Original artwork, local antiques, and handcrafted furniture are just a few of the things that create such an inviting atmosphere, but it may just be the wood-burning fireplace, jetted tub, and amazing views that truly makes your space a sanctuary.

The Sooke Harbour House Kitchen serves local, seasonal and organic foods, and the menu changes daily to reflect this.  Wild foods feature prominently on our offerings, and our 35-year relationship with local farms, fishers, artisans and foragers has defined us and historically helped spur the Canadian industry into the common theme we have today in forward-thinking restaurants.  Our 3-acre, manicured, rare herb and edible blossom garden and our temperate sea-warmed location make it possible to extend seasons beyond the norm for Canada, allowing us to serve tomatoes and fresh wild mushrooms in the middle of winter.

There has always been a passionate crew of local and foreign cuisiniers that come to learn the iconic gardens and philosophy that have generated many of the finest chefs in the country.

With our unique take on simple, accurate preparations set against dramatic presentations, we provide a geographically-rooted culinary poem: the finest we can source, presented with flair from the best ideas of the day, always excellent and occasionally reaching the sublime. Creativity has always been a tenet of this kitchen; experimentation and learning, interesting ingredients and preparations. Our gastronomical menu is a gourmet experience worth indulging in; making for an exploration of the season and region. Our catering for weddings and other special events follow the same commitment to quality.
