Recommended by Averill Creek Vineyard for lunch. Had the special of the day - fresh basil infused pasta made that morning with a tomato based sauce with lots of vegetables. So delicious and unique in every bite. Will def visit again when I'm in Duncan.

Was here for dinner, they have a strange menu. and I felt it was quite overpriced. 18.00 for Broccoli plate, which was too salty. Had Fried that were limp and the "fancy" sauce with them was only mayo

My husband and I discovered this gym during our visit in Duncan. I looooved their whisky list and delicious dishes. We also had the artisan cheese plate to start with an order of a wine flight. For entrees, had the Kimchi Waffles and Thai Chicken while my hubby ordered the Wild Boar Ragu. I would highly recommend both. The ginger... More

Great food, friendly people, we couldn't have enjoyed the evening more. Jeff (sp?) was an attentive and friendly host and our server was lovely. We will definitely be back!

I dropped in tonight for a glass of wine and a snack. I asked for a red with lots of tannins, and they got me a glass from off the menu- a Devils Elbow Cab Sav from the Adelaide Hills. It was lovely. As a snack, we ordered Langos, a Hungarian fry bread. It was hot and crisp on the... More

We went there for a lunch date and we were pleasantly surprised by the food. We had the BLT and soup. The BLT was the most delicious I have ever had. I have no idea how the chef prepared it to make it not generic but it was so yummy. The soup was excellent as well.

This great little wine bar in downtown Duncan revives a standard and spirit from European cities on Southern Vancouver Island. The room is interesting, with great original art, the chairs are comfortable, and people lounge for a long time enjoying good food and wine. They are served by attentive and interesting staff, who know their menu and drink list, wines... More

An interesting selection of wine and food, well prepared and served (for some reason our waiter disappeared half way through the meal and was never seen again, but the rest of the crew closed the gap just fine). Nice warm but contemporary surroundings. Will be worth a second visit.
