fave, while the focaccia-crust “piazzo” pizzas are a unique twist on a popular theme.

Cheese please: Little Qualicum Cheeseworks creates homestead cheeses the old fashioned way and the rewards are mouth-watering. Visit them at the Morningstar Farm and you will see why they have won awards for their outstanding local products.

The Quality Foods deli counter has more delicious cheese selections than anywhere else in the region.
