Dine Around offers Something for Every Palate

Take time this summer to explore your community through food and beverage.
There is a restaurant, craft brewery, winery or distillery for every taste ready for you to explore!

COVID best practices and COVID-19 Safety Plans are in place at all our participating businesses.

Patios & Outdoor Dining

Patios come in all shapes and sizes.
Some are covered and some are open to the weather. Enjoying dining outside means being prepared for the weather. You may want to bring a blanket for a cool evening or a coat for the wind.


Take Out & Delivery

Comox Valley restaurants are offering take out,  delivery and curb side pick up! Order take away for meals at home or picnics in the park. Ask your restaurateur to suggest the perfect pairing of packaged beer, wine and spirits to compliment your dining experience!


Local Sips

Explore a range of unique tasting experiences in your own backyard when you visit local craft breweries, distilleries and wineries. Try a tasting, buy a bottle, or pack home a case! Some sips will have food trucks or picnics for you to enjoy on your visit.


Commitment to Safe Dining

When you decide to dine out in the Comox Valley this summer, know that restaurants are taking every precaution to make your dining experience COVID-compliant, safe and enjoyable!

All restaurants are currently required by Public Health Orders to have an active COVID-19 Safety Plan and to take both staff and guest safety seriously. This includes creating 2 metres (6 feet) distance between tables, using plexiglass and providing hand sanitizer.

All tables, inside and out, can host a maximum of 6 guests. Please note: All guests will be required to wear a mask entering the restaurant and getting up to visit the washrooms. Mingling between tables is not permitted.

To get a seat and enjoy safely, we recommend you make reservations. Patios may be weather dependent so plan ahead by bringing a coat if the evening gets cold.

ReStart Phase 2: As of June 15, indoor organized events of up to 50 people are allowed and restaurants can serve alcohol up to midnight. Restaurants will no longer be required to take your contact information for contact tracing.

People & Places make Dining Great

The people are what make dining experiences great in the Comox Valley! When you make the choice to support a local restaurant, coffee shop, café, winery, distillery or craft brewery, you are celebrating the skill and craft that these people proudly bring to the table. You are engaging with a beautiful web of people who live and work in #YQQ and are #foodies.

The food web includes not just chefs, cooks, hosts, servers, bussers and dishwashers but the all the local farmers, winegrowers, craft brewers, distillers, fishers, harvesters and producers that they partner with on their menus and drinks lists. That’s why it’s so important to #EatDrinkLocal and #BuyBC!

Head out into the community and meet some of the people who make your food and drink.
