Tips for Eating Well in Victoria (mid-range price)
I was surprised to learn that many people don't know Victoria has so many fantastic restaurants! One of the highest eatery-to-resident ratios in North America!
So if you don't already know this, you've got to come over and dine and walk the villages or waterfront, then dine some more, then go watch the sun set into the Pacific over a glass of something yummy.
Here are some of my favourite places. And I dine out A LOT. All of these are vegetarian friendly and some may be vegan friendly, too. (And yes they are meat and fish eater friendly except for Re-Bar which doesn't serve birds and meat.)
Ulla - eclectic, yummy.
Pagliacci's - What is left to say? A Victoria tradition. They never advertise. They are always busy.
Re-Bar - Delicious, west coast, seafood and veggie food, juice bar, baking.
Ferris' (down or up) - Another locals-in-the-know place
Blue Crab - Elegant, view of the harbour
The Snug in Oak Bay - Pub, view, Victoria tradition.
Il Terrazzo - Italian, romantic, popular, buzzing
The Oyster - oysters and more, good drinks. Don't go if you're really hungry; you will spend too much.
The Argyle Attic - pub food, unique atmosphere
Oh, the pubs! Plenty to choose from, here are some favs: Canoe, Garrick's Head, Bard & Banker, Penny Farthing, Flying Otter, Spinnaker's.
I am running out of room here and haven't scratched the surface. There is so much to explore, foodwise here. Have fun!
