Food & Drink

Foodies rave about the best of the local eateries, often pointing to the quality of the local food as a big reason why.

Vancouver Island is world-renowned as a leading player in the “slow food” movement, and many Parksville Qualicum Beach restaurants 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 Parksville Qualicum Beach restaurants landscape. And a full array of nationally branded chain operations are bunched in Parksville. Bon appetite!
