This week we enjoyed having overnight guests for a couple of nights. Last night our thoughtful guests treated us to dinner at the C View Restaurant at the Qualicum Beach Inn. What a pleasant surprise!
The C View has a new chef and they just launched a new dinner menu. And a good one it is, too. My favourite girl and I shared a Caesar Salad that was unusual in that it included delicious green beans. Then she chose her favourite, Crab Cakes that were pretty much just chunks of crab. I opted for the mussels which were done in a Tomato, Coconut Curry sauce that was wonderful. There were so many mussels I could not finish them all. Some bread was included and the dish was only $22. Our guests chose Butternut Squash Ravioli which she declared was really outstanding. He ordered Seafood spaghettini, which he said was pretty good.
Our server was yet another foreign chap, South African, who met a Canadian girl in a bar and, of course, ended up in Bowser. He was an excellent waiter. Efficient and charming.
Added to the evening was a continuous serenade of live classic guitar. Very nice touch.
Looking for a delightful evening with you true love…try the C View. I think you will be impressed with their new menu choices. We sure were. Here is their website https://cviewrestaurant.com
By the way, our friends Lorna & Mike recommend early dinner at the bar sharing a dish and some wine, something they do regularly.
