Enjoy the warm culture of our city and let your taste buds guide you through the abundance of both local and international flavours. Our fantastic array of restaurants offer everything from the latest in gourmet trends to the ultimate world of comfort food, and of course, everything in between.
Vancouver Island’s temperate climate and rich soils provide the perfect growing conditions for all kinds of crops … from the grapes that created your dinner wine, to the crisp organic greens and herbs in your salad, to the delicate flavour of the ostrich you decided to try for the first time. Local means fresh.
As leaders in the ‘eat local’ food movement, Victoria residents are known for our commitment to sustainable agriculture and aquaculture. It really isn’t surprising that our chefs also take great pride in showcasing the very best that our local farmers, ranchers, and fishermen have to offer. After all, they are creating culinary adventures for all of us … ‘fresh’ tastes so incredible on the west coast!
Be sure to bring your appetite, enjoy all that Victoria’s culinary diversity has to offer, and savour some of our local delicacies.

Brunch, dinner, casual cocktails or romantic evening, you won’t find a more picturesque place to enjoy West Coast cuisine.
