Vineyard views, delectable menu, award-winning wines and more.
Welcome to Unsworth Restaurant – a culinary celebration of all-things Vancouver Island. From a seasonally inspired menu showcasing fresh, local, sustainable ingredients, to exceptional service and award-winning wines, we give bold, new meaning to farm-to-table cuisine.
Take it all in.
Located off a picturesque country road winding through the working farms and rolling hills in the heart of Cowichan Valley’s wine country, Unsworth Restaurant is whimsically nestled in a restored early 1900s farmhouse – warm and welcoming with plenty of charm and heritage. Relax and enjoy panoramic views that change with the breezes. Both our dining room and outdoor patio overlook 12 stunning acres of vineyards, an ancient apple and walnut orchard, and our own organic herb and vegetable garden. Also a spectacular setting for intimate celebrations and events.
As local as it gets.
While Cowichan Valley tends to keep a low profile, it’s gaining a reputation as an exciting destination in wine and foodie circles that’s almost definitely local. As Chef Maartyn Hoogeveen and Manager Mark Niven will attest, it’s about simple delights created from local love and ingredients. Over the years, we have fostered relationships with many neighbouring farmers and producers. And it shows in Unsworth Restaurant’s menu and Community Supported Restaurant program.
Enjoy refreshingly delicious and interesting choices that deliver the essence of casual meets elegant vineyard dining. We offer a selection of small plates for those who prefer smaller portions, or for tables that like to share. We also offer more traditional large plates, featuring bistro classics. And of course, our wine list features award-winning wines from Unsworth Vineyards, as well as a selection of carefully chosen British Columbia wines that mirror our own values in winemaking. Like our menu, the wine list changes with the seasons, creating the perfect balance of food and wine flavors.
Unsworth Pizza Patio.
Unsworth Pizza Patio was designed to accommodate larger groups, families and guests looking for a more casual but equally delicious dining experience as our traditional restaurant, set on a beautiful patio overlooking our vineyard. Our pizza patio operates over the summer season while weather allows.
Chef Maartyn has taken great pride in creating a fabulous slow two day ferment crust. The tomato sauce that accompanies the Margherita pizza and Quattro Carne is made from fire roasted local tomatoes in our Forno oven. Cheeses are sourced from local cheese makers Haltwhistle and Natural Pastures. Two Rivers supplies our cured meats and local farmers supply the arugula and many vegetables featuring on our daily pizza. All of this care that goes into making our pizzas and in sourcing ingredients locally is what makes our pizzas so delicious.
