Service very attentive, food mostly good, but the fish in the fish & chips had too much batter for my liking.

We were staying at the Inn at Laurel Point and decided to have breakfast "in" as it was pouring outside. We watched the storm through floor-to-ceiling windows as we ate our perfect breakfast.

AURA waterfront restaurant + patioWitness the ultimate appetizer: Victoria’s sparkling inner harbour as experienced from AURA waterfront restaurant + patio. Local, modern, west coast, Pacific Rim cuisine created by Executive Chef Takashi Ito and his team. Artisan wines and distinctive cocktails all served up with a side order of fresh ocean air, sailboats and waves. Stone underlit bar, leather sofas and lamplit tables, all part of this casually elegant dining room. At AURA you will feel at ease in jeans or in pearls or a bit of both.So come and dine different.
