If you fly in/out of this airport this restaurant is right there. If not flying the ten minute drive from Parksville is worth it. Very nice folks run/own this place. Food is very good and won't break the bank. Go ahead and enjoy!

Reasonable price, great venue, and excellent food is what you will find at this Qualicum restaurant. We were there for lunch and all three of us had great meals. The service is very good, friendly without being intrusive.

It is nicely appointed with black table cloths and fresh flowers on the table. There are lots of nice big windows looking out onto the runway. Unfortunately, on that day, it was foggy and there...
