big portions in an old house

Cool house down a nice curvy road. Basic food but tastes good. Parking nice and close. 6 to 8 minutes from downtown

We had made reservations for a group of friends to eat breakfast at the Quamichan Inn on a Sunday morning. We arrived and were shown to a table, which looked very attractive with a starched white tablecloth and a view out the window. We were served coffee, and we gave our orders. Some time went by, but we did not... More

We arrived for dinner at 7 pm on a Tues. night. We were the only ones in the restaurant the whole time we were there so you'd expect the service to be good. A bread basket was brought to the table and we asked to have it refilled when we finished the two small pieces. We were told that there... More

Absolutely delicious lunch (& Caesars of course)....Very peaceful (except for our laughter), looking out at the beautiful gardens)!

We went to celebrate my Mother's birthday with a special dinner at the Quamichan Inn. The grounds are beautifully lit as you drive on to the property. Upon arriving, we were greeted by a friendly hostess, who had a smile on her face. We were taken to one area of the dining room and offered a great table close to... More

Hi, Have had great experiences at the Quam. But even though it was New Years Day and expecting great things even at 1:00 pm, I have to say it was really disappointing. However I will give it another chance.

I've lived in the Cowichan Valley for 15 years and have heard good things about this restaurant. I went last evening with 5 other friends for a birthday dinner and was sorely disappointed. The prime rib was not very tender, the potato dish was strange (no mashed potatoes, just a crusty cube of sorts). I arrived at 6:25 for a... More

New people have taken over the Quamichan Inn from the last time we were there. Unfortunately it doesn't have the same flare or food quality. Too bad because it is really a neat old inn.

While visiting family on Vancouver Island, during the 2014 Christmas Holidays, we found ourselves on our own on the 25th. Unfortunately, all the grandchildren were with their stepdad. Without the additional time and drive, to Victoria, and search for 25th open restaurants in the Duncan area became an afternoon event. Finally, found Quamichan Inn to be open...nice location, short drive,... More

I just had Christmas dinner buffet at the Quamichan Inn. For weeks I was looking forward to it until I saw the food. No mashed potatoes. Turkey was dry and cold. In fact, all of the food seemed like it sat around for some time. The salads were mushy. There was some guy in street clothes maintaining the "warmers". I... More
