Locals consistently rank Elements, which is found in Summit Lodge, as having the best tapas in the area. It's a hip eatery where everyone from animated thirtysomethings to jet-setting families with young children occupy the comfy suede banquettes and booths. The draw here is the open-concept kitchen that produces locally inspired small plates that are perfect for sharing. Steamed Salt Spring Island mussels with lemongrass, kaffir lime, and coconut green curry are yummy, as are the spicy chicken drumsticks, venison mini-burgers with Gruyère, and the signature bruschetta. Pair your small plates with fine Canadian wines. The restaurant is open for breakfast, too, when several variations of eggs Benedict are the stars.
