The Breakwater Restaurant at the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort and Spa, Courtenay, Vancouver Island BC


Breathtaking Views ~ Amazing Food

Welcome to The Breakwater

The Breakwater restaurant name speaks to the heritage of our setting; the original breakwater was formed to calm Comox Harbour so loggers could form logs into booms for transport. Just up the shoreline from our restaurant, more than a dozen ships were scuttled to create a breakwater; today they serve as an iconic reminder of the perils that faced coastal pioneers. Naming the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa’s restaurant, “The Breakwater” speaks of the restaurant’s proximity to the ocean, as well as the rich history of the Comox Valley.

The culinary team and staff invite you to enjoy the warm atmosphere, friendly service, and fresh, contemporary West Coast cuisine in the Breakwater restaurant or on the summer patio; all with one of the best views in the Pacific Northwest.

We’re committed to bringing you the bounty of Vancouver Island from the surrounding waters, which are famed for salmon, halibut, sablefish, shrimp, crab, mussels, oysters, clams and more.

In our mild climate we can grow a vast range of vegetables, fruits, and herbs… to say nothing of the wild foods that pop up without anyone’s help. We know the farmers and foragers who supply us.

The beauty of the Island attracts people who aim to produce truly wonderful food; their cheeses, breads, meats, and poultry prove that they’re doing just that.

Restaurant CLOSED for Renovations!

Coming Soon…. Two New Dining Venues

Two New Dining Venues Announced for the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa

Executive Chef Nyle Petherbridge, Owner Bill Brandes and General Manager, Aaron Greasley of the Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa

The Kingfisher Oceanside Resort & Spa located in Courtenay, BC on Vancouver Island, is excited to announce the city’s approval to commence construction of two brand new restaurants starting January 2nd, 2017. AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar and the new fine dining establishment, Ocean 7 Restaurant will be amazing additions to this World class waterfront resort and spa, says owner Bill Brandes.

The new AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar will feature creative casual shared plates paired with fine wines and signature cocktails, while Ocean 7 Restaurant will focus on West Coast seafood, grain fed meats and fresh organic produce from local sustainable growers and suppliers. The culinary experience will be unparalleled with unique creations from our Executive Chef Nyle Petherbridge, an accomplished Red Seal chef who created menus for some of most successful well known establishments in British Columbia. Your senses will be awakened enjoying tantalizing food for the palate while gazing out to the vast ocean views which was the main focus in the design process.

Spectacular panoramic waterscape views welcome you as you enter the main entrance for the two restaurants. Design elements make use of French provincial flair and modern West Coast accents featuring beautiful wine displays, soft woods, stone and antique tile finishes. Centralized in the AQUA Bistro & Wine Bar is an inviting New York style bar with rich marble countertops sourced from Vancouver Island’s top quarries. On beautiful sunny days, two large garage doors will open up to the patio enticing you to sit outside and bask in the warm sun with breathtaking views of the ocean and the beloved lush Kingfisher gardens. The new oversized outdoor fire pit will be a romantic spot to cozy up to watch the spectacular wildlife and sunsets. The adjoining space, Ocean 7 Restaurant, maintains a fine dining atmosphere with view tables and cozy booths, stair stepped to allow amazing vistas for all.

The dining experience will be one that will draw local residents to meet for casual drinks with friends or to celebrate their most cherished occasions and holidays.
