Sonora Resort

Fine Dining


Dining Experience

Sonora Resort tells the story of the land and sea through culinary experiences that reflect the bounty of the West Coast. The approach means guests feast on local fare that is provided from sustainable sources, inspired by the changing seasonal harvest. 

Culinary Philosophy

From organic meats and locally-caught seafood to tender micro-greens, the culinary team works with local suppliers to source the finest and freshest ingredients. Their goal is to take guests on a journey, creating memories that are as exciting and wild as the resort’s surroundings. Guest’s senses are elevated and the food presentation is modern, all the while keeping the overall fine dining experience relaxed and approachable.

The dining experience is the product of intense collaboration accomplished by a cohesive team of passionate chefs, sommeliers, and service staff. Representing a wealth of insights born from years of cumulative travel, education, and immersion in their craft, each team member brings a unique perspective that is experienced by its guests.

The Tyee Dining Room

Perched over swirling Rapids, where it’s common to see Bald eagles, Harbour seals, Steller sea lions and large marine mammals feasting in the nutrient-rich waters nearby, the Tyee Dining Room is Sonora’s principal culinary establishment.

Inspired by nature, the Dining Room features sweeping windows that frame the ocean view, a large live aquarium teeming with marine life from the surrounding waters, a grand piano and a unique artwork collection.

Complement the exquisite talents of Sonora’s culinary team with wine from its award-winning cellar, which features more than 1,500 bottles and over 400 selections of local and internationally sourced varietals.

About British Columbia

In Canada’s westernmost province, fresh local bounty, talented chefs, and a melting pot of cultures combine to make British Columbia a top culinary destination. It’s a rich tapestry supported by farmers, growers, and producers whose ingredients shape menus in communities along the Pacific Ocean, in the Rocky Mountains, and everywhere in between.

Here, Indigenous cultures who have been nurturing the land for millennia showcase traditional offerings with a modern twist. Other multicultural influences inspire chefs and artisan food producers to blend local ingredients with global flavours. Dishes also vary widely, depending on place, creating distinctive regional dining scenes—from wild salmon sushi in Tofino to down-home guest ranch cooking in the Cariboo to delicate dim sum in Richmond. 

Victoria, the province’s capital, boasts more restaurants per capita than almost anywhere else in Canada, while Vancouver, BC’s most populous city, was recently recognized with several MICHELIN Stars, further elevating the city’s reputation as an international dining destination. Wine touring, spirits, and local beer are hugely popular here, too, in the Fraser Valley near Vancouver, on Vancouver Island, and especially along the Okanagan Valley lakeside, where seasonal pours provide the perfect finish to a day of hiking, biking, and swimming.
