Fernwood Inn is committed to providing locally sourced organic products, wild seafood, and Victoria’s best micro brews. They have a large dining room and an outdoor patio. They also have a private Art Room that can be reserved for groups of over 60 people.

You can’t miss this building as it is large and yellow. I came by after work with my coworkers and we had a quick dinner before heading back to Vancouver.

fernwood-inn-mussel

Saltspring Island Mussels ($13) is steamed with oven roasted tomatoes, crispy pancetta, and a garlic butter white wine sauce. It is served with garlic toast. There was lots of mussels in this dish and it was enough for 4 people.

Those mussels were really plump and delicious. It was really good! The broth was perfect for dipping bread into.  Mmm Mmm Mmm I love garlic and of course mussels.

fernwood-inn-burger

Fernwood Burger  ($13 + $1.50) has a sirloin beef patty, lettuce, tomato, onion and smoked paprika aioli on a ciabatta bun. We added sauteed mushrooms on top.

fernwood-inn-curry

Thai Curry Prawns ($9.50) has black Tiger pawns sauteed in a coconut curry with sweet mango chutney, cilantro, lime and bean sprouts. Served with garlic toast.

Look at that prawn hiding inside.

fernwood-inn-jambalaya

Wild Rice Jambalaya ($17) has organic brown and wild rice sautéed with creole vegetables, slow simmered with prawns, clams, ham and chorizo sausage in a spicy tomato broth. There is garlic toast on the side.

fernwood-inn-salad

The “Inn” Salad ($12) has triple cream brie, wild blueberries, butter roasted macadamia nuts, tart apple vinaigrette and greens. It was a decent salad. The ingredients were fresh, but I didn’t feel like all these ingredients really blended together. The macadamia nuts were really delicious.

Overall, it was a nice casual place to dine and their patio is much more relaxing than their dining area. If it’s a nice sunny day, definitely go sit at the patio.
