DINING In DUNCAN and AROUND COWICHAN
Duncan and Cowichan has what you are looking for: fine dining, local craft breweries, family restaurants, organic cafes and bakeries, great lunch stops, local wines and yummy treats. Our restauranteurs can look after your intimate occasion or your corporate event.
The Cowichan region is becoming known as Canada’s ‘Provence’ because of the quality and diversity of products being grown here. Artisan cheeses, hand crafted breads and superior fruits and veggies are highly sought after by local chefs and restaurateurs who serve up some of the tastiest, freshest and healthiest food you will find anywhere in the world.
Wineries and cideries have made their name in Cowichan. Most wineries offer tours and tastings and many have delightful cafes, bistros and picnic areas.
Old Town Duncan is home to the region’s only brewpub. Legendary painter EJ Hughes’ artwork adorns the walls, and fine craft beers created onsite complement time honored favorites and unique dishes.
If "do it your self" is your style, visit the farmgates or weekly farm markets where friendly local growers and producers will be more than happy to tell you about their goods.
Several events throughout the year allow one to sample the rich diversity palate pleasing products. In September the focus is on food. The Wine & Culinary Festival and Gourmet Gala pairs talented and creative chefs with award winning wines.
