Unsworth Restaurant Update: Official Announcement!

March 17, 2014

After more than two years, Amuse on the Vineyard will close on Sunday April 27th. On Friday, May 23rd, THE RESTAURANT AT UNSWORTH will reopen its doors, and we are pleased to announce that our restaurant will be managed by Chef Steve Elskens and Christle Pope. Many will know Steve and Christle from Farm’s Gate Food and Catering, and we are thrilled that we all have a shared vision for the future of our restaurant.

The focus of Unsworth is to showcase the Cowichan Valley food and wine experience by providing a welcoming atmosphere and approachable menu that will appeal to our neighbours and visitors alike.

During the closed period, we will be busy undergoing some minor renovations and redecoration, developing menus, and training staff, all the while eagerly anticipating our reopening and the opportunity to further enhance the numerous attractions that the valley has to offer its residents and visitors.

Thank-you for your support during this transition, we look forward to welcoming you to The Restaurant at Unsworth!
