The restaurants throughout British Columbia are some of the most diverse and eclectic that Canada has to offer. Borne of a highly multi-cultural population, choose between any number of ethnic restaurants such as Japanese, Chinese, Szechwan, Thai, Vietnamese, Indian, Greek, Italian – there is something for everyone’s taste and mood. Or, with so many options, choose between other ethnic fare, west coast cuisine, haute cuisine or down home cooking wherever your travels take you.
Food services in BC are regulated by rigid public health laws, so whatever your tastes are, you will find only safe and clean facilities serving up your favourite meal. Sometimes the smallest, most unsuspecting roadside diners boast the most exceptional corned beef hash or hot apple pie!
If you lean towards a stylish wine and tapas experience or a generally more sophisticated repast, you will find a host of amazing culinary delights in any of the metropolitan areas of British Columbia, as well as some hidden gems in smaller towns like Nelson, Naramata and Tofino. So many of British Columbia’s restaurants are set amongst the lakes, mountains and rolling hills that make the province beautiful – what better way to savour a meal!
You will also find world class and award winning chefs and sommeliers proudly plying their art at restaurants in Vancouver, Victoria, Whistler and on the Gulf Islands. The west coast of British Columbia is famous for its fresh, organic ingredients and exciting, vibrant flavours. Enjoy a west coast meal paired with one of BC’s exquisite local wines, from Vancouver Island, the Gulf Islands or the Okanagan Valley wine region.
Whether your pleasure is for a quick, quaint bite on a busy road trip or if you prefer your meal to be a destination and an experience unto itself, British Columbia restaurants, bistros, cafes and eateries deliver!
