The staff (owners?) are very friendly and welcoming. They made us feel right at home and got all the tables into conversation. The food was even better - no soggy vegetables here! I wish we got to Victoria more often for a return visit.

We had a buffet lunch here. The friendly owners go out of their way (without being pushy) to make you feel welcome and to tell you anything you want to know about their establishment. We loved the variety and the freshness of the food. Their...More
