Alpina Restaurant

The mountains are where we call home, and we invite you to experience them as we do through exquisite culinary fare that’s the best of both worlds. Building upon our executive chef’s and pastry chef’s German heritage, our cuisine eloquently infuses traditional ingredients and preparation methods from the Alpine regions of Austria, France, Germany, Italy and Switzerland to elevate your perspective on the foods that have come to embody British Columbian fine dining.

Opened in spring 2019, Alpina Restaurant is now firmly one of Vancouver Island’s best restaurants and a real foodie destination. Boasting unforgettable views of Saanich Inlet and the Finlayson Arm from nearly every table, we strive to make every dining occasion unique by frequently changing the menu depending on what’s in season and the ingenuity of our chefs, as well as by offering a prodigious selection of rare vintages and cult wines from niche producers in British Columbia. For the ultimate culinary experience, choose our three-course or five-course chef’s tasting menu with wine pairings.
