Top 15 Restaurants in Victoria, BC

Wondering where to eat in Victoria? We’ve been living here for eight years now, and we’re thrilled to share that the city has become quite a foodie paradise.

One of our favorite things to do in Victoria is to treat ourselves to a fine dinner – especially as it means skipping the kitchen duties!

No surprise – but most of the top restaurants (date night and high-end ones) are found downtown, within easy walking distance of many of the city’s best hotels.

Ferris’ Upstairs Seafood & Oyster Bar

This restaurant has quickly charmed its way into becoming one of our new favorite restaurants in Victoria for dinner. Upstairs, the atmosphere, while cozy, is more refined.



Brasserie L’Ecole

The restaurant serves classic French-style food in a brasserie setting. We’re talking wood floors, wood tables, brick-red walls and candlelight, all contributing to a cozy vibe.


Café Brio

As they’re a few blocks away from downtown, Café Brio is not on the usual tourist trail. But they’re always busy with locals (and visitors who’ve done their research).


Courtney Room

This award-winning fine dining restaurant offers a fresh take on modern Pacific Northwest cuisine. They showcase local ingredients, complemented by a superb wine list.
