Usually food at airports are only slightly better than hospital food. This isn’t one of those places. Qualicum Beach Airport is small by airport standards which means the restaurant isn’t big either however their food is excellent and well prepared. Most patrons aren’t flying anyway...More

The website has menus on it. I tried posting a link, but trip advisor will not allow websites in answers.

No, but for your best bet in Qualicum Beach area head to either Cuckoos (Coombs) or Salt Pizzaria (Parksville) for pizza. But if you want great pizza, head to Lantzville and have outstanding pizza at "Riso".
