Brasserie L'École

1715 Government St.
Victoria, British Columbia, V8W 1Z4, Canada
TEL: (250) 475-6260

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. Starters include Medjool dates stuffed with Roquefort and smoked almonds, as well as a classic French onion soup au gratin. The moules frites feature local Quadra Island mussels and French fries, while the restaurant's namesake burger comes topped with Gruyère, endive, and bacon. The design in the high-ceiling dining room also hits a strong French note, with Henri de Toulouse posters, dark wood trim, and bold red walls.

Insider Tip:

The restaurant doesn't accept reservations, so put your name on the waitlist and grab a drink at the brewpub in the Swans Suites Hotel nearby.
