Cview restaurant is one of the better restaurants in Qualicum Beach. They have a modern decor and you should try to reserve a table looking over the ocean (across the street). The prices are reasonable and the food well presented and prepared. I would prefer a more substantial wine list and more California choices but we found something that works.... More

Recently went to Cview with friends for dinner. Loved the decor and atmosphere and also the fact that the tables are not on top of each other. We all thoroughly enjoyed our meals and dessert. Our waiter was one of the best we have ever had - knowledgeable, pleasant and attentive. Will definitely eat here again.

The great thing about this restaurant is that most tables offer an exceptional ocean view. The menu is limited and the food is good but the pizza is the best item on the menu.

Our shrimp sandwiches were fresh and yummy. The Thai feature soup was floury with lumps. But the service was exceptional and the dessert excellent. Would return.

We live in the area and were excited to see the changes taking place within it's doors. Kudos for the best upscale atmosphere in town but thumbs down for the food which is mediocre, average and sometimes disappointing. We have been here only about 4 times hoping that it will have gotten better and each time, except once, there is... More

We were 3 for lunch on a very rainy day. The restaurant was not particularly busy. Cview has a casual elegant atmosphere and we had a nice table in the window. Our lunch choices were hamburger and Caesar salad, mussels with jalapeño coconut milk, and a shrimp sandwich. We all enjoyed our lunches. I feel that QBI should be rated... More
