Home/Plan Your Visit/Playbill Dining Room

The complete Chemainus Theatre experience begins in the Playbill Dining Room. Great food, warm hospitality, and live music ensure your visit with us is a special occasion and a delectable start to every performance.

Our Executive Chef prepares an original menu for every show – as creative as our productions.  Most menus (except Fridays) feature an impressive hot buffet with a fresh seasonal salad bar, delicious starters, followed by an abundance of delectable desserts! Complement this array of culinary delights with a beverage from our specialty menu of wines, beers, and estate ciders.

Friday evening Table d’hôte features a plated meal service. Start with soup and salad bar, savour one of the delicious choices from Herb & Garlic Crusted Beef Striploin with Creamed Spinach and Rosemary Roasted Potatoes, Spanish Summer Seafood or Vegetarian Paella with Garlic Crostinis,  to Roast Porchetta with Celery Root Purée, Charred Baby Fennel and Cowichan Valley Tomatoes, before digging into the dessert bar.
