Restaurants in Victoria

At this cozy sanctuary of candlelight and stained glass, you can canoodle over ginger-glazed duck breast or herb-crusted local halibut.

Though the building is a former Chinese schoolhouse in the middle of Victoria’s historic Chinatown, Brasserie L'École serves a daily-changing menu of seasonal French-country cuisine.

The waterfront gastropub Spinnakers serves creamy Fanny Bay oysters, rich seafood chowder, and the pub’s own ESB cask ale, served on a deck overlooking the harbor.

Run by a brother and sister team, the restaurant is lauded for its simple Italian bistro fare.

Marked by a massive, three-dimensional sign out front, Don Mee Seafood Restaurant has been in Victoria's Chinatown for more than 80 years.
