Fatima has long been one of the best chefs in the Cowichan Valley and a recent visit to Vinoteca showed that she is cooking as well as ever. The only criticism I could offer has to to with the limited selection of wines, all of which come from Zanata's own vineyard -- a few reds from the Okanagan would be... More

Four of us had lunch at Vinotecha, each having a different main course. My wife and I had the Yam soup which was just as good as it had Benin at Bistro 161. The main courses that we had (near balls, chicken, steak and crab cakes) were deemed by all of us to be excellent as was the Creme brûlée.

We have been here 5-6 times and with every visit can not fault their food or service. Always fresh and well executed, with mostly locally sourced food. Patio delightful with food that is consistently great with very good salads and good wine matches. We always enjoy their sparkling wine. Not as high profile as others but well worth the visit...

Amazing lunch if pork belly and beans. And perfect mussels and clams. The sparkling wine flight was wonderful. We purchased a case of their wine. This is the oldest winery on Vancouver Island. We came here after having a sampling of their wine from Butchart Garden. What a wonderful find.

Excellent, farm to the table. Very tasty and fresh. Sunday morning brunch with their sparkling wine was good pairing. Chef Fatima cooks from her heart .

We arrived a bit early for our reservation for four at 12 to 1230 reservation. They had misread the email set the table for 12 and ignored the phone call to correct their mistake. I felt like they were laying their mistake on me with the grilling I got. Finally we were seated in a decent table outside the tasting... More

I come up here a couple of times a year with friends. The food is always local and fresh. The menu changes with the seasons and is always delicious and beautifully presented. The service is friendly and personable - and the wine - why , its made right there. What more can you ask for a a warm Summers day... More

This spot is a beloved Cowichan gem. Now open year-round. Chef Fatima whips up delectable plates. Dine outside on the covered porch if you can. Inside is also cozy with local art, fireplace, and the charm of a restored farmhouse. You can't go wrong with anything on this menu. Spinach salad is supreme. Pastas, seafood, savories. Enjoy it with Zanatta... More
