Our Food Philosophy
From a cuisine standpoint, we have made a sometimes difficult, but usually rewarding, commitment to use only the best ingredients from the Southwestern Coast of
To this end, through the years, we have developed a network of local organic growers that supply us with their wonderful meats and produce. The sea, of course, yields a rich variety of shellfish, fish and sea vegetables that underscore the seafood emphasis of our daily changing menus. Seasonal foragers reap wild greens and mushrooms from our relatively unspoiled wilderness to grace our plates. Many First Nations traditional foods, from uncommon fish to berries, local mushrooms and edible flowers are also part of our kitchen’s palette.
Our chefs are happy to create a personalized menu appropriate for your dietary restrictions for an additional fee. Please alert our staff to your restrictions and let them know if you require a special dietary menu.
