The Modern

We offer a relaxed atmosphere that’s perfect for getting together with friends, or a special celebration. Our wild-inspired cuisine invites you to explore earthy, bright and boldly delicious flavours from the forests, fields and shores that surround us.

Our daily specials highlight the rich diversity of wild foods that flourish all around us. The seasonal and preserved wild and foraged ingredients we use are gathered with care, and respect for the land, here on Vancouver Island. We also source fresh seasonal produce, meat and eggs from local farms, and proudly offer local spirits and sodas
