We have eaten here with friends recently, mostly because of the view. The food is invariably good and the service excellent. During our most recent visit with friends, we ate outside and enjoyed various dishes, including the prime rib special. The latter was excellent, tender...More

Visited CView on a weekend away. An interestingly designed round restaurant. Service was exceptional and all but the appy was great.

It's always a gamble to try a new place, made more difficult by acquaintances with differing opinions. Or reading Trip Advisor reviews! But we're glad we chose C View last evening - my husband and I and our friends enjoyed the food and the service...More

When was the last time you walked into a room that wasn’t square? True, it would have been easier to rebuild than restore an old building. Chances are, you’d be sitting in a square room with much higher ceilings. But Qualicum would be missing a little bit of the past. A place that represents memories for families and friends that stretch back over three generations. Have a look at the floors, the ceilings, the pillars, and beams… and you’ll see why we appreciate all the designers and builders who helped restore a piece of the past and create this unique, round room and wedge-shaped lounge. Handcrafted food is our passion and seasonality plays a dynamic role in our menu. We take pride in serving delicious food done right, from preparing all of our meats in-house to making all of our own sauces. Working with fresh seasonal ingredients allows the natural flavors of the food to shine through each dish. We can taste the difference and we hope you can too!
