Dine Around the Comox Valley offers value for the ‘special night out’ crowd

For the fifth annual Dine Around the Comox Valley, those looking for a special night out can explore the $37 menus at five area restaurants, including Avenue Bistro, Bisque, Locals, Prime Chophouse & Wine Bar, and The Breakwater at Kingfisher Oceanside Resort.

Each menu includes a choice of appetizer, entrée and dessert for $37, with options ranging from ling cod to cordon bleu, and water buffalo bourguignon to seared albacore tuna.

The menus offer guests the opportunity to explore unique pairings of dishes, both between courses, and on their plates.

“The shorter winter days lead to romantic and warm winter nights, especially when you add an amazing three-course meal into the mix,” says Sandra Viney of Avenue Bistro. “For anyone looking to treat that special someone to a delicious meal, Dine Around is definitely the time that provides the best value for their dollar.”

As an added bonus for this year’s Dine Around, two contests are offering participants the chance to win big.

Anyone who completes a survey after visiting a participating restaurant is entered to win the prize of dining out for the year, which includes 12, $50 gift certificates to restaurants throughout the Comox Valley.

And, anyone who signs up for the Discover Comox Valley newsletter will be entered to win a night at the Best Western PLUS: The Westerly Hotel & Convention Centre, a bottle of Coastal Black wine, and a $50 gift certificate to a Comox Valley restaurant.

To sign up for the newsletter, visit or go to the Vancouver Island Visitor Centre Facebook page.

Dine Around the Comox Valley is a partnership of participating restaurant and accommodation providers, sponsorship from Gordon Food Service, Coastal Black Estate Winery, the Comox Valley Record, the Eagle 97.3FM, and supported by Comox Valley Economic Development and Tourism.
