Have you visited these new(ish) Courtenay restaurants?
I don’t know about you, but I think enjoying good food is one of the best parts of life. And the great thing about living in the Valley is that it makes it so darn easy to do just that.
With scores of restaurants in the region, serving everything from the exotic to pub fare, you know you’ll find something to suit your taste.
Just in Downtown Courtenay alone, there are numerous eateries, a handful of which are relatively new kids on the block. Check out these fresh spots where you can tuck in and chow down.
Pizzeria Guerilla and Taqueria Guerilla are the offspring of the well-loved Guerilla Food Co. The taqueria is located next to Gladstone Brewing at Cliffe and Fourth and offers mouth-watering creations that you’d never imagine on your own. It took over that prime location from the Pizzeria, which is now located on 5th Street near England Ave. Whichever one you visit, you’ll be glad you did!
For something completely different, go up 5th and around the corner onto Fitzgerald to a new Vietnamese restaurant called Pho 54. Delicious spring rolls, noodle soups and sesame balls await you. You can even sit outside, when the weather allows, and enjoy the savoury flavours.
Bisque restaurant has actually been around for quite a while but just moved to the corner of Cliffe and 6th this past summer. Their fresh West Coast menu has many faithful followers. Though their locale is new, you’ll still get the same great food and service.
Il Falcone took over the old Tita’s location on 6th Street off of Fitzgerald about a year ago, and it has received much well-deserved attention and praise. Sumptuous Italian dishes rely on local ingredients to truly shine – and they do!
Wherever you go, you’ll be in good hands. Have fun and don’t forget to save room for dessert!
