Best Vancouver Island 2010

Gold: Sooke Harbour House

Silver: Amusé Bistro
Bronze: The Pointe at the Wickaninnish Inn
Honourable Mention: The Edge
Honourable Mention: Sobo

Despite a change in chef, Sooke Harbour House (Gold) “still delivers the fine local dining experience it pioneered long before the 100-Mile Diet.” Cowichan Valley gem Amusé won Silver for its menu “built from neighbouring farms, forests, and waters.” In a soaring room, diners at The Pointe at the Wickaninnish Inn (Bronze) enjoy expertly prepared and plated meals. Honourable Mentions to The Edge (Sooke Harbour ex Edward Tuson gets “stunning, tasty, and just a little messy”) and sophisticated, unpretentious Sobo in Tofino.
