Restaurant Matisse

A little more expensive but definitely worth it. The French inspired menu can be perfectly paired with extensive wine selection and if you are not a culinary expert do not worry the wait staff is extremely helpful. The succulent dishes and cozy atmosphere make for an excellent dining experience.

Red Fish Blue Fish

Probably considered more of a food truck than a traditional restaurant the Red Fish Blue Fish is a must try for anyone that is down by the waterfront wharfs, the line is worth the wait. Open daily from 11 am to 8 pm the outdoor eatery offers great tempura style fish and chips, oysters, salmon and halibut as well as sandwiches and Tacones. With more than 700 “excellent” reviews on Red Fish Blue Fish can be confirmed as a must eat.

Brasserie L’Ecole

Bringing a classic French bistro feel Brasserie L’Ecole is a great spot to catch up with friends over a meal or even bring a first date if you are looking t impress. But get there early because there can be a line and they unfortunately do not take reservations. The menu of hearty eats and extensive wine and beer selections have something for everyone. Bon Appetit.

Hanks Untraditional BBQ

Driven by passion and striving for flavour Hank’s offers their own unique takes on bbq. Described as “the best bbq in Victoria, hands down. Unpretentious, delicious and truly amazing food.” by one yelp reviewer. Their experienced chefs sources all the meats and vegetables locally to bring you a fresh cut every time.

The Blue Fox Cafe

Possibly the best breakfast in the city. With an emphasis on using local and fresh ingredients the eclectic little spot plays host to a happening crowd daily. The menu headliner would probably be the eggs benedict of which there are no less than ten different types but that is not to say that their gourmet burgers or Moroccan chicken are not delicious as well. the interior brick walls and relaxing atmosphere make it a great spot to grab a bite in downtown Victoria.

Ithaka Greek Restaurant

The family owned and operated restaurant strives to celebrate their Greek culture through healthy and authentic prepared dishes. With ‘Mama” specials this is as close to a home cooked Greek meal you can get away from the Mediterranean.
