Places to Eat in Victoria

As with places to stay in Victoria there is also no shortage of excellent places to eat, again suitable for every budget and to suit every taste as well!


Within Downtown Victoria there are a great many choices – seafood restaurants are always popular and you can also find an example of many of the great popular cuisines from around the world; Greek, Italian, Chinese, Indian and Japanese to name a few, though for visitors who prefer a more Canadian meal in familiar surroundings, Victoria also has its share of common ‘chain’ restaurants, such as The Keg, Milestones and more.

The Greater Victoria.com website has a comprehensive list of restaurants in Downtown Victoria and further afield too.

Afternoon Tea

Taking Afternoon Tea has become quite the tradition in Victoria and there are several places where you can enjoy the experience yourself.

The Fairmont Empress has the experience down to a tee!! Definitely the Fairmont has just the right ambiance, being a luxurious and historic hotel.
