We tried the oyster restaurant upstairs this visit and it was wonderful!
Tasty fresh different cold and baked options from different parts of the island, can’t wait to visit and return to try some of the dishes we couldn’t. Be sure to book in advance.
The clam linguine was outstanding with lots of clams!!
The boulabaise, was clam based and no shrimp or crab so excellent for a family member with shellfish allergies. Our server was excellent, and with the cowichan valley wine we felt we truly had experienced the west coast flavours.

This was a great eating experience! I had the veggie tagine which had delicious middle eastern flavours and was totally satisfying; my friend enjoyed the fettuccine with muscles and practically licked the plate! We opted for the house red and it was very good. The service was excellent in spite of it being packed and we'd love to visit again soon.

Stopped at this restaurant on Yates Street for lunch with friends. Pleasant atmosphere and service. The main space was full so the waitress gave us the option to sit out back - heated this time of year so was fine. I had a really good lamb burger with a really good salad. Overall the prices were okay. A good downtown choice.

After a long walk we stumbled upon Ferris’ Grill & Garden Patio. A colleague of mine had recommended it so we entered the establishment with confidence.
Wood & brick were the prominent features of decoration!
It is primarily a seafood restaurant specializing in shell fish!
My boyfriend had linguine with mussels & I had a chicken pita wrap.
While both meals made our taste buds dance with delight the wait was beyond belief! Apparently, only two servers were on duty which
slowed everyone’s meals down to a snail’s pace! We were not unhappy so much as bewildered by this phenomenon!
I would not hesitate to recommend this restaurant to anyone!
