Restaurants in Cowichan Bay

You can assemble a great picnic lunch at Hilary’s Cheese & Deli, where the young, mushroomy goat’s-milk blue is the standout among nearly a dozen local varieties.

A maritime-style tavern filled with acres of worn wood, flickering oil lamps, and a winningly retro vibe (tableside Caesar salad service; a pianist playing “Theme from St. Elsewhere”).

French cuisine made largely using produce grown within a 10-mile radius.
