Known for its elevated setting and soaring views of the wild West Coast, Villa Eyrie overlooks the Saanich Inlet with eagles overhead and sea underfoot. Offering luxury accommodations and service in the skies. Executive Chef, Carmen Ingham leads the culinary team at Villa Eyrie Resort’s Summit Restaurant, which was recently named one of the top 30 new restaurants in Canada by enRoute. Previously the former sous chef at Relais & Chateaux property Sonora Resort, he was a Canadian finalist in the 2016 San Pellegrino Young Chef competition, and recognized as the "Le Creuset Rising Star" of the 2013 Hawksworth Young Chef Scholarship.

His cooking truly personifies his coastal British Columbia roots, while his Italian heritage complements Summit’s Tuscan-style.
