Victoria BC Restaurants

Quality and Variety is what  defines the Victoria BC restaurant scene.

People in Victoria BC are Devoted to Great Cooking, Great Eating and  Good Life

We have tasted from mouth watering smoky hot dogs shop to super high-end restaurants serving  top quality a la carte menus.

This is the town we discovered the original west coast style fusion cuisine.  Our "taste buds" fell in love with food and unique flavor.

You see, in Victoria food is a serious business.  Restaurants in Victoria have to feed millionaires, VIPs visiting Victoria each year.

The best weather in Canada attracts so many tourists each year to Victoria.  Small, mid size or large restaurant owners, chefs have to be prepared and ready for next Hollywood or  Bollywood star, Celebrity Politician arriving in their private jet or personal yacht   etc. .... 

So again the quality of the food in restaurants have to be extra super with a touch of unexpected flavor to feed their unexpected guests.

Some Victoria BC restaurants are located right at the ocean front where we can see seaplanes landing, sailing  boats and ships.  There are some spots where we share our meal  with seagulls.  There are restaurants in downtown where we can see  harbor seals popping up their heads out of the ocean so close to us - Looking for food.

One tip finding a good restaurant is to look for the crowd.  Generally the food is good if you see more people dining in.
